Graham WharmbyBroker, Boatshed Bourgogne, France

Boatshed’s sales network and well-known branding sit alongside my established marine services business. The two brands integrate very well together with Boatshed enabling me to offer additional services to my customers at an affordable price. This has proved a cost effective way to successfully expand my business into used boat sales
