Canal boatyards, marinas & moorings on English & Welsh canals & waterways
If you own your own canal boat or are thinking of buying one, and don't intend to 'continuously cruise'
the canals, you'll need somewhere to moor. There are 'online' moorings
(or 'towpath' moorings) along many stretches of canals but the increasing trend is towards mooring off the main line of the canal, in marinas or boatyards. Canal marinas and canal boatyards can provide more security, a range of useful services and less chance of disturbance to your moorings by passing boats.
Some boatyards concentrate on canal boat servicing and maintenance but many also provide moorings. Both marinas and boat yards frequently offer the same maintenance and repair services and may sell second hand and new canal boats. Wherever possible we have given an email address and indicated the range of facilities available.
