The world of nautical words is demystified with info-gram style clips in a new YouTube Channel introduced by Boats.co.uk, the UK’s leading boat sales company. Created especially to help those new to boating to navigate their way round the forest of boating terminology, the first videos go live on Friday 10th April.
Boats.co.uk will roll out fresh new videos every week and the series will build over the coming year into a comprehensive library of boating knowledge and ‘How To Guides’ for all to access.
James Barke is excited about the company’s latest offering to customers and commented: “We have long been aware of the amount of boating jargon we use on a daily basis. When selling boats to people new to boating we endeavour to translate commonly used nautical terms into layman’s language to make the buyer feel comfortable. These videos give everyone the opportunity to find out about the terminology for themselves.”
James continued: “We have been in operation for over 45 years and during that time we have sold over 7,000 boats. Our business is all about launching dreams and we are committed to passing on our years of knowledge and experience to grow the boating fraternity. Everyone who works at Boats.co.uk is passionate about boats and determined to break down as many barriers to entry into the boating lifestyle.”
The company hopes that by sharing basic boating knowledge people will feel more comfortable about entering the world of boats. The videos, which include ‘Boat papers explained’, ‘How to remember port and starboard’ and ‘Where is the exact waterline on my boat?’, are available to view at https://www.youtube.com/c/boatscouk and people can subscribe to receive each new video as it is uploaded.
This recent move confirms the company’s commitment to growing boating as a leisure pursuit and re-affirms its position as the UK’s number one sales centre for new and used, sail, power and sports boats.
