Hi, I'm planning to get a Luxemotor dutch barge (60ft x 15ft / 18.3m x 4.6m) built and would like to moor it in a quiet rural location ideally within 1 hours drive of Diss. Does anyone know of/have moorings? It's not a 'liveaboard' I will spend 3-4 days a week on it Smile

Thanks

Jan

Hi Jan,

Just spent two days anti fouling the boat at Brundall.
Talking to the yard owner he tells me that a number of
his colleagues further down the road have been
struggling to find owners who want moorings this year.
Seems that this year is the problem for the credit
crunch. Never been so many boats for sale at this yard.
None of them finding buyers so far. Just drive past the
Yare public house and make a personal approach to the
yards. You will have no problem I am sure.....

Would a 15 foot barge get through Ludham Bridge?   Should be fun watching it go through all the moored boats that can congregate there in the summer, not forgetting all the twists and turns.   Is there not a rule about the width of boats on the Broads?

45 foot max on the Broads? Worth checking with the Broads Authority.

The maximum length and beam before restrictions come in are 46feet and 12feet 6inches.  Exceed either of these and the exclusions, including the Ant and Chet start.  Over 14feet 6inches beam incurs even more restrictions.  The BA does allow certain agreed movement in restricted waters.

Yes, too long and too wide I'm afraid, according to:

Wholly unsuitable for the Broads hence the existing restrictions.
