Boatshed goes Responsive! Today, nearly 30% of Boatshed's traffic is mobile. By the end of next year, this may exceed 50% Tablet sales are expected to exceed 100 million this year. Smartphones, of course, are also a hot commodity, with the majority of people now owning a smartphone. The shift to mobile is happening at an extraordinary speed. For those of us who create the Boatshed websites and services, all this leads to a singular conclusion: A million screens have bloomed, and we need to build websites that work better on all of them.
Before you travel to view a boat, check out all pictures and video of every boat for sale. Our brokers take all their own pictures so you can see the up to date information and full inventory of each boat.
If you are thinking of selling your boat, then have a chat to one of our Boatshed Brokers and they will explain how Boatshed can help sell your boat and what they will do for you.
Today saw me on the Southern Broads carrying out a handover on a rather special Hampton Safari. "Osprey" is one of only 2 built for private customers that has never been in a hire fleet. She is in stunning condition, the pictures show the previous owner John with new owners Malcolm and Ailsa. This really is one of the most rewarding aspects of selling boats.
Today was survey day for me here at Boatshed Norfolk. We had a Beneteau oceanis 321 being surveyed over in Wisbech and a rather unusual Norman 266 Wide Beam surveyed by Steve Truss of Insught Marine Surveys. I'm happy to say both went very well as you can see in the picture of the Norman along with previous and new owner on board after survey. ,
