A successful sale in quite a short time. The whole web based system allows the vendor to if there is any interest. The best bit is at the end, clever software allows exchange of paperwork money and signatures without having to wait for the post. All done and dusted. Hooray. Chris W

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help buying EOS of Hythe. Taking ownership on Saturday was such a pleasure and I was so pleased at how smoothly it went. I really appreciated your swift and professional work throughout the process and certainly your level of knowledge and experience which of course, really helped with my decision to buy!! Thanks again.

- Tony | Boatshed Portsmouth

just a quick note to say, thank you for all your help and expertise in helping with the purchase of the Bavaria 32. It is a lot of money and being over 200 miles away I needed someone I could trust and give me full confidence in going through the process. As it turned out, your sound advice, help and ease of communicating made the process stress free and painless. You clearly have a good understanding of yachts and the potential hiccups involved in brokering, all of which do you and Boatshed great credit. thank you,

- David | Boatshed Portsmouth

Thank you for all the help you have given on this boat purchase, you have gone above and beyond to make this work, and is truly appreciated. Between us, in the first instance I had contacted a broker in Lancashire and a broker in Scotland near our home, but got very little enthusiasm from either of them to help with a purchase. Hence I started looking further afield. Their loss your gain!

Many thanks again to Samantha and the Boatshed team for handling the sale of my boat, once again...

I cannot recommend Sam, from Boatshed in Gosport (Portsmouth) enough as a sales broker. She was suggested to me by someone who has helped me out with running repairs on my catamaran for years. He told me she was “straight talking”, and a “no nonsense” person whom you could trust. He was absolutely right. Her presale advice was invaluable; she immediately identified what needed to be repaired/renewed before the boat was made available for viewing, and her insight into what buyers look at was invaluable. She saved me spending on useless items, whilst minor details I considered irrelevant were flagged up as worthy of attention. My catamaran is clearly intended for the Carribean or Mediterranean market, not an easy sale in Gosport. Nevertheless, I had two serious offers within 4 weeks of putting her on the market, and one of these lead to a successful sale a couple of weeks later. A significant achievement. If you are thinking of selling your boat in or near Gosport, talk to Sam from Boatshed first. You will not regret it.

I was very pleased with the service that Boatshed provided in the sale of my IOR racing yacht. My transaction was handled very efficiently by Samantha Cassell, and all stages from producing the advert details, to taking prospective purchasers over my boat, and finally closing out the sale with all paperwork in place were dealt with by Boatshed in a very professional manner. The service was good value for money and I would recommend Boatshed to others.

- S Winter | Boatshed Portsmouth

I write to tell you how delighted I have been with the service I've received from Boatshed, in particular I must commend Sam Cassell who is a true ambassador for 'Boatshed' - from the outset she has been communicative, professional, courteous, responsive and supportive. Nothing has been too much ..... from initial contact, throughout the process of the sale to the completion making the whole process smooth and efficient. With her boating knowledge and experience, clear photography and videos I was guided through each step to ensure every base was covered. I would highly recommend anyone selling a craft to use 'Boatshed' - what a great team !

- Elaine | Boatshed Portsmouth

On contacting Samantha at Portsmouth Boatshed I was immediately impressed by her attitude and professionalism. This continued throughout the advertising and sale of my boat. She was completely honest and realistic about the price and condition and was thorough in producing videos and pictures for the advert. I was abroad for most of the process so she took care of visiting the boat with prospective buyers, arranging a scrub, the test sail and the lift out for the survey. This made my life a lot easier and simpler. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Samantha to friends and club members.

In July this year my husband & I, with much sadness, took the decision to sell our much treasured sailing boat. We were initially going to put her on the market ourselves because we didn’t want to pay brokers fees but were unsure of current prices and the legal side of things. A friend recommend that we contact Sam at Boatshed. We never looked back, from the moment Sam walked on board I knew we had done the right thing. She was able to advise us on the current market prices & was very sensitive to the fact that we were very sad at having to sell our boat. Sam made a brilliant video and took lots of pictures, the good and the bad. She found us a buyer in about 2 weeks and arranged all the viewings, survey & test sail at times convenient to us & the prospective buyer. We also felt very protected as there was never any contact between us & the buyer without it going through Sam, also the brokers fees were not as much as we expected. I can only say that if you are wanting to sell your boat contact Sam, you won’t regret it.

- Many Thanks once again for all your efforts, Penny & Nick Carter x | Boatshed Portsmouth

Samantha Cassell was delightful to deal with. From the early email enquiries, to greeting me in person on the Quay, with a cheery smile, the whole process was quick, and smooth. I was impressed with her willingness to work for the best deal for both parties and her commitment to her work. At every stage she acted with the upmost professionalism, yet being totally accommodating to my needs and busy schedule. The end result is I now have a beautiful boat!

Samantha Cassell of Boatshed in Gosport has now sold two Vancouver yachts for me in two years. Each time she was quick to respond to my initial enquiry and followed up quickly with a boat visit to take masses of photos, both interior and exterior, and make videos all of which were posted on the website promptly. With my own log in to the Boatshed site I have been able to track how many people are looking at my boat online and to gauge the interest. Once offers were made matters progressed rapidly to completion of the sale with Samantha managing the process at all times.

If you are looking to sell your boat look no further than Boatshed Portsmouth. Located on the west side of Portsmouth Harbour, Boatshed provides a fast, thorough and professional service. I have recently sold my boat through them and from the initial detailed inspection to the completion of sale everything has been handled smoothly and expertly. As I said, look no further. You won't be disappointed.

- Jim | Boatshed Portsmouth

"From start to finish Boatshed provided an excellent service. From the initial visit, subsequent advice, photographic support and website platform it could not have been more easy. In addition regular visits by the representative to the boat for viewings as well as to allow engineers to gain access (I live 3hours away from the berth) were a great help. Finally advice in negotiating with the buyer and drawing the deal to a closure was achieved professionally and knowledgeably. I would use Boatshed again."

- David | Boatshed Portsmouth

I would like to say how very helpful Samantha has been to me when selling my boat. She has guided me through every step of the way of the sale and I am extremely grateful to her.

- Thank you. | Boatshed Portsmouth

Hi Samantha I would like to say thankyou for all you help in our purchasing my new boat. You worked hard and went the extra mile to get it all done quickly so I could sail off on my planned departure window. We are now very happy on our new mooring in Dartmouth and looking forward to a long sailing season.

“Thank you Sam for a job well done. You made the sale of Shimmering Water painless from beginning to end. Communications and keeping me informed at every step of the way was fantastic. I will certainly recommend Boatshed and, in particular yourself, to anyone looking to sell their boat in the Gosport area. Again well done and many thanks”
