Customer feedback
‘Thanks again for all your help, I will not hesitate in recommending your service to anyone as you service and help has been outstanding thanks again.’
Graham and Gillian Ancient, February 2017 & January 2018

Duncan and Tracey at Fish & Duck were both knowedgable and responsive in dealing with the sale of my boat. By using their brokerage service, I was able to minimise the time spent involved in the sale, safe in the knowledge that they were handling buyer interest, viewings, the survey, and exchange and completion of contracts. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other boaters thinking of selling their boat”
