testimonials

we take pride in our reputation 

The in-depth knowledge of the staff at MSP Hamble, in particular Andy, smoothed the sale process and achieved a price significantly above offers I had received privately. For anyone considering selling their boat, or indeed buying one, I strongly recommend talking to MSP. They conducted the whole process of preparing, marketing and selling the boat with a gentle touch and confidence which left me comfortable that, despite the speed with which a sale was secured, I had got a good price with really no hassle at all.

The sale of our boat was successfully delivered through a combination of knowledge, experience and patience. MS&P dealt with all parts of the process from preparation through to successful conclusion. They applied the same attention and thoroughness to the broad issues as to the minutiae and let nothing slip through the net. It has not been easy navigating through the restrictions and frustrations of the pandemic, but we feel that we have been well managed and well served. Our warmest thanks to true professionals.

We asked MSP to broker our boat because they are the Hanse Specialist. From that moment on they delivered a professional, caring and highly personal service. They sold our boat in the middle of a Global Shutdown and still delivered above our red line sale price. If you want to sell your boat these are the people to do it no question!

Over the past 8 years I have dealt with de Valk, Ancasta and MSP/Hanse. The attention to detail from MSP in my recent transaction has been exceptional - Phil acted with considerable aplomb in bringing a deal together and attended to the many moving parts with consideration to all Parties. MSP demonstrated flexibility and a real "customer first" focus - in a very responsive manner. This is in sharp contrast to the uncaring handling I received from Ancasta (France) a few years ago.

Phil and Andy at Inspiration Marine / Michael Schmidt were brokers and offered after sales support for our recent purchase of a used Hanse Yacht. They were exceptionally professional when bringing the deal together and very helpful in providing after sales support. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Phil Dollin, Andy Cunningham and the whole team could not have been more helpful and professional. Lots of experience – combined with an aura of competent calm makes a purchase easy!

Dear Andy, I wanted to say how much I appreciated your assistance in selling my yacht Dragon of Wessex. Your advice on describing her and then suggesting and facilitating the remedial works to prepare her for sale all contributed to a successful outcome. Also the way Michael Schmidt and yourself continued to function as a business during the worst of lockdown was impressive. I hope Dion enjoys his new purchase as much as I did... but time for ventures new!

Selling your boat is nearly always stressful! I was hugely impressed with the team from Michael Schmidt. They were helpful in setting expectations, managed the marketing across multiple platforms and sites as well as always – 7 days a week – being on hand to show around prospective customers or answer my questions. The yacht was sold quickly and to the right new owner. Not only professional but extremely helpful, unbiased and friendly. I would use them again without hesitation – but hopefully not for a while yet!
