About Us


Born in 1989, and based in Sheffield, Northern Powerboats is run by husband and wife team, Keith and Angela.

Having been official dealers for Bayliner since 1993, their portfolio is complemented by major brands such as Mercury inflatable Boats,Sunsport inflatable boats, Mercruiser, Mercury and Mariner engines.

Selling new and used boats, with over 30 boats available on site at any time, you really won’t meet a nicer bunch to buy a boat from!

Northern Powerboats is like top notch computer software, what you see is exactly what you get! The dealership is crammed with sports boats, engines and associated clobber. It’s just like a new car showroom. Everything on show is clean and ready to be sold, there’s no dirty hulls and tatty boats here.

Keith is a typical Yorkshireman, plain talking and always ready to do a deal. Regardless of whether you’re after a new boat, engine or a used rig, if there isn’t one in stock he’ll find you one. However, with the choice of new and used Bayliners and other American and English boats, plus Mercruiser inboards and Mariner, Mercury and Tohatsu outboards it’s more than likely he can fix you up on the spot.

There’s a fully equipped workshop and the dealership has been a Mercruiser service dealers for over 25 years, as well as for Mariner and Mercury outboards. Having found a boat you can gear yourself up with trendy clobber, Water Skis and accessories or enjoy yourself looking through the chandlery. Here is a “one stop” boat centre, if you can’t get it here then you don’t need it. This is a real dealer who’ll take you out to a nearby lake to show you how to use your new boat, organise finance and take anything from another boat to a motorbike in part exchange.

A visit to Northern Powerboats is a worthwhile experience, even if you just come to look you’ll come away with something, and you’ll come again, everyone does.


Keith introduced me to boating and after several visits to his showroom, he took me to Lake Windermere and arranged a sea trial on a new Bayliner Cuddy which I brought and sailed for a good 4 years trouble free.

Whenever I need spares or accessories, I always call Keith first, if he cant help then he always knows a man who can!

We have just bought our first boat, a Fletcher 19 GTS, from Northern Power Boats. We cannot speak highly enough of Keith the owner. From the initial viewing of the boat to the “lessons” on the water, he was really helpful. What you see is what you get!

His knowledge and expertise of all things boating is second to none. We would not hesitate to deal with Northern Power boats again in the future.

We recently purchased a New Bayliner 160 from PowerboatsRus T/as Northern Powerboats in Sheffield.
We were looked after extremely well by Keith Saynor the owner of the company. This was a large purchase for ourselves which Keith appreciated and acted in guiding us rather than giving us the hard sell. One instance of this, from many, was the research he carried out in ascertaining what the towing weight is and if our current vehicle would be …capable of towing the set up.
Throughout the whole buying process from our initial visiting of the showroom in Sheffield to see the boat, right through to hand over, Keith made the purchase as relaxed as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. Even on the evening of the day we collected the boat to bring it home, we were surprised that Keith phoned us to make sure we managed ok, not a case of ‘you have bought it now so it is not my problem !’ Although the purchase is complete we have been encouraged to keep in contact with Keith and his company as and when, whether it is for advice on the boat or just for a general chat, we also have an invite to call in for a coffee if we are in the area.
We would honestly have no problem with dealing with Northern Power boats in the future and genuinely appreciate all Keith has done for us throughout the whole purchase. Thank you!
