At the moment the Boatshed group is undergoing a structured programme of growth and franchise expansion. This is in response to the increased globalisation of our business and our customers requiring our services in more and more locations throughout the UK and internationally - in both traditional and newer boating markets. It is undoubtedly the case that the strengthening economy and improving marine sales environment are ideal foundations for Boatshed growth.
