Preferred Partners Scheme  ‘Bringing down the cost of boat ownership’

Preferred Partners Scheme ‘Bringing down the cost of boat ownership’

Tuesday, 24 May 2016

Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Scheme is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
