Dehler 34

"Having enjoyed the experience of buying my Dehler 34 through the IMG group, I chose their brokerage to sell the boat, even though I am based on the East Coast. Both Phil Dolin and Andy Cunningham were very professional, helpful and kept in regular contact securing a sale at a decent price and then kept me informed at all stages. The whole experience was very easy and without stress, which is more than I can say for my previous boat sales. Their knowledge of the boat was useful to the buyer and helped make for a very easy transaction. I would have no hesitation recommending Inspiration Marine / Michael Schmidt."

Hanse 458

"This is our second new boat from Inspiration Marine Group. We were delighted with our first boat and the Hanse Brand, but the real reason for buying another Hanse was the amazing service from Phil Dollin and the whole team at IMG. Their professionalism, patience, care and attention to detail in everything they do is outstanding. Buying anything in 2021 with Covid, Brexit and extended lead times has been a challenge for all of us. IMG took all of this in their stride without any fuss and without blaming others! If you are thinking of buying a new boat go and meet the people at IMG first, the Hanse will sell itself, but it’s the people who will make the difference.."

Hanse 418

"Overall, we had a very good experience buying a new boat from Inspiration Marine (as well as having help selling my old boat - that went like clockwork). I know of two others who bought new at the same time (a different brand, not connected with Inspiration Marine). It was hearing their stories that confirmed what we’d suspected when we placed our order, that we’d have struggled to find a more professional company to buy a new boat from! The pandemic presented challenges for all suppliers, so no company escaped these. What made the difference is how those challenges were dealt with and how we as customers were treated. Inspiration were there for us right the way through and that enduring commitment was noted and very much appreciated! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them."



"I have a Moody DS45 and got in touch with Inspiration Marine Group for some service assistance over the last 12 months. The level of care and attention has been genuinely exceptional and I would highly recommend them. The people always go one step beyond and are a real pleasure to deal with."


HANSE 418 

"I can highly recommend the team around Phil Dollin at Inspiration Marine at Hamble Point Marina. If you want to buy a Hanse or Hanse Group boat in the UK you are in good hands. We acquired a new Hanse 418 at the 2017 Southampton Boat Show from Inspiration after reviewing and test sailing a number of boats on the South Coast. We chose the Hanse partly because of the quality of this dealership as we knew we needed the after sales help. My wife and I were complete newbies when it came to sailing and boats. I have to say that it was a very pleasant experience from start to finish. The degree of advice Phil gave us on the sailing we were going to do and how that impacted boat choice was very welcome and clearly based on years of experience. He talked us out of a lot of the options we thought we needed and we ended up with a better boat as a result.

When buying new you need a good boat and a good dealer. Importantly when working with this team you get much more than a boat purchase. After the sale when Andy Locke takes over, he carefully plans the delivery and commissioning to fit in with your schedule and extras and needs and looked after us in all areas also arranging a full introduction to the boat and all its systems with an Inspiration engineer who is usually the engineer who actually commissioned your vessel and knows her best. This means you’re getting knowledgeable technical assistance for a long period of time. A few small things that had not been completed or that we requested as extras were easily sorted out within hours of our request even months later. It helped that we stayed local after commissioning but this really is great customer service. Andy knows and uses the best local companies for certain aspects (canvas work, electronics and engine commissioning etc) but takes overall responsibility. Oh and the 418 is a pretty good boat too".


"As for quality of customer service, this is my seventh new boat in twenty years and Inspiration Marine are head and shoulders above the rest...including Princess Motor Yachts, although that's a close one!"


Hanse 388

"We’re a bit late to the party, but have only just read about your win of Hanse Dealer of the Year, many many congratulations!!

We can definitely say that you and the team have given us the best experience possible in purchasing our ‘dream’ yacht & we can’t thank you enough.

Kind regards from two very happy Hanse yacht owners!"

Hanse 505

"I have owned a Hanse 505 for 4 years (purchased through Inspiration after designing layout and configuration) and from the start placed her in the care of Inspiration who through their team of efficient and personable staff have given a service that belies belief be it sailing in Scotland or the South Coast.

I can’t recommend them highly enough for their post sales care and attention or what I call Inspiration Yacht management & services.

They have dealt with winterisation, equipment replacement and repair no matter where I am sailing in the UK.

To buy a yacht which is our second biggest investment after our home, in normal situations, the no-nonsense professional care and efficiency that they provide is exemplary."


Hanse 385

"We purchased a new 385 last year and would like to register our appreciation of the UK agent Inspiration Marine. While any problems we had with the boat were minimal and mostly self inflicted, Inspiration were brilliant throughout. Great attention to detail during fit-out and then general support and interest once we took possession. In particular they listened to us, understood our requirements perfectly and offered advice and suggestions as appropriate.

The boat itself is a delight and very quick, particularly close-hauled if sailed with purpose.  We think it slightly underpowered in light winds but will be rectifying this with a Code O and gennaker to supplement the furlstrom. In our view, if you are going to do this you need a dyneema spinnaker halyard. We have had it out in a decent blow and found the boat to behave beautifully, even at 14knts through the water! A wonderful boat, an inspired agent. What could be better?"

Hanse 445

"We love our 445 which is now based in Lefkas. 

Buying her was the best boat decision we ever made especially as we weren't looking for a new boat at the time – a decision made all the more enjoyable by the support from Phil, Andy, and all the team at Inspiration Marine throughout the commissioning process and in the years since then."
