Hi, exploring the possibility and costs of share of a small boat (max 16-20 ft) for cruising and fishing on the north broads.

Anybody know of moorings available in the Neatishead, Ludham, Barton, Stalham area?

Nothing fancy just somewhere out of the way where we can safely tie up. Amenities not absolutely neccessary but within reasonable distance of civilisation.

To add to above, just missed out on a nice little starter day-boat on Ebay, so also on the lookout for something of that nature.

Ideally suited to family days out or enough fishing space for three people.

I like the classic traditional style, and if engine and mooring available as per above then even better.

Welcome to the forum, there are a number of websites, boats and outboards for instance that may help in your search, also Boat Mart magazine caters for smaller boats and is often a useful read too. If you don’t live too far from the Broads and have a bit of space at home then you might even consider trailering, it can save quite a bit on cost and often gives a bit more choice to your cruising / fishing areas and there are a number of launch sites around both north and south. Good luck with your search.

Hi Jezza, welcome from me too. Have you considered a Norman 18 or 20?. They are great little boats and can be found at very reasonable cost, and can also be trailored so no need for a mooring, providing you have somewhere to to store it. Take a look at the Norman owners website wher there is a for sale section, advertising lots of Normans of different lengths, a number of which can be found already on the broads, possibly with existing moorings. Regards .............. Neil.
