Hi all

Just wonder what engine size you can use on boats on the broads?
Also where do you register and how much?

Welcome Shane,

I'm not quite sure what you mean Broads boats are charged of the basis of their hull size (Block Area) and there is a maximum size of boat allowed on the Broads. There is no restriction on the size of engine.  In practice because of the low speed limits and maximum hull speeds engines over 2.5 litres or thereabouts are the exception rather than the rule.

Shane,

Take a look at http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/tolls-and-registration.html for info on tolls and registering. You can also find all the Broads byelaws here http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/navigating/byelaws.html including vessel dimensions and speed limits.

Hope this helps.

Keith

That would be for Short visit tolls I think Cliff, but a period of 1-7 days would be £20 and you are limited to no more than 28 days in the toll year (1st April) so if a regular visitor the annual fee is probably worth it.
