About Boatshed Lancashire

Welcome to Boatshed Lancashire covering the Northwest and Isle of Man

I was brought up in West Africa and so I have been messing around on boats since I was about 5 years old at The Lagos Yacht Club. In those early days my father used to build his own motorboats and over the years I have never been too far away from boats whether waterskiing, dinghy sailing, yachting or powerboating.

I first came across Boatshed back in 2007 when I had my own business buying and selling boats,mainly Ribs and I was also involved in Rib manufacture and re-tubing. I immediately saw the benefits of the system and the growing brand and even considered trying to replicate the system but soon realised I would need very deep pockets for the marketing alone in order to match the international reach of the Boatshed brand so eventually we decided to buy Boatshed Lancashire.

Boatshed Lancashire is a part of the hugely successful ‘Boatshed.Com’ Yacht Brokerage family, which has a wide range of new and used boats for sale to suit all tastes and pockets.
