In the UK, a referendum has resulted in a vote to leave the European Union.
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 Scheme is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
The next auction commences on Friday 15th April at 9am and runs until Tuesday 19th April at 7pm. There are 55 boats for sale in sail, power, river and inland boats.
The next auction takes place between 15th to 19th April 2016, here's a preview of some of the boats entered into the auction:
We want our customers to feel valued, informed and, well…… loved. Instead of us keeping all the useful information about boat sales to ourselves, we have developed some tools to allow our customers to keep themselves informed whilst selling a boat and when looking for a new boat.
BoatBid enables the boat buyer to bid with the confidence that any boat can be surveyed and sea trialed before you make the decision to purchase. The transaction is handled by one of Boatshed's brokers.
At the recent 2016 Boatshed Broker Conference held over 2 days, with Boatshed brokers attending from all over the world, a wide variety of workshops and hot topics were discussed. The Boatshed Awards were held on the evening of the first day and Jo Dixie-Goodwin from PSP World-wide Logistics was invited to present the awards.
This week saw the Boatshed 2016 2 day Conference held in Gosport at Hardy’s at Haslar Marina. There was representation from approximately 40 Boatshed locations, including the UK and Europe, along with a number of members of the Boatshed HQ team.
At Boatshed we are always thinking of ways to help people sell their boats more efficiently and providing a better service to both seller and purchaser.
