How to apply for a commercial berth

A waiting list applies for applications for commercial berths. The waiting list is open to people who permanently reside within 11 miles for commercial fishermen of St. Thomas Church, Lymington and who own or are the majority shareholder of the boat to be moored.

Berths are allocated from the waiting list with seniority being based on a combination of time served on the waiting list and boat compatibility with the available mooring.
