Not only do they attract the biggest buyer audiences, their Google presence is second to none, helping ensure your boat listing comes high up the rankings Listing on the ValueBOATS site – which attracts buyers who specifically want to buy boats under £20,000 Effective use of social media such as Twitter, Facebook and blogs in order to reach the widest possible audience A For Sale sign to attach to your boat to attract ‘passing trade’ Peace of mind – why you should use a broker Our fee includes the full conveyancing package. We produce formal Contracts of Sale, official receipts for deposit and final payments, an official MCA Bill of Sale and a further 10 essential documents contained in your Boat Sales and Conveyancing Packs – all to help ensure a smooth, easy and safe transaction for all parties Our ‘due diligence’ process, including boat title and personal identity checks, helps reassure buyers of the legitimacy of their purchase Our regulated ‘Client Account’ banking facility can hold the 10% deposit on secure neutral territory, as well as the balance of monies due before completion We are members of, and are regulated by, the British Marine Federation (BMF) and Boat Retailers and Brokers Association (BRBA) and we abide by their professional codes of conduct Hands-on support throughout the sales process We handle all sales enquiries and leads We give you frequent updates (at least once every 4 weeks) on levels of interest in your boat - we won’t leave you in the dark or keep you guessing We arrange viewings with potential purchasers We aim to filter out the time wasters and ‘fender kickers’ Our Freephone 0800 number gives you direct access to an experienced broker We help buyers arrange surveys, insurance and any remedial work We keep a close eye on levels of interest and will constantly tweak and fine tune the marketing campaign A cost-effective result! As you’ll see from the above, we do everything most brokers do, except take photographs and attend viewings. We reasoned that in order to make substantial savings, most vendors are happy to undertake these straightforward tasks themselves (with expert guidance from us). If you would prefer us to take photos and attend viewings, we can do so for a small additional fee. We will stay with you until your boat is sold – with no time limits Because we only work with boats valued at under £20,000, you boat is important to us; you won’t be pushed to the back of the queue because we have bigger fish to fry! Remember that when you boat is sold, you get 100% of the sale proceeds – there are no further brokerage commissions or fees to be paid NO SALE, NO FEE only helps those who do not sell – it is a significant cost for those who do, because they cover the costs of those who don’t. And finally . . . We have committed to making a donation to the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust for every boat we list.
