Is it Ok to use a RIB with outboard on the Broads and if so, do you need a special permit? What is the law regulation the use of a power boat on tidal waters? Would  a licence be required to use a RIB on the Thames? Can you launch a RIB from any beach?

Other members may be able to give you more insight but you can surely use a RIB on the broads providing you pay the appropriate toll.  This can be paid annually or on a visitor basis.  Its also worth mentioning although you havent enquired that there are speed restrictions on the broads, you see boats opening up on breydon water, there may be other places but im not sure!

Hi, and welcome,

Nothing to stop you launching or using a RIB (as long as you pay the required tolls), but the only way you'll get off tickover is on Breydon Water! Speed limits vary between 3 and 6 MPH on all the rivers, and are enforced quite rigorously. Breydon is unrestricted, as far as speed limits go.

Sorry, know nothing about the Thames.


Regards, Ray.

It's the 21st century . . . so where's my nuclear-powered flying car, then?

Breydon is unrestricted, as far as speed limits go.
But for how much longer?

As Ray says Breydon is unrestricted as far as speed goes...but there is also a requirement within the navigation by law section 10, to navigate with care, 10 b(i) (ii) (iii) deal with the effects of speed.

Certainly a visitor I know received a formal warning after causing excess wash on Breydon.  His wife even published the unredacted formal warning on her boating website.

Thank you for your reply. Can you tell me what the toll is for a day visitor? David

Indeed it is, (an unknown answer).

Could be another year, could be the next 100 years....

I suspect it will be rather less than 100 years, especially if the big boys fail to rein in when passing smaller boats.

Let's hope that the overwhelming majority of considerate "big boys" don't have their navigation rights diminished by anyone's "suspicions" of something that would be grossly unfair to their usage of the Broads.
