2016 Boatshed Conference
On 11th and 12th January 2016, Boatshed held its Annual European Conference in Gosport. Brokers from all over Europe joined us for 2 days of Presentations, Networking, Discussions and the Annual Boatshed Awards.
Graham and Magali Wharmby from Boatshed Bourgogne and Boatshed Midi Canals shared the Award for ‘Broker of the Year’ overall with Scott and Lisa Helker and their Team from Boatshed Seattle and Boatshed Tacoma.
There were other awards for best Customer Service, Best Boatshed Vehicle and Best New Kid on the Block among others.
For the first time, the Conference was live streamed to those brokers who were not able to attend in person, and key presentations and workshops are available to be revisited online by our brokers.
We are always looking to expand our reach with the right individuals.

Boatshed - Charter Boats
Featured on Boatshed BVI are our new Charter boats section, if you're looking to charter a boat in the Caribbean look no further...
New Boatshed App technology makes it quicker and easier for a broker to accurately record all the information we need about a boat, allowing Boatshed to get boats listed and live even quicker.
All the old small images are being removed, meaning all boat images on Boatshed are now all the larger photos, so that you can see the boats in better detail.
Utilising a whole new advertising channel, Boatshed are now using Google AdWords to ensure a Boatshed boat is even more visible online.
New, improved brokerage documents including contractual and marketing documents.
We firmly believe that our Broker Network and Technology keep us ahead of the pack, enabling us to deliver outstanding and market leading customer service and result to sellers and buyers.
