This Boat is no longer lonely

Natant 24 For Sale

The Natant 24 has now sold. We had a number of people interested and the boat sold within a week of being posted. Her former owner was extremely happy with the Lonely Boats process.

He sent us this message after the boat being listed for 5 days, “Well we’ve taken a deposit on the boat sale, expecting the rest tomorrow.  If not, starting all over again. I know we priced to sell, but nonetheless your service in the sale was outstanding and did what I couldn’t do, and nor, frankly, a brokerage I was with before.”
The following day we receieved this message, “All sold and paid for. The Natant can come off the system now. Great job, if the first one didn’t want it, there were 4 in the wings ready to jump in. Priced to sell….and it did despite being a slack market and wrong time of year”.


Former Advert Information

We have been asked to share this Natant 24 motor cruiser for sale. She’s currently moored at Hythe Marina and looks to be a really well looked after boat. The owner has provided us with this detailed write up and inventory (Below). If you’re interested in making an offer please fill in the form at the bottom of the page and the owner will contact you. The reason for the sale is the owner wants to step away from boating and not pay to store a boat that might get little use next year. All serious offers considered around the asking price of £6,000.
