Thank you for your quick delivery of the survey on "yacht", your professional and personable manner has made it a pleasure to do business with you. Mr J.R. (Devon) Westerly Konsort
Thanks for getting the survey to me so quickly, it is very detailed, to the extent that I didn't really feel I needed to speak to you on Friday. It also enabled me to re-negotiate the price sufficiently to cover the cost of the essential repairs. Mr M.G. (Cornwall) Beneteau Oceanis 351
Thank you very much for the written report, received yesterday. Thank you too for all your help and advice, it has been invaluable. Mr T.L. (Cornwall) Westerly Griffon
Thank you for your quick response and kind attitude. Mr V.L. (Russia) Ebbtide 33
Well spotted Will. I was able to get double your survey fee off the price of the yacht. Mr D.H. (Brittany) - Rustler 36 and Contessa 32
Your work and excellent communications skills with us before, during and since the survey are very much appreciated. The Survey Report is comprehensive, clear and authoritative. Mr R.W. (Warwickshire) Hardy Mariner 26
It was great that you could speak such good French as we found out a lot more about the boat. Mr A.G. (Falmouth) Olympic Adventure 47
