Boatshed Expands to Grenada in the Carribean
As one of the world’s largest yacht brokerage groups, Boatshed is expanding its presence to the southern Caribbean island of Grenada. By combining an online sales platform with traditional yacht brokers in more than 60 offices worldwide, Boatshed’s new location is with Island Dreams.
Island Dreams is a yacht maintenance, sales, and management company based at Port Louis Marina in St. George’s. They also have a satellite office at Clarkes Court Boatyard on the south side of the island in Woburn.
“Grenada has become more attractive as a location for buying a boat as the range of marine services here has increased,” says Anita Sutton, who with husband Mark has owned and operated Island Dreams since 2003.
“We now have three boatyards in Grenada, so there is a nearby yard to haul a boat being surveyed. With Clarkes Court Boatyard, Grenada can now haul much bigger boats. There are two Grenada-based marine surveyors with others on neighboring islands. There are some new services, such as life raft servicing, that have opened in the last year,” she says. “We will soon be adding virtual reality images to our Boatshed Grenada listings so a purchaser can make a more informed decision about a boat they may be interested in.
We have a real variety of boats in Grenada, and I am loving the variety of boats listing with us, from Caribbean classic to family cruisers to vessels ready for a blue water adventure.” Boatshed also has Caribbean locations in St. Vincent, St. Lucia and the British Virgin Islands.
