Currency news - British pound, all time high against the Euro

Friday, 13 March 2015

With the British pound is on a seven year high against the Euro which could remain for the next few months and is excellent news for boat buyers. As the Euro continues to slide British pound, if you are thinking of buying a boat in the Euro zone can take advantage of this shift, with Portugal and Spain offering some of the lowest travel and accommodation costs in the EU, making it very attractive to look for boats on these shores. With Boatshed offices covering France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Croatia and Gibraltar its worth comparing the currency rates to get the best deal for your money and to get your perfect boat.
