Be mindful too that the St Olaves sites are difficult too - the moorings are not all available full tide and are often drying. Well they probably wouldn't be if you dredged them properly but that then raises more problems!!!

As you have probably realised, plots like that are virtually impossible to find and if you do, there is usually some kind of issue. Otherwise everyone would be after them.

The only way perhaps is to buy one with a house on it but then you may not have that kind of money I guess?

Thanks for your input , pushing barrows long distance on unmade tracks definitely doesn’t appeal to us, parking is important, going to be a difficult search but if you don’t seek you won’t find !

Still searching !

What size mooring do you need ? There are a couple of moorings in a quiet marina that are currently rented out but may be able to purchase from 1st April 2020.

Thanks for your reply Herberts, we thought 40 foot to purchase would give us flexibility with boat purchase, a mooring to purchase in Horning would definitely be of interest to us, do you know parking arrangements for them ?

Regards

Have tried to reply to your PM but out on river and having trouble with internet. The two moorings have a max length of 30ft so doesn't sound like they are suitable for you.

Is there a particular reason for wishing to purchase rather than rent a mooring?

£40,000 will cover many many years of mooring fees at a good spot with parking and all the facilities in place - such as electric hook up and water, without the costs associated with  maintainance of quay heading/parking areas, cutting the grass etc. You also have the option to swap locations - be it simply for a change or to enjoy another area completely, such as go South for a couple of seasons.

Just my two penneth, after 14 years of boat ownership we find a rented annual mooring is by far the easier option, but we are not retired so don't have the time that you may have to look after a mooring plot as well as a boat!

Best wishes with your search and do let us know what you find.

I suppose buying your own mooring is a little like buying your house, money spent on rent is kinda wasted where as buying a plot should achieve a profit when it is sold further down the line..

Yeah , I fully understand the investment principle, and it's a big thing between renting or owning your own home over many years of working life. However, I was just referring to the positive aspects of an annual mooring which is what a very large percentage of boat owners do, with mooring ownership being rarer, other than those lucky enough to live beside the water and have river frontage.

I wonder what those £40k +++ moorings were fetching 10-15 years ago ? I bet their inflation busting increases even taking ongoing maintenance costs into account.
Having had boats on the Broads for 25 years plus with about six changes of location, l like the idea of being able to hire moorings in different spots enabling different areas to be explored.
