"Hi David Firstly thank you for finalising the sale of my boat. This is the first boat I have sold. You made the process far easier than I was expecting. I had been putting it off for some time but if I knew what I know now I wouldn't have. The boat sold far more quickly than I expected it to so thank you. It's clear you are very enthusiastic about your boats and boating which I am sure helps you do what you are doing. I would happily recommend yourself to anyone selling their boat"

Mr C Sotheron | Boatshed Hayling Island

Hi David Just a quick mail to say thanks to you and your team at Boatshed for selling our boat. I must say I was very impressed with service including the backup from Boatshed head office which obviously helped the speedy efficient sale.

Mr M Connor - Sept 17 | Boatshed Hayling Island

Dear David, I have found working with you and Boatshed Hayling Island a very pleasurable experience. Purchasing my recent yacht, not something I have done for many years was well managed and co-ordinated by yourself for which I am most grateful. You were kind enough to guide me through the processes and procedures and to assist in negotiating with the owner and boatyard those items on the yacht which required repair or replacement following a full yacht marine survey. Although it took a while for some of the work to be carried out due to schedules and availability of marine engineers and the like, I have peace of mind following the purchase that I hopefully have a sound yacht which will serve me for many years to come. Boatshed’s standard contract was helpful from a purchasers perspective in making clear each parties duties and responsibilities which must minimise the potential for disputes as long as a professional full yacht marine survey is carried out. Once again I would like to thank you for your help, support and guidance throughout this process and would not hesitate to use your services and Boatshed in the future.

Mr P Dowsett | Boatshed Hayling Island

Many thanks for your help in selling Moo Moo. I had little interest in the boat before using Boatshed, but within only a short period, a successful offer was negotiated and the sale went through promptly. "I can happily say that all the team I dealt with at Boatshed Hayling Island were helpful and knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to turn to them again in the future should the need arise. Many thanks again"

Mr T Crane | Boatshed Hayling Island

David/Kevin, Just wanted to say thanks for your help yesterday strapping the boat down. Looking forward to getting her on the water. I will certainly be recommending your services to my mate who is looking for a RIB and lives in Bosham.

Mr J Broome - Bristol | Boatshed Hayling Island

I would highly recommend David of Boatshed Hayling Island , he and the company were excellent in selling my Kruger Delta. My dealings with David, who worked locally, was exceptional. His friendly and knowledgeable attitude gave me every confidence. My whole experience from start to finish was exemplary. Thank you.

Mr C Osborne - Hayling Island | Boatshed Hayling Island

I would like to compliment Boatshed on their website, it is easy to use and with the plethora of photographs I find it quite entertaining. I’m not even sure I would have bought my most recent boat -a Spring 25- if I had not enjoyed visiting your website; and because of the descriptive photographs and text I was able to make my mind up without spending weeks and months driving around Britain wasting time and fuel searching. I have since recommended the site to a friend whom is now searching for a boat of his own. The transaction with David Mowatt went very smoothly and within the week I had completion on the contract and took ownership of my new boat. Keep up the good work.

Mr M Tullett, - East Sussex - June 17 | Boatshed Hayling Island

'The Boatshed service was extremely efficient and professional from first to last. Dave Mowatt gave realistic advice on pricing and followed up every sales lead assiduously. I'd certainly use Boatshed again.'

Mr P Binning - Emsworth - June 17 | Boatshed Hayling Island

Dear Dave Whilst writing I should like to thank you for handling the sale on my behalf. I was impressed by your professionalism from the start and this has run through with all my dealings up to completion of the sale. I am grateful to you for all your hard work on my behalf. Kind regards Tim

We recently purchased a sailing boat that was being marketed by Boatshed.com at Hayling Island. Throughout the process, Kevin and David were highly responsive and efficient and worked hard to make sure that things happened when they needed to. We would be happy to recommend Boatshed.com to other boat owners.

Tony and Chris Harris | Boatshed Hayling Island

Many thanks to both you and Kevin for your excellent service in both the purchase of my Sealine 310 and in sorting out the numerous issues along the way.

Mr P Brennan | Boatshed Hayling Island

David at Boatshed Hayling Island has recently sold my boat for me in sad circumstances. He was very considerate and kind. He behaved in a professional way at all times with prompt feedback. All the paperwork was handled quickly and efficiently. I would recommend "Boatshed" Hayling Island to anyone wanting to buy or sell a boat.

Mrs A Careswell - March 2017 | Boatshed Hayling Island

Big thanks to David Mowatt of Boatshed Hayling Island for a friendly and professional service, giving the buyer and the seller peace of mind. Thanks again, Alistair

Mr A Ghinn - March 2017 | Boatshed Hayling Island

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

It was a pleasure to meet you on Saturday, and that’s not a platitude – I really mean it; it was a pleasure and I want to thank you for giving us all the information you had.

Geoff, October 2017 | Boatshed Brighton

Thanks for this successful sale!

We are very grateful for the time Jules gave to showing us around the boat - nothing was too much trouble, thank you.

Gerry, October 2017 | Boatshed Brighton

Hi Gary. Firstly many thanks for the Bill Of Sale re "Sea Melody" Which came last week hopefully all being well the boat is being moved tomorrow back to me here. And in the end I got Richardson's to anti foul and valet the inside and out for me while it was there waiting although I keep asking for the bill and no one seems to send it seems you are all so trusting still down in Norfolk! I also just wanted to thank you personally Gary for all you work and help for me in buying the boat. I'm sure it will bring me much fun I don't think I will be able to open it up on the river but the cockpit will be super to have the family down in the summer we all live in walking distance of the very beautiful and quiet summer mooring here, for the winter I'm going to keep it at a more secure mooring where it will come to tomorrow. So like I say many thanks for you patience and help re the buying.

Many Sincere thanks for your help | Boatshed Norfolk
