St Katharine Docks
Probably London's most famous and recognisable marina, St Kat's is in a fantastic location right next to Tower Bridge and has plenty of restaurants and bars around the basins. The marina usually has available berths so there is no premium attached to boats for sale here. Beware of estate agents advertising otherwise. Mooring fees are high comparably but the facilities are top notch. It makes a great place to stay on board a few nights a week as a pied-a-terre as the moorings are not residential.
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.
Here in Cyprus we asked George Christofides ACA from Citius Trust Ltd if he could explain why it makes sense to register a yacht in Cyprus and he kindly provided us with the following.
Because the canals and waterways are generally very slow flowing they freeze easily at this time of year. For anyone living aboard this means that the water in the domestic water tank may freeze, and even the pipes at the local supply tap may freeze. Bearing that in mind it’s best to keep an eye on the weather forecast at this time of year and get some essential boat chores done in advance of the big freeze.
