Finding a Mooring

Owning a canal boat give you the chance to explore in a completely different way, but whilst it can be one of the most enjoyable and relaxing forms of boating, it can be a bit of a nuisance at times.

Mooring a huge canal boat is a big problem in many towns, but you can overcome it if you plan out your journey in advance. It’s important to know that some mooring spots are designed specifically for canal boats, but residential vacancies are in short supply, so it is best to find a boat club, pub or restaurant.

You can find short term moorings in marinas, and this is an ideal option if you’re a continuous cruiser, however, you should do your research on marinas first, to avoid disappoint and a wasted journey. Finding permanent mooring is a lot easier than finding a short term spot, but there are options out there and you’ll find them if you do your homework.
