Boat Retailers & Brokers Association (BRBA)

Boat Retailers & Brokers logo

The Boat Retailers and Brokers Association (BRBA) represents all companies and individuals involved in the sale of new and second-hand craft. It encourages the training and development of individuals working in this field and aims to identify, debate and resolve the specific issues affecting the boat retail and brokerage sector. Read our BRBA constitution.

Members of the BRBA, which includes over 200 marine businesses, include boat brokers and retailers, all of whom must adhere to the BRBA Code of Practice.

The code was enforced to heighten consumer confidence by providing a set of comprehensive regulations for brokers and retailers.

Alongside the Code of Practice, the Boat Buyer's Guide provides buyers with a list of considerations to take into account before committing to a boat purchase. Factors include the operation of a designated client account, RCD compliance and finance arrangements. The Code of Practice and Boat Buyer’s Guide aim to make boat purchases seamless and risk free. Access to both documents can be found below.
