They feel very strongly that owners of lower value boats should not have to pay high brokerage commissions to sell their pride and joy. As a result, they provide a professional service to boat sellers and buyers – across the UK – which includes a full conveyancing package and worldwide marketing, making traditional brokerage affordable for owners of smaller boats.
