First Time Owners


Recommended Posts

Hello all, we are hoping to move to beccles soon and considering purchasing our own boat after years of hiring, we have checked mooring prices around beccles, but we need to know what we have to do annually to the boat, regarding  licences, insurance, maintenance, services, & costs, basically what we need to do to keep it ship shape & legal ETC, as mentioned we will be first time owners and any help appreciated as we know little
Thanks for any advice David

My boat a Hampton  25.Tolls moorings  BSS,insurance,maintenance  running  costs about 3k.I prefer moorings  with loos,electric,security  etc.There are cheaper  options .YOu pay your money and take you're choice.Also allow a reserve  fund.With boating something always comes along that's unexpected.

And it always costs a sodding fortune....

Anything you can find without a boat picture on the box will be 10x cheaper for the same thing.
