Buying a Boat

Whether New or Pre Owned …. We can help !!

For most people buying a boat is often the single largest purchase outside of a buying a house that they are likely to make. Whilst we are all familiar with buying houses, the process of buying a boat can be daunting and like no other.

Buying a Boat
We have many years of experience within the marine industry across whole range of sectors including:-

  • Manufacturing and yacht construction
  • New and second hand yacht sales
  • Operations
  • Customer Care and Aftersales
  • Charter

There is a technical aspect that can be alien to even but the most experienced and the whole process is often highly charged with emotion which can easily cloud ones judgement.

Buying a boat also soaks up a massive amount of time so sometimes it helps just to have someone on hand you can trust to deal with the detail and if nothing else we hope to help save you money by buying things at the best price as well as not buying things you won’t need.
