This week saw the Boatshed 2016 2 day Conference held in Gosport at Hardy’s at Haslar Marina. There was representation from approximately 40 Boatshed locations, including the UK and Europe, along with a number of members of the Boatshed HQ team.
After spending six months in Denmark, we’re now once again back on the boat and ready to engage in new cruising adventures! In late November, we returned to the boat, which had been on the hard in Indiantown near Lake Okeechobee in southern Florida. Florida is within the hurricane belt, but luckily for us none of the hurricanes this year went as far north as Florida.
At Boatshed we are always thinking of ways to help people sell their boats more efficiently and providing a better service to both seller and purchaser.
From the start, Boatshed has always been about promoting and harnessing those family values that most boaters share; spending time together afloat with family and friends; owning a beloved boat that becomes part of the family; weekends spent at anchorages in hidden bays and coves; introducing children to the joys of boating and adventures at sea; the camaraderie that comes with Club and team racing events; endlessly fiddling with engines, warps, sheets and halyard in all types of weather and conditions, and the occasional, perfect, sunset reach or motor home after a fabulous boating trip!
If you fancy a dip in the sea at Christmas, you are either brave/daft or raising money for charity – after all who would want to leave the comfort of their over warm homes to jump into icy waters if it wasn’t for charity!?
We love at Boatshed.com helping Owners sell their boats and matching potential buyers to boats that suit and match their dreams. One of our latest sales was this 2002 Grand Banks 52 Europa, Lying in Italy, which sold for full asking price.
