I bought my boat my boat; a very smart and pretty 1963 wooden Folkboat; in early December 2016 from the Boatshed Poole/Lymington Yacht Brokerage. I first saw the boat via an on line search and I had been looking for a good well priced wooden Folkboat for some time. The staff at Boatshed; Andrea and Jane; were very helpful and informative and soon arranged for me to view the boat with the owner. I instantly fell in love with her and arranged a test sail with the owner, which only went to confirm what a fine boat she was. Once the sale was agreed with the owner Boatshed were very helpful and made all the necessary arrangements for the transfer of funds and arranging a suitable collection time with the owner and completing all the necessary paper work. I would recommend Boatshed to anyone looking for friendly service and informative staff who have an obvious love of boats and all things sailing.

Hi Gary Today was a little emotional –it feels like losing a member of your family. Thanks for your email regarding the bank transfer and I must sincerely thank you for a very efficient job. I am happy that Beagle III will have a good new custodian | Boatshed Norfolk

Buying a new boat is supposed to be a pleasure but we were finding the process difficult and frustrating in trying to buy our Larson from the local dealership who had it on brokerage. Having near enough given up we found that Boatshed Poole were also listing the actual boat that we wanted. Boatsheds Will West was able to reopen negotiations with the owner and successfully agree terms of purchase. We now have our boat. Personally I think that the success of this transaction was totally down to Wills tenacity, forebearance and good temper in dealing with both sides, plus having to manage the main dealers who had failed previously and were disinterested in helping anybody to proceed. Unless Will had persisted, to get over the hurdles placed in his way, then the vendor would not have sold his boat and we could not have purchased it. We recommend Will West and Boatshed for going the extra mile and taking a full professional interest in the needs and demands of both parties to achieve what everybody set out to do.

Thank you Paul for all your help selling our boat and especially moving it for us as we could not do it.

Roy Howard | Boatshed Lancashire

Paul and Helen did a fantastic job selling my Sunseeker. They made the whole process pain free and easy and took care of everything.

Terry Newton | Boatshed Lancashire

I have been delighted with the service received from Boatshed North Wales in the sale of my yacht. I have previously used 2 other well-known brokers; not only did they not achieve a sale, but there was minimal evidence of any proactive work to do this and their liaison with me during the process was poor. With Chris Tindall, Boatshed met all my expectations – and more: • Immediate response to my enquiry • Sound advice re price and marketing • Prompt and comprehensive sales details and photos • Almost instant introduction of genuine, potential purchasers • Effective sale negotiation • Good tracking of the deal, assistance with survey, etc • Sound administration of the sale process • Speedy and clear completion I would not hesitate to use Boatshed again and would highly recommend them to others needing support with the sale of their boat.
