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

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.

‘Samantha Cassell responded really quickly to my yacht sale enquiry just before a boat show, and had full details with lots of great photos on her website within 24 hrs. Throughout a 3-month sale process, she proved herself to be very attentive, knowledgeable, trustworthy, reliable and unflustered. I certainly recommend her brokerage.’

Thank you to both you and Bruce for all your help in selling Egeria. Everything went very smoothly and it was very stress free for us. We will definitely contact you again should we need to sell another boat. Thank you Melanie and Graham

"Just wanted to say thank you for the efficient service you provided during the purchase of Egeria. Everything was dealt with in a professional helpful manner and made the whole process stress free. I would recommend Boatshed to any other would be boat buyers out there!"

Sam Cassell at Boatshed acted for us selling our Bavaria. We were immediately struck by her knowledge of the market and her in-depth technical understanding. She always offered sound advice and demonstrated shrewd judgement. We particularly appreciated her ability to explain the buyers perspective. She was unfailingly courteous and very prompt in dealing with all matters. Her handling of all the administrative details of the sale was faultless. We would unreservedly recommend Boatshed Portsmouth and Sam.

Jules was my contact and investigated on my behalf.  She was excellent.  Kept me informed and was both diligent and thorough.  Look after her; she is an asset.

"Samantha Cassell at Boatshed Portsmouth sold our Westerly Oceanranger in 6 months during last summer, in a difficult market. She was very professional and knowledgeable and was pro-active in working to obtain a sale."

Bruce | Boatshed Portsmouth

“We would like to thank Sam Cassell and her team for their excellent service selling our Sun Odyssey 32. We always found her efficient and timely in our dealings. Her description of the boat and comprehensive suite of photos ensured the boat was presented in the best possible manner. Her guidance on final improvements to the presentation was much appreciated as was her advice on price for achieving the rapid sale which we required. We valued notice of viewings and the subsequent feedback. We felt Sam has an excellent appreciation of the local market and the speed and dynamics of selling a boat. Well done indeed Boatshed Portsmouth for an excellent job."

Thérèse and Tony Rice | Boatshed Portsmouth

I would like to thank Sam for all her assistance, knowledge and communication with the purchase my new boat. Sam has been at all times patient, as my purchase took a couple of months, and I have never felt pressured or under informed. Only this week on completion she met me on a cold winters night at around 9pm to hand over the keys you could not wish for more in a broker and she will be my first port of call should I think of selling to upsize.

Stephen M, Woking | Boatshed Portsmouth

We would like to say how pleased we have been with the efficient service and positive approach that Samantha Cassell of Boatshed has given us. We were provided with good advice when the boat was first put on the market, very good photographs and details were taken and we have always been kept closely informed of prospective purchasers and their views. The sale went through very smoothly and the account settled quickly on completion. Samantha has always been very quick to reply both verbally and by text, which has helped us to keep good momentum in the sale process. I would certainly recommend Boatshed Portsmouth and will use them to purchase my next boat if something suitable becomes available.

Josh, Jules and yourself are excellent at your job in my humble opinion. I would buy from you again. All the best to you all.

Cheers Dan, I appreciate your energy and help. It makes it easier and less stressful.

Hi Kevin, Just to say I got out on the boat today and absolutely love it! Such a good little boat and very happy. Really glad I bought this from you and not the other one and it really does plane instantly. Thanks again to Boatshed Hayling Island. Andy

Mr A Griffiths | Boatshed Hayling Island

Portsmouth Boatshed agreed to undertake to sale of our Bavaria 34 in May 17 and Sam Cassell came aboard to take the photos and gather details. She ensured that the photos showed our boat at its best and then discussed the process of the sale. She also instructed us on all the documents she would need to see. The boat went on the website and Sam showed our boat to potential buyers as we lived a long way from Portsmouth. She kept us up-to-date at all times and when she had a positive buyer as we were going on holiday, she prepared all the paperwork she would need to proceed with the sale. Whilst we were on holiday in July 17 she sold the yacht and checked we could deliver the boat when needed. We are very satisfied with how the sale progressed and are happy with Portsmouth Boatshed overall.

very happy, thank you | Boatshed Portsmouth

....very happy with the service, communication, and staff at boatshed. Will definitely use them if I need to sell again......
