With its international reach, cutting-edge technology and improved processes, Boatshed consistently sells boats faster and at greater value. Boat and yacht sellers often choose a broker based largely on the rate of commission. But a low commission rate can hide poor performance.
As one of the largest international yacht brokers in the world, Boatshed is well known for selling just about any and all types of boats: sail or motor; compact or super-sized; cheap or expensive; inland or ocean going, since 2001 we have dealt with everything that floats.
Getting regular updates from your yacht broker about sales activity on your boat is vital. As well as regular broker contact Boatshed offer all boat owners a secure area where they can obtain live information on the activity, viewings and sales data of their boat for sale.

Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Program is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.

When life hands you lemons you’re supposed to make lemonade right? Divorce, separation, ill health, or some other unexpected change of circumstances may force you to sell your boat. I lived aboard for thirteen years and wrote a blog called The Real Life of a Narrowboat Wife. When my marriage broke up we decided to sell our boat. I thought ‘The Narrowboat Ex Wife Who Lives in a Cottage in Devon But Still Writes Several Narrowboating Blogs’ was just too long for a new blog title, and I had no idea what I was going to do with my life next. So if you’re in the same boat (ha ha!) here are some tips on how to manage the change.
