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.

Tim has been amazing at guiding me through my first boat purchase. He has been patient and understanding at every step of the way. Even after completing the purchase he still offers help and assistance. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Jayne Markham was a very professional boat broker and brought about a sale with a very slow moving customer! She is a credit to Boatshed with her communication skills and non-pushy and patient ways.

Acabo de comprarle un velero. Me generó confianza desde el primer momento. Me ha gestionado el papeleo de cambio de pabellón. Es nuestro primer barco y estaba un poco perdido. Me parece un vendedor serio, de palabra. Creo que hemos empezado una amistad. Gracias Paul por ayudar a hacer nuestro sueño realidad. José Luis y Yolanda.

During the whole purchase process Samantha was constructive and supportive in all aspects with a great demeanour. Post purchase, Samantha was again very helpful in assisting me with getting in touch with local suppliers, who have all been great. Overall made the vessel purchase a very positive experience which is what you want.
