Boat Swop/Share

The “Boat Swop/Share” facility allows you to offer your boat in exchange for another. The only requirement is that the vessel either offered or requested must be a Westerly – or both. You may ask for, or offer money as well as the vessel in exchange; in other words you can ask to trade up or down. This is also the place to offer or request a share in a Westerly (syndicates). Otherwise, all WOA requirements remain the same.


Your ad should include a description, together with your name and contact details, and a price where appropriate – Please do not use all capitals. Please specify the Classified category you wish to advertise in:

Craft for Sale
Equipment for Sale
Craft & Equipment Wanted
Boat Share / Swop
Crew – Wanted/Available

Images should be your own. Do not use images from brokers websites as these will be copyrighted.

If you need help you can send your copy to and we will place your text and photo’s.
