Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle is again offering boats through Boatshed.com’s BoatBid online auction. This international auction is a proven process to market boats in a unique and effective way. This is NOT an eBay-style auction — these are boats after all, and any buyer will want to be cautious to ensure a survey, a demonstration and maybe other contingencies are factored into the purchase process. BoatBid respects that! We’re all about making buyers and sellers comfortable and confident throughout the transaction. BoatBid is a good way to connect potential buyers with sellers — and the boat of their dreams!
Boatshed’s clever use of technology and customer-focussed processes have been heralded as a shining example by the UK Government.

Perhaps it’s no great shock to hear that marine crime is on the increase, but particularly worrying is the shear scale of current thefts from boats in Devon and Cornwall. All too often boat crime is seen as ‘a minor inconvenience that the insurance will cover’ but its clear that what is going on in many cases is well organised, well thought out mass theft of outboards in particular. In some cases some yards have been targeted not once, but twice within a matter of weeks and its likely outboards were all but being stolen to order.
Boatshed Hamble are proud to announce there support of this years RYA Motor Cruise.
