We have been operating for decades and we sell in excess of 350 boats per annum. 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.

If you buy through Great Haywood Boat Sales Ltd you are buying from an accredited broker. We are members of the British Marine Federation and we have to follow a strict code of practice. 

Why should I buy a boat from Great Haywood Boat Sales?

  • If there is any known finance on a boat then we always settle the outstanding finance from the proceeds of the sale. If you buy a boat that has outstanding finanace on it then you could lose the boat and your money because the sellers were not the legal owners of the boat and they had no legal right to sell it until the finance had been settled in full.
  • The sellers sign a contract to state that they are the legal owners of the vessel in order for us to advertise the vessel. When a buyer is found, the sellers sign a further contract and a bill of sale to state that they are the legal owner and that they are entitled to sell the boat to a buyer. 
  • We issue a properly executed bill of sale to shows that you are the owner of the boat. 
  • We have set up a Clients Trust Account so your money goes into a protected account. We do not release the monies to the sellers until we have handed the boat over to you.

Finding a Narrow Boat

Finding a narrow boat to meet your requirements can prove frustrating and very time consuming. Apart from a house this will probably be one of the biggest financial comitments that you will ever make. Therfore,  it is important that you make the right decision when buying a boat. We can spend quality time with you to discuss your needs and then arrange to show you the vessels that fit your criteria, requirments and budget. It is important that you have your funds in place or you finance approved before you view any boats that we have for sale as they may not be available by the time you have arranged your funds or got your finance approved.

 If you need to sell your house or are awaiting finance then we will work with you until your funds are in place and we can then show you suitable vessels that fit your budget and criteria.This will also put you in a much stronger position when buying a boat. It will also avoid any disapointment if the vessel you wanted to buy had been sold whilst you were trying to sell your house or arranging your funds or finance.

We always recommend that you contact us to arrange an appointment to discuss your requirements so we can spend quality time with you. We have many boats for sale that are located at several different Marinas and on thier own moorings all over the Country. We sell boats from more Marinas than any other broker in the Country.  We acompany all viewings so we can answer any questions that you may have. Many sellers choose us to sell their boat because we don't just hand out keys to their pride and joy and many buyers choose us because of this process. We will also ask you a few questions to acertain exactly what type of boat that you are looking for because we may have another suitable boat for you that we have just signed up on brokerage that you would not be aware of.

If you view any boats that we have for sale we will need your name and address for insurance purposes and a contact number incase the boat that you want to view is offsite or it had been sold before you had viewed the vessel. We would not want you to have a wasted journey.

Our team’s aim is to make the process as easy as possible for you.

Unlike with a car you buy a boat based on the condition of the hull and the quality of the interior rather than buying it based on its age.

We value our boats correctly so you will get value for money.

  • We sell boats all over the country, we operate from several marinas, which have all your boating requirments and facilaties at one location. We also sell boats from their home moorings all over the Country.
  • We can offer you a mooring for your new boat at a number of marinas.
  • You can browse through the large selection of boats for sale on our website, if you then call us we can let you know the location of the vessels and arrange a viewing for you. If we have not got the boat that suits your requirements then our team will endeavour to find the ideal boat for you.
  • We have new boats arriving daily so please contact us to discuss your requirements. Unlike with a car, you buy a boat based on its condition, the quality of the hull and the interior - not its age.
  • Our team are available to offer friendly advice on purchasing a Narrow Boat. We offer assistance from price negotiations through to surveys and even planning your first trip.
  • If required we also offer tuition with your new boat from steering your boat to handling your first lock.
  • We also have facilities to carry out Surveys before buying a boat and a workshop with qualified and experienced Engineers.

Please contact us before setting out.

We ask you to call us on
01889 881960 before setting out to ensure that the boats that you want to view are still available and of their locations.

We do not put Sold on our boat page listing until the sale has been completed. This is done to ensure that we do not lose any potential interest in the vessel should a sale not complete. If, for example, we did this and 4 weeks later a sale did not complete we would of lost 4 weeks of potential interest and sales in the vessel. If you enquire about a vessel that we have taken a deposit on then we will take your details and contact you if for whatever reason the sale does not complete.

We sell boats from several marinas and from their home moorings which could be anywhere in the Country. We want to help and guide you through the buying process from start to finish. We want to spend quality time with you to assertain exactly what type of boat you are looking for and this can be acheived if you telephone us on
01889 881960 or we can book an appontment for you to discuss your requirments with a member of our team. Its important that you have the funds in place before you view any boats as the majority of boats are bespoke and they more than likely will not be available in a few weeks or months.

We have decades of experience and we can provide all your requirments from start to finish.
