Following the sale of my boat I now take this opportunity to thank Ian Sawkins and Derek Armstrong for all your help and service given in the time the vessel has been for sale with you. We have always been kept informed about any prospective purchasers and was never left to ‘wonder how things are going’. Thank you for all your help and advice. We wouldn’t hesitate to direct prospective boat owners/sellers to The Boatshed for a hassle free service.

Derek Boatshed Scotland: We could not have had a better service or personal relationship with an agent than we have had with you. It really has been a pleasure. The advice you gave us to hold back from spending money on repairs was spoton, and you were brilliant at finding and encouraging the Balvicar interest, which has enabled us to shed our burden and at the same time know that the boat is going to a good home. Many thanks for the care and attention you have given to the sale of our battered old boat. I realise that you probably have to put even more effort into selling a wreck than selling a modern superyacht, and your recompense is not excessive, to say the least. But we are very satisfied clients of Boatshed, if that is any consolation, and I hope that our paths will continue to cross in the highlands and islands. All good wishes

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.

"Thank you for bring this one to a successful sale and I hope that the buyer enjoys sailing her. In the meantime, I would also like to say how much easier it is to sell a boat through a broker such as yourselves as you have handled all the appropriate paperwork on my behalf! I would also like to thank you for the time spent in ensuring that the sale was kept on track and advising me at every step of the way. I look forward to doing business with you again in the future."

- Mrs J Davies | Boatshed Hayling Island

Thanks so much Graham. We are excited for our first day out and about. Thank you for all of your assistance yesterday! We would definitely recommend you as a broker

- Tim & Lori (buyers) | Boatshed Bourgogne

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
