British Marine Boat Retailers & Brokers launches its video & Boat Buying Guide

British Marine Boat Retailers & Brokers has recently produced an animated video that helps highlight the essential questions consumers should consider before purchasing a new or second-hand boat.

The video and the association’s newly rebranded and updated Boat Buying Guide give consumers a wealth of information to think about before buying a boat. This includes promoting the choosing of brokers and dealers who are members of British Marine Boat Retailers & Brokers, and highlighting how members adhere to a Code of Practice. Other key points include title documentation, industry approved contracts and designated client account, all of which are worth considering before the purchase of a boat.

This video can be found alongside the handy guidance, which is available for you to download free of charge.
