“It was a great pleasure to deal with Nick Rice”.

I was buying a Jeanneau Velasco 43F from a distance of many thousands of kilometres, without even seeing the boat. Nick was extremely helpful, responsive and very patient through the whole process, which took a few months. Photos, documentation, surveys, transportation, insurance – nothing was a problem for Nick.

It is very easy to deal with Nick thanks to his professional yet at the same time very personalised approach. Nick’s kind assistance with each and every major and minor aspect has been highly appreciated. When the time comes to buy my next boat, I will certainly start with Quay Boats.

“Hi All, want to share my experience as a buyer from Denmark”.

From first contact by phone Nick Rice took well care of any question and request I had, delivered honest information and documentation for the boat without wrapping it up. And when I ended up flying to Jersey the boat was as promised, boat lift and sea trial was arranged professionally.
Contract through ABYA, and Quay Boats Sales took well care of delivery and lift of boat at France mainland.

My best recommendations to Quay Boat Sales and Nick Rice

To whom this may concern.

We bought our boat through Quay Boats, Jersey in autumn 2017.
We got a first class treatment and a feeling that Nick Rice took care of both parties and not as you often experience, only the selling part.
Nick Rice took care of everything from A to Z and nothing was left unsafe, a follow up after returning with the boat to our home harbour if everything was as it should be, was also done, not one but twice. A service you rarely experience.
Our best recommendation to Nick Rice and his company, Quay Boats, here both parties can feel safe.
