Client testimonials

Solent Motor Yachts is unique, they don’t just list boats, they match them to clients and vice versa.  We can’t thank Derek enough for making sure we had the boat that was right for us.  The deal and sea trial could not have been easier, nothing was too much trouble.  A pleasure to do business with an honest and straightforward brokerage.  Mr & Mrs D, Hampshire

Solent Motor Yachts did a fantastic job in recently selling my Fairline Phantom 46 in a challenging market. Derek has a great deal of market knowledge and enthusiasm and is really focused on getting deals done. He is a pleasure to deal with and I immediately felt comfortable that he was giving me honest and helpful advice. I have now retained SMY to find me a new boat and Derek is doing an equally impressive job on the buy side. I would recommend SMY without any hesitation whatsoever.  Mr M, Surrey

I was extremely impressed with the service from yourselves and would highly recommend buying via you and I'm sure when I come to sell I would use you. I found the major difference between yourself and other brokers I have used in the past to be fantastic communications, you always kept me updated, I never had to chase or call for an update, you were very helpful in sourcing survey leads and other information, and the move from your place to the north was made extremely easy because of you.  Mr L, Derbyshire  

I just wanted to thank you both for taking so much time with us in choosing our next boat. We also appreciated the assistance you gave us with the whole purchase process and the subsequent help too. I have bought and sold (too) many boats over the years, but have rarely received service like this. Well done and thank you. I will be in touch when we are ready to sell this one!                        Mr W, Cambridgeshire

“Having purchased and sold four boats with Solent Motor Yachts we have found the service to be of an extremely high level. Not only has this been the case on the brokerage side but also any ongoing requirements such as maintenance and modifications have all been handled with the same levels of reliability and professionalism, leaving me with every confidence that I am able to enjoy our boats in the sun whenever or wherever we have had the chance to do so.”        Mr S, Surrey

We were delighted with the service and professionalism you provided in the course of the very prompt sale of our Targa 34, you promised us our target figure and you delivered our target plus £500.00! We have had a great season with the replacement and, in a year or two, you will be the first person we call to handle her sale.  Mr & Mrs B, West Midlands

I would very much like to thank you for an outstanding service whilst buying my boat. You were very understanding to my requirements and left no stone unturned. I look forward to our next deal together.  Mr K, Buckinghamshire

After looking at several boats at various places it was nice to meet someone who was knowledgeable, friendly but most of all, had time for us.  Not everybody can afford a yacht for a million pounds but we were made to feel like we were. I would recommend Solent Motor Yachts to anybody for honesty and service."    Mr T, Essex

Thank you for ironing out so many of the wrinkles – it has been a huge pleasure to do business with you.  Mr D, Hampshire

When I stumbled across Solent Motor Yachts Derek was immediately proactive in getting me in the right boat. The service all round from Solent Motor Yachts was over and above the norm of brokerage services. Well done Derek you deserve to do well.  Mr S, Cornwall

I would like to thank you for all your tireless support, effort and hard work in dealing with all of your customer`s frustrations and putting together what was a complicated and extended chain of deals for the part exchange of my original motor boat in a most professional way and in very difficult financial times.  Your efforts rewarded us the opportunity to move forward with the purchase from you of a fantastic next boat, which all of my family are very pleased with.  From all of us, thank you very much."  Mr E, Essex

Buying my first boat was a scary thought. I want to thank you for making it a comfortable and smooth reality. A dream come true. I am pleased I was able to buy my second boat from you and I look forward to the 3rd and 4th…                  Mr R, Hampshire

Derek, just a short note to thank you for all your efforts and careful attention in selling our boat. It has been a real pleasure dealing with you and the ideas that you had to promote the sale, along with the trustworthy and professional way in which you dealt with things, were excellent. We will be in touch when we are in a position to buy our next boat! Great service – many thanks to you and Fiona.     Mr D, Surrey
