Boatshed’s online sales platform has pioneered the clear and transparent marketing and sale of used boats online and is the very best in the industry. A tremendous advantage of marketing a boat for sale with Boatshed is that an owner reaches well beyond the locality of the boat.

Each office is a separate, legal entity with its own business and name, operating within its locality.

As licensees of the Boatshed system all offices have standard working practices, standard procedures and use standard agreements and contracts, so that each office maintains the highest levels of customer service and professionalism - concepts at the heart of Boatshed since it was formed by Neil and Mandy Chapman in 1999.
