Boatshed have teamed up with professional drone photographers AltiVision to offer a completely new perspective on boats for sale. Launching the products at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, Neil Chapman commented “We have previously done some aerial photography of boats but helicopters and light aircraft make the costs prohibitive. By utilising drones, we hope we are able to bring this service to many people selling their boats with Boatshed”.
Boatshed is delighted to announce the following new products and services, designed to increase the marketability of boats we advertise for sale, reduce the cost of boat ownership and further strengthen the depth and reach of our network:

What boating memories do you treasure from your childhood? Trailing your feet in the water, squealing with delight, having a go at steering, and learning new skills, or discovering new beaches and going for a swim? Water skiing, fishing, picnics, and cruising with no agenda; there’s so much space, and so much peace but never a dull moment when you have a boat. If you’re a parent or grandparent you may now choose to spend your leisure time showing the children just how awe inspiring the sea can be.
It all started with a phone call from a gentleman who told me that he had just succeeded in an eBay auction for a yacht with a bid of just over £35,000. He had noticed, the morning after his euphoric night, that the same yacht was for sale with Boatshed Gibraltar at £110,000. He was beginning to think that maybe there was something amiss. I thought it interesting that when he wanted to reassure himself that he was not being defrauded he turned to the broker! My first inclination was to let him sink as he was now trying to get a brokerage service but had earlier opted for an auction process that dispensed with the broker. However I reconsidered.
Boatshed.com is recruiting :)
