Moorings Going South ?


Recommended Posts

we have been moored for the past 3 years in Wroxham at a well known yard,and are thinking of changing for a southern mooring next year.Ive looked at a lot of yards and marinas on line,but theres nothing like recommendations.We require electric, water,pump out ,an on site engineer would be good.We have cruised the southern rivers before,and were really looking for a change of scene..Also any body wanting to "go the other way",perhaps we could do a swap? Its not written in stone that we will make the move,but the crew are considering it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.:594c04f0e761f_default_AnimatedGifVehiclessaily:

Have a think in advance about if you want a floating pontoon or not. It does not make much odds at Wroxham, but certainly something to consider on the South

Distance by car is not a problem as we travel up from Kent so if any thing the southern rivers are nearer.As soon as the boat is loaded then were of cruising ( well as soon as the wife has had here fill of Roys ! ).I suppose pontoons are the best option,so how do non pontoons moorers get on with the rise and fall of the tides, my wifes knees arnt that good so the easiest option for getting aboard would be good.Thanks to every one so far for there comments.

I don't think the tide is so much of an issue further up river. Brooms possibly have pontoons but a cheque book job I suspect.

I Moor in Brooms,  not the prettiest marina but does have floating pontoons which does make life easier, 

Cost wise i thought was inline with the others we looked at

Plenty of non-floating pontoon moorings, fine with springs.  Not an issue.

Brundall Gardens is quite good.  No pump out as far as I can remember (it's been 2 or 3 years since we were there).  

It also depends what type of boating you do; if you want to have a blast across Breydon or go to sea frequently, the Reedham is probably the best location although limited facilities, or Oulton Broad/other side of Mutford lock.  Lowestoft Haven is very nice, but you can't get into the Broads except by Mutford.
