What could be more fun than buying your first boat? Or your next boat? Or your second boat?!

Answer: When that boat is reduced in price! Nothing beats that feeling of knowing that you’ve got a real bargain, and the budget to spare to spend on maintenance, or boat improvements. We always have a real variety of price range and styles at Boatshed and this spotlight on some of our reduced boats reflects that.

Budget Business

Dutch 23 Day Boat - Ideal as a passenger boat

This is a lovely little day boat (pictured) which would be great for family days out, or even used as a small trip boat business. The steel hull and cabin are in good condition. The accommodation incudes bench seats with cushions and a compartment for a cassette toilet.

She’s been reduced to £7,950 - so just imagine, this could be a low cost business investment for you!

Low Cost Lifestyle

Narrowboat 50ft Cruiser Stern

This 3 berth boat would make a great live-aboard at a great price, and has a possible mooring in Hertfordshire. She is of steel construction with full-displacement underwater profile and bitumen finish. The boat was surveyed in 2013 then had a complete new sole plate and all remedial work completed and reassessed by surveyor. She was also blacked and given new anodes in June 2014.

To be honest, this narrowboat is now a superb liveaboard boat, comfortable and well fitted with good paintwork and a new stove. The asking price is reduced to just £27,500.

Labour of Love

Narrowboat 30ft Cruiser Stern Project Completion

This boat is an almost completed project, and could be ready for your finishing touches. She’s in need of a little TLC, and some elbow grease to restore her glory could go a long way towards making the boat warm and homely again.

This is such a lovely little cruiser just waiting for a new owner and reduced to £13,500.

You can see from this list that a boat is so much more than just a vessel for travel. To somebody out there these boats could represent a new business, a new home or a satisfying DIY mission.
