Our offices are temporarily closed due to Covid-19

But we are still able to help you plan your boating future during lockdown!


By order of the UK Government all non-essential retail businesses are now required to be closed by law. Our offices will be shut until further notice, however, members of our team will still be working remotely to provide help and advice.

If you are looking to buy or sell a boat please get in touch and we will be happy to help you plan your boating future. However, it will not be possible to view any boats during this period. We would like to ask you all to respect and follow the rules of non-essential travel and stay at home unless entirely necessary. Please do not visit our offices to look around the boats for sale ashore. If you currently have a boat and are worried about its safety, please contact the marina, yard or club where it is lying, it may be possible for someone onsite to check it for you instead.

In preparation, we have taken video tours of as many of our boats for sale as we could within the time available. Please contact us if you would like a video tour of a boat you are interested in. We also have high-resolution images for the majority of our listings which we can send by Wetransfer.com, a great FREE service for transferring large files!

We have also introduced extended contracts, so buyers can reserve a boat (if the vendor agrees) on the basis they will proceed at the earliest safe opportunity. Sea trials may not be possible within a realistic timeframe, but most sales will be able to proceed based on surveys and mechanical inspections as soon as we re-open and access is allowed.

Finally, the team at Clarke and Carter would like to wish you all good health and thank you for your continued support both now and across the years.
