There are few places more peaceful and beautiful than the moorings at Cox’s Boatyard. Positioned on the edge of Barton Broad and leading onto the River Ant, Cox’s makes an ideal location from which to start your boating adventures. Whether a day trip or something a little more serious, Cox’s is surrounded by wildlife and nature and provides good access to such idyllic locations as the moorings at Stalham, Sutton and Neatishead, as well as access to the Bure and on to southern rivers of the Broads.
Big Boats and Small Boats…
At Cox’s we can accommodate a wide range of boats, from small dinghies to 40ft-plus motor cruisers. All our moorings are well maintained with safe walkways and good access.
You’ll also have access to electricity, water, gas and toilet facilities, and even special trolleys to help you get your kit from the car to the boat! The moorings at Cox’s are sheltered by nearby trees, providing excellent protection from the elements and creating a nice sun-trap.
A Safe Home For Your Boat…
We understand the value of boats and take great care to ensure all our customers’ boats have a secure mooring and are protected, as far as possible, from the risk of damage. Cox’s moorings are right outside our workshops, so you can be sure that we will keep an eye on your boat on a daily basis.
Kingfishers, Otters and Other Wildlife
The marina at Cox’s Boatyard has an abundance of wildlife: there are several sightings of kingfishers all around the marina each week and we have a family of otters, which regularly come into the marina for food. On some occasions the otters have also been seen on the banks. The marina supports large quantities of different species of fish and, in the sky, you can sometimes see a marsh harrier flying around the reed beds or, higher up, large cranes either in pairs or in fours.
