Hi Mike and James 
Ray and I would like to thank you for all your help in selling EVO, you took a lot of stress away from us at this difficult time. 
We felt you went above and beyond for us. 
Angela and Raymond W - Vendors of Hunter Legend 36 'Evo'  
This was my first time buying a yacht and I cannot recommend Barbican Yacht Agency highly enough. 
Having been a surveyor in a past life, James talked through all the points raised in a previous survey with me when I came to view the boat, this was beyond transparency you would expect and I felt very reassured and confident to buy the boat. 
Both Mike and James were always happy to answer any questions I had during the sales process and have been very accommodating after the sale with berthing arrangements which was a great help. 
I couldn't be happier with the boat and they even bought me an ice cream to seal the deal! 
Kind regards 
Daniel S - Buyer of Contessa 35 'Intuition' 
Mike and James at the Barbican were so helpful. 
They understood our situation and helped us to navigate the purchase last year, and sale now of our vessel with no pressure. 
They calmly guided us and negotiated with the other interested parties and nothing was an obstacle for them, they took it in their stride with all their experience in the business. 
Their calm and reassuring manner is just what you need when going through the process of buying and selling your vessel.

Thank you for the quick transfer of the money which I confirm has been received in my account. 
And a big thank you to you and James for your extremely helpful and knowledgeable work in selling Fioreun. You have been a great support and have worked tirelessly through all the complications (from Covid, Brexit and other sources). I am very grateful, and would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone looking to sell a boat. 
All the best, 
Alan F - Vendor of Jeanneau Sun Legende 41 'Fioreun' 
Dear James and Mike 
I can’t thank you enough for finding a purchaser for Tahoma. 
It was not an easy boat to sell but you succeeded in a short time where two other brokerage companies had failed. 
You kept me informed throughout, even when there didn’t seem to be a buyer around the corner and helped to keep me optimistic. 
Previously when I purchased 'Lady Deanne' (A Larger Marine Trader 40 Europa Trawler Yacht) from you, you both went the extra mile to help me with the purchase, even to moving the washing machine for me! 
You really are an exceptional Brokerage team!. 
A big thank you. 
Best Regards 
John McB - Vendor of Island Gypsy 32 Trawler Yacht 'Tahoma' 
Dear Mike and James, 
A quick line to thank you for your remittance for ‘Hullabaloo’ and also for the very efficient and professional manner in which you and James handled the marketing and sale process. 
I felt totally confident that you would deal with potential purchasers well and was impressed by the way you put the sales particulars together. I am sure that finding a buyer within ten days is more than just good fortune. 
Many thanks, 
Michael K - Vendor of Westerly Storm Cruiser 33 'Hullabaloo' 
Dear Mike & James 
Just a note to thank you very much for the highly professional service we received from you resulting in the sale of our boat. 
We appreciated your friendly, yet thorough and efficient approach and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. 
Best regards, 
Roy & Jill T - Vendors of Moody 346 'Tina Louise' 
Just a brief note of heartfelt thanks for your handling of the sale of Cassie. You made it a relatively stress free process and I was pleased with the short time between putting her on the market and the completion date. 
All the best for the future. 
Peter D - Vendor of Westerly Tempest 31 'Cassie' 
Hi Mike 
I wanted to write to thank you for your work to enable us to buy Mr Toad. 
I thought the service, patience and thoroughness of you and your company was excellent. From my point of view, you were always very knowledgeable and helpful on all issues, which made it a lot easier as a buyer to have confidence and to move forwards. 
At the final transfer, it was great to have all the documentation put together in such an organised fashion, I really appreciated that. 
We did manage to get the boat to Portsmouth on Sunday. We went through the Sutton lock at 0745, and got into Port Solent at 2030, so about 12.5 hours. Managed to keep up 11 to 12 knots most of the way, a bit more in some of the flatter stuff. Boat went well. 
Look forward to bringing it down to the West again in future summers. 
Thanks again. 
Paul Mc - Buyer of Grand Banks 42 'Mr Toad' 
Good morning Mike 
The money transfer arrived safely in my account on Saturday afternoon- many thanks. 
Penny and I have been very pleased with the excellent service you and James have given us during the sale of Sky Song, many thanks to you both 
Kind regards 
Bob and Penny D - Vendors of Moody 336 'Sky Song' 
We began looking for a yacht in February 2019 and found three that met our Spec. at two Brokers in Plymouth. We met Mike Harkness at Sutton Harbour Marina who took us to view Spellbound in the Marina next to the Brokerage office. 
It was a crisp cold day but the yacht heating was on and the boat fully prepared for a thorough inspection with Mike answering all of our questions straightforwardly and accurately. 
The other two inspections on the same day with another brokerage firm were onto cold, damp, unprepared boats which was a different experience entirely. 
We decided to buy the Barbican boat and arranged a survey and sea trial through Mike. The survey involved Mike taking the yacht to another Marina for the lift out and also re-locating the yacht for the sea trial – Mike’s experience as a yachtman that day was particularly helpful to my son and I who hadn’t sailed for a number of years and were rusty so the trial was another success. On deciding to purchase, the deposit and payment arrangements were straightforward, unstressed with Mike being a pleasure to deal with. Mike even helped with getting the Life Raft serviced in time for our voyage back to the Solent as well as accommodating chandlery deliveries. 
If and when we look for another yacht, I’ll certainly contact Mike and have no hesitation in recommending him and his Brokerage to friends.

Good morning, James and Mike, 
First, I can acknowledge that the proceeds have been received in our account very promptly, Thank you. 
But may I also thank you for handling the sale of our boat so efficiently. You were very attentive and active throughout, and the sale was much quicker and simpler than we expected. For this we are both very grateful.  
You have a good operation at the Barbican and I am sure it will go from strength to strength. We wish you the best. 
With kind regards, 
Peter Evans - Vendor of Moody 376 'Arun of Dart 
Hello Mike, just an update for you and the previous owners if you could tell them.  
Aran of Dart is safely in Bangor, Northern Ireland arriving Friday afternoon after a trip marred by gale force winds which forced us to call into Arklow ROI. She handled marvellously and is a real pleasure to sail.  
Thank you Mike for your assistance during this process. 
Regards Mark 
Mark L - Buyer of Moody 376 - 'Arun of Dart' 
Hello, and greetings from Finland 
Thank Rob for a great boat, and all the tools he left on board. Everything worked very well on the trip back to Finland via the Kiel Canal. 
Weather was good. The trip took us 25 days in total. 20 sailing days. Only 1 day at the dock for bad weather. And couple of rough sea days to keep things interesting! 
Thank you! 
Petja Högman - Buyer of Norseman 32 Motorsailer 'Farthingale'
