Notice for Intending Boat Buyers, Marina Berth or Hardstand Occupiers
BEFORE you buy a boat, acquire a berth &/or hardstand storage please ensure that you obtain confirmation from RPYC. We also ask that if you want to bring your vessel in from outside/overseas you are to see Marina Administration to register and secure a berth and/or hardstand space before you bring in your Boat, Kayak, Canoe, Ski, Hobie or Dinghy.
If you intend to liveaboard, ensure that the boat will be allowed to be used as liveaboard. Do not assume that because it has been lived on before that this approval will continue.
As a new owner you must apply to the club to obtain the berth – it is not automatic, though the transfer will not unreasonably be withheld.
The process for the seller and buyer, of boats, is as follows:
Per Lease - In the event the Occupant sells the Vessel he shall notify the Club of the sale within seven (7) days, and the Occupant’s entitlement to use the Berth / Hardstand Station shall terminate forthwith and the Club shall be entitled to re allocate the Berth / Hardstand Station”.
If the intending owner wishes to retain the berth then both the intending owner and current owner /occupant will need to complete the berth transfer procedures. See the Marina Administration to get a berth transfer application form to complete and return to the office for Executive Committee’s inspection and approval.
Should the new intending owner wish to Liveaboard, it will also need to be viewed and approved by the Executive Committee, as an approved Liveaboard vessel. They will inspect the vessel using the liveaboard guidelines. See the Marina Administration office to get a copy of the liveaboard registration form and guidelines for both your information.
After approval of the Berth Transfer & Liveaboard Status you will be required to complete the Marina Berth Occupancy Agreement & agree to comply with the Marina By Laws.
All Boats in the marina and hardstand area must always have valid insurance cover (copies to be sent annually to Marina Administration) and will be required to demonstrate manouverability.
