Hi,

We are farirly new to this but we're buying a boat (20-22ft) and are having problems finding a place to moor.

Does anyone have any suggestions/web sites of places with availability?

We would prefer he south broads but anywhere would be a start!

Thanks in advance.

Hi welcome to the forum,

Their are three place that spring to mind that you could try,

www.waveneyrivercentre.co.uk
large moorings with swimming pool, pub and shop just near to the Oulton Dyke, entrance to Oulton Broad.
www.ayb.co.uk
A yacht brokers and reasonalby large marina at St Olaves, however you need to be aware of the currents on that stretch.
www.riverine.co.uk
A hire boatyard with moorings, whose owner is also a member on the forum.

Hope that helps

Keith

Couldn't have asked for a better response to our forum posting.

Thank you for the tips everyone, I will check out those moorings.

What is the situation with licensing and any other tolls on the broads?

I appreciate all your help!

Thanks Again.

If the boat you are buying is already licensed and registered on the Broads then all you need to do is contact the Broads Authority and let them know you now own the boat. The toll runs from 1st April to 31st March and once paid is non transferrable or refundable and stays with the boat. The only exception would be if you changed the use of the boat, ie for hire as they pay more in tolls.

If your planning on bringing a boat to the Broads, then it will need to be registered with the BA and a toll paid. a 20-22 foot boat would be around a £100, it is worked out on square metres.

welcome to the site lots of help at hand as you now know if you want it ,
when you get your boat you have to register it in your name like a car ,broads tolls comes out yearly end of march every year ,but you can get in touch with the Broads Authority at norwich colgate 01603 610734 or pop into b.a infomation centers at beccles , gt yarmouth ,wroxham,ranworth,or read other posts after this one,
cheers   Smile

Are there any smaller, less well equipped moorings that anyone knows of.  If we can get away with it, we'd prefer to pay a bit less than some of the big marina charges.

Thanks

Hi Newowner, welcome although it may not seem like it, as the yard owner aforementioned I am being rung on almost a daily basis with regard to moorings. In short they are like dragon's teeth. If you can find one take it. The situation may change in the autumn but at the moment it is very much, all full. If you are thinking of buying a boat for the first time make sure you have a moooring to go with it for at least the first six months. Scared

I know you knew what you were doing, dear, but you still hit the other boat! Bill...
