This is where we publish our boat related stories and articles, which range from world circumnavigation to rescue missions, humour and much, much more. So make yourself a coffee and settle yourself down to a good read.
As well as our local offices the team from Boatshed like to get out and about, so here is where you will find us this July.

Seaworks is a bit like a boat show but one where they bring along all the big boys toys :). Big boats and big gear is the story of the day here. If you like your Seafaring gear to be that little bit over spec, then you will love this event.
Boatshed partner with PSP to facilitate the simpler sale and transport of used commercial vessels across the world.
I met Steve and Kaz at the Southampton Boatshow 2015 during 'fizz@five' when Jeanne Socrates (oldest woman to sail solo around the world non-stop) popped over to see us and bring her inspiring friends along to our stand. Steve Pointon a Royal Navy Chief Petty Officer is setting sail to circumnavigate the UK in his boat 'Tikka' with the aim to raise £10,000 and awareness of the work of Action for Children, a charity which works in local communities across the UK to make disadvantaged children's lives better.
If you are looking for a boat to race around and have serious fun on the water, take a peek at this Hull No 1 Corby 25.
How quickly can you organise a RIB RALLY in the Solent? Well it only took a few days, dedicated friends and the sun to shine to convince everyone it was a good idea.
We had a great day being towed around the Solent by our Rib-X eXplorer 600, with my mates and some cool toys, a two person Ringo, my Wakeboard and my GoPro camera to record some cool shots.
The first "first of the season" impromptu BBQ was held at Hamstead Point Beach by Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight. Amazing fun, great turn out with 7 boats, over 25 people, children and dogs. With the first great weekend weather, sunshine and a light breeze from the east, and tides perfect for a lunchtime BBQ with High water around lunchtime, we jumped at the chance for this social with the team from Rib-X and Boatshed.
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.
A Pursuit, as its name implies, is not a race. It is an opportunity to test the mettle of your boat against others. This is achieved by boats starting in groups, smallest first, with the aim of finishing at about the same time. The course starts at Gilkicker and goes round the Nab Tower and back, 20 miles.
The next BoatBid Boat Auction is on 15 - 19 July 2016. This time there's specialist categories for various types of boats including Narrowboats, Barges, sail, Power and Commercial Boats and many more.
