Having decided to sell my boat I instructed Boatshed to sell the boat for me and was contacted by Sam. Initially I thought it quite expensive but did not have the time to sell the boat myself. The selling of the boat was far from straightforward and a few problems were encountered along the way. Sam dealt with these problems for me and if she could not then she would point me in the right direction. Sam kept me up to date and was brilliant during the whole process. Having looked back, the fee charged by boasted was well worth the money as had I had to sort out the problems myself I would probably still own the boat and would be pulling what little hair I have left out. Cannot recommend Sam enough.

“A helpful, friendly and knowledgeable team at Boatshed Portsmouth. Despite all the challenges of COVID, lockdown and Christmas! Sam and her team were able to help arrange a smooth, safe and extremely speedy process. From first viewing to handover in under 4 weeks! Quite remarkable when having to contend with Christmas, New Year and Lockdown too ! “

Samantha from Boatshed Portsmouth led me through all the processes to sell my boat quickly, was extremely helpful and worked really hard during a difficult time to achieve a good price

We bought our boat through Boatshed Portsmouth and were very happy with the service we received so when we decided to sell the boat, we had no hesitation in using them again. Samantha talked us through both processes every step of the way and always responded quickly to any questions we had. She was always contactable, open, honest and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Boatshed and would certainly use them again. Thanks for all your help and we wish you a happy New Year.

I have just bought my yacht through Boatshed Portsmouth. Despite the ongoing restrictions of COVID, Sam made it an absolute pleasure to do business keeping me updated and informed throughout the process by phone and email. No question was too difficult and she dealt with all aspects from the owner, marina and surveyor through to arranging lift out for inspection. Given difficulty travelling and distance this made sure the whole experience went seamlessly. Definitely 5 stars! I would strongly recommend the excellent service.

Sam works hard to drive forward your boat sale, has great availability and overall does a great job.

- Peter. Gosport Premier Marina | Boatshed Portsmouth

Sam provided great help during the sale of our vessel. Initially guiding us through the Boatshed system and making sure we had a sensible listing and then coordinating various enquiries leading to a successful sale. Sam was patient with us during the whole process and provided us with support (some of which was appropriately robust to ensure correct procedures were followed) during the final sale to reach a satisfactory handover.

Dear Samantha, Thank you for the good news about completion, and a big thank you for making the whole process of selling my beloved boat so painless. Above all you have been swiftly efficient; I know we got lucky but even so the marketing to find a buyer in Cornwall that quickly was impressive. A big thank you

I have no hesitation. In recommending Boatshed of Gosport run by Sam Cassell who acted in the purchase by me of a Westerly Griffon. Nothing was too much trouble and she was immediately active in sorting out the few issues that arose with the vessel. All in all a very professional company. New Westerly owner!

Sam was key to the successful sale of my Dehler 35. I was looking for a premium price for my highly-specified, well-maintained and lightly-used yacht. She made me renew some features, I wrote the web site details, she conducted some viewings, and I conducted others. I always felt it was likely to sell to an international buyer, and so it proved. One buyer committed to purchase subject to viewing, but subsequently was unable to come to the UK due to lockdown. Sam then introduced another foreign buyer, who offered an improved price. At the last minute, they also could not come to the UK due to COVID. But Sam set up a video viewing for me to ‘show’ the yacht to the buyers. They liked what they saw enough to complete the sale without actually seeing the yacht. Selling internationally is complex, but Sam really knew how to close and cement a deal that is comfortable and safe for both sides. She is committed, tenacious, good fun to work with, and highly recommended. Well done Sam!

Dear Samantha, Thank you for all your help and hard work in helping us to sell our boat. We have appreciated your advice and diligence throughout. The timing of the sale was particularly challenging since the boat went onto the market just before the Covid pandemic closed down all activity at a crucial time in the sailing year. When viewing finally became possible, you managed a swift and very professional transaction with which we are extremely well satisfied.

- Yours sincerely John and Gina Guy. Hornet Sailing Club | Boatshed Portsmouth

I sold my boat through Boatshed Portsmouth. The process was simple and straightforward. Sam did a great job when it came to the final stages of the sale, and I felt she wanted both parties to be satisfied and a fair deal to be brokered. I would definitely recommend Boatshed Portsmouth to potential buyers and sellers in the future.

- Thanks Tim | Boatshed Portsmouth

When Boatshed decided to take “Tickymint” on, there was no going back. The boat is 40 years old but does sport a new engine...as does a 1000 others. They made it their mission to find a buyer and whilst the voyage was long and bumpy, Boatshed persevered and triumphed. Throughout the service, monthly viewing stats, personal contact and guidance & importantly, patience with their client never wavered. The result was everything I hoped for... & honestly a tad better service than my best guess. Thank you Sam at Boatshed, great job !

'I was greatly comforted by the way Samantha from Boatshed Portsmouth managed my boat viewing with the vendor. There's so much to take in and I was able to relax and enjoy the process knowing that Samantha would expertly prompt questions I hadn't even thought of! A reassuring way to start owning a boat! Many thanks Boatshed.

Thank you Boatshed Portsmouth and Samantha for completing the sale of my catamaran Paper Tiger. Samantha made it all happen quickly despite the challenges around the pandemic. My family and I have now used Boatshed to both buy and sell boats and they have succeeded where others have failed. I would not hesitate to recommend their comprehensive open, honest and effective approach to anyone, whether buying or selling.

“Samantha Cassell of Boatshed has worked tirelessly to sell my Moody 346. The boat was put on the market in May and was finally sold in February at a reduced price but what the market was prepared to pay. I would recommend Sam and Boatshed to any prospective seller”.
