All the boats for sale at Whilton Marina are marketed to sell and are realistically priced, meaning that the turnover of boats is incredibly high which is good news is for sellers, buyers and us.

We know what our customers expect from us, we have listened and learned over the years and this is why we can now provide a match matching service. Prospective buyers enroll onto our complex database that gathers important information, this allows us to match our boats to the right people. If we don’t have a boat to match a buyers requirements at the time of registration, we do our upmost to find a boat that does meet their needs.

For a really fast deal we will buy your boat for cash! Fancy a 24-hour price promise? If you do it means you’ll get the cash in the bank within 24 hours of agreeing a price with us. It’s the quickest ways to sell your narrow boat.
