Mainland Europe

When thinking about buying a used boat, a good place to *start* is Apollo Duck. They have numerous listings from both brokers and private owners, allowing you a good first look at what sorts of boats are available at what price.


UK

Boat builders, brokers, marinas, chandleries, etc.

When thinking about buying a used boat, a good place to *start* is Apollo Duck UK. They have numerous listings from both brokers and private owners, allowing you a good first look at what sorts of boats are available at what price.

Note: marinas, boatbuilding, services, etc. are all thrown together below. Since many of the listed businesses provide multiple services, I have not attempted to separate them into multiple categories. Use the search function of your browser (usually Ctrl+f) to look for a keyword related to what you are looking for, for example, "build", or "mooring".


Engines and Propulsion


Electrical


Paint, Coatings, and Sign Writing


Heating/Stoves/Hot Water


Specialty Products


Boat Surveyors, Examiners, Consultants

In additional to those listed below, use the search function of your web browser (usually Ctrl+f) to search this page for "survey", as firms elsewhere classified (such as boat builders and marinas) may also offer surveys and safety exams.

Boat Moving


Boat Insurance/Finance
