Upcoming Auctions and Sales Events 

The Thames Classic Boat Online Web Auctions

Date: Auction no 1  opens Friday 29th September for 2 Weeks
Date: Auction no 2 opens Friday 20th October for 2 Weeks 

We have seen an increasing demand for a better way to buy and sell classic boats, throughout the year from buyers and sellers alike.

Online or web based auctions are fast becoming a recognised way to buy valuable and highly desirable valuable items which allows smaller more focussed collections to be put together around specific themes and offer the ability to reach a much wider geographic audience and the convenience of running regular auctions on line throughout the year.

We offer full marketing of your boat online, through social media and also to our extensive network of potential buyers to gather interest running up to the auction, and we aim to be the leading on-line destination for classic boat auctions.

Our two week trail period for all buyers offer the reassurance you can buy in confidence as you have the option to return the boat if not satisfied with your purchase.
