The Crown Estate operates a range of mid-strem moorings on the River Hamble. These include piled mooring, deep water mooring sites (buoyed moorings) and drying mooring sites (buoyed moorings). Details of the charges for the various categories of mid-stream mooring operated by The Crown Estate can be found on the Crown Estate website.
Please note that the Harbour Dues for these moorings types are 10% higher than the standard rate to reflect the higher administration costs involved.
There is currently a waiting list for moorings.
Anyone over the age of 16 can apply for a mooring. It is not necessary for the applicant to own a boat when applying for the waiting list but in the case of partnerships the applicant must demonstrate that they have a majority shareholding in the vessel.
New applicants can apply online. The annual fee is £30.
Applicants will be sent a payment reminder each September to re-confirm their intention to remain on the waiting list.
Exisiting (pre 1 January 2008) applicants who voluntarily resign from the waiting list will be entitled to a £20.
Those joining (or re-joining) after 1 January 2008 will not be eligible for a refund if they resign voluntarily.
The River Hamble Harbour Authority administers the mid stream moorings on the River Hamble on behalf of the Crown Estate.
