This is a short introduction to Fiskarfjärden Boat Club, its rules and regulations, which you can find on the Club home page https://fbk-bat.se/. Make sure you fully understand and follow all the rules. If necessary ask a Swedish speaking person for help to make sure you don’t miss anything.
The Club has approximately 300 members and 200 moorings.
The Club does not have any employees and relies entirely on voluntary work by its own Club members. It is important and compulsory that members help maintain the marina, the Club house and in serving as board members.
The annual Club meeting is held in February/March. An invitation to the meeting is sent by e-mail and is posted on the Club home page. During the annual meeting the Club board is elected and important boat club issues are discussed. The elected board is responsible for running the Club until the next annual meeting.
In the Club house there is a guard room, kitchen, toilet, meeting room and storage compartments. Individual private items related to boat life can be stored in these compartments but they must be clearly marked with the member’s name and telephone number. In the garden there is furniture and barbecuing facilities.
All garbage must be taken home.
Every April there are two organised work days, in order to launch the mooring booms, clean the area from leaves and garbage. Participation during one of these two days is compulsory.
In October two other work days are organised in order to pick up the mooring booms and prepare the club house for winter. Participation during one of these two days is compulsory.
The Club organises its own night-watch consisting of two persons per night. Every Club member must participate in two night-watch duties per season. Reservations for night-watch duties can be made by each member at https://fbk.batdata.se.
If you don’t participate in one work day in the spring and one in the fall or don’t show up for night-watch duty you will be charged an extra fee and risk being expelled from the Club.
Your key tag provides you with access to the docks and the clubhouse and the key allows access to the storage compartments, the boom at the parking lot and the gates to the docks from the outside. The key and tag are personal loans and may only be lent to family members.
Docks and moorings
Moorings are rented per season from the 16th April to the 15th October and only to assigned places. During the rest of the year the marina has to be emptied from boats unless permission is given by the Club board.
Potable water can be collected at the E and K/L docks. Electrical outlets can be found on the lampposts. Any electrical cables can only be connected for a maximum of 48 hours. When leaving the cable connected, it must be marked with a label which can be found in the guard room.
It is very important that your boat is moored correctly, see pictures at fbk-bat.se.
Your boat must be insured against damages to other boats and docks.
Private possessions on docks or outside on Club ground are not allowed.
It is forbidden to fish from the docks or from boats in the harbor or barbecuing on the docks.
If you go swimming in the harbor, note that it is difficult to see a person swimming from a boat.
Dirty maintenance work on boats in the marina is not allowed.
Maximum speed in the harbour area is 3 kn but make sure that you don’t create a swell.
If you sell your boat you cannot let your mooring place to the new owner, without permission from the harbor captain.

Winter storage at Sätra Boat Yard
Sätra Boat Yard is an independent organisation, separate from Fiskarfjärden Boat Club.
This is a short introduction to Sätra Boat Yard, its rules and regulations, which you can find at yard’s official home page https://satravarv.se. Make sure you understand and follow all the rules. If necessary ask a Swedish speaking person for help to make sure you don’t miss anything.
Members in Fiskarfjärden Boat Club are guaranteed winter storage, as long as the invoice for winter storage is paid on time. Similar to Fiskarfjärden Boat Club, the Yard relies heavily on voluntary, compulsory work by its boat owners.
The Yard’s home page consists of two parts:
- On www.satravarv.se, which is open for anybody, displays information about Yard rules, environment issues, membership, storage prices, contact details to the Yard etc.
- svi.batdata.se is the member register which is open only for Yard members. On this page you can update your contact details, book your pick-up and launching of your boat, night-watch dates, etc. To receive a pin code you can write your e-mail address or cell phone number and push the link ”Jag har glömt mitt lösenord, skicka nytt”. A new pin code will then be sent either to your e-mail address or to your cell phone as a text message.
It is important that you update your contact details as soon as possible after changing them, since we use these details to inform you about everything happening in the Yard.
As a new member in the Yard you must participate in an information meeting before first pick-up of your boat.
You must also participate in night-watch duty at the Yard at least one night per season and you have to help at the launching and pick-up of your boat and with the boat owner’s boats in the same time slot as yours. Furthermore, there is something called compulsory Yard work, 3-5 hours every year.
While on land, the boat has to be supported so it doesn’t fall over. Only support equipment which is approved by the Yard is allowed.
The boatyard is to be emptied from boats from 1st June to the 15th September. We do not allow maintenance work over summer.
For safety reasons, the yard will not handle any boats if the boat owner cannot communicate with the personnel of the Yard in either Swedish or English.
