I first came across Simone when looking for a medium cruiser for a family of four. I found the boat I was after on your website and got in touch with her that day. She arranged a viewing that day and we were blown away by her knowledge and clear care for the vessel she was selling. Having undertaken this process before with another buyer, I was prepared to go through the tedious process of bid and counter bid to try and arrive at a price that was suitable for both of us. But Simone was so honest and so clear, that I just told her what my 'honest' budget was. The following week Simone was in constant contact, telling me what forms I needed to get in, and what needed to be done administratively. It struck me that in an age when ‘every man is out for himself’ and genuine sales quality seems on the decline (and yes, I have been on the wrong end of that too) Simone stands as a beacon of decency and genuine customer care and satisfaction. She is not only a credit to your company, but to herself and indeed all the true boaters out there who have their name too often sullied by the minority. Boating for me has always been about helping each other out when we need it, and never doing disadvantage to another,treating one as one would like to be treated. Those two rules have stood me in good stead; she exemplifies them and has single handedly revived my faith. She is a credit to the boating world, Boatshed UK and herself.

Hi Simone (Boatshed Thames), Have just returned from a short holiday and would like to say Thank You for the professional and efficient way you handled the sale of Holly once I had fixed on the right price.

Dear Sirs, We have just purchased our first narrowboat from Mr Phil Bassett (Grand Union) and felt we had to send you our feedback. From our initial inquiry Phil was courteous, informative and quick to respond to making our first viewing appointment. We had two viewings in total and I cannot praise Phil enough for his salesmanship. He took every question we had seriously, following up each inquiry quickly, sometimes having to liaise with the owner. He obviously has a good professional working relationship with the marina that the boat is moored at which made our purchase even easier with any further questions. We originally had a one twelfth share in a narrow boat for four years in total but always knew we would purchase our own, visiting a number of brokers within a radius of about 80 miles. Initial response from many was flimsy with hardly any followup and the quality of the boats at times was questionable for the price and we had doubts as to whether offers were in fact relayed to the owner! How refreshing to find Phil at Boatshed Grand Union who instilled confidence in us and made our buying experience so pleasurable, a feather in your cap.

"We Found our boat using the Boatshed Hayling Island site, lots of detailed pics and plenty of useful information. Met with Dave the Broker and viewed the boat, he was very helpful and informative. We then went ahead and bought the boat last week. We Found the whole Boatshed experience very straightforward indeed, highly recommended"

Mrs D Wye | Boatshed Hayling Island

Dear Sam, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and Lyse for another swift and hassle free sale. This is the second boat we have sold through Boatshed.com and eight years on from the last sale we made the right choice again to list and sell through you. You and your team are true professionals and make what can be a very complex and stressful process very straightforward. After now doing this twice I cannot imagine why anyone would buy and sell a boat without Boasted.com taking the helm.

Best regards Steve and Chris | Boatshed Portsmouth

Impressive communications from Boatshed! Thank you. Keep up the good work :)

Very pleased with the help Sam gave me throughout the sale process of our Westerly Oceanquest. She was proactive in recommending suppliers to repair things to make the boat as presentable as possible, providing good recommendations at all times, and the whole administrative process was smooth throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Boatshed Portsmouth to any prospective seller.

Thanks again! | Boatshed Portsmouth

Your website is just perfect. Lots of very detailed excellent pictures, panorama pics, videos inside outside....If every broker were like you, the world would be a better place...:)

Will, January 2018 | Boatshed Brighton

All good thanks for your help, tips and contacts.

David, January 2017 | Boatshed Brighton

Just a little thank you to say how pleased I am with my purchase of My Contessa 28, I was very impressed with your service from the start, escorting me down in the rain and strong winds to see it in the first instance and your help and support up to completion just a few days from Christmas Day. Your service was exceptional considering my purchase was for a minimal amount of money. I couldn’t have been more impressed if I was Buying a multi Million Pound super yacht. Boatshed should be very proud of you.

Many thanks again and good luck for the future | Boatshed Portsmouth

A big thank you to you and your team.

David, December 2017 | Boatshed Brighton

"I was extremely pleased with the service I recieved from Boatshed.com in Gosport selling my Contessa 28. Both Alan and Sam gave me excellent support in the process and were always available for discussion and advice when necessary. When it came to final sale and completion Sam was extremely proficient and managed the process, the purchaser , and me as vendor, very smoothly keeping me well informed. I hoped to sell before Christmas and Sam achieved that for me."

Thanks | Boatshed Portsmouth

"Many thanks to Sam for a friendly and efficient service. We will definitely use Boatshed again".

Kind regards, Boris Kremer | Boatshed Portsmouth
