Last year I bought a boat through Paul at Boatshed, his customer service was impeccable and really can't fault the attention he gave us. Everything was covered and the boat was delivered as promised. We really are very happy and would definitely recommend him to others!

Paul's integrity and knowledge is beyond exceptional. The solidarity attention I experienced. I would 100% recommend him as a yacht broker.

Boatshed Costa Brava is owned & run by Paul Griffiths who has been selling boats in Spain for many years. Paul has a wealth of information at his fingertips and can accurately value almost any boat. He will give you realistic pricing and is as honest as the day is long. He can be trusted to be fair to both buyer & seller and will work hard to make sure that all parties are satisfied. I bought a boat from Paul’s sister company, Boasted Barcelona in 2021 and have since taken his advice on many things, including where to moor and even which restaurants to eat at. If you have a boat to sell you can be sure that Paul will do his best to find you a purchaser and if you are looking to buy a boat, Boatshed Barcelona & Boatshed Costa Brava have an extensive range of vessels to consider.

I must say that the knowledge that Paul has regarding the boats that he is selling is first class as I found out the other day when I viewed one.

One of the best brokers in the region with a wealth of knowledge and has always been extremely helpful. If you are buying or selling a boat he comes highly recommended.

[Paul Griffiths] Your professional approach and perfect communication during the negotiations and purchase process has been a breath of fresh air. Being new to the boat purchase process, I am sure that we asked some very silly questions. However, always your replies filled us both with confidence and new knowledge. I know that you went that extra mile for us to ensure the loading and lifting of the boat went smoothly. The way you must have taken your personal time at the weekend to store all of the ancillary equipment etc for the journey back to Swanwick, made the arrival and unloading a very pleasurable experience. Personal recommendations are the most effective - I have been complementing you and Boatshed to most of my friends at the sailing club. Having experienced your professional approach and personal attention to detail. Jane and I will have no hesitation reaching out to you and Boatshed should we ever think about upgrading our first acquisition in the future. Many thanks

I would like to thank you for your help and cooperation during the purchase of Shalimar. You seem like a very down to earth and hard working person............ Pleasure doing business with you.

- Darius Piliponis | Boatshed Costa Brava

This is the second boat that I have sold in conjunction with Boatshed Cost Brava. I was astonished at both the speed with which Paul & Steve sold my Targa 34 and the short leadtime arranged by Boatshed for both the survey and completion. No messing, no fuss, and the job done efficiently with complete attention to detail. Which is a credit considering that the seller, the buyer and the boat were all in separate countries. Well done Boatshed Costa Brava, and thank you for the extra effort put in to make sure that the final hand over process went smoothly.

My partner Michael Kelly and I have just bought a boat from Boatshed in Costa Brava, Empuriabrava. Paul and Steve the guy's that we dealt with we're absolutely fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. They even helped organise our moorings for the year, they are a credit to your organisation and we just wanted to show some kind of recognition for all their hard work. It has been a pleasure doing business and we are going to keep in touch with them as we will be going back to the boat in March time. Again well done on a good organisation.

- Wendy Franklin and Mike Kelly | Boatshed Costa Brava

Hi Paul. (Boatshed Costa Brava) The boat has arrived! Thank you for all your help. You have been brilliant. The boat was as described and I'm really pleased. Thank you again for all your help. You both made the process a lot easier than I ever imagined. Kind regards

- Toby Powell | Boatshed Costa Brava

Hi Steve and Paul (Boatshed Costa Brava) Thank you for the completion documents and also for your excellent service. I will certainly recommend your company to my boating friends. I felt that you were very responsive and professional and particularly appreciated the fact that you updated me each step of the way. Many thanks

- Ray Harmsworth | Boatshed Costa Brava

I can’t think of anything that you could have done better in this process regarding quick feedback and making me feel that I had your full attention during the whole process. I always felt that you were serious and made me feel comfortable that everything would be okay regarding all papers required and transport of the boat. This was my first purchase of a boat abroad, and based on the experience with you and Steve; I will do it again if the right boat is for sale. I am very satisfied with you at Boatshed Costa Brava as a broker and can warmly recommend you to anyone else. So if you ever need a reference in Norway do not hesitate to give them my phone number. Have a nice autumn… Best regards

Very helpful, lovely new owners, quick and positive decision.

Paul from Boatshed Barcelona recently sold my Windy 8000. Safe pair of hands from start to finish and completed the sale to my satisfaction in a tricky market - would definitely use again and highly recommended.

- T Garnham - September 2023 | Boatshed Barcelona

Purchased a Windy 8000 from Paul at Boatshed Barcelona. Very pleasant experience, highly recommend for any boat sales in the Barcelona area!

- Jack & Mike Whiteley - September 2023 | Boatshed Barcelona

I decided to sell my boat, a Maxi95 1977 after arriving in Barcelona after sailing from the UK. I contacted Paul at Boatshed Barcelona. Three days later he found a buyer. A week later the sale was completed even though I was no longer in the country. I was kept informed every step of the way via emails and WhatsApp. Very friendly and professional. I highly recommend his services. Thanks Paul.

I bought a boat through Boatshed Barcelona in 2021. It was a lovely boat but it wasn’t a straightforward sale and it probably would have failed if it had not been for Paul Griffiths of Boatshed Barcelona. Firstly, the survey threw up several defects, of which some were relevant and others not. A large retention was required to complete unfunded repairs and liaison with a top shipyard in the region was required. All of this was done with good grace and good humour by Boatshed and I felt comfortable that I was in safe hands at all stages. Whilst Boatshed Barcelona is paid a commission by the vendor, there is plenty of value in their services for the purchaser. For instance drawing up watertight contracts and finding a good surveyor as well as local knowledge for repair yards are all things where professional help is useful. Paul Griffiths likes to build up a relationship with his clients. It is not just sell and forget and I am sure that can be a win-win for everyone.
