Brokerage

Autumn 2017 is morphing into winter, our stock of brokerage boats is diminishing fast but we’ve a couple of new listings, an Ovni 435 and an Ovni 385 looking for new owners.

For those where we act as sole brokers (and since we feel we give the best service as sole brokers that’s most of them) we offer ‘Condition Reports’, verbal, written and accompanied by lots of photographs and/or videos.   Whilst not replacing a survey the aim is to use our expert knowledge of the boats we sell as new boats to inform potential buyers about the boats we’re selling ‘pre-loved’ to help buyers identify exactly what we’re offering and save the wasted journeys characteristic of looking at brokerage boats.

After more than 14 years working with aluminium yachts we want to give the benefit of our experience not just to new boat buyers but also to those looking at secondhand yachts. We are acknowledged to be the UK experts on aluminium yachts.

As members of the British Marine Federation and the British Marine Boat Retailers and Brokers Association, we operate within strict industry guidelines, brokering a sale between a seller and buyer and providing the ongoing support to the buyers that is not always available with a non-specialist broker.

Below are brief details of the yachts we are listing. Please contact us for the full specifications.
