MAST requires the length, beam, draft and vessel type to be supplied on the Application Form to assess any new site. If this is not received, the application process cannot proceed.

MAST recommends visiting the MAST GIS Mapping System to obtain a GPS position. To do this, navigate your cursor on the map and a position will display in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. If obtaining your GPS position from your chart plotter, ensure the correct datum is used (WGS 84).

Some mooring areas are subject to closure. MAST recommends checking the list of Mooring Areas and Availability prior to submitting an application.

Please ensure that where length is specified on the application, you include any appendages which may be on the vessel such as bowsprits, dinghy davits, duckboards etc.

If your application is approved, it is recommended that a mooring contractor be used when laying a new mooring.

Once a mooring is registered, the permit number must be marked on the mooring buoy, with numbers not less than 75mm in height. This number must be clearly legible at all times above the waterline.

Penalties apply if the mooring number is not clearly visible at all times.

You can check the validity of your mooring permit online through the Mooring Permit Checker.
