Our customers are really important to us. As boaters of over 25yrs ourselves, we understand the stress when things go wrong or you have to hand over your beloved boat to strangers for work to be done and you wonder if they'll treat it with the respect you would yourself. Here's what some of our customers say.

Steve and Ann Woods (May 2024)

I’ve never seen the roof with such a shine on it. I’m now very worried about sharing locks with anyone on holiday in case the paintwork gets damaged. We both thought the finish is better than when the boat was brand new! Thank you for the excellent interior clean too. We will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks. Thank you again

Jim Scott (Feb 2024)
I did manage to see the boat before the dock was flooded.
I was well impressed with the standard of workmanship and pleased with the job.

Denis Tiplady (June 2023)
Just to let you know that almost every single day I am getting comments about how good the boat looks. Again, thank you both for the hard work you have put-in for making my boat look great!

Ray Gill (October 2022)
Thank you for the marvellous re-paint of Ontario-she looks like a brand new boat!! A really high quality job and please pass my thanks to Bob and the rest of the team.

Nick and Joy Freemantle (September 2021 - re-paint )
I have to say we were both delighted with the look of the boat when we came to view (including the smashing new door Bob created); it is really special thanks very much to you both.

Sue & Ray Humphreys (December 2020 - Bob fabricated a  new semi-trad style stern in place of an open deck)
Fantastic job absolutely love the work done on the boat, it will make a great difference when we are on board for several months at a time.  

Nigel Booth ( September 2019)  
I have had the pleasure of having some pretty major welding and fabrication work carried out on my boat by Baxter's Boat Yard. I have about 35 years of welding and fabrication experience myself but didn't have the time or place to do the work. To get to the point, I am more than impressed with the quality of work and friendly service received. A new front deck, front cabin bulkhead and gas locker bulkhead, amongst other things. Great workmanship by all involved. Thanks.

Honor Elliott ( August 2018)   I love it!!!!! so much!!!!!! you are amazing! went above & beyond to be helpful and flexible. absolute pleasure to deal with and I'm chuffed to bits with the new bathroom.

Debbie Frankland (May 2018 Bob took the engine out, fitted a new gear box & cam belt, re-aligned the engine.)

 What a pleasure to cruise... she is magnificent... the engine is so much sweeter, she moves her little ass a lot faster and has a better tick over. Reverse... well what can we say... amazing!

(Wendy Sibley (April 2018)

Had my boats hull completely replaced at Baxters. They have done a fantastic job, they have been really helpful nothing has been too much trouble. I would recommend their services, Beks and Bob, thank you so much!

Russ Phillips (Sept. 2017)

Good, friendly, honest boat service.

Tamzen Moulding (Feb. 2017)

''I have had a lot of work done at Baxters over the past year. They are very experienced and I found them to be friendly and professional. The work that I had done covered many different aspects including blacking, rust removal, refitting the stove and work on the engine, as well as fitting a skin tank. All the work was to very a high standard and completed on time. If any problems were found Baxters would discuss the best solutions with me and were always willing to answer any questions.''

Liz Crabbe (July 2017)

''We had discovered a major water leak on the boat and called the Boatyard for assistance. From the outset Beck and Bob reassured us that they would be able to help resolve the problem and just to get ourselves to them. Bob took about five minutes to detect that we had a split Calorifier. They sorted out water supplies for us overnight and the next day Bob expertly dismantled the boat to get the Calorifier out. They even gave us an electrical hookup whilst this was going on. Also, Beck provided a quote and report for our insurance company. All in all we cannot praise them both enough. A really helpful, friendly, knowledgeable team who we anticipate we will use again.''

Sarah Hunt (Feb. 2017)

''This boatyard was perfect for us as new boaters. The owners were helpful and went the extra mile to make sure everything went smoothly. I have no hesitations in recommending them!''

Julie Woods (Dec. 2016)

''The boat looks lovely we are really pleased with it and we managed to get it back without scratching the paintwork ! Great job and no mess left behind to clear up!'' 

Wallace Stephen (Aug 2016)

The boat looks great! You are all terrific, thanks so much! Really helpful!
