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

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

Just wanted to say a big thank you. Buying a boat can sometimes be as traumatic as owning one and I'd like to thank you for breaking the mould and making this one a real pleasure. I'm not sure you could have done any more and you certainly made the experience smooth and very painless. If I could ever afford another one I'd certainly be asking you to find it for me. Thanks again, it really was much appreciated.

After wasting over a year and then all summer with other boat yards and advertising ourselves to try to sell we did not expect the level of sales and service that we received when we handed our sports cruiser over to the Boatshed Bristol based at Portishead to sell for us in the winter missing the season and thinking it would just sit there at least until next summer. They actively compared the market with other boats to find it's true value and actually sold our boat for us within a couple of months for a fair price, two days before Xmas day and then contacted us and paid us our money immediately. What a nice Xmas present and what a great service.

"Sam, many thanks to you and your colleagues for managing the sale of Hamba. The sale was carried out professionally and I am sure that the new owner will also be happy with the result. I must pay credit to the way Hamba was presented on your website, the fact that the new owner travelled from the West Country to both view and subsequently purchase Hamba was testament to the quality of the presentation."

- Thanks again. Stuart | Boatshed Port Solent

Thanks again for all your help, I'll definitely recommend you guys to people in the future.

Just purchased a boat through your company, although it was at the lower end, price-wise, of the market, Paul, the local manager was both helpful and professional in his, dealings.

- Robert J | Boatshed Yorkshire

You have been great through the process. Many thanks and I will be sure to contact you next time I either purchase or sell another boat.

- David, W (June, 2020) | Boatshed Essex

Many thanks for handling the sale of my boat and I would certainly recommend you and/or Boatshed to anyone who needs services as good as yours when buying or selling a boat. Best wishes, Richard

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.

I have found Boatshed Essex to be a friendly and effective brokers. I have purchased a boat through them, and found them to be cordial, helpful and correct. What I most look for in a broker is honesty and efficiency and this is what I got.

This is the second time I have used Boatshed to sell my boat. Though there are indeed other capable folk out there, the professionalism of their presentation of my boats on BoatShed Essex has been the key factor. Jayne from Boatshed Essex took a large number of specific photos around the boat. She and Chris also maintained contact with updates on interest. They also met prospective clients to view the boat, so convenient as I lived miles away. I believe the professionalism, personal involvement and commitment by BoatShed is well worth the commission.

I have known Boatshed, for a number of years, their experience in selling boats, and customer care, is second to none.
