#afloatboatsforsale – As the Euro continues its dip, UK boat buyers can eye the Irish boat market as if it's staging a giant 15 percent off sale!

There's bargains for our neighbours and Afloat's bustling boats for sale with 400 boats for sale shows the very latest in this value, right at the start of the 2015 boating season!

With the European economy slogging along at a near standstill, the euro has slid to a nine year low offering boat bargains to UK consumers and anyone else paying in sterling.

The outlook for the euro against the pound sterling has improved slightly but at GBP/EUR 1.3888 it's hard to see when this might change. 

In the meantime, potential UK buyers might want be tempted by these latest boat bargains. For example a Cork harbour based motor–sailer with a ketch rig at €56,000 has just come on the popular sailing cruisers section of Afloat boats for sale. The Rogger 36 is one of the last boats out of Stargate Marine and has been in present ownership since 1988.  A 1991 Cornish Shrimper, a lifting keel gaff rigged sail boat, based in Waterford has also just been added at €14,000. A Dundalk based 1989 Dufour 39, a modern classic from the drawing board of German Frers, is on the market for €47,500. Click for 400 more boats for sale in Ireland.
