Part Exchange

One of the most stressful things about buying a new boat is how you sell your current boat.  Putting your boat on brokerage to get the best price for your boat is an option, but it may take time and money, which means you may risk missing out on the next boat of your dreams.  At Burton Waters, we would be happy to discuss the option of part exchanging your vessel and offer competitive part-exchange deals on new and used stock boats and yachts.

the benefits

Please follow these easy steps to part exchange your vessel:

  1. View our list of current new and used stock boats, where your boat can be part exchanged.
  2. Please give our Lincoln or Ipswich office a call or email, to discuss the boat(s) you are interested in.
  3. Tell us about your boat, or complete our Value My Boat form to obtain a trade-in price.  Please note, the trade-in price will be based on your boat being in a saleable condition and will be subject to title and viewing.
  4. Put a deposit down on one of our stock boats.
  5. Submit your part exchange title documents, for approval.
  6. Once your part exchange documents have been approved, we will survey/inspect your boat, to confirm the trade-in value.  If the boat is as you described, the trade-in value will be fixed.

Note: If you have finance on your existing boat, we can also settle and deal directly with your finance company.

How do we reach a Trade-in price?

We check through our boat database to compare the retail price of the boats of similar model and age to that of your own.  We are then able to determine a trade-in price against previously sold models.

Reverse Part-Exchange

This is an additional service offered by Burton Waters Boat Sales, whereby you can part-exchange your existing boat for one of a lesser value, choosing from any of the stock or new boats listed on our Boats for Sale Section, and we will pay you the difference.

Simply use our sell your boat form, to provide all the details of your existing boat and the boat you’re interested in and we will pass the details to our underwriters, who will supply a trade value of your existing boat. A member of our staff will then inspect your boat.

Disadvantages: We only pay the 12 week value on your existing boat and deduct the cheaper boat at the asking price.

Testimonials

“I have purchased two boats from them in the past three years and found the sales team, administration and workshops absolutely first class, nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. My second purchase involved a part exchange and transport to and from my mooring at Beccles on the Norfolk Broads. Thanks to their support this all went without a hitch remarkable really as the chosen day was heavy snow.” G Pilkington, Melton Mowbray

 

“I would like to bring to your notice the extremely pleasant experience I have just had when I decided to change my Fairline Targa 43 for a Broom 530 which Burton Waters Marina had for sale at their Ipswich depot. From the outset the company were very helpful and courteous in all matters involved in the transaction, which as is often the case not always straightforward in my case the boat was not registered and was in the Gibraltar.

Burton Waters staff were most helpful in resolving the various problems with the end result that at the end of October 2010 I was the proud owner of the Broom 530, the boat was handed over in immaculate condition as promised and the minor problems I encountered as a result of the boat not being used for some time were dealt with immediately and to my complete satisfaction.” L Granger, York
