What makes us different
Ashton Marine Services employs time served marketing and sales people that are also experience boaters – we believe that to sell a boat you need:
Proven marketing skills i.e know how to promote different boats to the different types of buyers

To be able to use up to date technology to promote your boat along with traditional methods
Have an extensive network of contacts throughout the UK and Ireland
to know how to promote the boat to social media including facebook user groups
What we need from you
The most important piece of information we need from our clients using our services is as much information as you can about the boat i.e not just the boat make and model but also where it was used, how often, what is also included in the sale, and any known problems. We can then help you sort out the pictures and where possible a short walk a round video of the boat, as these can prove valuable for perspective buyers.
Please note that we are happy to help you sell any boat, as long as the boat is, to the best of your knowledge safe or declared as a project. Download Boat Brokerage Form
