On May Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd, Boatshed Suffolk would like you to join them to 'Push the boat out' at Shotley Marina.

The RYA's 'Push The boat out' is an initiative to get Britain onto the water. Whether you are already a regular sailor or windsurfer, or would just like to give it a go, 'Push The boat out' offers everyone across the UK an opportunity to jump onboard for free or at a nominal cost.

Pennie and Alan Nash, Boatshed Suffolk, your onsite local yacht brokerage, will be at the event throughout the weekend welcoming guests and being on hand to talk about and offer viewings on local boats currently for sale. If you are looking to sell your boat do come along and have a chat about what they can do to sell your boat. Selling your Boat through Boatshed

This is a great event, we love introducing people to boating and have a huge range of good value starter boats for sale. We advise when you buy a boat to get own boat tuition to get to know the boat, this way you'll learn faster and have more confidence, plus be taught tricks about berthing in close quarter in a marina, or picking up a buoy in windy weather. Come and chat to us about what would be your ideal first boat.
