Boatshed have teamed up with professional drone photographers AltiVision to offer a completely new perspective on boats for sale.

By utilising drones, we hope we are able to bring this service to many people selling their boats with Boatshed”.

Together with the Marine Inspection Association of leading marine surveyors, Boatshed has introduced the use of IPAs when selling sail and motor boats.
