From what I can see 12 ' 6 " or less there is a restriction on leisure vessels of 42 '.     You can certainly go a lot wider on certain rivers.   I was looking at some of the Broom boats which have a beam of 13' 11 and they are up to the 42'.     I think I have my answer.

Thank you.

If there's a restriction of 42' on leisure vessels, the 43 (Moon Diamond as was), 44 (Moon Voyager as was) and 45 (Broadsman) footers on the system must have been mirages! Smile  You sure you don't mean 46'?

The very wide Brooms aren't supposed to use the Northern rivers due to their beam but a lot of them are seagoing anyway so it isn't really an issue for them..assuming they ever leave the marina that is!  Playful

I doubt some of the Brooms would get under the bridges at Great Yarmouth to get up North.      Some of those larger Brooms are really smart.

The length restrictions (14m or 46') don't apply to any boat registered with the BA or Gt Yarmouth Port & Haven Commissioners before 24th October 1991, so there are some larger hire boats that have 'grandfather rights' (and would continue to do so even if they left the Broads and later returned).

I was under the impression that cruisers were no wider than 12 foot ish or there abouts.    I did not realise that some were as wide as nearly 14 foot.    Where do these people find moorings for such wide vessels.   Most moorings are per length.
