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.

BoatBid the successful auction arm of means you can bid and purchase boats in a secure auction environment, PLUS you can view and survey boats prior to purchase.

Remember all the boats featured will have full spec, stacks of photos and videos. The catalogue goes live 30 days before the auction starts, so this gives you enough time to visit the boat before you finally place your bid.

The success of BoatBid and online auctions has been very surprising over the last few years and the challenge of correctly pricing boats has become more critical to the boats sale. BoatBid has continued to invest in its technology, transparency, processes and is now focusing on very specialised boat categories. The demand of people wanting to place their boats in auctions continues to grow and by creating specialist auctions it will focus potential purchasers on each distinct auction event.
