Moorings in Melbourne

Hi All,

We are heading off on an adventure sailing the Med for 5 months at the end of this month. 2 adults and 2 kids (12 and 14)

I like to call it the 2011 Mid Life Crisis Tour. lol

After the adventure the Lagoon 400 will be shipped back to Melbourne which should be around December 2011

I am looking at mooring options……I have sent off for info from sailing clubs but wondered if by word of mouth anyone knew of someone who had a double mooring sitting unused???? (Its a small world - you never know)

Any suggestions you have will be appreciated.

Re: Moorings in Melbourne

Have a quick search on here, there was a good thread on this a few months back. It listed most of the yacht clubs and the public moorings, who runs them etc. There are definitely moorings out there if you can afford them, like $120,000 for one at Docklands or broken down into easy monthly payments of $1,300

There are definitely new deep water moorings available on Westernport if you don't mind a 9 hour trip around to Docklands once in a while

If you're looking at hauling for winter, there's a place near Tooradin "Seahaven" where you can have it hauled on and kept out for around $30 a week plus hauling cost. It's a low budget place and quite convenient. All he does is work on cats.

Good luck.

I have a mooring in Geelong which is available now for the next 2 years or so.its at the yacht lub in an area where the water is sheltered and flat 99% of the year.
It is set up for a cat as i have had my lagoon 440 on it for the last 2 years.
Cost is $1500.00 per year and you can keep the tender at the yacht club with your club membership.

Regards peter
