Fairline Squadron 65 Another winner at this year’s awards was the Squadron 65, which won in the flybridges over-55ft category. This elegant cruiser has incredible VIP accommodation, large glass windows, which create a viable fourth cabin, and a spacious flybridge so you can drive from up the top of the boat or just use the space to catch a few rays when you’re moored up in the marina.

buying SeCond-hand Buying brokerage boats can be a great idea if you want to get more boat for your money, or are just starting out and are maybe looking for something cheaper. However, don’t be fooled into thinking that you can snap up a bargain because of the recession. Sarah Matlock of Channel Islands Marine, which has a large brokerage division, says: “The recession has, to some extent, affected the prices of boats, with willing purchasers under the misapprehension that every vendor is a ‘distressed seller’. There are, in fact, few owners desperate to sell their boat and many would rather keep their boat and wait for the market to improve.”


additional CoStS Aside from the cost of refuelling your boat, the annual cost of berthing is also an important consideration, and as you would expect, the bigger the boat, the more you pay. In Elizabeth Marina in Jersey Harbour, the current annual fee is £291.77 per metre per year, while in Beaucette Marina in Guernsey it costs £468 per metre per year for boats over 45ft. You’ll also have to think about things such as servicing. As a general rule of thumb, the more you use your boat the more often it will need to be serviced – engines should be serviced every 50 hours.
