  • Essex Boatyards Ltd image Essex Boatyards Ltd is a family-owned business with nearly 30 years’ experience in boat sales and repairs. From the outset, we’ve been committed to the highest standards of customer service for the boating community. Quality, professionalism and value has made Essex Boatyards the UK’s number one boat sales centre, and a firm favourite with loyal customers throughout the country.

    The company has grown steadily since its formation by Dave Barke Senior in 1978. James, Nick and Guy Barke joined the business in 1991, taking the company from a yard that sold just small 14ft sports boats to a fully-equipped sales and service centre offering a massive choice up to 55ft motor yachts. Dave Barke Jr heads up the engineers, completing the family team.

    Everything for buyers and sellers
    Essex Boatyards has been selling boats since 1976. From our new 12 acre Essex Marina site we are able to provide buyers and sellers with the best possible service, before and after a sale. We continue to invest in the latest handling and site equipment, including a 70t hoist, a 30t hoist and new 2.5t forklifts to improve efficiency, speed and turnaround even further.

    Friendly professional advice
    We pride ourselves on providing our customers with a friendly and efficient service in all aspects of boating. You’ll be dealing with professionals in sales, finance and service who really understand boats and the boating community. Together, they can help you with any query and ensure you get the boat, the deal and the service that’s best for you.
