News & Testimonials

This is just a short note to thank you all for your help in purchasing my Regal 2700. Gibbs Boat Sales, in my opinion, offer the very best in customer service.

Although my boat was not new, but a brokerage sale their service was fantastic from the initial sale, arranging for extras to be fitted and the transport of the boat to France, nothing was too much trouble.

So to anyone considering purchasing a boat from Gibbs, I can thoroughly recommend their services.

Dear Team

Here is our view of our new boat etc

OUR NEW COBALT 24SD

In today's 'Pay more get less' society it is even unusual to get the quality that you think you have paid for.

Well hallelujah!! The US based Company COBALT boats have bucked this trend and I can confirm that this Privately owned American Company produces exactly what you pay for, which is a high quality product which does exactly what is says in the brochure.

So then, couple this with a caring Agent and you have the perfect recipe for many happy hours boating in the knowledge that you have got what you paid for and it's all backed up by a professional agent who provides an individual, caring and thorough service throughout.

Congratulations COBALT and GIBBS MARINE

Dear Paxson (letter to Paxson St Clair, CEO Cobalt Boats)

We don’t normally write letters like this but we wanted write to you personally to you to share our amazing experience of purchasing our Cobalt 24SD and the exceptional service we received from Gibbs from start to finish.

We went to the boat show in London earlier this year not dreaming of purchasing a boat, just as we had free tickets from friends but knew absolutely nothing about boats but had always aspired to own one, one day. We starting looking at the Bayliners, then move to Chaparral. The other suppliers were very slow on being able to give us a price for the model we wanted so we said we would go back to them. We then walked past the Cobalt stand and couldn’t believe the quality of the boats. We were approached by Gary from Gibbs and without any pressure we were shown all the models and fell in love with the 24SD on show. He was immediately able to give us a price, provide us with so much information as first time boaters and we were that impressed we paid a deposit there and then.

We sincerely appreciate all the effort and details that was provided by Gary and the team at Gibbs they are a real asset to your business and brand. He went way beyond providing exceptional service from our first meeting, to our sea trial, to delivering the boat to our house in Portugal. Advising us on all we needed to know to be able to enjoy our new purchase. 

We will definitely recommend Gibbs and Cobalt to everyone and we look forward to progressing to our next bigger Cobalt!!

Thank you for your excellent service and we would be grateful if you could personally extend this to Gary and the team.

"We have spent last couple of days on Lac Leman with the new boat.  It is everything you promised it would be: Fast, easy to manoeuvre & functional. It attracts attention when we are in the port as it looks so 'sleek'.  So, very happy & thanks to you all for looking after us so well!"

"Having never previously owned a boat, we attended the London Boat Show armed with research from boating magazines. We saw almost all of the boats we had selected, and having arrived determined not to buy a boat at the show, we did. We liked the Cobalt product, it sold itself, but the chaps on the Gibbs stand were informative and attentive, recognising our inexperience. It was the best decision we have made, they were fantastic at helping with the specification, arranging a course to gain a skippers license, even flares and life jackets were no trouble. Steve (personally) saw the sale through from the stand at the show, to delivery and handover, and my first fuel fill, in France, fantastic customer service."

"I had the great pleasure of dealing with Gibbs Marine during my purchase of a Regal 1900 from them at the Southampton Boat Show in September 2011, as well as the subsequent re-sale of the craft.

The experience from initial purchase and delivery, through to the subsequent re-sale was exceptional, the entire team were always on hand to help and always provided honest and sound advice throughout all aspects of the buying and selling process.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective buyer or seller."
