Dear Sirs, We have just purchased our first narrowboat from Mr Phil Bassett (Grand Union) and felt we had to send you our feedback. From our initial inquiry Phil was courteous, informative and quick to respond to making our first viewing appointment. We had two viewings in total and I cannot praise Phil enough for his salesmanship. He took every question we had seriously, following up each inquiry quickly, sometimes having to liaise with the owner. He obviously has a good professional working relationship with the marina that the boat is moored at which made our purchase even easier with any further questions. We originally had a one twelfth share in a narrow boat for four years in total but always knew we would purchase our own, visiting a number of brokers within a radius of about 80 miles. Initial response from many was flimsy with hardly any followup and the quality of the boats at times was questionable for the price and we had doubts as to whether offers were in fact relayed to the owner! How refreshing to find Phil at Boatshed Grand Union who instilled confidence in us and made our buying experience so pleasurable, a feather in your cap.

My partner Michael Kelly and I have just bought a boat from Boatshed in Costa Brava, Empuriabrava. Paul and Steve the guy's that we dealt with we're absolutely fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. They even helped organise our moorings for the year, they are a credit to your organisation and we just wanted to show some kind of recognition for all their hard work. It has been a pleasure doing business and we are going to keep in touch with them as we will be going back to the boat in March time. Again well done on a good organisation.

I purchased Romar. I can recommend the broker, Graham Wharmby at Boatshed Bourgogne, who did a fabulous job for the seller and for me

Hello Gary (Boatshed Norfolk), You have been a pleasure to deal with. Very Very Professional ! I will not be looking to hard for a boat between now and end March as it will only sit at the end of the garden doing nothing during that time However, if you come across a Marex or something similar please send me the details as I will be buying a boat for next season. Thanks again for your help

Hi Simone (Boatshed Thames), Have just returned from a short holiday and would like to say Thank You for the professional and efficient way you handled the sale of Holly once I had fixed on the right price.

Don & Audrie Reeve | Boatshed Thames

Mike (Boatshed Norfolk), Just a note to say thanks very much to you and Gary, for your help in selling Roma. It took a while, but that is not surprising, as she is an unusual boat, so thanks for hanging in till we got there. The new owners seem very pleased after their maiden trip at the weekend, so let's hope they remain so.

To Boatshed Norfolk, I wish to express my appreciation for the way in which Keith handled the sale of my yacht Evensong. I was not in the best of health and he took care of all aspects of the sale leaving me worry free and achieving a very fair price for the boat. I will most certainly recommend your service to others as I consider he went the extra mile on my behalf Many Thanks

I just purchased Scaramouche a Cal246. Alan Boatshed Phuket at your dealer in Boat Lagoon, Phuket, Thailand was the Greatest Guy to deal with and made the purchase a true Joy for both me and the previous owner.

Hi Gary (Boatshed Norfolk), Just a note to say thanks for the time and trouble you went to to allow us to view several boats. However I cannot praise your service enough and be sure if and when we are in the market again we will be in touch. Once again thanks.

Tina & Richard Vanston | Boatshed Norfolk

I and my wife Julia, would like to pass on our thanks on to Keith for making the purchase of our first boat, Volare, an absolute pleasure. Keith arranged everything from the first viewing to completion of the sale, including transportation from Gt Yarmouth to Windsor. We were unable to be present to take delivery of Volare after completion, so after he arranged for the hauliers to pick up the boat, Keith was also on hand to ensure she was lifted onto the transport at Gt Yarmouth and sent safely on her way to us. We are still in touch with Keith (Boatshed Norfolk) who is always available to answer any questions which have cropped up since we took delivery of her last Month. If Keith is the yardstick for the rest of your brokers then I would recommend anyone thinking of buying a boat to use Boatshed. Kind regards

To John (Boatshed Gibraltar), That's really great news. Thank you so much for all your guidance and help throughout.

Katy | Boatshed Gibraltar

I was not expecting to sell my boat so quickly and at a great price. The Boatshed broker was present at every stage of the process and took a close interest, keeping me fully informed. Your knowledge, expertise and involvement brought about a speedy conclusion.

Chris Hillaby | Boatshed

Dear Scott (Boatshed Seattle), I am writing this letter to show my appreciation for a job well done. I cannot thank you enough for all of the help you provided me this past fall with the purchase of my boat, Coast Guard 44364, through your company Waterline Boats. This was a rather complex transaction being that I live in Ohio and the boat was located in Seattle. If it were not for your understanding broker skills I would not have been able to purchase this boat and get it transported to Ohio. I learned a great deal from watching you see this deal through to the very last detail including personally seeing to it that the boat was properly loaded on the transport truck as it prepared for its journey to its new home in Sandusky, Ohio. The boat is now in dry dock in Sandusky, winterized, and waiting for the spring to have the hull sandblasted and repainted in its traditional Coast Guard white. The boat should be ready to go by the end of May to participate in local Memorial Day Events. There has been a great deal of interest in the 44364 since its arrival in Sandusky and it was featured in a local newspaper, the _Sandusky Register,_ on November 28, 2011. I was pleased to see that the reporter contacted you to provide details on how we actually got the boat transported to Sandusky. I have enclosed the newspaper article for you. Again, thank you so much for helping me realize my dream of owning this boat and I wish you and Lisa all the best this upcoming holiday season and in the new year. Respectfully
