We are the Nationwide Boat Sales Specialist….

We have been operating for decades and we sell in excess of 350 boats per annum. We are also members of the British Marine and we have to follow a strict code of practice. We have also set up a clients trust account which your monies will be paid into for your boat. This is a ring fenced protected account. This protects the buyers and the sellers monies until the transaction is complete.

We operate our brokerage service from marinas and their home moorings all over the country. This means that we have Nationwide potential buyers for your boat.

We can sell your boat from its current location or you can bring it to one of the marinas that we operate from to sell.

Great Haywood Boat Sales are here to take the hassle and worry out of selling your vessel. Our fully trained staff work hard to sell your narrow boat, seven days a week.

All sales boats that are moored at one of our locations have a dedicated sales area where all our viewings are accompanied.

There is no guide regards how to value a boat correctly. This comes from decades of experience and selling 1000s of boats. You need to sell with a broker that is not going to under value your boat or to over value it and then not able to sell it. This could cost you tens of thousands of pounds if your vessel is undervalued and months of frustration if its not sold because the valuation is not correct. We will not overvalue your vessel to get you on our books and to make us look busy. Every boat is bespoke and therefor the value and price differs. Sell via our excellent brokerage because we have decades of experience.

  • Why do I have to wait up to 7 days to receive my funds after the vessel has been handed over?

    We have a daily limit that can be transferred out of our clients trust account. This is set up by the bank for security reasons. This is standard practice for all bank accounts.

    For example: if our daily limit was £100,000.00 and we handed over 2 boats on the same day for £100,00.00 each, then the 2nd boat would not receive the funds until the second working day.

    Sometimes banks also put a hold on large transfers that have been paid into your bank account. Especially, if this is unusual activity regards your bank account. This again is for security reasons. The bank would contact you to discuss the funds before they give security clearance to release the funds. This could also mean a delay in the funds showing in your account. This is why we guarantee that you will receive the funds from our clients trust account within 7 working days.

    All of the above are for security reasons and are there to protect your monies.

    We are sometimes asked when and which day will the funds be in your account? We are not able to confirm a date or day because of the above explanation and because we have no control over your or our bank.

    At Great Haywood Boat Sales we pride ourselves on offering an excellent range of services, after sales care and attention and value for money. We have lists of genuine buyers waiting to buy your boat.

    You now have an option to use one of the most successful brokers in the Country to sell your boat from a number of locations. We can also buy your boat.
