Buying a Boat
We can help you through the whole process of buying your dream boat, with friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff on hand to guide you. Once you have decided to make an offer on a boat, we do all the negotiating with the vendor on your behalf.
With an accepted offer in place we can advise you of local surveyors and arrange for the boat to be craned out of the water for underwater survey. If there are any further negotiations required after the survey report, we handle these for you and once you are happy with the purchase price and all arrangements, we invoice you for the boat on behalf of the Vendor. We can assist with arrangements with various finance companies for you SGB for Beneteau Group products or Lombard
The monies you pay go directly into a Clients Holding Account at our Bank (Not into Maiden Marine funds). Whilst your money clears in this account, we make sure that we have all paperwork and appropriate Bills of Sale in place from the vendor. He does not receive any money until we have clear title for the boat. Equally you do not receive the title documents until we are sure your money is cleared in the Clients Account.
At this point we can also help with obtaining insurance cover for your new boat through our friends at
We can also help with finding a mooring for your new yacht, either a swinging mooring or marina berth to suit your requirements, both here on the Lake, or further afield.
Now in possession of your new craft, we don’t abandon you! We can help to organise sailing lessons, or re-fresher courses with our on-site sailing school (www.obsailing.co.uk)
and we are always on hand seven days a week to answer any queries you may have. We can carry out all types of service work on your new boat from providing new covers and canopies to servicing the engine and painting the hull!
We hope you enjoy your new boat and whether it has cost £1,000 or £100,000 we are here to turn your sailing dreams into reality!
