Stevenson v Rogers [1999] 1 All ER 613 Court of Appeal

The defendant was a fisherman. He sold his fishing boat to the claimant. The claimant brought an action against the defendant based on breach of S.14 of the Sale of Goods Act as the boat was not of satisfactory quality. S.14 only applies to the sale of goods sold in the course of a business. The defendant argued that the sale of the boat was not in the course of his business. His business was catching fish and selling them, he was not in the business of buying and selling fishing boats.

Held:

The sale was in the course of the business and therefore the defendant did have to ensure the boat was of satisfactory quality.
