If you believe your boat has been stolen, please contact the Police on their non emergency number (101) and give them a description of the boat and details on when you believe the boat was taken and obtain a crime reference number, then pass this information to Dart Harbour.

Dart Harbour will keep a record of this and inform you if the boat is found elsewhere on the river.
