The moorings in the Swale off Queenborough are now run by the Queenborough Harbour Trust who collect the mooring fees and maintain them. The charge for a visiting boat on the moorings and concrete barge will be £14.00 per night at the weekends and £20.00 per night on the pontoon. You can pay these dues at the Harbour Office (tel no 01795 662051) at the end of the landing pontoon. There are now two Harbour Operators here who cover everything including the trot boat. They are stationed at the Harbour Office (when not in the taxi) and at other times is available on mobile 07456459754 or on VHF Channel 08. They have a website and there you can see what they are trying to achieve as well as good chartlets of the layout of the moorings. ... read more
