During the Southampton Boat Show, Boatshed ran a competition to win a RED Paddle Company 10'6 inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard.

To enter the competition you needed to correctly enter five multiple choice questions, here they are with the correct answers:

  • How many photographs are included with Boatshed listings? Unlimited plus video
  • How many boat buyers are registered with Boatshed? 700,000+
  • What is the name of Boatshed’s online auction site? BoatBid.com
  • What size paddle board can you win? 10.6
  • What kind of workout do you get from a paddle boarding session? Full body workout

We have thousands of entries and the lucky winner was Bernadette Storey from the Isle of Wight.

Corinne Gillard, Yacht Broker from Boatshed Isle of Wight, and Fiona Taylor from Boatshed HQ met Bernadette and husband Richard at Island Harbour on the Isle of Wight, UK to present the prize and find out a little more about our prize winner -

Bernadette is a retired Barrister. She came with her husband Richard to pick up the prize, a 10' 6" Red Paddle Co board, the most popular inflatable paddle board in the world!

Have you ever tried paddleboarding?

I was offered a go in the summer but didn't that time. No excuses now!

Where are you going to use your new paddleboard?

The Solent is literally 40m from our house so that is easy. Richard adds that as Bernadette intends to add paddleboarding to her exercise routine he will probably have to go and buy his own!

What bought you on to the Boatshed stand?

I was looking to sell my boat, a Hunter Legend 326.

Have you won anything before?

No, I don't think we have!

You are selling your boat with Boatshed, how have you found your experience with Boatshed?

So far everything has gone extremely well. We had a full asking price offer within a week of listing and following on from survey we are completing in a weeks time. Really didn't expect things to happen that quickly

Have you ever bought or sold a boat through Boatshed before?

This is the first time we have used Boatshed however we have heard of them before

Would you recommend Boatshed?

Definitely, based upon our experience we would highly recommend you

Are you going to buy another boat Bernadette?

Yes. I have decided that I want a RIB and have narrowed down a shortlist so am still looking. Richard is looking for another sailing boat

Well done Bernadette, we hope your enjoy many years of paddle boarding and the health benefits that accompany paddle boarding!

With thanks to our friends at Red Paddle Co for organising such a fabulous prize.
