—– Buying or Selling your boat? —–
Long story short……..
Buying? Find the boat that YOU WANT (on the below websites) and Henry will negotiate well, look after you with all the paperwork every step with great communication.

Selling? Henry will go above and beyond for the seller (trust me, he did when I was looking at another boat he was selling), work hard to make the sale (he didn’t give up with me), answer his phone and every email (he wrote back and replied to all emails and gathered all the info I wanted without question) and he knows the market well! He gained my trust as a buyer and you would be surprised how many brokers never even replied back to me or just didn’t care! For that I’m so grateful and more than happy to refer him to anyone in the med looking to sell their boat.
