NORFOLK YACHT AGENCY
In 50 years we have built an envied reputation for our total boat buying and selling package. We have extensive knowledge of all aspects of buying, owning and selling a boat. Our consistently high standards of integrity and professionalism make us the first choice of many.
We normally have over 100 boats for sale on site. Our sales teams are available 7 days a week to guide you through the choice, offer advice and help arrange your purchase.
All new boats are sold under manufacturer's warranty. Our company-owned stock boats are offered with a range of warranties. We can also organise an independent survey for any used boat.
We offer a part exchange facility on all our boats. We can also put you in touch with reputable and knowledgeable providers of finance and insurance.
We have a qualified and well respected RYA instructor available for a wide range of tuition. See our training page for more information. Successful completion of a training course is increasingly a requirement for insurance and for boating on European waterways.
Our after sales back up is second to none. Our service centre at Brundall has full facilities for lift out, service, repairs and preparation of your new boat.
All of our sales crew, valeters and service centre engineers are professionally qualified to handle the boats we buy, sell and service. The majority of our team hold helmsman’s qualifications, ranging from power boat level 2 to RYA day skipper and several members of the crew are yachtmasters.
Every member of our team is passionate about boating; many own boats and some have been in the boating world for generations. We will happily discuss any aspect of boat ownership with you.
We want you to find the perfect boat to suit your needs. At Norfolk Yacht Agency we provide the right service to help you get the most out of your boating. Please call us on 01603 713434
