Rock Channel Marine has been trading in Rye for nine years now and is firmly established as one of Rye’s premier boatyards and maintenance providers, writes Rebekah Gilbert. A change of management structure sees proprietor Andi Rivett taking the business to the next step of its development. Located at the top of Rock Channel, Rock Channel Marine has 15 berths and hard-standing for a number of boats. The company is able to provide full maintenance for all types of vessel, from classic wooden yachts, fibreglass sailing boats, dinghies and motor and power boats, to fishing ketchs. There are full crane-lift facilities, wood and metal work rooms, a paintshop and repairs. Additional services such as surveys or canvas repairs can be facilitated. If you’re looking for advice on your boat, Rivett can be contacted on 077144 68333 or by email. Berths very occasionally become available.
