Southampton’s Deacons Used Boat Show calls for listings
With demand for used boats having never been higher, Deacons Used Boat Show, taking place 10-19 September in Bursledon, Southampton, is open for owners to list their boats at the upcoming show.
The organisers say that with staycationing more popular than ever as the uncertainty over foreign travel continues, boating is booming, and many people are buying for the first time or upgrading their yachts.
Taking place at the same time, and a short drive from, the Southampton International Boat Show, the Deacons Used Boat Show will showcase an extensive selection of used power and sail boats. Hosted at boatfolk’s Deacons Marina, Burseldon, the event will be open daily from 10am to 6pm.
The show will be organised by WhyBoats International Yacht Brokers.
“Listing your boat for the show is as easy as picking up the phone. Just give us a call and we’ll do the rest,” says Andy Hyland, WhyBoats’ director. “The £300* listing fee is really competitive and includes a whole host of benefits too.
“It really is the ideal time for anyone wishing to sell their boat. The market is really buoyant, and we’ve got a hungry pool of buyers ready to view the listed boats, both power and sail, ensuring a quick sale.”
By listing a boat with Whyboats at the Deacons Used Boat Show sellers will have a discounted commission rate (5 per cent plus VAT), receive a free lift, scrub and block off, two-months free storage ashore followed by 25 per cent off storage ashore until 31 December 2021.
*Listing fee is £300 for boats up to 10m and £395 for boats up to 12m.
Whyboats was founded in 2011 and is based in Deacons Marina and Boatyard.
