I have literally gone from walking down the canal thinking how lovely it would be to be part of that lifestyle and community to literally living the dream , I read a lot of reviews and researched boat yards and Great Haywood Sales came out tops .

I called up interested in a boat which had sold just the day before but Mandy kept my spirits high and enthused me to stick with it ( I did not have a huge budget )

A few days later she called to say she had a boat in mind for me , well it was Erynnis who has been well looked after and is such a cool little boat (35ft) despite being a complete novice , I have navigated locks bridges not to mention Harecastle Tunnel over 4 days of cruising and have met some great people along the way too , so thanks again to Mandy who was there at the initial enquiry right the way through to viewings and handover , fab service and here’s to boat life ????????????

Dawn and I would just like to say a big thanks to you and the team at Great Haywood brokerage for the seamless purchase of our new home. You initially recommended Dawn and I to view this boat and we were not disappointed, she is a real gem and a credit to her previous owners who lovingly cherished her and we aim to do the same. We have now moved onboard and have settled in and are loving our new adventure.

Graham & Dawn Daniels, Countess Rose No2

We were very impressed with the 3D video on your website. It has really helped us to visualise the boat, every nook and cranny, in some ways it is far better than the video and it was a great tool to see how the boat flows from one area to another. We could see the angles, and got a good feel for the size.It shows the ambiance and felt like we were there, this was the main reason we booked a viewing.

I have just bought a boat from Great Haywood Boat Sales with the help of Mandy. She is excellant, and went the extra mile to ensure the sale went through on time and was always available for any queries I had. The whole process went according to plan, even in these difficult times. Thank you.

Many thanks for the info, will arrange insurance soon as. You’ve been great, and a pleasure to deal with, seeing as we are on the other side of the world. Thanks again. (Buyer)

I wanted to say thank you for your patience and understanding at the time of selling my house, it was extremely difficult for all concerned and I know I should not be here but for you negotiating skills. I have been in Great Hayward for a week now and am delighted to be here in such a quiet, clean venue and everybody I have met so far has been helpful and welcoming. Thank you again for the kindness and courtesy shown to me by yourself and staff. (Buyer)

Thank you and the team for the marketing and selling of my narrowboat. It was wonderful to meet and deal with a team who have a very professional and honest approach. You are honest in your valuations, obviously in touch with your market and competitive with your fees, what more can anyone ask. (Seller)
