Larger boats have still been selling since
January this year! Why?
Well, there are two main reasons for the stability of boat sales.
A couple of years ago, the market showed a rise in sales due to the
dramatic drop in the exchange rate of the Pound/Euro. This swapped the
normal state from boats being cheaper outside the UK to being cheaper inside
the UK. Hence, buyers were coming from abroad, scooping up the bargains and
taking them back with them or having them sailed back. This has meant that a
quantity of the "best buys" have literally gone abroad, draining and livening up the
British market somewhat.
Secondly, Those who would normally buy second/holiday
homes have been avoiding the house market and turning their sights to the
larger boats as an alternative. Boats, on average, seem to have held their
value over the past ten years and they make a fun weekend getaway residence.
stabilised boat sales, much like that of the post-recession years
in the housing market and making it more challenging to find a suitable boat
for Living Aboard.
So, don't waste any time and get out there before the
boat market "dries up".
Don't forget to go to the
Ancasta Boatshow! at Hamble until the end of October.
And........pay a visit to the new Ancasta Offices at Premier's new Chichester Marina.
