The Summer CATALOGUE has just been released. The BoatBid team who work very closely with all the brokers have been flat out finalising the entries and ensuring we’ve got exactly the right mix of used boats with a range of motor and sailing boats for everyone.

We hope there will be something to suit all tastes, be it a gorgeous sailing yacht, a fun little speed boat, a RIB or a classy motor cruiser, whether it’s something that needs a little work or something that’s ready to go, we hope we’ve managed to include the boat for you.

Take a look at the CATALOGUE and if there’s something you like the look of then click on the picture to see the detailed description, inventory and up to 70 photos of her. If you want to know more then contact the qualified broker who listed the boat by clicking on the link in the blue broker’s comments box on the boat details page. They will have been onboard, met with the owner and will have plenty more information about the boat.

We’ve had great fun compiling this latest CATALOGUE because we all love boats and most of us have boats of our own but we’ve all got our favourites from the CATALOGUE which we’d really love to have even just for a few days. I went round the office to see which boat each of us would like to own.

Our admin lady just loves the Invader 20. “She’s just so cute, perfect for exploring the creeks near to where I live and she wouldn’t be very expensive to moor and maintain.” It’s just as well her partner already has a boat otherwise I don’t think this one would make it into the auction catalogue.

Our PR manager chose something totally different, he likes the Zafferano 45. “It’s classy practical fun and unique just like me.” Well the boat certainly is and I will agree our PR man is something of a one off! There’s loads more information about this one off boat which is for sale with Boatshed Dalmatia here.

Our man in communications likes the Bavaria 350, “She's just a great well appointed sailing boat and she’d be brilliant for cruising around my home port and for holidays further afield” He’s a chap who spends his working life talking so he loves nothing better than getting away from it all and this boat would certainly give him a wonderfully cosy home from home.

The computer whizz kid also chose something perfect for getting away, the Bayliner 265. “She’s not too big but she’s got everything I’d want for a weekend away with my girlfriend anchored in one of the lovely bays near our home.” I think the top speed of 35 knots also appealed.

Our design lady loves the Morgan Giles 30. “She’s just so pretty and you get so much boat for your money” We all agree this is one of the prettiest yachts we've had in any of the BoatBid auctions.

Our quality man surprised us all, we all had him down as a through and through sailing man even though he's worked on both sailing and motor boats but it turns out he has a secret admiration for the lovely Sealine S38. “She’s really impressive to look at with a well designed interior and those engines!”

The boss also surprised us. He loves the Storebro Royal Cruiser 34. “I’d spend my time lavishing her with TLC like her present owner and then load up with tons of food, drinks and friends for sunny days out” Sounds fantastic we’re all waiting for the invite.

I even gave the chap who came to fix our fridge a sneak preview of the catalogue, turns out he’s main sheet trimmer in the Beneteau Nationals this weekend so of course he chose the Beneteau First 300 Spririt

And as for me, I just can’t pick a favourite from this latest CATALOGUE there’s almost 40 used boats to choose from and they are all wonderful in their own way.
