Mooring Contractor

on the Rivers Lynher and Tamar



On the River Tamar below the Tamar Bridge on the Cornish bank, we work on Plymouth City Council moorings, Coombe Creek Association Moorings, Wearde Quay Association moorings and Cove Head Association moorings.

We do not take on work outside of these areas.


We lay new moorings.

We maintain moorings. This consists of an annual survey and servicing.

The firm does not undertake any form of diving operations and does not directly employ divers.
All our diving work is contracted out to a commercial firm which fully complies with the Diving at Work Regulations and the Approved Code of Practice.

We advise local boat owners on how to get a mooring position.

We offer free advice via this site on how to construct your own mooring.   We give specifications. We list our minimum standards acceptable at the annual survey.

We are happy to advise insurance companies and yacht clubs on mooring configurations and the mathematics required and to act as an intermediary between parties.

If you are a customer of Diving Belle we can offer a Total Maintenance Contract (known as Option D) which is a method of paying for mooring maintenance by an ongoing monthly standing order payment.

We survey mooring areas and produce high quality accurate charts for use by mooring contractors or clubs and have measuring equipment capable of producing accurate positions down to one metre.

Diving Belle started trading in 1985.

We also repair and build computers, and sort out a variety of problems with e-mail, viruses, power failures and software.

We both are global yachtsmen with tens of thousands of sea miles.
