Hello, I am a newbee to this website although I have been on The Broads in hire boats for many years. I have owned my own boat for about twenty five years and have trailered her around the canals and rivers of this country.

I used to use the Gt. Yarmouth Port and Haven moorings outside the Swan pub for many trips through Gt. Yarmouth. They are now closed for very understandable safety reasons. I belive there are moorings for private boats in town on a temporary basis. I have Googled for information to no avail.

Do any private boat owners know the following information:

Would I have to pay harbour dues if I went downstream into the Yare?

What are the charges for mooring at the public moorings?

I now bypass Gt. Yarmouth as I regard the fee for stopping to be exobitant.

Many thanks for any information.

Tiddler.

Town hall quay, but it's not very nice and you'll need a big ball of string. Are you just stopping whilst in transit down or up the coast or entering the broads system?

Thanks for the replies, Roya, Antares_9 and Stranger.

To answer David's question, I do not approach The Broads via the coast. My little old tub is usually put in The Broads at a convenient slipway; Potter Heigham, Burgh St Peter, Reedham, etc.

As I said in my original post, I would be interested in mooring at what appears to be "The Town Quay" moorings. The gist of my enquiry was; would I be liable for harbour dues? and are there any fees for using this mooring?

Since the abolition of the moorings adjacent the Swan pub (for very understandable reasons) I no longer stop at at Gt. Yarmouth and as I am usually single handed on my boat and the cost is not worth the pleasure attained.

Not sure about the official charging regime but I have never been charged on the three or four occasions I had to tie up there, I would only stay there in an emergency, it is not nice at all and you’ll be fiddling with your lines all night and they will need to be REALLY long.

Cheers for the info Antares. Looks like I will plug on through Gt Yarmouth from now on. Shame really.

On a happy note!!!!! I am hoping to be bobbing around when the forum thingy is about this year.
