Long-term berths (sometimes called permanent docks or places of refuge) are plentiful, from fully equipped marinas to simple spots along the canal or river banks. Download more information about the garden space request. Most people prefer the safety and comfort of a berth in a marina or basin away from the main line of the canal or river. Be ready to redeem yourself. Berths are usually evaluated based on the length of the boat and the popularity of the area – supply and demand mean you pay more in the south, where land prices are highest, and it`s obvious that you`re asking for higher fees from sites offering more demanding services. Waterways World and Canal Boat Magazine both publish annual mooring supplements, full of useful tips, lists, and announcements — well if you`d rather browse paper. Be careful. Mooring agreements are for each boat owner personally and very rarely refundable from one boat owner to another. If someone offers you a boat at the dock, be very skeptical and ask for legal evidence that they have the right to pass on the mooring contract when selling the boat. Some long-term shelters from private residential land are often referred to as the end of shelters. Even if you own the land because Canal & River Trust is the owner of the canal bed, permission is required for the exclusive right to create a garden space at the end. If you would like to create new online berths or mooring stations for a business boat, please visit our business site for more information.

You need one of these docks for your boat if you don`t cross constantly. Most are offered by private companies or yacht clubs, either in offline marinas or online, along the canal or river banks in front of the treidel trail. Contracts can vary from three months to three years, so there is a great choice. Our Waterside Mooring site has a simple search function that allows you to find your nearest long-term berth, managed by our Waterside Moorings team. All berths are displayed on the site and if you see one highlighted green, it means that berths are currently available. Browse our vacancies on our Waterside Moorings to find your perfect spot…
