It was quite a change for us, going from sailing yacht to motor cruiser after many years of sailing. Samantha representing Boatshed.com was helpful all the way, from introducing us to the vendors, arranging and keeping appointments on time, keeping in the background for viewing (when necessary), through to dealing with the necessary documents for completion of purchase.

We are delighted with our new (to us) Hardy motor boat. | Boatshed Portsmouth

Thank you again for the very efficient way you have handled the sale. It has been a long haul but also a pleasure to deal with you and the money has already reached our bank.

With kind regards and best wishes for the future, Michael and Mary | Boatshed Portsmouth

This is the first yacht we have purchase but the staff at Boatshed Portsmouth made the process straight forward and painless. From the initial viewing through to final exchange they support us with time, patience and advice. An example of their support; the surveyor we had decided to use was out of the country when the boat was available to be lifted, Boatshed took charge of the logistics and managed to find another solution. Even after the final exchange they have been very supportive and willing to share local knowledge. An excellent service, would use again!

Having spent months looking at various vessels and having lifted and rejecting 2, listed with other brokers, we came across a boat listed with Boatshed Portsmouth. Sam Cassell was excellent, despite the fact that we drove the buying process fairly quickly. She answered our questions very promptly, even replying to calls, texts and emails in the evenings and at weekends. She negotiated a fair price which was both acceptable to us and the seller. The whole deal was brokered within a week The details and photographs listed on the Boatshed website were both detailed and accurate. After purchase Sam was instrumental in helping us find various trades to upgrade the boat. We would have no hesitation in recommending Boatshed Portsmouth to both buyers and sellers alike.

A friendly and efficient service - many thanks

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have met Samantha Cassell in our search for a Princess 415 as we live in New Zealand and had to rely on her help and advice from the other side of the world. Samantha has been just great to work with. We found her to be very professional and knowledgeable, and she went out of her way to help us in every way she could in locating a motor yacht that met our requirements. She could not have been more helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any intending purchaser and/or owner looking for a very competent broker and would be delighted to provide a verbal reference to anyone requiring a testimonial on her proficiency.

The Portsmouth branch of Boatshed was chosen by me to sell my Moody 346. I received personal attention from the beginning from Samantha Cassell who remained my contact throughout. Appointments for photographs, listing and viewings were kept to the minute. The on-line listing was comprehensive and accurate and I was allowed pre-publication viewing to provide any minor corrections. Negotiation with potential purchasers was carried out by Samantha, keeping me informed during the process Detailed negotiation with the actual buyer and all arrangements for the handover of paperwork and equipment was most effectively and timely completed. I am completely satisfied by the way in which Boatshed carried out the listing and sale of my boat and have no hesitation in recommending this brokerage and thank, in particular, the efficient and effective personal service provided by Samantha.

“I am very happy with the service provided by Boatshed Portsmouth during the sale of my yacht. Right from the start I found their broker, Samantha Cassell, to be professional,realistic and active on my behalf. A large number of photos and even a video tour of the boat at deck level, and inside the cabin, were quickly produced and posted on their website and I found encouragement from logging on to their website and seeing how many viewings their had been of my boat details. Once a potential buyer appeared Samantha kept me fully informed of progress and acted with vigour on my behalf. “

I have a busy schedule and wanted somebody to deal with the sale of my boat and have as little hassle as possible with paperwork or time consuming negotiations. Boatshed Portsmouth did the job.

We can highly recommend Boatshed Gosport to anyone who wishes to sell or buy a boat. The srevice is excellent, informative and everything is explained clearly at all stages. Being kept up to date and aware of proceedings and paperwork is very important and the monthly report of viewings and interest was always a welcome sight. The number of photographs taken and placed on their site gave potential interested people an excellent idea of our vessel before any viewing took place and we are sure this helped enormously to ensure only really serious people arrived to view our vessel. The assistance during the preparation, presentation, notification of possible clients and subsequent sale was efficient and professionally handled. Thank you Boatshed for a well planned and executed service.

Yours sincerely, Tony and Audrey | Boatshed Portsmouth

We were most impressed by the service rendered by Boatshed. Our Motor Cruiser received wide publicity and throughout the sale process, we were kept fully informed. In particular, the Boatshed website was most useful. The Boatshed Rep. was cheerful, cooperative and attended all viewings.

I placed my 28ft Gib'Sea with Samantha Cassell to sell on my behalf and was delighted with the fast response, attention to detail and very swift sale of the boat. Having spotted a few points on the boat that needed attention, the first viewing was within days of the notice appearing on the web site, an offer was made and accepted by us a week later, and the survey and completion within another week. They say it pays to use experts, and I can certainly confirm that in the service and results delivered by Sam and the Boatshed team

Hi Sam I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help in finding my yacht, Cloud Nine. The Boatshed website has a great selection of boat, with lots of photos, which really helped me decide what type of yachts to look for. It is also really straight forward to use. I found your advice really helpful and appriciate all the time you spent sorting everything out so that I was able to take ownership at very short notice. I was grateful for your subsequent visit, with your friend, to assist with the issues I had with the battery charger. Great service all round, thanks!

Wendy | Boatshed Portsmouth

I purchased my 35 foot Jeanneau Sun Odyssey through Boatshed Portsmouth having only 18 months of previous boat ownership. The approach was totally helpful and I felt that I was buying rather than being sold to. Myself and my wife were showed 5 boats within our price range and Sam Cassell the Boatshed salesperson could not have been more helpful or informative. I still had my old boat to sell which within 2 months of listing her with Sam she was SOLD, yay! I would not hesitate to use Boatshed for my next purchase and they made the entire process both transparent and enjoyable.

Dear Samantha, Boatshed Portsmouth. So "Jazz" has been sold and will be sailing the Seven Seas under a new captain. Just to say "Thank You" for the excellent service provided, by yourself, as regards selling "Jazz". I must say that the buyer having "Jazz" lifted and a survey completed before an offer made is very rare, but thank you for rising to the challenge. It is appreciated that you took the time and effort to contact the boat yard and sort out the little hitches along the way, especially when I reside in land locked Birmingham. And all with in two weeks, from survey, paperwork and hand over of "Jazz". Well done Samantha, and I hope to converse with you again, with the view of purchasing my next vessel.

Best Regards Jon | Boatshed Portsmouth

Many thanks for your help in selling Moo Moo. I had little interest in the boat before using Boatshed, but within only a short period, a successful offer was negotiated and the sale went through promptly. "I can happily say that all the team I dealt with at Boatshed Hayling Island were helpful and knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to turn to them again in the future should the need arise. Many thanks again"

Mr T Crane | Boatshed Hayling Island

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank for making the purchase of the Sea Ray nice and straightforward and relatively painless (for me at any rate). Also, thank you for arranging completion on a Saturday evening, when I understand everyone has things other thank work that they'd rather be doing!

Peter Apps | Boatshed Suffolk

David/Kevin, Just wanted to say thanks for your help yesterday strapping the boat down. Looking forward to getting her on the water. I will certainly be recommending your services to my mate who is looking for a RIB and lives in Bosham.
