TIME FOR A NEW ONE? let bates wharf sell your boat
When selling your boat, there are a couple of options. We offer a comprehensive brokerage service and part exchange where possible*.
We work with you to establish a realistic sales price for your boat, photograph it (when possible) and complete a full specification for online and in-showroom marketing.

disADVANTAGES OF SELLING ON BROKERAGE
- If you have found your dream boat and are waiting on your current boat to sell via brokerage, this can cause a delay, but not to worry – you can part exchange!
- Boat sales can be seasonal dependant which could affect the time scale of sale
- Upon survey, the client can negotiate the price over works where required; this can delay a sale
advantages of part exchange
- You are never without a boat
- If we have the boat in stock or it is a stock owned used boat, you can be back on the water within two weeks
- If it is a stock boat, the boat will be sold fully valeted, serviced and antifouled (where required) and comes with three months engine warranty

Disadvantages of part exchange
- You may receive a higher re-sale figure if sold privately or on brokerage.
