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.

These days there are lots of ways for an owner to try and sell a boat, from advertising it on Ebay or in a local newspaper, to handing it over exclusively to a professional broker. Nevertheless, at Boatshed we remain firmly of the view that the best option for selling a used boat continues to be Boatshed.com!
