I actually have always insured my boats through Navigator and General and while I was waiting on them to respond back, I clicked on your Boatshed Insurance Link. Upshot is they were as impressive as you and I ended up using them instead. Fast and efficient service. Overall out of all the boats over the years I’ve bought this by far has been the least problematic so I can’t praise you or Boatshed enough for handling all this.

Thank you for dealing with this proposed purchase in such a professional and friendly manner. Will always be happy to recommend you.

Stephen | Boatshed Brighton

It was my husband who chose boatshed, he hoped to find an English boat ( Broom )lover. I am absolutely going to recommend Boatshed and of course you, thanks again for everything. With all the best

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.

Thanks for all your help in the sale of our Hunter Ranger 265 – things seemed to start moving when you took over. I always felt I knew exactly what was happening from the way you provided updates etc and I really appreciated your advice on level of pricing to push forward the sales process which saw positive enquiries and viewings begin to happen. I felt a lot of confidence in the whole process because of the professional and knowledgeable manner in which you handled the sale.

George | Boatshed Brighton

Following the recent sale I found boatshed very professional well up on all needed information with very frequent updates and very quick to return calls etc Would not hesitate to use them again in the future

S Dunn | Boatshed

We would also like to express our gratitude for all of your efforts and cooperation. Again, thanks for this.

Jens Ebbinghaus | Boatshed

We can not say enough about the help you have given us with sorting out the boat and subsequent repairs and helping us to achieve a good deal on the purchase. A better and more helpful and professional job would be virtually impossible to find. Thanks

Pat & Ian | Boatshed

Dear Steve, Many thanks for the excellent cooperation between you and my lawyer.

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.

Mr & Mrs Paul Tooley, Hertford, Hertforshire | Boatshed Grand Union

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.

I and my wife Julia, would like to pass on our thanks on to Keith for making the purchase of our first boat, Volare, an absolute pleasure. Keith arranged everything from the first viewing to completion of the sale, including transportation from Gt Yarmouth to Windsor. We were unable to be present to take delivery of Volare after completion, so after he arranged for the hauliers to pick up the boat, Keith was also on hand to ensure she was lifted onto the transport at Gt Yarmouth and sent safely on her way to us. We are still in touch with Keith (Boatshed Norfolk) who is always available to answer any questions which have cropped up since we took delivery of her last Month. If Keith is the yardstick for the rest of your brokers then I would recommend anyone thinking of buying a boat to use Boatshed. Kind regards

Mark & Julia Davies | Boatshed

I was not expecting to sell my boat so quickly and at a great price. The Boatshed broker was present at every stage of the process and took a close interest, keeping me fully informed. Your knowledge, expertise and involvement brought about a speedy conclusion.

Chris Hillaby | Boatshed

By the way, Hats off to you for the superb photography! I'd have to admit that Boatshed has become the est online boat search web experience bar none. Fantastic improvement! Cheers! Regards

Peter Hurwood | Boatshed

You were always there to answer all our questions, no matter how silly they may have sounded, and most of all, you was NOT pushy to make the sale, which we found fantastic. Thank you John, for everything, we are so pleased with our new boat. Yours sincerely

Mrs L Robinson | Boatshed

Dean | Boatshed Hamble

Many thanks to BoatShed for a very efficient operation in selling the Seaforth and especially yourself in providing a pleasant and friendly service. We will take every opportunity in recommending BoatShed to any of our friends who may wish to buy or sell a boat. Kind regards

Alan | Boatshed

After wasting over a year and then all summer with other boat yards and advertising ourselves to try to sell we did not expect the level of sales and service that we received when we handed our sports cruiser over to the Boatshed Bristol based at Portishead to sell for us in the winter missing the season and thinking it would just sit there at least until next summer. They actively compared the market with other boats to find it's true value and actually sold our boat for us within a couple of months for a fair price, two days before Xmas day and then contacted us and paid us our money immediately. What a nice Xmas present and what a great service.

Phil | Boatshed Bristol

Highly recommend Boatshed to all

Phil | Boatshed
