A former boatyard extending to app. 4.25 acres (stms) with substantial River Waveney frontage

Reeds Lane is home to a number of marine related business and at the far end is this former boatyard offering tremendous rejuvenation potential. The village of St Olaves is situated some 8 and 9 miles from Great Yarmouth and Beccles respectively and dissected by the River Waveney providing good access to the southern part of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. The property includes two large somewhat dilapidated workshop/storage buildings along with an elevated office/administration building although this was never completed internally. Externally, the site offers several mooring basins although these are now silted up and somewhat overgrown with reeds, it is however considered there is potential for 150m or so of moorings, possibly more if incorporating finger pontoons. The site benefits from a relatively recently installed low flood wall which follows an irregular course between the river and buildings and we believe this Lot offers tremendous regeneration potential.




Please be advised that the site contains an array of boating paraphernalia, equipment and machinery and is being sold as seen. Would all interested parties register their interest with the Auctioneer in order that they may be kept up to date with any developments.


Any reasonable time during daylight hours. All persons viewing should be aware that they enter the site entirely at their own risk.


Interested parties are requested to make their own enquiries to the relevant authorities as to the availability of services.
