Buying a Boat

Buying a boat

Gold standard used boats

Richard Trafford our managing director has been selling new and used Jeanneau yachts and power boats since 1998 into, Plymouth, Devon, Cornwall and throughout the South West.  Many of the used Jeanneau boats in Plymouth and Cornwall you will find have been sold by Richard at sometime.

Over the years we have sold literally thousands of boats and earned an enviable reputation in the industry for our quality service.

“I take pride in personally visiting the boats we list for sale, unless they are really good clean boats we simply don’t list them”

We have a large repeat business and many of the boats on my brokerage are owned as part exchanges or have been inspected ready to be taken in part exchange.

The Gold standard

When we purchase boats, we self survey the hull deck and superstructure, we have the engine serviced and inspected by the main agents and have the mast, standing and running checked by our riggers.

Once satisfied the boats are good for us to buy we do the following works –

Hull cleaned and re antifoul painted

Anodes replaced

Propellers serviced

Cockpit and coach roof polished

Winches serviced

Teak cleaned brightened and treated

Interior valet

Batteries tested

Electronics checked

Engine serviced by main agents

Stainless polished

Gas pipes checked and pressure testing of the systems

Water tanks cleaned and the system purified

We then provide a full warranty for three months, a comprehensive handover of the boat and systems and a skipper for a full day to help you get used to the new boat.

In addition we provide a trade cost fitting out chandlery service for our customers to help complete your new boat at the lowest cost. We deal direct with Ocean safety, Seago, Plastimo, Lewmar, and Bainbridge on the chandlery side and Volvo, Yanmar, Yamaha, and Suzuki for engines.

We can offer finance with fixed or variable term mortgages over 10 and 15 year terms and we also offer insurance with special Trafford yachts customer benefits at very keen prices.

If your considering a used boat why not give us a call and discuss your requirements with me or one of my knowledgeable staff and see for yourself why so many people come to us for their boats
