Have you ever:

• Vowed to some day be your own boss?
• Wished for a better work life balance?
• Wanted to work with really interesting people?

This may be the answer to changing your life in all the ways you’ve always wanted. Boatshed.com offers the opportunity to run your own business as a yacht broker and build your work around your life rather than have work rule your life.

With flexible options to get you started, you could be running your own Boatshed business sooner than you think. You will be dealing with lots of different and interesting people from the yacht owners who are selling their boats to friendly staff in the yards and marinas, and of course the great team at Boatshed, both at HQ in Gosport and across the globe in each Boatshed location.

Many people are drawn to the water and working by the sea and in the marine sector is a great way of life. Your work day will give you plenty of opportunity to be out in the fresh air around boatyards and waterways.

You don’t have to know all there is to know about boats to be successful at running your own Boatshed business. A love of all things watery, a willingness to learn, and the passion to run your own successful business are the most important things to bring with you.

You’ll receive full training directly from Neil and Mandy Chapman who started the company ten years ago, and will have the continued support that they offer plus input from all of the other Boatshed brokers worldwide. You might want to work on your own or with your partner, or build up your own team to work with you, the options are yours.

So now you know the lifestyle would suit you, what’s the sharp end like – can you make the money you‘d like running your own business? Simply, yes. Like any business you will reap the rewards of the work you put in. In 2009 the highest broker commission for a single boat sale was £20,000 and the most boats sold by a brokerage in one month was 20. Last year Boatshed businesses sold boats for values up to £500,000 and the total number of boat sales through Boatshed businesses in 2009 was 1066.

The market for used boats has remained strong through the current recession and running a Boatshed business offers great opportunity for you to use your business acumen and enthusiasm for your own business to create the life you would like.
