At Boatshed we are always thinking of ways to help people sell their boats more efficiently and providing a better service to both seller and purchaser.
From the start, Boatshed has always been about promoting and harnessing those family values that most boaters share; spending time together afloat with family and friends; owning a beloved boat that becomes part of the family; weekends spent at anchorages in hidden bays and coves; introducing children to the joys of boating and adventures at sea; the camaraderie that comes with Club and team racing events; endlessly fiddling with engines, warps, sheets and halyard in all types of weather and conditions, and the occasional, perfect, sunset reach or motor home after a fabulous boating trip!
If you fancy a dip in the sea at Christmas, you are either brave/daft or raising money for charity – after all who would want to leave the comfort of their over warm homes to jump into icy waters if it wasn’t for charity!?
What is it - It is a cooker based on the hay box principle. Once the ingredients have been brought to the boil on your stove, you place the cooking pans into the outer casing, shut the lid and it carries on cooking - WITH NO POWER SOURCE, for hours, until you are ready for your meal.

With all the talk of tinsel and turkey about to begin, we must not forget that enjoying time on the water happens whatever the weather.
The Boatshed brokers are busy bees, but sometimes they ponder what has happened to aboat after it has changed owners, especially when sold to someone who has a specific objective in mind as to why they need a certain vessel.
There is no escaping the fact that owning a boat can be an expensive business, but there are a variety of ways to economise. Here are some tips for you to consider.Berthing is probably the biggest single item of recurrent expenditure. Firstly get a yacht that is just under the 12, 15 or 18m berthing range. There is no point in getting a boat that is just over 12m and find yourself paying for a 15m berth. Marinas tend to give generous discounts for advance payment. With good planning you can take advantage of these discounts.
