Selling your Boat

Please let us know when you put your boat up for sale. The easiest way to do this is via the Contact page on MYC Xtra. Contact Mooring Administration or Boat Park Administration, depending on whether your boat is afloat or ashore. We will then circulate your e-mail to all the relevant club officers. Alternatively, you can speak to the Bosun or Boat Park Chairman as appropriate. If you can keep us informed of the sale's progress it will help us to accommodate your future plans as best we can.

If your boat is afloat when sold:
  • Contact Mooring Administration or the Bosun to let them know the transaction has taken place and whether you wish to retain a mooring at MYC. You can do this by e-mailing Moorings Administration or by speaking to the Bosun.
  • If you are buying another boat it may be that your current mooring is unsuitable, in which case you will need to apply for a new one.
  • If the buyer is not an MYC member (and doesn't wish to join), he/she will probably take the boat away immediately. If this is not the case, please contact the Bosun to make alternative arrangements.
If your boat is in the yard when sold:
  • Notify Boat Park Administration or the Chairman as soon as the transaction has taken place and supply contact details for the new owner. You can do this by e-mailing Boat Park Administration or by speaking to the Boat Park Chairman.
  • If the purchaser is not a club member we will contact him/her to discuss requirements and launch plans. The new owner may want to spend some time getting the boat ready for launch. To facilitate this we will make them a club "temporary member". This involves a small charge to cover use of club facilities for a limited period, provision of a club key, and full cover by club insurances; except of course cover of the boat they've just purchased which remains for them to do. A refund will be made on return of the club key.
  • The Boat Park Committee will try to accommodate the new owners launch plans wherever possible. Although there is no launch fee as such, removing the boat from the yard may involve an extra payment if it is difficult to move at the required time, or involves loading onto a road trailer. We will be happy to discuss launch plans with the new owner. Any extra charges will be in keeping with our status as a yacht club i.e. not commercial rates.
Most of us will buy or sell a boat at some point. Help us to help you minimise the stress!
