Enda o'Coineen from Galway arrived in Sables d'Olonne on his open 60 Le Souffle de Nord Team Ireland, non stop from New Zealand after his Vendéeboat was dismasted 300km south of New Zealand during the Vendée Globe.

The April auction is busier than ever with over 75 boats on offer.
Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Program is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
