Residential moorings

Your waterside & marina home

Residential moorings

At Aquavista, we offer residential moorings across the UK for cruisers who require long term moorings. Find your nearest long-term mooring marina that gives you all the freedom of the waterways with a permanent address!

What is a residential mooring?

A permanent mooring is just like any other home and residence, except floating and with a waterfront view! 

Wherever your mooring is located will be your registered UK postal address and your legally recognised residence. You’ll also enjoy all the normalities of home, such as waste disposal facilities, a post box and other public services. We recommend you read our guide to residential living, which goes into details including council tax and licences when using a long-term mooring.

Our Residential Moorings

Enjoy life on the water with a long term mooring as your permanent home. We have locations across the UK, including residential moorings in London, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire and more. Wake up to nature, tranquillity and freedom every morning, wherever you are!

With full residential status, you have your own secure berth and a host of excellent resident benefits - discover a whole new way of life today!

Your benefits as an Aquavista resident

There are so many benefits that come with being an Aquavista resident! Not only do you get the luxury of a private waterside location, but you can be part of a close-knit community of like-minded people. What’s more, if you fancy a change of scenery, you can discuss with our team about relocating to another available location on the marina!

An Aquavista residential mooring also comes with hundreds of pounds worth of additional benefits to make life on the water plain sailing! Here’s just some of the many benefits you enjoy as a resident:

  • Your own post box (we can accept parcels on your behalf if you are out)
  • A private storage box (in non city marinas where there is space for these)
  • Explore 34 - allows you to enjoy any other Aquavista locations nationwide for up to 34 nights free!
  • Moor Benefits Scheme - lots of lifestyle discounts and boating offers
  • 20% off insurance with the Towergate Freshwater Scheme
  • Free laundry and 12 free pump out tokens per year
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • An allocated parking space (if available)
  • A choice of council tax options - including composite council tax at most marinas, where we pay on your behalf (you must move berths twice a year to be eligible).
