What our clients say

Sale of Travis McGee

"Just finished handing over Travis to Henry, who seems keen as mustard and pleased as punch! Just a note to thank you for all your help and your wise guidance to Henry, matching the right buyer with the right boat."

Happy vendor!

Sale of Carefree mid winter - words from a satisfied vendor

It seems that the funds have cleared already, so all seems to have gone very smoothly.
Thank you so much for making the whole process so easy and for finding such a good buyer!

Compliments all round for the PTS !

I’ve spent pretty much most of the summer cruising up and down the Thames on 'Feisty' excepting compliments on behalf of the boat. Even when surrounded by some spectacular gin palaces, the PTS still gets the attention, from three lock keepers as well, which has to be the ultimate accolade, I thank you and Statement Marine for that.

BTW the canopy curtains are a brilliant idea, as too the shower.

Lee (September 2022)

Thanks to all at the boatyard !

Ella Rose looks absolutely pristine and beautiful!
Thank you very much for the updates and for the great job by all.

Adrian, Storage client (April 2022)

Most impressed with your brokerage yesterday!

And what a pleasure it was. Most impressed with your brokerage yesterday. Not the usual set-up I have encountered, far more personal and good to speak to someone who really knows her product – I can see why you are successful.

Happy brokerage client

A quick sale!

Many thanks for selling Barn Owl so quickly. It is sad to see her go but you have made the process as painless as possible.

Robert Shepherd (May 2022)

Great work on marketing and closing the sale !

Firstly, thank you. I’m sure Andy and his wife will make many happy memories on the boat and great work on getting it to market and finding him / closing the deal. You’re fantastic at what you do.


Thank you!

I just wanted to say how delighted we are with the boat. We've had several super days on the Thames, not going far but really enjoying it. As I think you may have noticed when we first met, I'm not a natural sailor but it's been great. Thanks also for negotiating the mooring.

Alison & Alistair

Absolutely LOVE the PTS24e !!

Thank you very much indeed. She is beautifully crafted and a fabulous boat. Congratulations to you on the whole team for creating such an incredible and beautiful craft.

Adrian (July 2023)

Thank you for your expertise!

Thank you so much for your expertise in selling Black Dog and what is shaping up as a successful conclusion!
I really am grateful that you have found an enthusiastic new owner.
Diana Lawler (November 2021)

Quality work executed with care and attention!

I would like to thank you for the exemplary quality, care and attention with all the works you have done. Compromises were made, but only after all the pro’s and con’s were discussed and Andrew always helped guide on what was “the right thing,” on all occasions.

Peter B. (September 2022)

A happy boatyard & storage client

I am pleased to report that Mouse made it “home” to Henley today - she performed well and looks great! Thanks for all your help!
