Boatyards, marinas & moorings on UK canals & waterways

Places to moor your canal boat or barge

Most boat owners who are not ‘continuously cruising’ will need to pay for a mooring place for their boat on UK canals and rivers and to enable them to licence their boat.

  • Long term Moorings are available ‘online’ along some waterways, usually on the non-towpath side.
  • Marinas and boatyards may offer long and short term moorings off the main line of the canal. 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, than online moorings.
  • Marinas and boat yards frequently offer similar maintenance and repair services and also may sell second hand and new canal boats.
  • Not all boatyards provide moorings, some concentrate on canal boat servicing and maintenance.
  • Wherever possible we give an email address and indicate the range of facilities available.
