Welcome to The Norfolk Broads Forum
This is THE Worlds Largest Forum devoted to the Norfolk Broads, here you can discuss issues about the Norfolk Broads. Or just somewhere to chat with others interested in the Norfolk Broads area.
First consider what size mooring you need. You may have a certain length in mind now but will this be big enough if you change your current boat. That might mean changing mooring if you decide to change boat.
Then consider its condition. Does it have a Quay heading that needs replacing. If it does then you need to budget for that.
Is the ground subsiding - Does the mooring have the required depth you need or is it silted up?
Access - Check the access rights - both by boat and also if there is parking and pedestrian access.
Covenants - Check if there are covenants that you are responsible for (particularly important if in a Marina)
Power / Water - Is there provision of shore power and water.
Security - Is it secure - An isolated mooring can be nice but at the same time if you are not there regularly - how is the security.
It can be nice to have your own mooring and it gives you a certain amount of control on the expenses but just think about the maintenance costs as well. Like everything else there are advantages and disadvantages.
