Get details of all the shares currently on offer
We've collected together basic details of all the shares currently available on five reliable websites,
put them in a standard format with links to the full details and put them in a table that you can filter and sort
to help you find the perfect share for you - find it here.
Using a compact representation of boat layouts unique to this site, you can also sort the boats by layout -
so, once you've decided on the layout that suits you, you can find all the boats which match your needs.
You can find detailed specifications of all the boats by using the links in the table (just click on the boat name or photo).
The details include photos and lots more information. Many of the boat details now also include videos or 'virtual walk-throughs'.
It may not be quite the same as getting on board and making contact with the real boat, but it does give you information about
every boat with shares on offer and is there 24/7 regardless of weather or Covid-19 restrictions.

The boatshare.co.uk site advertises shares for sale but is not a broker. The boat details for any shares listed there will
include vendor contact details, which you'll find near the end of the description of the boat.
