Buying a UK Boat Yard: The Basics

Buying a boatyard can be a dream come true for any aspiring entrepreneur with a love of all things nautical. Before you purchase a boatyard, you need to think carefully about your own skill level, the kind of services you hope to offer from the boat yard premises, and the appetite for that service in the local area.

When you buy a boat yard business as a going concern, you buy a business that is fully operational and is already taking money. This can be beneficial in many ways, but if you want to take the business in a certain direction, you need to ensure that the boat yard is appropriate for the usage you have planned, and that you will have a suitable local customer base. For instance, you might be more interested in the pleasure craft side of the business, but if your business is located close to a centre of maritime industry, then commercial vessels will make up the majority of your earnings, and unless it’s a particularly scenic area or an established leisure area, there’s slim opportunity to build a business that derives the majority of its earnings from pleasure boats. Equally, if your interest lies in heavy-duty commercial boats, you might be able to buy and adapt a leisure-focused boat yard, but you need to ensure that the slipway, workshops and craning equipment are fit for purpose. 

When running a marine business, you need to ensure that all of the equipment is carefully maintained and compliant with HSE regulations and that your insurance is comprehensive and protects you against injury of guests or staff, as well as damage to any boats while on-site. Talk to the business seller about what’s required, and consult your local council if in any doubt.
