British Waterways Marinas Ltd, one of the largest marina operators in the country, has appointed Boatshed.com as its sole provider of brokerage at its marinas in the South and West.

Both companies say the move will improve user experience for berth holders looking to sell their boats.

The marinas that will now be serviced by Boatshed.com include Priory Bedford, Cowroast, Apsley, Packet Boat Uxbridge, Limehouse Basin, Poplar Dock, Portavon Bristol, Bath Marina, Victoria Basin and Goytre Wharf.

All brokerage at these marinas will now be undertaken by Boatshed’s specialist Inland Team. Boatshed Inland.com is a grouping of the Boatshed brokerages in the UK which operate on the Inland Waterways.

Berth holders will now have access to a full brokerage service at their local marina, by their local Boatshed broker. Their boats will be listed not only on the websites of every single Boatshed business across the world but also on their own marina sales websites, created and managed by Boatshed Inland.com.

These series of Boatshed Inland / BWML styled websites ensure that BWML retains its existing branding while benefitting from Boatshed’s tried and trusted technology platform.
