Boats Sourcing

Boat sourcing has become one of our key services and is now charged at a flat fee rate.

What we do

We find the best value boat(s) based on your criteria or specific model/specification. If you don’t know the exact boat you are looking for then we will send you a short questionnaire to find out more of your requirements.

Check that the paperwork is all correct i.e. no liens on the boat, service records, receipts for work done to the boat etc.

Negotiate the best possible price and where applicable give you a few options

Arrange through our network a survey if required (depends on value and type of boat as we deal with boats ranging from 2k -250k)

Organise the transfer of ownership documentation including any conditions of sale i.e. extra’s

Find the best value delivery options for you anywhere in the EU.

Why we do it

  • Offering this service enables our clients to get what they are looking for at the best possible price without spending ages looking and worrying if they have missed anything
  • It is far easier for us a broker dealing with other brokers/sellers as we do this all the time
  • We are formally trained in negotiation and have over 50 years’ experience
  • We have a network of contacts throughout the UK, Ireland and some parts of Europe who can look at boats for us and they often know of boats that are not advertised on the usual websites
  • When dealing/calling with the seller/broker of the boat, as a broker the call is often more direct as they know we will do the checks and uncover any issues
  • We stop people being ripped off by unethical sellers or spending time and money viewing misleading adverts

Please note that if you have found the boat you are looking for and would like help to get the best price or to confirm any of the vital details i.e. any liens, boat condition etc. we can also do this for you

Note: If the boat does not have a trailer or is not suitable for a trailer we can arrange boat transportation anywhere in the EU.
