Neil and the team from Power and Sail were amazing to work with during my purchase of the Okie Dokie, it was a long process due to Covid lockdowns and time frames between the East and West coast. They acted very professionally and obtained a good result for both purchaser and vendor.
The team from Power and Sail are professional, courteous and have the ability to work through problems to obtain a positive outcome.
Very Highly Recommended.
I’m very fortunate to have met Neil and his team at Power and Sail purchasing with my co-owner a Regulator 34ss – an absolutely awesome boat!
I subsequently entrusted the sale of my Bayliner 180 to Neil from Power and Sail who together with Pete had it sold within the week.
The whole experience, both buying and selling, has been absolutely first class. Open and honest communication, great follow-up and the most pleasing aspect-Truly sincere and ongoing after-sales service
Thanks Neil, Pete, and Darcy
We’d like to say a big thankyou to Neil at the Power & Sail Brokerage.
We purchased our Meridian 34 through him back in 2018 & the process was extremely easy. Reluctantly, due to COVID restrictions stopping our return to Oz, we’ve had to sell the boat. We had no hesitation in instructing P&S to market it on our behalf. Being 9000 miles away could have made the process extremely difficult but Neil & his team went above & beyond the call of duty to get it ready for sale. We obtained a fair price &, again, the sales process went like clockwork.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Nicole, Neil, James and the whole team at Power & Sail Marine for helping us sell our boat.
Between COVID lockdowns and winter storms it was a challenging process but you guys were up to every challenge and came through with flying colours. We could not have been happier with the service and professionalism you displayed – you guys are AWESOME!!!
