Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd.

Offering a personal service, whether you’re buying your first boat or next, Bates Wharf provides a day to remember! We pride ourselves on our high level of customer service with our four offices open seven days a week for your viewing pleasure. We look forward to welcoming you at Chertsey, Eastbourne, Southampton and Poole.


Bates Wharf offer the “complete boating service” whether you are buying, selling or servicing your boat.
We offer new and used boat sales, servicing & maintenance, valeting, transport and other services you would expect from a boat yard. Part exchanges are welcome against new and often against some used boats.
With four offices we are sure to have something for everyone.
You can take a virtual look around our Chertsey Head Office by clicking here.

We offer a demonstration on our listed pre-owned and brokerage boats where possible. Upon demonstration, we run through all the systems with you on-board to arrive at a basic snagging list. Once back in the office (refreshments offered and sitting comfortably), we run through any snags found on the demonstration and explain procedures to further the purchase and what to expect in terms of costs and responsibility so there are few surprises once the surveys are completed.
We also quantify the costs involved in relation to keeping your chosen boat on an annual basis with insurance, mooring, cleaning, servicing and maintenance.

So, in simple terms, our “Bates Wharf Way” includes:

  • Making you feel at home
  • Qualifying and quantifying your boating desires
  • Viewing and demonstrating boats
  • Viewing every key feature of each model viewed to make an informed choice
  • On demonstration, creating a basic snagging list where required
  • Advice on survey fees and procedure
  • Informative step by step assistance throughout surveys
  • Discuss the next steps for completion
  • Easy payment options – we accept Pounds, Euros & Dollars
  • Receiving full boat title and completion paperwork, complete with our welcome goodies!
  • Hand over, tuition & familiarisation
  • Full after sales service
  • Repeat business through your boating life…!
