Launching your boat onto the market for the first time is the most important part of getting it sold in good time. Using high quality photography, including drone imagery and walkthrough videos your boat will stand out from the crowd as well as getting exposure on all the major online boat marketplaces.

Equally as important is the initial asking price. We have over 90 years combined brokerage experience in the team and we will make sure you are given the right price to market your boat at. We are proud of our approach whereby we don’t just tell owners what they want to hear in order to win the listing – we will give you honest and accurate advice that ensures you get your boat SOLD.




We are able to offer you free storage at both of our UK offices. Your boat will be displayed ashore at a prime marina location making it easy and convenient for prospective purchasers to view. Many of our customers are “walk ins” and having your boat on site means we can accommodate lots of impromptu viewings. Get in touch to find out more about our free storage offers.

We can buy your boat from you at a competitive trade rate

Although we are better known for our brokerage services, on occasion we may also consider purchasing your boat from you. As our business is self-financing, we are typically more generous than other trade buyers. If you plan to sell a modern yacht or motorboat, it’s always worth checking what we could offer before accepting another bid.

Our trade rates are particularly competitive on UK cruising yachts under 20 years old and between 30-45ft long.

I have just sold my sailing boat through C&C and the service was excellent as was their advice...The pricing after full discussion was realistic and the online coverage comprehensive. The selling process was such that it offered security for both vendor and purchaser and proceeded without a hitch although help was always only a phone call away were it needed. There is no doubt that the choice of C&C as brokers was the right one for me and on that basis I heartily recommend them to others.

The Clarke and Carter office at Suffolk Yacht Harbour have just sold my yacht. At all times they have been very helpful and talked me through the entire process. As the buyer is taking the yacht away by land they are also helping him organise transport plus getting the mast removed. All in all an excellent service with very prompt payment once the funds were received from the buyer.
Very professional and honest brokers who dealt with my purchase. The communication was good and they are pleasure to do business with.

Steve, Charles and the rest of the team at Clarke & Carter, Suffolk Yacht Harbour have supported us from the days of dreamy eyed prospective purchasers trying to figure out which yacht to buy, to proud boat owners. From a Jeanneau 349 test sail, through spares support and most recently a sale. Throughout, we have really appreciated their straight forward manner and approach. Thanks so much.

I have recently sold my boat with Clarke and Carter at Levington. They are an experienced professional team who gave clear practical advice on how to present the boat for sale. A buyer was found within the month and they conducted negotiations to reach a price that I found satisfactory. I was grateful for a successful sale!

I sold my Southerly through Clarke and Carter and it was a good experience. Clarke and Carter are held in high regard in my yacht club and I was encouraged to use their services. Charles Vinten and Steve Carter handled my sale and I was pleased by their straightforward business-like style. Good people to deal with.
