All about moorings

It's all about the moorings

Coquet Yacht Club has many members of many different requirements. For the members who do not wish to partake of the nearby Amble Marina for boat moorings we have the Club river moorings available.

CYC currently has 28 riverbed fore and aft chain based moorings available for use with capacity to extend as required. Most moorings are drying moorings with a few maintaining a draft of approximately 1.2m at low water springs.

Due to the type and configuration of the moorings available there is a maximum boat length of 30 feet for monohulls; but there are larger multihulls in residence on the river, and most monohulls are typically bilge keel type.

There is capacity available for motor boats under 24 feet in length depending upon weight.

The moorings users have access to the club raft to enable them to lift and inspect their allocated moorings when they need but regular moorings users work together in work parties to perform regular maintenance duties.

Boats are able to be stored on the moorings between April and end of October when the Club uses the resident boat hoist for a weekend of lift out and Winter storage ashore or on river bank. Maximum lifting capacity for the hoist being 5 tons.

Access to the river; and to your boat on the moorings is simply a case of launching your tender from the club paved slipway. Within minutes you can be tied up at your boat and mooring.

Tenders can be stored ashore either in the dinghy store or on the grass within the Club lawns dependent upon dinghy type and available space.

For those occasions when you want to check your hull below the waterline but don’t want to lift out, rubbing posts are available for club members to use between tides.

Some visitor moorings are available through prior arrangement.
