New Purchase


Recommended Posts

Hello Norfolk broads. 

I've just bought a 40ft narrow boat, at the moment moored at Stoke Ferry on the whissey. 

Once I've cleaned, sorted and changed some bits on the boat I am bringing me and my new home back to Norfolk Suffolk water.

Very excited and look forward to meeting other Loverly people that live on the water.

talk soon

While a 40x6 ft boat costs the same as a 20x12 ft boat (theoretically) in river tolls, most broads moorings are sold by the length of the boat only meaning narrow boats get to pay somewhat out of proportion unless you have a wide beam narrow boat?

When we bought our Centaur what we would really have liked was a Catalac 8m. But having young children we really needed a marina berth and the same applied in all the South Coast Marinas, Cats pay double! I can still remember her dimensions:

27ft x 13ft 6 ins x 2ft 4ins. The draft would have been very usefull in Poole Harbour.
