At Boatshed, we don’t ‘sell boats,’ we help great people and great boats to find each other.
Boatshed, the world’s largest yacht brokerage, announces a new program — Modular Brokerage. This innovation creates a unique opportunity for those already in the marine industry and entrepreneurs to take on a share of brokerage commission on every boat we sell.
We are always told that Boatshed's website and online platform for the sale of boats is 'the best in the industry', but our technical engineers are always trying to improve it. We have added new features to our website and boat search system to make these even easier and quicker for boat buyers and boat sellers to use.
Our BoatBid online boat auction site provides the perfect platform for specialist boat auctions for a versatile range of boats from Cruising boats to Commercial, classic wooden boats to luxury motor yachts, houseboats, inland waterways, contact us if you are interested in entering your boat into our next auction.
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.
Boatshed’s unique Preferred Partners Scheme connects boat buyers with marine suppliers and service providers, internationally, nationally across the UK and locally. When buying a used boat from Boatshed, many of our buyers require equipment, accessories, sails, insurance, transportation, berthing facilities, upgrades and other essential products and services associated with boat ownership, maintenance, cruising and racing. Often, these are required immediately upon purchase of the boat, or soon thereafter, and are regarded by our customers as part and parcel of buying and equipping their ‘new’ boat.
An important part of what we do at Boatshed is help our owners’ boats stand out from the crowd and attract serious interest in a busy, often crowded marketplace. The strength of our website and IT platform, and the attention and importance our brokers place upon extensively photographing and detailing every aspect of a boat for sale, is a key part of that philosophy, but we are always devising new ways to support this effort.
It was a cold and wet winter, but Boatshed brokers have been very busy these past few months - see why ...
Boatbid.com is an online auction site for used boats. Set a reserve, enter your boat into an auction and our clever algorithms will highlight potentially interested buyers from millions of boat viewings our systems collect and then match these buyers to your boat. Sellers can be confident as sales are still handled by trained and experienced brokers, and boats are still inspected and surveyed, with all the usual contractual requirement, giving buyers peace of mind.

At Boatshed Thames we love our furry friends and we have a new addition as of December 2013. His name is George and he is now 3 months old. We brought him as Archie our Client Service Director was lonely and needed a “brother”. The two boys are getting on extremely well and now George has cleared all his injections he will be out with me as well. We are not sure of George’s position within Boatshed Thames at the moment as he has only just attended his first puppy class!
Back in October we announced a new member of Boatshed Thames our Client Services Director, Archie Ray. Archie is now 9 months and has grown considerably since he was introduced.
