Hi,

I'm new here, but brought up in Norfolk and very familiar with the Broads. I'm moving back to the county after a while living and working overseas and an ongoing divorce. The plan is to set up a small business and start over.

I really like the idea of living on the water – 1) for financial reasons 2) because I love the surroundings and being on boats – and am looking at buying a small vessel, somewhere between 27 and 35 feet, depending on layout.

Now, I know that liveaboard moorings are hard to find, particularly after the recent regrettable and shortsighted fiasco at Thorpe Island. Given that I'll be working a lot, I won't be able to commit to moving every 24 hours as a continuous cruiser.

In light of that, I'm really looking for boatyards that might, by some small chance, have official moorings, or others that might be amenable to a quiet, decent and responsible person keeping a low profile and living on their boat.

All help gratefully received.

Please, no moral judgements about this choice. I'm here for information, not to cause a flamewar.

Best wishes to you all.

Friends of ours use used to moor at St Olaves Marina moved their canal boat up towards Brundall way so moorings are about.     I do believe that their particular mooring is anything but cheap though.

Women dont nag they just
point

Hello Dave and welcome to the forum. There are a handful of sanctioned residential moorings at Waveney River Centre, Burgh St.Peter, which may not be close enough to Norwich for you.

The advice generaly with moorings is to foot-slog it round the boatyards and ask the question. I wish you the best of luck.

A marina I was at in Brundall did not advertise them but turned a "blind eye" as some marina owners like having folk around all the time, helps with security.

Good luck.

By their very nature those places  with blind eyes do not advertise or publicise as that will get them into trouble.

There are many moorings where people do exactly what you intend but it is done discreetly and below the radar. It is also much more expensive than many people anticipate.

In order to find them your best bet is to obtain a leisure mooring initially and once you are in the area start doing your own personal research. Brundall is a good start point.

Good luck

Graham

Welcome Dave.

Appreciate that you have stated you want only info and no hassle. As you are aware, the subject of liveaboards on The Broads is often a rather hot topic for many reasons as people have strong views, on both sides. We can't guarantee anything other than we moderate the forum and look out for any breaks in the terms of service.
