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 Federation 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 selers monies until the transaction is complete.

We operate our brokerage service from Great Haywood Marina in Stafford, Wigrams Turns and Ventnor Farm Marinas in Warwickshire, Barton Turns Marina near Burton, Kings Bromley Marina near Lichfield, Heritage Marina in Cheshire,  Fazeley Marina in Tamworth, Sherborne Wharf in Birmingham.

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

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 locationa have a dedicated sales area where they are correctly presented and well maintained and all our viewings are accompanied.

Choosing Great Haywood Boat Sales to sell your boat offers you the following;

  • We will value your boat correctly and not tell you what you want to hear just to get you on our books.

  • Accompanied viewings. We do not just give keys out to your boat to potential buyers. We accompany all viewings so we can answer any questions that a potential buyer may have and we sell the value of your boat.
  • We will only show potential buyers your boat if they are in a position to purchase, have the funds available and if it fits their criteria, budget, etc.
  • We sell most boats on the first, second or third viewings because we profile potential buyers to make sure that your vessel fits their criteria, budget, etc. It's not about the quantity of viewings it's about the quality of the viewings.

Why do I have to wait upto 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 clearence 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
