1. We sell all sorts

We also cover the Thames from Thorpe Bay Yacht Club in Southend on Sea, Leigh on Sea, Canvey Island and all the way up to Thurrock Yacht Club in Grays.
Many of our boats from the Essex area sell to Scandinavia and all parts of mainland Europe – We automatically translate all our boat listing details into many other languages – it works!
5. Happy customers
We pride ourselves on good customer service and show people around each boat ourselves. (Some brokers leave the vendors to do this, or let the prospective buyers have the keys and show themselves around.)
Replying to numerous email enquiries and showing people the boat by yourself can be stressful and time consuming. Some customers regret not contacting us sooner, as a quick sale means less money forked out for hard-standing or berthing fees.
“I chose Boatshed for brokerage because of the wide marketing of the boat, the number of photos taken, the large database of buyers and “no sale, no fee”. The service was excellent.”
“Steve and Catherine are great, they do their best to help their clients, even occasionally assisting with the moving and shipping of a boat.... going the extra mile.”
Our terms are no sale, no fee and we are members of the British Marine Federation and the Boat Retailer & Brokers Association.
So, if you’re serious about selling – the only way is Boatshed Essex! Contact us now for some friendly advice.
