Boatshed Houseboats

Selling your Houseboat with Boatshed gives you international reach and long-term support – Boatshed has improved boat listing process to make it perform better.

Selling your Houseboat is an emotional decision. It isn’t easy for an owner to part with much-loved home, and this makes a boat seller more demanding than someone who sells a car or a computer.

Boatshed has improved the listing process to make it correlate to the ways in which buyers and sellers really think. Recognising that a boat sale can take a long time, we remove the names from the boats we list, protecting the identity of the owner.
