    How did Mike pay his mooring fees?

    I’m typical of so many boat owners. My wife doesn’t quite share my enthusiasm and my teenagers are developing their own lives. The dream of spending every weekend on the boat hasn’t come true.

    I first listed my boat with Beds on Board in mid-winter this year. The signup process was simple and their excellent team helped me to set the ideal price and finalise my advert.

    Beds on Board owners - regulations

    What about regulations?

    You are responsible for complying with any local regulations so do look into these. In the UK, as an example, boats that are moored in coastal marinas do not need MCA coding. We recommend you:

    1. Talk to your insurance company
    2. Talk to your marina or other berthing authority
    3. Make sure your boat is safe and comfortable

    Does Beds on Board work with marinas?

    Yes. We are members of British Marine and The Yacht Harbour Association and we have a partnership with MDL Marinas. We recommend you talk to your marina, but before that you should:

    1. Read our Accommodation Guidelines
    2. Read our Guest Conduct Policy
    3. List your boat
    Read our guidelines
