Beccles Quay & Yacht Station


Beccles Quay offers more than an opportunity to moor your boat, as it also offers a great venue for large and small events, having hosted Fun Fairs and Music Festivals in previous years. So if you are looking for a great outdoor venue for an event, then your search may now be over. Easy access to the river and nearby marsh trails makes this the ideal place for a cross country running or an organised wild swimming event.

ADVANCE NOTICE – THE QUAY TOILETS WILL BE CLOSED FOR DEEP CLEANING ALL DAY ON TUESDAY 23rd OCTOBER 2018. The key for the disabled toilet will be available from the Harbour Master’s office.

Beccles Yacht Station

Located on the quiet reaches of the River Waveney, Beccles Yacht Station offers not only a tranquil setting to enjoy your boating holiday, but is only a short step away from the shops, cafes and pubs of Beccles. If you wish to explore the wider area, then a regular bus service into Norwich is only a minute’s walk away, or head into town for train and bus links to local towns such as Southwold, Lowestoft or Ipswich.

Within the old market town of Beccles, with its regular Friday Market, can be found a wonderful selection of cafes and restaurants to suit all palettes. For those seeking more, then Beccles Public Hall offers a wide range of events, or you could head to our very own outdoor heated swimming pool, Beccles Lido. The Lido is also the base for the Big Dog Ferry who run trips between Beccles and the secluded Locks Inn at Geldeston.

The Yacht Station has plenty of space for visiting craft and provides toilets, showers and clothes washing facilities. Electric charging points are also available.

We already welcome several boating clubs to the yacht station, but always welcome more, so if you feel Beccles sounds like a place you need to visit, then please get in touch.

The moorings fees per 24 hours for visiting craft are:

Stern On: £9-50 or £13-00 with electric

Side On – up to 45 feet: £14-00 or £17-50 with electric

Short Stay (4 Hours Maximum): £5-50

Water Top Up: £2-00

Shower: £2-00

For those seeking a more permanent home, there are permanent moorings available, with Beccles Town Council currently looking to expand the number available, so please contact either the Harbour Master or Beccles Town Council to find out more. The annual mooring fee for permanent moorings is £38-60 per foot.
