Amazing service from Richard, delivered on his promises in full. He represented me and my partner and our vessel in a totally professional manner. He proved to be very... knowledgable rand was able to overcome any objections made by prospective purchasers. He worked hard to get us the result we wanted and he succeeded. I tried other brokers in the past and had been very unimpressed. It was a pleasure and refreshing for Richard to have reinstated my confidence in yacht brokers.

Richard at Origin was a pleasure to deal with, and what's more, after the sale he still stays in touch and makes time to catch up. During my boat purchase, he made every... effort to keep the deal on track and get it over the line, keeping me well informed at all times. On the sale of my old boat, he was highly competitive and again made every effort to engage potential buyers. The boat was sold quickly with little effort required from me, he took care of everything. Will definitely use Richard again! Will Stevens - Pooleread more
