Holiday slip/mooring in Devon

Hi

Looking to rent a cottage in Devon for the first week of July and thought I could take the (6m) RIB to do some exploring. Any recommendations for where I could launch / moor? Iíve tried a few yacht clubs but they donít seem to want to commit to a booking.

Cheers

Paul

I know it's not Devon but Cornwall. You could try Mylor Marina. They have 6 or 7 rental cottages and visitor pontoon moorings. I was there for 2 weeks last year and had a brilliant time.

Pasco's Boat yard? Just round the corner from St Mawes.
Friend who lives locally keeps a Norfolk Gypsy on one of their swinging moorings.

RIBase
Plenty of options.

Last time I went to Mylor found a great Air bnb 2 miles from the marina, and left the boat on the visitors pontoon for the week.

Devon wise there's a few Plymouth options. Launch Mountbatten and stay at an Air BNB locally or just over the water., using the water taxi to jump accross if needed. There are a number of marinas to stay at. There's a list on the Queens Anniversary pasty run page from last year.

Dartmouth or torquay work really well too. Couple of good holiday parks around if you're thinking pool, gym etc instead of just room.

If wanting S. Devon, the may be options around Brixham (moor at Marina) or Dartmouth - Dart Marina or Noss.

Plenty of visitor moorings in Exmouth and a decent ramp, you might even get into the Marina if youíre lucky. If not, water taxi will be in full swing then. Lots of accom options. Itís a great place to explore from in a rib, Weymouth to Salcombe are day trips in the right conditions. Lyme Regis, Torbay and Dartmouth are all in very easy reach. You could spend a day just exploring the Exe and having lunch at the excellent floating restaurant. I am biased though, itís home for me.

Is there plenty close by to explore with a SIB? What's parking like near the slip?

Definitely, you could go up river to Topsham, visit the River Exe Cafe (floating restaurant), short trip to Sandy Bay (good beach) or to Teignmouth. There is plenty of parking near slip, it does fill up in summer though.
