Hello all, we’re new to forum and new to boating ! looking to purchase a freehold mooring, We are a retired local couple and looking to spend retirement time on the river. We’ve thought about this for a long time and realise they don’t become available very often but are now in a position to try and secure our own mooring. We are aware of a few in the boatyards but would prefer a more peaceful location. Any advice or help greatly appreciated.
Strange indeed ! It seems if it’s advertised as land joining river you can’t moor your boat and if it’s advertised as mooring obviously you can ! ...... I think ? Going to be a steep learning curve this !
Hi and good luck. They do come up but you have to act like lightening to get one and probably pay over the odds as well. Herbert woods currently have them in their boat years for about £40 K and you are unlikely Y to get one anywhere nice for much less. Some at Beccles for £25 K but only 25 foot and no facilities.
Crabbets island Is a no go for mooring. There are historic plots with it but the BA fight tooth and nail to keep the rest as was intended which Is amenity land. If you see the word amenity in an advert steer well clear as it Is an ill defined term but basically means nothing permanent including sheds, caravans and mooring. Two weeks camping Is fine or a weekend bbq Is fine but that's about it.
Try using the trovit website and search mooring. That tends to pick up everything that Is for sale at any one time.
If you haven't already found them then Waterside Estate Agents sometimes have freehold mooring plots for sale and not just the ones in Herbert Woods. Several have come up and been quickly sold at Wayford recently.
Hello and welcome to the forum. The major things to think about are access, security and dredging in our opinion. As we mature the thought of pushing a barrow full of gear along a poorly maintained path would be daunting. Regards Marge and Parge
