I got into boats in the early 80s, friends had a 18ft speedboat so I got hooked then. I have been a broker since 2003 when my Husband and I took on a Crownline dealership in Weymouth. I have mainly been a new boat salesperson up until I joined Boatshed Poole in 2011.
Owning a boat is like owning a pet its more than just a thing and seeing the enjoyment and excitement customers get from their new member of the family is really rewarding. I brought my children up around boats and I know how much they got out of it, and gave us excellent family time together.
We've had a little 14ft speedboat called Indecision, we soon sold that one and had a Phantom 18 with an XR2 on the back made for us. Today we have a safety Rib an Avon as we are involved with Powerboat racing, I'm an RYA Official and currently support Thundercat Racing.
Poole Harbour is approximately 14 sq miles and is claimed to be the largest natural harbour in Europe with loads of bays, islands and places to moor, there is also the port of Wareham, and just around the corner you have Studland and Bournemouth beaches, so many places to water-ski, fish, explore or just moor up for a picnic and a swim.
So if I can help you SELL or BUY your boat, please get in touch.
