Houseboats are permitted within Whitby Harbour and are treated
the same as any other private craft. Permission should be
sought from the Borough Harbour Master in writing before bringing a
houseboat into any harbour area.
Vessels which are lived upon and treated as a houseboat must apply
for a berth in the normal manner and follow all standard
procedures. Size and type of vessel are restricted by normal
berthing arrangements within the Harbour area. Houseboats are
often of similar type and style to a river narrow boat and this
type of vessel cannot be accommodated in our port areas.
