"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

Outside the window Seals, Swallows, Kingfishers, Ducks, Herons and Cormorants reguarly pass by. The river is tidal but the water never gets that low therefore, unlike other boats, we have never suffered from any bad smells or flies. She is a beauitful, comfortable warm home full of light and wonderful views.
She is moored in the centre of Sandwich Town. Sandwich is one of the best preserved medieval towns in England full of stunning parks, lots of dinky shops, pubs and restaurants.
