1) Kerrera Sound, Oban Argyll - swinging mooring suitable for vessel up to 40'. Available immediately until 1st April 2012. Car parking adjacent and easy access/distance from mainland shore. Very sheltered location. £150 p/m.

2) Tobermory Harbour, Isle of Mull, Argyll - Swinging mooring suitable for vessel up to 50'. Available immediately until 1st October 2011. £200 p/m.

Just sold my boat and the replacement wont be on the moorings until next year so they are free till then. Not many opportunities to obtain two first class spots like these. Rental costs are substantially lower than any of the local marinas and i'm happy to split them or rent both to the same person.

Thanks
Iain

To rent a swinging mooring in Tob for a month capable of holding a 15 ton boat would cost around £400 p/m, Obans average is between £300 and £400 p/m depending how remote from Oban it is. Profit motive Phil? absolutely and whoever wants to rent it will be saving money so we'll both be happy. It's called good business and until my boat is ready to go back on them then i'd rather see them used.

You are quite correct about how much THA (which is a ground breaking Association and has transformed Tob in recent years) charge their members. Having been one for the last 10 years I am also aware that visitors to the area who want to spend some weeks or months cruising will not have the luxury of membership therefore wont benefit from that discounted rate, therefore comparing the two is rather misleading.

Apologies, Iain; as a THA member with a mooring, I had no idea the going commercial rates for moorings in the area were so high!
Plus, the mooring leaseholder is responsible for the riser, so there are costs over and above the THA charges- cost me £420 two years ago, and I suspect I will have a similar or larger bill this year as I am moving to another, larger, mooring.
So, apologies again, and I hope you find someone to take on the mooring.

No offence taken Phil, as you say there are more than just the rental costs involved and as I quite rightly have to pay whether I use it or not, i'd rather have someone rent it, help me out and also contribute to the local economy. Good luck with your new mooring.
