"Thanks to Richard, we stopped short of buying a total shocker of a boat from another boatyard and Richard found us a better, cheaper equivalent. Also being 'first timers' he and James told us about all the things we should know/buy/be aware of. Thanks for being so helpful and we look forward to a nice summer of sun and sailing (please)"
Karen Dresser, Essex

“I would just like to thank you for delivering my yacht Reverie from Sandwich to Ipswich. It was done in the most efficient and professional way at a very reasonable cost and the feed back from the passage was very useful. I enjoyed my stay on the mooring at Highway, I found everyone most friendly and helpful.”
R Parkin, Ipswich

"In October 2012, James from Highway Marine assisted me in moving my boat from Sandwich to Hayling Island. I can honestly say that I would trust him to move any boat of mine, anywhere in the world. James organised the entire trip, he supplied charts and planned for the correct tide/weather windows. He took great care over every procedure and was always fully in control. We had the perfect day and James was more than happy to have me come along for the ride, during which I was able to pick his brain on all manor of boating questions.
If I ever need my boat moving again and did not feel confident enough, or have the time to do it myself, my first port of call would be Highway Marine. Thank you so much guys for all your support in getting Paws back on to the water and a special thank you to James, who helped me move her on her first, of hopefully many journeys”.

A Sanderson, Oxford

“Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for all your help in the sale of ‘Phoenix’ and thank you for the 2 life jackets - you might see me and Jasmine going along the river in our dinghy! ;-) Thanks again.”

“James took my dutch barge Roma round the Kent coast and up the Thames to London. As well as being immensely competent he was a fine company. It was a first rate passage and his piloting/delivery was a first rate service.”
Dan Re'em, London

"I imported a boat from England to Sweden through Highway Marine Group. When investing so much time and money in your dream, you don’t want anything to go wrong - especially doing it from abroad. Richard and his team did a great job. They are very service-minded and helped me with every matter along the way, including paper work, transport etc. Above all, they are honest, straight people that care about their customers and reputation. I would definitely buy another boat from through Highway Marine Group."
Michael B. Gothenburg, Sweden.

“Just a quick email to congratulate you on the purchase of our lovely ‘Reverie’. We wish you very many happy voyages aboard her. Thanks, too, to Richard for all your help in the sale process.”
Michael & Felicia Foster

“I would like to say how enjoyable it has been dealing with yourself and your company. You are not only knowledgeable but incredibly helpful, in fact you are the first broker I have been pleased to deal with. I have always bought privately in the past.”
Neil Sutherland, Dorchester

“Hi James and Richard, I would just like to thank you for delivering my yacht Reverie from Sandwich to Ipswich and for the feed back afterwards. It was done in the most efficient and professional way at a very reasonable cost and the feed back from the passage was very useful I enjoyed my stay in the mooring at Highway I found everyone most friendly and helpful. Thank you all very much. I hope to meet you all again sometime.”
Robin Parkin

“Finally purchased the 1997 Four Winns Vista 258 for £18,500 accepting a slightly higher price because it had had a new engine so I think your valuation was spot on.”

“Thank you very much for the cheque for the sale of Mergarer. Thank you also for your help over the last few months and the speedy completion of business once an offer had been made.”
Nick Lockhart

"Just a quick note to say thanks for easing through our purchase of the yacht ‘Dreamcatcher’ with the minimum amount of fuss. Thanks also to James for the excellent delivery service of the boat from Ramsgate to Chichester.  My apologies for not organising the right wind, and for him having to motorsail for nigh on 23 hours. The boat was delivered smack on time too. Great doing business with Highway Marine – highly recommended."
Mike Nicholson

Hello Gents. Bill of sale now in the post which hopefully concludes everything. Just want to say a massive thanks for all your help. What was turning into a nightmare finished beautifully once in the hands of the Highway marine boys. Amazingly quick sale which is great for all. 
One large worry off my mind. Thanks again and see you soon. Cheers

Jim Woods, Beaumont, Essex

“If you don’t have a Pippin 20 already you may be wondering if it is the boat for you and I have been asked why I like mine. So here we go, why I like the Pippin 20 in a few words. Quite simply a Pippin 20 is the biggest small boat you can buy. By that I mean the size inside for a 20’ yacht is incredible. It has 4 berths but most owners would say it is great for 2 or 3 adults/teenagers or 2 adults and 2 small children. The beds are spacious but if you use them all four of them then all your coats and lifejackets etc. seem to be in the way at night. There is full cooking and sink facilities (double burner) and the toilet arrangement is ingenious. The loo simply slides away in the forecabin on its own plinth during the day. The plinth keeps it at just the right height and it slides out for use with maximum headroom and legroom. With the use of an optional curtain door this gives a spacious and totally private loo. If you want to use the double V berth at night the loo can be moved to a second plinth opposite the keel box which again gives maximum headroom and legroom in use. Way better than trying to cram an unusable small heads in a little boat. Headroom is excellent for a little boat, five feet at the hatch and storage is plentiful. One of the cleverest bits of the design is the use of the forecabin during the day. The coach roof extends forward of the mast to give good headroom in the first part of the forecabin. This allows the bed cushions to be repositioned into two very comfortable single chairs facing each other across the boat and this in turn takes pressure for space off the main cabin seating. Too many small boats treat the space in front of the mast as a permanent double bed making the small main cabin cramped during the day. The main cabin is very spacious due to the boat being very wide (8’) and the side decks being very narrow. It is possible to sit seven adults in the two cabins in comfort which is amazing for such a small boat. The narrow side decks are still wide enough to make your way forward on deck should you need to and are a way better compromise than the common small boat approach of sending the guard wires over the cabin roof and omitting side decks altogether. The lifting keel is simple and easy to maintain at home and the boat can take the ground with the keel raised with only a slight heel. The general build quality inside and out is superb with everything being made by hand in the one workshop in England, the upholstery in particular stands out as being as good as the best. Power is by outboard, 6hp is all you need. An outboard well puts the power in front of the transom hung rudder for superb control in ahead or astern and keeps the prop in the water in a seaway. This arrangement also allows for easy motor sailing on either tack if you are in a hurry. And what makes all this so good is that it only weighs 850kg and 1200kg on its road trailer ready to tow by just about any family car so you really can keep it at home over winter and do all those maintenance jobs.”
