Sam is outstanding. Very responsive and professional. She really knows the market well and made the sale of my boat very easy. Highly recommended.

Great service, helped me every step of the way, really good experience. Would definitely recommend!

I received very good service from the brokerage team.Mine was not the easiest boat to sell as although very well built, in good order and lacking nothing it was a little known class. The extensive advertising exposure uncovered a few interested parties and a buyer was found. I was impressed by Sam's wide experience and knowledge of the boat market. I was consistently updated in developments and given wise advice.

Sam was key to the successful sale of my high spec, lightly-used yacht. An international buyer offered a fair price but could not view due to COVID. Sam set up a video viewing for me to ‘show’ the yacht to the buyers. They liked what they saw well enough to complete the sale without actually seeing the yacht. Selling internationally is complex, but Sam knows how to cement a comfortable and safe deal for both sides. She is committed, tenacious, good fun to work with, and highly recommended. Well done Sam!

I have just bought through Boatshed. The purchase was quick with support from Samantha throughout. A good experience.

Sam has just facilitated the sale of my boat and from start to finish was superb service. I liked her honest approach and that she did the best for both parties to strike a fair deal. I would definitely use her again and would happily recommend her.

We would like to share our thanks to Sam at Boatshed Portsmouth for the sale of our Jeanneau. The sale was completed quickly and efficiently with friendly professional service throughout the process. We would not hesitate to recommend.

Sam Cassell sold my boat for the full asking price in less than 24 hours. Throughout the sale she was extremely professional and helpful, and even managed to get the purchaser to pay for 50% of the one main issue thrown up by the survey. Thanks to Sam, the whole process was hassle free from my point of view, I would definitely recommend her services and think they represented excellent value.

- Richard. May 2021 | Boatshed Portsmouth

We bought our boat through Boatshed and have to say that everything went very smoothly and quickly. The best thing is the speed of communication between Sam and the owner to my questions, and the electronic versions of paperwork makes life so much easier.

- Steve. June 2021 | Boatshed Portsmouth

Samantha was easy to work with. Clear with every step of the purchase of our boat, always getting back to us with information when we asked for it. Strong recommendation from me.

- Seumas. June 2021 | Boatshed Portsmouth

It costs more but the support and service is worth it. Sam kept me up to date throughout, sorted viewings and happily gives frank, straightforward advice and selling and buying. When negotiations got tricky due to unforeseen issues on survey, having a broker helps, and I think gives the buyer more confidence to find a way forward, which we did. Sad to see the boat go, but looking forward to the next one!

- Stephen. April 2021 | Boatshed Portsmouth

Really good accurate advice, incredibly fast sale just as predicted but importantly I felt supported by a professional all the way. Sam knows how to be direct and keep information real for both seller and buyer...a real skill! - Thank you again Sam.

- Mr. Broome. June 2021 | Boatshed Portsmouth

Many thanks to Sam at Boatshed for driving the sale of my boat during a very difficult lockdown year. I was kept well informed throughout and provided good advice. Many Thanks.

I bought a yacht from Boatshed in April and the whole process was managed really professionally by Samantha. I then asked Samantha to deal with selling my old yacht which she also dealt with professionally. I can't recommend both her and Boatshed highly enough. She was always available and kept me unto date. Superb!

- Barry. 12/06/21 | Boatshed Portsmouth

We found Samantha and Steve extremely helpful, efficient and provided excellent service with selling our small open boat. Nothing was too much trouble and I would encourage everyone selling a boat to use

I was recommended to Boatshed by a friend. In these strange times of Covid 19 I needed to place my boat on sale knowing I would be unable to be present due to travel restrictions (My home is in France). Therefore it was important to have full confidence in the agent. I arranged a meeting with Samantha at the boat when she explained terms and conditions and gave a global estimate as to market value and advertising. From there, Samantha created video and PowerPoint presentation and we met once more in the open at the boat yard to sign contracts. Boatshed has made monthly reports of viewing through social media and informed me of people who have made several viewings. The initial six months of contract was ending as was winter. I exchanged emails with Samantha and considered entering Boatshed Auction which in fact did not happen as Samantha informed me of an offer. This was followed through with a survey for the purchaser and an agreed price confirmed between the purchaser and me. Samantha has handled all at distance for me including the bill of sale, and eventual electronic payments direct to my bank account. I can now recommend Samantha and the Boatshed service. My only reservation was the fixed minimum commission which was explained from the outset. This would mean that owners of older and lower valued boats would not find Boatshed’s terms necessarily very attractive.

Sam has just facilitated the sale of my boat and from start to finish was superb service. I liked her honest approach and that she did the best for both parties to strike a fair deal. I would definitely use her again and would happily recommend her.

- Rob, Portsmouth Harbour | Boatshed Portsmouth

This was a private sale with Boatshed being introduced to help formalise the completion late into the cycle. The owner and the buyer were both new to selling and buying boats - and I do not believe we would have reached an agreement without Boatshed’s involvement. On a second hand boat there is none of the certainty related to a new boat purchase. The survey can and did throw a spanner in the works. There are so many aspects to the sale ranging from financial to technical and emotional it is a real skill to bring both parties together and complete. Whilst the broker represented the seller I also felt that my point of view was properly represented and we ended-up with a fair result all round.

- James, Portsmouth Harbour | Boatshed Portsmouth

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.
