>>> DBA – The Barge Association

The Association for everyone owning or interested in barges

Welcome to DBA The Barge Association and our new website. 

  • Our aims are to bring together people interested in barges and barging.
  • To establish and maintain contact with other relevant societies and clubs, navigation authorities and trade associations.
  • To represent the interests of barge owners in areas such as moorings rights, navigation permits and charges, provision and maintenance of barge navigations and navigation safety regulations.
  • To seek benefits for members in the form of discounts on barge-related goods and services.

DBA the Barge Association is a ‘not-for-profit’ limited company run by volunteers and open to everybody, with or without a boat or barge, who is or would like to be living in, cruising in, converting, or just relaxing aboard.
