In today’s modern market place where buyers are able to search globally for boats, a detailed professional approach to brokerage is important. At Red Ensign we undertake a series of detailed actions to ensure your boat is marketed prominently and then take great care to ensure that each purchaser enquiry is handled effectively.
But it’s not just the advertising and enquiry handling that sets Red Ensign apart. We take an in-depth approach to the whole sales and purchase process, calling on professional relationships with reputable marine service suppliers and international brokerage contacts. Once a buyer is found, we make the transaction as smooth as possible for both the vendor and the purchaser. Our many client testimonials, which we value as the true measure of Red Ensign’s success, are proof of this claim.
Your boat doesn’t need to be in Cornwall or Devon in order for us to help with the sale as we have years of experience managing successful sales across the UK and overseas. Combining our expertise with your personal knowledge of your boat, we will work with you to achieve the best result.
