Boat mooring

I am after a mooring for a 9m boat. Can anyone help or advise on a marina that might have vacancies near Montreux or south side of lake Geneva.

Re: Boat mooring

I hear they are all full for several years and cost more than a house . This is hearsay though.

Re: Boat mooring

Do you think it is any easier on the French side of the lake ?? Or do they intentionally block Swiss residents from jumping over the border.

I will be driving around each of the marinas over the next 3 months to see what the situations is and let you know what i find.

I wonder if the 5-10 year waiting list rumors you hear about are just a ploy to stop you bothering putting your name down at all.

Re: Boat mooring

A friend of mine had been on the waiting list for a boat slip in his town the Zürichsee for 9 years when his number finally came up.

Unfortunately he was on holiday when the letter bearing the good news was delivered. By the time the letter reached him, he had missed the response deadline - and was bounced back down to the bottom of the waiting list.

He is now in his 15th year of waiting...

Hope you have better luck.

Re: Boat mooring

A friend of mine has been on the list for nine years for a spot near Küsnacht and it'll probably be another five until it's his turn - at least... One thing that I find amusing with the whole concept is that they really do stick to the waiting list, i.e., you can't just offer loads of money to be bumped up. This frustrates some financially lucky people from abroad, used to being able to buy anything they want - here, things are different.

Re: Boat mooring

Hi All,

I was thinking to buy a boat next year. The question I have is if you don't have a mooring, and just keep the boat in the garage, when you go a put it into any lake do you have to pay anything for using slopes (not sure what they are called) to get the boat into the water? Also, could I just use my boat in any lake?

thanks!

Re: Boat mooring

you'll need to get your swiss lake sailing permit before you'll allowed to sail on the lake even with your own boat. if you buy a boat from a dealer with a ramp you may be allowed to use the ramp for free. there are public ramps on some lakes, your best bet is to contact your local shipyeard to find out.

Closest would be around Genua, there are quite a few along the coast heading to Imperia, thing is they cost an arm and a leg for a wet berth, up to 6000€ for a 30ft bucket p.a., alternative would be around Croatia, not as expenisive for not much value as Italy and due to their more transitary nature you can still get a berth, also the maestral that blows hard in the north west med can bring great sailing wind in the adriatic.
Thankfully I have my bucket on a trailer and can drag the thing where I want in spring, sail in the summer holidays and drag her back in winter.

Get something with under 15 m2 and 11m2 (Bodensee) sail then you can go saililng without a permit.

Re: Boat mooring

ref the sailing permits.

Would the sailing permit and a power boat permit be different exams - or do the swiss bundle everything into a general boating competency certificate, a bit like the yachtmaster in the UK ?
