Brokerage Service Options
Although pre-owned Drascombes are a speciality of Churchouse Boats and we have a vast knowledge of the range of Drascombes, we are pleased to announce that our brokerage service has been expanded to include other makes of traditional and classic trailer sailers.
We will work with you offering advice and support in order to gain a good price for your boat.
We are happy to talk to you about the benefits of selling your boat on brokerage through ourselves.
With our full brokerage service, we take on your boat and do all the work for you.
From when the boat arrives at our yard, we will do a full inventory and ask you to sign this.
From there, if we feel that the boat could achieve a higher price, then we will suggest some basic work to be undertaken.
The boat will then be rigged and photos taken, we do ask if possible for some photos from the seller showing the boat on the water, as this does stand out more on the website.
We will then put an advert together and place it on the website.
All enquiries will come direct to ourselves, and we will be available to show prospective buyers the boat.
Negotiations will be undertaken by us, and all of the paperwork will be dealt with by ourselves.
With 20 years of building and selling Drascombes, along with Sharon attending a British Marine brokerage course, you can be assured of a high standard of service being provided by the team.
Collection can be arranged for a fee.
Full brokerage fee - 10% of the final selling price plus VAT
Storage fee - Three months free of charge, after that a nominal fee of £15.00 per month plus VAT will be applicable.
Please note - Insurance still needs to be in place while the boat is for sale on brokerage until the sale has been completed.
You have no commitment until we have taken a deposit on your boat & can withdraw at any time without liability except for the storage fees and collection charge, if incurred.
If you are willing to share the workload, we can offer a remote brokerage service.
We will advise you on how best to prepare your boat and set a realistic price
Full advice will be given on suitable photographs for you to take, to show as much details of your boat as possible.
Using these details we will then create an advert for you which will be placed on our website, we will then market the boat and introduce potential buyers to you.
This leaves you to show potential buyers the boat and to negotiate any potential sale. However some people find this difficult and we would be happy to handle this for you.
Our fee for remote brokerage is 8% of the agreed selling price plus VAT. Payment only becomes due when a sale is successfully concluded.
By past performance & current advertising in the primary ‘trade’ press, we are recognised as a prime forum for trading Drascombes and a large number of those people seeking Drascombes will contact us. You can therefore be confident that your boat is being properly presented & marketed to potential buyers, not only to achieve full potential of your boat, but to bring the next owner years of fun and adventure.
With both full brokerage and remote brokerage services, we do ask for full exclusivity regarding the advertising and sale of your boat.
