I had a look at it a few weeks ago,
Cant see how its been valued at that much !

IT will never be a boat yard again , due to the High Water levels at Potter Frown

The best that can be done is to Build Holiday Cottages there, but that will be very difficult under the new Flood guide lines Frown


I would value the place at next to nothing Frown  a very sad story i know, but lets face facts Frown

no Brian

all they need todo is rip up the tarmac and raise the banking a couple of feet and same goes for the surrounding area that affects the yard if i had a deep wallet i would pay max 50.000 that would be it for the amount of work that need to be done and then rebuilding might of been work 200k - 250k if they dint sell of the hire fleet

A 50 fft mooring at Brundall Bay marina just sold at £100k this is a bargain even for a 25 year lease, I bet it goes for nearer £300k

How long is the dyke and is this included? Presumably you could use this for small boat mooring - small Hardys, Freemans and the like?

You might get permission to raise the shed floors but the sheds are in pretty poor condition as well.

And when did their hire boats go? I thought they went years ago. Anyone recall the date or year when the hiring finished?

I looked on the Auction house site and the details are not up yet but the dyke was part of the yard assets as I understood it.

Steve, Marthem oats were specifically designed to navigate PH bridge, narrow eam etc. Todays cruisers are not but as Marshman says still a great spot for smaller cruisers and yachts.

Anyone seriously interested in buying the site may need to research whether outline planning permission granted to build two storey holiday flats there is extant or expired.

The mooring spaces will have a value, but, because of the bridge, no-one with anything other than a yacht or small weekender would surely wish to moor there.

I'm not sure that the whole dyke is included.  I believe the yard's moorings finish at the small boatshed part way along the dyke.  The remainder I think belongs to Martham Parish Council.

My understanding was that the yard was put into receivership.   Presumably the Royal Bank of Scotland
pulled the plug.
