The Southampton International boat show is just around the corner and as ever will be there, we’ll be at stand C53 and we’d like to extend a very warm invitation to anyone coming to the show to come over and see us. Don’t forget our legendary fizz@five everyday at the show when all are welcome to come for a glass of fizz and a boaty chat.

We know that for many of our customers this is the show to come to and it is one of our favourite shows too. Many of you, though you enjoy looking at the shiny new boats for sale have your own used boats to sell or are really in the market for a used boat and we are always happy to chat with you about the type of boat you are looking for, where you intend to keep it and what your budget is so we can help you find something suitable. After all we are all boat enthusiasts, most of us have or have had our own boat and we have a really good idea of what owning a boat is all about.

During the first part of the show, from September 12th to September 16th we will be running our boat auction which is supported by We have both power and sailing boats for sale in the auction catalogue and because it’s Boatshed you have the full backing of our yacht brokerage service including the option to have a professional survey after the bidding has ended. is an online boat auction so there is no need for you to be at the show to take part and for this auction we have some great boats whose owners are keen to move them on before the winter. We have a couple of boats which do require a little bit of attention so now would be a great time to pick them up, spend some time over the winter getting them just how you want them and be ready for the start of next year’s boating season but we’ve also got boats which are ready to go and you could snap one of these up and get some sailing in virtually straight away.
