Boatshed, Europe’s fastest growing yacht brokerage has launched it newest office in East Anglia. Boatshed has been successfully selling boats in the region for a number of years from its Boatshed Norfolk and Boatshed Essex offices, which are now being joined by Boatshed Suffolk.

Having taken over the Norfolk office in September last year Will Farnell and Gary Travis will be operating the new Suffolk office. “For us it was a very logical next step, Gary lives in Norfolk and I live in Suffolk, and we are both excited by the growing leisure marine presence on the East Coast” said Will, “we have been amazed at the success and reactions we have received from customers since taking over the Norfolk office. We have exceeded our own expectation in all areas, and we are therefore positive about the potential within Suffolk. We are relishing the opportunity of offering a new approach to brokerage to boat owners in Suffolk.”

“We will operate the Suffolk business from our current base at Bells Marina in Norfolk until such time as we find a suitable location in Suffolk”, explains Gary. “We will of course be ensuring we remain visible across Suffolk to take the boatshed approach to brokerage across the County”.

Whilst the Norfolk and Essex offices have been listing and selling boats in Suffolk, the establishment of the Suffolk brand will ensure that Boatshed is more able to provide the level of service and coverage that customers expect from Boatshed brokers.

Boatshed brokers personally visit and take up to 70 photographs of every boat they list and all prospective buyers are accompanied on every viewing by the broker and the launch of the Suffolk brand will ensure we can meet the needs of customers right across Suffolk.

Whilst the www.boatshedsuffolk.com site is up and running now the new business is to be officially launched at a pre season launch party at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club on Friday 30th March from 3:00 until 7:00. Why not come along and celebrate the launch with us and enjoy a glass of fizz send us an email to party@boatshedsuffolk.com

To mark the launch we are offering discounted commissions on the first 20 boat listed in Suffolk so contact Will or Gary on 01603 717989 to take up this introductory offer, but remember we operate on a no-sale no-fee so nothing to pay up front and then a discount when we sell your boat.
