Hi

I'm in a bit of a tricky situation with a boat I want to buy. It can't stay at the current location (out of the water at Bureside Holiday Park) past Saturday without me visiting in person and seeing the boat, but I don't have the time to get there. And I don't live close by.

So I need to somehow move it to a mooring where it can stay for up to a month while I get everything ready to move onto it.

Does anyone know of any suitable moorings, have advice for moving it or any other suggestions? And it would be really useful if someone could let me know what sort of price I'd be looking at.

Thanks for any help!

The boat is a 22ft yacht, mast down, which I'm planning to live on as continuous cruiser - so no need for long-term mooring

Here's a little more clarification:

- the boat is currently out of the water at Bureside
Holiday Park, which looks to be 10 miles or so from
Horning. Generally the boats in storage there go
into the water on Saturday and I can't leave mine
there past that.

Because it's not easy for me to get there myself
before Saturday (or any time soon, really), ideally
I would need someone to transport the boat to its
temporary mooring as well.

What might be the cost for that and, say, a 2-week, 4-week, 6-week, or 8-week temporary mooring?

Also, space out of the water would be fine or maybe even preferable as an alternative - depending on the price for getting the boat into the water later on.

Thanks a lot for any help.

Hi Johnson's boat yard at St Olaves may be able to store it, phone Richard. Then phone a boat mover to move it for you you've left it a bit late.John

Hi

A chap called Norman rents out space in his field near reedham chain ferry for five pounds a week. You can find his details on gumtree if you search boats .

i know he currently has space , well he did as of two weeks ago when I moved out.

If you don't mind my saying so this all seems very rushed. If you are going to buy a boat which Is going to be your future home you really ought to at  least look at it first.

If nothing else a 22 foot sailing boat Is a tad on the small side for continuous cruising imho only of course.

Good luck

Graham

What sort of boat are you talking about? It's dimensions could make a lot of difference in finding a suitable mooring.

Edited to add; should have read your post more carefully.

Hi Nobo I forgot to say where ever you park it you will need a yard that has a crane to be able to lift it in the river userly £200=00 ish or there is a mobile crane hire at Lowestoft,unless its on a trolley in which case you will need a yard with a ramp or launch it yourself in which case a large 4x4 will be needed to tow to a ramp.John

I love it.

A new member claims to want to buy a boat which he hasn't seen.
And he wants to move that boat, which he does not yet own, to a place where it can stay - for "up to a month" until he is ready to move "onto it"

And then he ices the cake by saying, "The boat is a 22ft yacht, mast down, which I'm planning to live on as continuous cruiser - so no need for long-term mooring"

Ramjet would be proud.

Edit to acknowledge that the storage time for the boat is "up to a month" and not indeterminate as I originally mis-stated.

Look a bit wonky to me but if nobo proved that he owned the boat, insured the boat, registered the boat arranged for the boat to be craned into the water, had the engine serviced and run up and tested by the boatyard/leisure centre, had the fuel tank filled to the brim, found a place to temporarily moor it at the end of the journey I might be interested in moving it for him. All the above would have to be paid for by the owner. Also a cash payment when taking over the boat to offset my out of pocket expenses of £500 would need to be paid to me in cash (no £50 notes) at the boatyard/leisure centre to pay for my petrol getting there, parking for my car, taxi fares to get back to my car and anything else that crops up. Any breakdowns will have to be dealt with by the owner and I will have the option to abandon the boat safely tied up with no recourse to any claims against me on a reasonable public mooring if the engine goes pear shaped and I can no longer move it.  

I am very experienced in helming most types of craft and can sail but would not be interested in sailing the boat to its new temporary mooring.
