Boatshed registers 500,000th customer!
We have just registered our 500,000th customer on Boatshed.com! Boatshed founders Neil and Mandy Chapman met customer Christoph Liedtke in London last week to present him with a bottle of champagne at St Katherine Docks.
It’s an impressive number: The average London house is predicted to cost £500,000 by the end of the decade, whilst also in the news poor Gary Linekar is facing a £500,000 pay cut to stay as Match of the Day presenter.
It was back in 1999 when Neil and Mandy realised they could not return to their old jobs after a 10 month sailing sabbatical. A dramatic rescue in the Bay of Biscay lead them to re-evaluate their lives and launch what became an international brokerage built with innovative technology.
Christoph, a professional living in central London, was obviously surprised. He said,
“I really would like to congratulate you on the business you have built; it is very impressive and inspiring how you turned your passion into a profession.”
