Making buying or selling
a new or used boat
an enjoyable experience

We’ve been part of the boating community for over 20 years and over that time we’ve learnt that it’s as much about people as it is about boats.

We believe that buying or selling a boat should be a pleasure and at The New & Used Boat Co that’s exactly what we aim to make it.

Our team of people simply live and breathe boats so right from the off you’ll be talking to a boating enthusiast not a sales person. And whether you’re a first timer or an old hand we have everything in place to make the whole process nothing short than enjoyable.

Try before you buy

We have more demonstrators than you can shake a stick at. Seriously, there isn’t any where else you can visit in the UK to see such a wide collection of demonstrators available for you to view – not from just one company.

Our demonstrators are available to view at either our Hanbury Wharf or Mercia Marina. PLEASE NOTE: Our demonstrator range changes on a regular basis so please contact the base you are planinng to visit, before you set off, to ensure a particular boat is there for you to view.

With The New & Used Boat Co you don’t have to imagine you can see, touch and experience. If you’re serious about buying a new boat for choice, value and expert advice give us a try before you buy.

A brokerage service
that works for
both buyer and seller

Over the years we’ve turned our brokerage service into a fine art and nothing reflects this better than our primary location at Mercia Marina which is a fantastic showcase for our used boat collection.

Our full colour printed particulars, targeted emailings, social media activity and press advertising make sure vendors and buyers are bought together in a mutually beneficial way. For extra peace of mind we’re proud members of the BRBA (Boat Retailers & Brokers Association) which commits us to a strict code of practice that gives you financial security.

With The New & Used Boat Co you can sell with ease and buy with confidence.

A trusted aftersales
service for
after you’ve bought

The New and Used Boat Co. isn’t one of those companies that loves the customer while they’re buying, then leaves them high and dry once the sales agreement has been signed.

A great deal of thought and planning has been put into the after-sales service. We have our own team dedicated to purely aftersales. We can’t promise every little thing is going to be perfect when you take delivery of the boat – nobody can – but we can promise to put it right as fast as possible.
