Boat sold BEFORE it goes on the market

Broadland Yacht Brokers find family their ideal cruiser

Broadland Yacht Brokers Ltd currently have a wide range of boats for sale, from dinghies to large river cruisers but this weekend we negotiated a sale on a boat not even on the market.  Good going - even for us!

We were asked to look out for an aft cockpit cruiser for a family to enjoy the Broads on.  The family had owned boats in the past and had sold their last one due to the deteriorating health of their Grandad who whilst loving being afloat was struggling to get on and off their existing boat.  They decided that an aft cockpit cruiser was probably going to be the most accessible boat for him (and them) and asked us on Thursday to look out for one.  With nothing suitable currently on our books we scratched our heads and then remembered a boat that we had been asked to list next spring.  A quick call and a chat to the owner confirmed that he would be prepared to let the family look over the boat on Saturday afternoon.  

Saturday afternoon came and the heavens opened ..... it's a long walk down the banks of Potter Heigham in the cold, wind and rain but once the family saw the boat it was exactly what they were looking for and before leaving, a deal had been agreed.  We are looking forward to handing the boat over at the weekend and know that she will be well used and very well loved.  We can't wait to see the family and of course Grandad on the river enjoying a spot of fishing.

If you are looking for a boat and you dont see anything suitable on our used or new boats page, get in touch.  Registration on our customer database is free of charge, simply let us know your requirements and budget and let us do the rest.  Whilst we cant promise to find your perfect boat as quickly as we did for this family we will do our utmost to help. 

If you currently own a boat you are thinking of selling, get in touch - we might just know of a customer wanting a boat exactly like yours!  We offer highly competitive commission rates and operate on a strict no sale, no fee basis.
