Relocating to London

Hi all
I live in Hong Kong and I am considering relocating to London, but I would like to know first were could I jeep my boat. I have a Catalina 36 mkii.
Also, do you know of any website with information on tax to pay for it?
Thanks

Re: relocating to London

Some of the main marinas in London are... Poplar dock, lime house, st. Katherine Dock, South Dock. That's all I can think of for now.
If you want to live aboard, poplar and lime house are both about 10,000 for a year and south dock is cheaper but has a 2 year waiting list. It also depends on how flashy your boat is - I've encountered a lot of yacht snobbery in London. Marinas don't want grubby, 'well loved' boats spoiling the view!

Or you could keep her in Portsmouth. We have kept our family boats in Haslar marina (1hr 40 train from waterloo) or anywhere in Southampton.

Hope this helps your decision making!

Oh and a note on tax.

If you live aboard, technically you are required to pay the highest band of council tax (about 2500 a year, at a guess .... Anyone know?) but I know a few live aboards who haven't been caught yet...

HiThanks for the info
I do like the idea of keeping the boat in Porstmouth. But for now we have decided to remain in Asia, mostly due to the job market and tax system in the UK

Andres
