MADISON BOATS PRIVATE BOAT STORAGE
We have two small watercraft marinas. Our downtown location, Brittingham Boats, offers on-shore racks to store canoes, kayaks and SUP's. Wingra Boats offers on-water pier storage of canoes, kayaks, SUPs, rowboats and small sailboats. It is our goal to make boat ownership enjoyable and to make getting out on the water easy. We hope you will consider us for your boats' summer home.
Store your boat on peaceful Lake Wingra! That way, all you have to do is bring your paddle and life jacket, and you're good to go!
Our friendly staff will even help you once you're here!
Depending on weather, the marina opens at the beginning of May through the third weekend of September.

Important things to know:
Please DO NOT PUT YOUR BOAT ON THE DOCK/RACKS without the assistance of our staff.
If this is your first year (or want a refresher) we are happy to give some tips on easiest way to get your boat in and our of the slip/rack.
Please lock up your boat. A 6-8' bike cable works well. We require combo locks (keys go in the water).
You are welcome to take your boat off site (we love to know so we are not worried), and you are welcome to let others use your boat. We assume if the person knows your combo, they have your permission.
We are happy to help you getting your boat to the water when we are not assisting rental customers.
You are welcome to use your boat outside our business hours (one of the main benefits). FYI park hours are 4 am to 10 pm.
You are welcome to modify your spot to protect/fit your boat (pool noodles/towels etc). If the spot needs physical alteration (too wide/too narrow,) please let one of our team members know AND send us an email so management can follow up.
