I have just purchased a beautiful narrow boat with the help of John Stokes. John explained and informed me through every step of buying the boat from the first viewing, the survey and to the transportation. He has also been a great help giving me advice on my very first narrow boat. Well done John I say! I would and will strongly recommend him and boatshed in the future. Thank you again for the support and help

I had tried a few brokers before I found out about Boatshed, and immediately wished I had known about Boatshed earlier - communication, courtesy and professionalism were excellent. Tim guided me through all the stages of the sale and was an awesome sounding board. I had an offer within 6 days of my advert going live! I would recommend them to all!

Thank you so much for everything. Wouldn't have happened without you. XXXXXXX brokers weren't great and XXXXXXX told me after three weeks they didn't want it, so you were a breath of fresh air. Great communication and support. Thanks again.

Tim from Boatshed Brighton really made sure buying our yacht was pain free. We don't live near Brighton, so the idea of a long distance purchase initially seemed daunting. We didn't need to worry though, because through Tim's communication, we knew exactly what was happening at all times. If you're buying a boat, then I would really recommend Tim. He facilitates good communication lines between the buyer and seller. Thanks Tim

We are very happy that we purchased her, thanks again for all your help.

I registered with Boatshed Brighton when looking for our new boat, I never got spammed with stuff and the photos/video were excellent, well worth the effort if you are a serious buyer and Tim was great although he didn't need to sell me the boat - the images had already done that...

Hi David, I was pleased by the speed with which the boat sold and that is my main point. I was also glad you found a serious buyer and not just a tyre-kicker. The data on the comprehensive range of contacts you made to promote the boat was useful background but clearly not as important as my first two points. So I would summarise in decreasing order of importance to me as: - speedy sale of boat - contact with serious buyers - very comprehensive list of potential buyers to market to. Hope this helps. Many thanks for your help in finding a buyer. Tony M

I must place on record my appreciation of the attention I recieved from Tim, Julie and Wendy during the sale of my boat. Julie was so attentive and communicated with me at every step of the way. At the finale my gift of a bottle of Rum was so unexpected and I can assure you is going "down" well ! I do wish I had another boat to sell to repeat the experience. Yours Aye Dave Perrin

Thanks again for your help and would be more than happy to recommend Boatshed Brighton.

To Ken, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your assistance with the sale. You provided a really excellent service.

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

I would like to thank you and Boatshed for the support in purchasing Zeta. The entire process was very straightforward and efficient. You have shown me several boats and supported me in finding a suitable boat for myself and my family. Your knowledge of the boats, the south coast and sailing in general made it much easier. I really like your website - it is very easy to find what you need/ are looking for. Thank you again and I would not hesitate to recommend Boatshed to another person.

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

all the best, Tim | Boatshed Portsmouth

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. “
