The Boat Retailers and Brokers Association (BRBA) represents all companies and individuals involved in the sale of new and second-hand craft. It encourages the training and development of individuals working in this field and aims to identify, debate and resolve the specific issues affecting the boat retail and brokerage sector.
Ancasta is proud to be a member of the BRBA. Other members include over 150 marine businesses, including boat brokers and retailers, all of whom must adhere to the BRBA Code of Practice. The code is enforced to heighten consumer confidence by providing a set of comprehensive regulations for brokers and retailers.
Alongside the Code of Practice, the Boat Buyer's Guide provides buyers with a list of considerations to take into account before committing to a boat purchase. Factors include the operation of a designated client account, RCD compliance and finance arrangements. The Code of Practice and the Boat Buyer’s Guide aim to make boat purchases seamless and risk free. Access to both documents can be found below.
"At last I have found someone who speaks English and can provide Spare Parts for my Lagoon 410 in Turkey. Sorry there are some silly little bits on the list but I am grateful you can supply them as well as the bigger items."
Many thanks, Geoff (Turkey)
"Many thanks for your email, what a relief to find such a useful service - I was dreading sourcing the bits for my Oceanis 50! I will now forward all the information you have provided to my surveyor. I guess it will be worthwhile replacing all of the bushing/bearings, and to know these can be sent to the Greek mainland within 10days is very comforting."
Best wishes, Mr W (UK)
"Thank you so much for your help in supplying the transom rubber for the Antares 980. Looks great and very blue!"

"Hi, I am taking a few moments to compliment one of your staff. I have recently been dealing with your lady in Parts, to source an obscure but vital internal rigging component on my 2000 Beneteau 31.7. Paula is obviously knowledgeable, patient and efficient, a credit to you company. Well done and thanks."
Regards, Mr H (Falmouth)
"How kind of you to reply so promptly, I am just taking a minute or two to get some advice regarding the existing lifting keel mechanism for my Oceanis 311 which I fear is beyond repair and also to ensure that I order all the parts required as some of the accompanying furniture of the in place system is also part worn. I will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your prompt and efficient handling of this matter"
Best regards, Nigel
