Deep Water Swinging Moorings
We believe we have the best moorings in Poole Harbour, set either side of the Wareham Channel, in a sheltered area of deepwater between the Arne Peninsula and Lake in Hamworthy. An area of outstanding natural beauty.
Our moorings are laid in lines, using heavy ground chain and high quality riser chain. A numbered mooring buoy is attached to the top of the riser chain, with a yellow hand buoy attached by rope to mooring buoy. To pick up our moorings – simply use your boat hook to grab the yellow hand buoy, then attach your own lines / strop to the top of the mooring buoy. We lift inspect and service every mooring every year to ensure they are in top condition. We have 100 swinging moorings of varying size & draft. We have been operating these moorings since 1938. We grade them into “blocks” of moorings to help identify them.
A block is nearest the shoreline and close to the slipway at Lake Road.They are Hamworthy side of the Wareham Channel between markers buoys WH 3 to WH 4. These moorings are the easiest to reach if under oar power & are the most sheltered.
The main body of deepwater moorings are located here. They are Arne side of the Channel, & are most suited to deep keel boats.
Is located mid way between A & B Block. These moorings were laid with larger vessels in mind, & are ideal for deep keel boats of 12m or more.
These moorings are the furthest away from our Marina & the shoreline. They benefit from the quietest location & can offer a very good value option for the cost conscious boater.
