Ahead of our open day event, which is being held this Saturday 11th March, you may wish to know a little bit more about our narrowboat brokerage here at Trinity Marinas.
First and foremost, we help people buy and sell canal boats. You can sell your boat through Trinity Marinas with the confidence that it will be thoughtfully represented by our team, and that it will benefit from prominent display in our marina, which is frequented by a steady stream of potential buyers. Narrowboats for sale in our marina are seen by a varied clientele, including those eating and drinking in neighbouring establishments as well as customers of the marina’s car dealerships. We will also prepare a promotional brochure containing photos of your narrowboat, as well as its features and specifications, which we send out and give to potential buyers.
On top of this we routinely generate sales through a number of means; marketing drives, advertisement on our own and other relevant websites, advertisements in the local paper and trade magazines, as well as through contacting our existing database of buyers. We are able to isolate buyers in our database who may be interested in your boat by using a search function which hones in on their required criteria. Once interest is generated, via any of the above means, we book each potential buyer in for a viewing conducted by one of our team members. Rest assured, people are never allowed to wander around your boat unattended!
We also specialise in advising buyers on the most suitable narrowboat for their needs, whether they want to use the boat as a permanent residence, for the occasional staycation or anything in between. First time buyers especially benefit from this service, as we are able to field questions on everything from moorings, boat insurance, finance options, to licensing and other costs associated with a life on the water.
Whether you are looking to buy or sell a boat, or just want to experience one first-hand, stop by our open day this Saturday 11th March. We’ll be here from 10:30am to 3:30pm, and will be more than happy to advise you on anything narrowboat-related.
