New Partnership Announced

BYB Join Forces with Holman Marine Solutions

Broadland Yacht Brokers are pleased to announce that they will be taking over the private brokerage arm of Holman Marine Solutions in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft. This is a huge boost to the newly formed company and one that will bring customers a greater choice of used boats for sale in the future along with options for storage and maintenance.   

Located on the salt side of Oulton Broad Holman Marine Solutions offer a range of services from berthing and storage, lift outs, boat building and engineering.  Director, Tony Holman is passionate about boats, the water and for providing the highest quality workmanship - an ethos shared and promoted by Broadland Yacht Brokers Ltd.

After studying at the International Boat Building Training College, Tony decided to open his own business in commercial boat repair and maintenance.  As the reputation of the yard has grown he has gained more varied commercial work along with work on recreational craft.  With their contracts for the repair and maintenance of offshore wind farm support vessels the types of work undertaken at the Excelsior Yard is wide and varied - there's always an interesting selection of boats to see.  Tony's work force is both highly skilled, flexible, keen and more than able to handle both large and small projects anything from total fit outs and new builds to traditional repair on all sizes of craft.  Advice is given freely and consultancy services including surveying are available.  Tony is a well respected, fully insured and qualified marine surveyor for both commercial and pleasure craft.  He offers a range of surveys from pre-purchase to general condition reports, moisture surveys and ones for insurance purposes.  All customers are given a free full engine and propulsion survey by a Volvo engineer who accompanies him.

Lift outs are charged at £3.20+VAT per foot with short haul priced at just £2.00+VAT per foot.  Hard standing is available at a cost of £3.25+VAT per foot per month and customers selling their boats through Broadland Yacht Brokers pay nothing for storage until the boat is sold (capped at one year).  For customers unsure about bringing their boat through Mutford Lock to reach the yard, Tony and his staff will bring her through free of charge with no lock charges to pay - they can also arrange for free collection and delivery from your mooring.  And with Broadland Yacht Brokers offering highly competitive commission rates on a no sale, no fee basis, there has never been a better time to sell your boat. 

Broadland Yacht Brokers are looking forward to working together with Holman Marine Solutions in the future.  For more information call 01603 783322 or view our boats for sale at or visit to see how Tony and the crew can help you.
