Bidding has just begun for the July 2016 Boatbid!
With over 60 lots, the July Boatbid boat auction has something for everyone. If you haven't taken a look at the online catalogue, you should do so now.

Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Scheme is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
The next BoatBid Boat Auction is on 15 - 19 July 2016. This time there's specialist categories for various types of boats including Narrowboats, Barges, sail, Power and Commercial Boats and many more.

BoatBid enables the boat buyer to bid with the confidence that any boat can be surveyed and sea trialed before you make the decision to purchase. The transaction is handled by one of Boatshed's brokers.
The first time I came across BoatBid boat auction website I was really unsure about making a bid. There were a couple of boats I was really interested in and wanted to be happy before I dived right in. I'd got lots of questions like: Can I have a survey? Will I have any time to see the boat before I finally buy? When, Where do I need to transfer the money?
