Boatyards, marinas & moorings on UK canals & waterways
Places to more your boat
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 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.
- Both marinas and boat yards frequently offer the same maintenance and repair services and 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.
