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.

My Thanks to Samantha and to Boatshed for the sale of my Hardy family pilot if you need to sell your boat their the people to go too!

“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”.

- Mike Finch, Portsmouth Offshore Group | Boatshed Portsmouth

Most people don’t sell a boat very often so don’t know the ropes. Most people aren’t dispassionate enough to price their boat to sell. Most people don’t live close to their mooring so showing people around the boat can be difficult. Most people don’t have marketing skills and an easily found, well thought out website. Most people, if they think it through, would use Boatshed to sell their boat. I did and it worked beautifully. Many thanks to Samantha and her team at Gosport. A job well done!

- M Childs, Portsmouth Offshore Group | Boatshed Portsmouth

I am really pleased I chose Boatshed Portsmouth to sell my sailing yacht, Trouble Maker. Sam was very helpful and professional with frequent updates throughout the sale process. The sale went through within my preferred timescale and I would recommend them to anyone selling their boat.

- Ian, Royal Clarence Marina | Boatshed Portsmouth

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.

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.
