Pontoons constructed on Lynn’s waterside have attracted a good response from leisure boaters says West Norfolk Council.
A total of 20 boaters have used the moorings on the South Quay since they were officially opened on August.
West Norfolk Council spent £160,000 in installing the pontoons over the course of the summer in a bid to help regenerate the water front.
Cabinet member for regeneration Alistair Beales was a driving force behind the project.
He said: “It is only the first year and I’m pleased with the initial response.
“The pontoons themselves are a great addition to the front but I expect in coming years when we can advertise in advance and they are well known in the yachting community, we will do better.
A council spokesman is also pleased with the response.
She said: “We have had numerous enquiries and we are confident that it will be much busier next year once sailors who have visited the town talk to their friends about sailing in from The Wash, or indeed coming up from Denver.”
The pontoons provide eight moorings and boaters can stay for a maximum of seven nights.
The minimum mooring fee is £9 per night.
The council worked with the Lynn Conservancy Board to build the pontoons.
