Hello.
We have just joined this forum as we are looking for a single level boat for sale that sleeps 5/6.  Ideally we would like the roof to pull back too.  Could anyone tell me when would be the best time to look for these sort of boats?
Many thanks.
Cheryl

The best time to look for a boat in this country is probably October to February, that is of course if you are looking to get the best price. If of course you want a boat for use this Summer, then the best time to buy is now.

if it is to be it is up to me.

Hi Cheryl and welcome to the forum. You don't say what your budget is, but something like this might fit the bill.

Easter used to be the best time to buy a boat, with folk selling up before tolls and mooring fees were due. Now it doesn't seem to make any difference what time of the year you look, it's simply a case of being in the right place at the time something that takes your fancy becomes available.

Hello Steve.

Thank you for your post.  We actually viewed that boat and the Dawncraft alongside it and both are projects.  My husband is a builder and there is a lot of work to do on these boat to bring them up to spec unfortunately.

Thank you for your advice. Can I ask, if you put an offer on a boat, when should you get a response?

That rather depends on who is handling the sale. If it’s the owner, I would expect a pretty swift response. If it’s a broker, they may have to contact the owner first, so there may be a longer delay. Unless the owner proves difficult to contact for some reason, I wouldn’t expect a delay of more than a few days.

When we bought our current boat through NYA at Brundall, they were able to contact the vendor by phone and the deal was concluded within 15 minutes.

We put an offer on two boats and no response at all?!  I would have thought through courtesy the broker would have came back with some sort of answer.

Sounds like poor brokering to me, unless your offers were ridiculously low. The idea is to get a sale, so communication is essential.
