About Edward Kay

"My worst day at sea is better than my best day on land."

Having had a successful career in the City, formerly with Merrill Lynch and latterly being self employed, I decided to combine my passions of boating and the South of France and buy the licence for

The South of France is a place in which I've been holidaying and boating since I was born. I'm a keen sailor of both sailing and motor boats and currently run a 1985 Monte Carlo Offshorer 30.

From St Tropez to the Illes de Lerins, from Antibes to Monaco, and the quaint little coves and restaurants in Cap Ferrat and Villefranche, you could boat for weeks on the French Riviera and never go to the same place twice! The South of France is a boaters paradise - the food, wine and weather aren't too bad either!

Our aim at is simple. It's to assist people in selling their boat to the widest possible audience. And with 1,000,000 registered active users on our website and over 70 offices worldwide, we certainly achieve that. Boatshed sells over 1,000 boats annually and according to independent statistics, we do it twice as fast as most brokers.

It's a totally "no win no fee" system. A professional friendly broker will photograph and video your boat and walk you through the listing process. We'll accompany all prospective buyers to see the boat and take them through surveys and sea trials hopefully concluding in a sale. We'll handle all of the paperwork too.

If you're looking to buy or sell a boat or just want to chat about the process and get a valuation, please don't hesitate to contact us.
