Why now could be a good time to trade up your boat
If last week’s Southampton Boat Show signalled a strong pick-up in the new and used yacht market, Irish brokerages like MGM Boats are reporting that, against the seasonal trend, business now is brisker than it was during the peak summer months. Winkie Nixon considers why this may be an optimium time to trade-in and trade-up, as he runs the rule over the very epitome of a “sensible” boat that’s up for grabs in Kinsale.
Meanwhile, the Coast Guard pulls the plug on Greystones station, North Shannon Regatta looks set to be a big draw for Water Wags (but, unlike in 1903, they won’t be horse-drawn), Colman Grimes reports on a blustery GP14 Autumn Open that featured a surprise farewell party, LÉ James Joyce returns home having rescued 2,500 migrants, and Ballycotton lifeboat launches to stranded dolphin.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
