A private mooring licence permits you to moor your vessel on navigable waters. A mooring licence isn't a lease of the seabed and there's no guarantee of tenure. The position of the site is decided at the discretion of Transport for NSW.
It's the responsibility of a mooring contractor to ensure that the mooring and its location are suitable for each vessel.
A private mooring licence is only allocated when:
- the vessel licensed to the mooring is 5.2 metres or more in length
- the vessel is currently registered in NSW in the name of the applicant
- the applicant is the sole owner or at least equal or majority shareholder of the vessel.
What you need
- your licence number (as shown on your renewal)
- your renewal number (as shown on your renewal)
- your customer reference number (as shown on your renewal)
- concession card (if recording a concession for the first time).
