Imagine you could do a favour for a friend or someone you know by helping them to sell their boat.

Now imagine earning some valuable commission as your reward on the sale of that boat. Up to 2.5% of boat value, to be precise!

This is what Boatshed’s ‘Refer a Boat’ scheme is all about – and it’s a great opportunity for you to earn extra income while doing something you enjoy.

No experience? No problem.

Even with just a basic understanding of boats, you’ll be in good company with hundreds of others who have successfully taken part in the scheme.

Whether you’re retired, perhaps working with boats or just love being around or involved with boats – the connections you have or make with boat owners wanting to sell their boats will be all the more worthwhile.

Referring a boat can earn you a substantial reward

Simply introduce a used boat for Boatshed to promote on our listings. On the successful completion of the sale, you’ll receive your commission. It’s that easy!

Why you should get on board with Boatshed

From our first boat sale in 1999, Boatshed is now one of the world’s largest yacht brokers, selling more boats – faster – than traditional brokerages. So that’s good news for you and the boat owner you’re representing.

And with more than 70 brokerage offices around the world, Boatshed’s global coverage is matched only by the diversity of our 20,000-plus boat sales to date.

From popular offshore family sailing boats and motor cruisers to houseboats and narrow boats on inland waterways – right through to blue water cruisers, ocean racing yachts and elite super yachts.

Whatever type of boat you’re thinking about referring – if it’s accepted onto Boatshed’s listings – and it sells – you’ll earn up to 2.5% of the sale price of the boat.

Referring a boat is easy

All you need to do is head straight to the Refer a Boat page on the Boatshed website. Sign up, log in – and you’re ready to go with your personal Boatshed account!

And remember, you don’t need any special experience. On your part there is:

  • No training necessary
  • No selling required
  • No risk involved

Once your referral is registered, Boatshed’s brokerage team will personally visit the boat and check its credentials. Once uploaded as a listing to the Boatshed website and syndicated to other major listings platforms, our bespoke technology takes over to match prospective buyers with the boat that you have referred.

On completion of the sale, Boatshed pays your commission.
