Boatshed Annual Conference

On 11th and 12th January 2016, Boatshed held its Annual European Conference in Gosport. Brokers from all over the UK and 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 & 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. If you would like information about a Boatshed Business and training with us to become a Boatshed Broker, or you are an existing Marine business who would like to increase sales by using our platform, or if you are interested in a Boatshed Partnership or working as an local Agent, please take a look at our business website or give us a call on 0044 1983 869203.

New Technology

We have introduced, and are in the process of introducing, the following upgrades, improvements and new developments to and we are working on many improvements to the website so that its even easier to find the boat that you are looking for.

A series of improvements to the BoatBid Boat Auction website, making it a better customer experience and easier to use.

A soon to be launched replacement to the BoatFinder system; Saved Searches makes it simple to be notified of new boats added to the Boatshed system.

Also soon to be launched, the new similar boats feature will enable the Boatshed system to suggest similar boats to the ones the customer is looking at to help them with their search.

Our "New Boats" listings have been improved with more 'new boats' now available on the Boatshed system.

Boatshed has also extended our offering to include Charter Boats, if you fancy going to BVI's for a charter holiday check out all these boats.

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.

Utilising a whole new advertising channel, Boatshed are now using Google AdWords to ensure a Boatshed boat is even more visible online, boat sellers ask your local Boatshed Broker about creating extra adverts in Google.

Boatshed has improved documents including contractual and marketing documents.

Last but not least

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.
