Anybody ever heard of this brokerage?
I've been watching a certain model 80's vintage boat for a while now. Suddenly today a new version shows up on yachtworld represented by boatshed and offer pending already.
In order to see pictures of the boat, you have to register with boatshed. They brand themselves as a different kind of brokerage.
Something seems amiss.

Xort-

There was a post or two about how Boatshed.com was a scam about a month ago. I don't know whether that post was valid or genuine...but that was one of the claims.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

All I found was a comment that they are Euro based. Do I need better search skills?

Xort...they have a different approach, perhaps due to Euro base and francise nature of the operation...You can view the pix after registering...just give a phony name and e-mail...no checking.

lisa1944red is on a distinguished road
Boatshed.com

Hi there,

Boatshed.com is not new, they have been trading since 1999. They now have 62 offices in UK, USA, Europe and Australia. I can assure you they are a bona fide company why not check it out or give them a call +44 2392 523992. They have 1,920 boats listed for sale and over 200,000 registered customers - so hardly a scam site.

If you are looking to buy or sell a boat it is well worth checking them out.
