I was wondering what the feasibility would be for locating a permanent live-aboard mooring for a widebeam (or Dutch) barge on the Broads? It would be a wheelchair accessible craft and therefore would need suitable access from the side. Any advice/information gratefully received. Regards, Mark

Residential moorings for liveaboards are very limited in terms of numbers on The Broads. I believe they are like rocking horse poo! However, there are members on here who are part of the liveaboards community and will be able to offer specific sdvice.
With a particularly wide beam craft you may be better on the bigger southern rivers. What beam and length is your barge? There was a pretty large one up on the northerns for a season and I think they struggled when out and about to find anywhere to moor up but I am guessing you will stay put? Just bear in mind that you will need a moorimg that has the correct permission for residential rather than leisure use. The Broads Authority are hot on this .
If you know all this already, sorry! I'm sure you'll get more help
