What can an independent berth broker do for me?

What can an independent berth broker do for me?

Whether you are looking to sell, buy, rent or sublet a marina berth then an independent broker can be invaluable to the process. Why should you engage their services rather than going it alone?

If you are a marina berth owner with a berth to sell or a berth to sublet

  • A well established berth broker will have a lists of clients who are actively looking for berths. Meaning your berth may get sold or sublet quicker.
  • Your independent berth broker knows the market. As with any other product, prices rise, they also fall. You can be sure of sound advice when it comes to putting a price tag on your marina berth.
  • A berth broker will have dealt with the complex nature of buying or subletting a marina berth before. They will know who to work with to ensure the process is as simple as it can be. This will help keep all parties happy and minimise any chance of stalling.
  • Independent berth brokers are few and far between. You will come across boat brokers and estate agents that broker berths. This will split their time between their main line of business and berth brokerage.
Our advice - If you want to sell a boat, go to a boat broker. If you want to sell a house go to an estate agent. If you want to sell a berth, go to a berth broker.

If you are a boat owner looking for a berth to buy or a berth to sublet or rent

  • Firstly, their independent advice won’t cost you a penny - but will be invaluable during your search. If looking for annual berthing, the prices quoted are the same rates as going to the marina directly.
  • They have current listings of berths that are for sale, rent or sublet. If none of those currently available fit your needs. They will search and offer you options. If nothing is suitable, they will keep your details on file so that you can be contacted if a suitable marina berth becomes available.
  • If you are looking for an annual berth an independent berth broker may have a sublet available at the same marina. Not a lot of people are aware that some marina berths are owned by individuals and not the marina group. By subletting one of these marina berths you are usually able to save VAT vs the cost of renting the berth directly from the marina.
  • Save yourself time and having to hear lots of sales pitches. A good independent berth broker will ask you questions to determine what kind of boater you are, and what you are looking for in a marina. They can then offer you options. Once you have decided on a marina, your berth broker will work with your chosen marina to complete any paperwork. You will usually pay the marina directly for the berth. It will be the same price as you would have got going direct.

Looking for an annual marina berth in Hamble? Then maybe we can help. 

Did you know that not all of the marina berths in Hamble are owned by the marina group? Back in the 1990's some berths at Hamble Point Marina, Port Hamble Marina and Mercury Yacht Harbour were sold to private individuals under long leases. These individuals are more commonly known as lease berth holders.
 
The leases on all 3 Hamble Marinas are valid until 2035. They allow the owner to berth their boat in their own HM land registered marina berth. If they don't wish to use the marina berth themselves, it is included in their lease berth contract that they can sublet the berth.
 
Since 1990 Triangle has an ongoing relationship with the owners of many of the lease berths in the 3 marinas in Hamble. When a lease berth holder wishes to sell their berth, or rent it out, many tend to do so through Triangle Berth Brokers.


What is the advantage of renting a sublet berth in Hamble?


The owner of the Hamble marina berth has certain obligations when they come to sublet their berth.

They cannot charge less than the published MDL marina rates for the cost of the berth. However as many of the Hamble berths are owned by individuals, the rental cost of the marina berth is not subject to VAT. Effectively meaning that to rent a berth in Hamble as a sublet rather than through the marina, you can save yourself circa 20%.


Are there any differences in the service I will recieve from the Hamble Marinas if I rent through Triangle? 


As you will be renting from the berth owner and not the marina there is one main difference. The MDL group offer 'Freedom Berthing' which allows it's annual berth holders to visit any other MDL marina free of charge. As a subletter you will be limited to 30 days per year of free nights at other MDL marinas. 

All of the other perks of being an MDL berth holder are the same. You will recieve a car parking permit, which allows you to park free of charge at most of the other MDL marinas. You will recieve discounts on boat lifts and also fuel at cost from MDL fuel stations. 


How can I find out whether you have a Hamble Marina berth suitable for my boat? 


So if you are looking for a marina berth to rent in Hamble, please get in touch with us and see whether we have a marina berth that is suitable for your boat. If we don't have anything suitable now, if you agree, we can keep your details on file and let you know when a suitable marina berth in Hamble becomes available.

Hamble Marina berths to rent

It's never just about the berth. Welcome to Torquay.


When you are looking at moving into a new marina berth, it's important not just to look closely at the marina, but what surrounds it.

This is where Triangle Berth Brokers can help. We try to match boat owners with a berth that is best for them. We understand that if you are planning to spend a lot of time tied up to your berth then you'll probably want more in the surrounding area than a boater who is planning to spend their time cruising.

We take the time to ask you the questions we need to help you moor up your boat in a marina that will be right for you.

Facts we found out about Torquay, Devon

  • Torquay’s original name was Torrequay, then it was Torkay, next it was Torkey, it then became known as Tor Quay, before finally joining the words together to make Torquay.
  • In 1927 the world's oldest jaw bone fragment was discovered in Kent's Cavern, Torquay. 
  • In 1948 the Summer Olympics watersports were held in Torquay.

Still renting your marina berth? 

Still renting your marina berth - there may be another option

Renewal notices are currently dropping onto boat owners doormats across the UK. You may decide that 2019 is a time for a change of scenery and thinking about what your options are, or like many of your fellow boat owners the only decision you'll be making is whether you'll pay early to save a few pounds on your renewal.

Did you know that in some marinas there is another choice?

In a select few marinas in the UK and across Europe; as well as being able to rent your marina berth annually, you can also buy berths.

At Triangle, we have been selling these lease berths for 28 years. We often have a list of people interested in purchasing them either for their own use or as investments.

From time to time we are instructed by owners of these berths to offer them for rent.  These work out to be an excellent deal for the renter as they save VAT vs paying for a regular marina berth.

If you take a look at this page on our website you will be able to see what is currently available to sub-let.

So whether you are looking to buy a lease berth or rent a marina berth, why not get in touch and let's see how we can help you.

Triangle are Europe’s leading berth brokerage. Since 1990 we have specialised in the sale and letting of marina berths in both independent and group operated marinas.

  • For Marinas or new developments, we are able to consult, advise and sell or rent marina berths on their behalf.

We hope to help you find the perfect location to berth your boat.

His roles have included being operations manager for Britannia Sailing and Sunsail in the UK and British Virgin Islands, and managing the Howth yacht club in Dublin. 

Marie has over twenty years’ experience in marketing and sales and met Nic when they worked together at Sunsail in the BVI. The couple now reside on the South Coast where until recently Nic was senior marina manager with MDL, responsible for three high profile marinas on the Hamble river. 

Nic said: “We are really excited by this new venture. We can offer a bespoke service to our customers who are looking to sell, purchase, rent or lease a berth. With our combined experience, knowledge and contacts in the marine industry, our service will be unrivalled and we are ready and looking forward to the challenge.”
