Rugby Boat Sales is the premier high quality brokerage service. Whilst we subscribe to to the time honoured values of friendly and comprehensive customer service we also take a thoroughly modern approach to marketing in this internet driven age.

Originally started by Dominic Miles, a boat owner for 30 years and a long standing contributor to waterways magazines, Rugby Boat Sales has become established as one of the best brokerage services on the inland waterways. Dominic retired from the business in October 2016 and James and Claire Millsop, who having lived aboard for nearly seven years, acquired the business - continuing to run it with the same philosophy and professionalism as before.

The business now operates from a premises on the Grand Union at Stowe Hill, Weedon, and also has brokerage arrangements with Blisworth Marina on the Grand Union in Northants, Bugbrooke Marina on the GU in Northants and Lechlade Marina on the Upper Thames

The company is a member of the BRBA, the brokerage arm of the British Marine Federation, and as such we operate under their Code of Conduct which includes a proper protected client account for customers funds.

We provide proper paperwork for each sale and ensure that any boat being sold has the RCD certification in place, where applicable.

We produce high quality photography using professional Nikon equipment, not just a snapshot camera or worse, a mobile phone.

Our brochures are available to everyone in a format designed to work on all home printers without the need to fill out off putting web registration forms to obtain them. They are noted for focussing on the important detail in a concise and easy-to-read style and are not padded out with irrelevant waffle about curtain colours or the serial number of the fridge.

Our advice pages are extensive and are based on direct experience and boating knowledge. Most of our staff are boat owners so our love of boats is genuine and first hand.
