Jeanneau Sun Rise 34

Ronan Beirne of Leinster Boats & Network Yacht Brokers Dublin was recommended to me by a fellow yachtsman for selling my yacht and I do not regret it. From the beginning I found Ronan to be honest and open with a delightful air of integrity which I felt was very much to the advantage of the sale of my boat. During the very difficult period of the current pandemic he worked tirelessly to show my boat to best advantage and he played a vital role in the eventual sale for which I thank him.

We bought a new boat from Leinster Boats Network Yacht Brokers Dublin and sold our own with Leinster Boats. Ronan was fantastic in both transactions. Helping buyer and seller get to a sale with a feeling of security around it. Able to organize lift-outs and technicians to resolve any snags. Willing to meet on evenings and weekends. A very good experience as purchaser and vendor.

NYB Dublin sold two boats for me in the last 3 years. Ronan made it a very easy process, fast sales at good prices and sound advice along the way. Your personal and responsive style made the sales much easier than I expected.

Following the successful sale, I want to say thank you for excellent service throughout. In a difficult market your enthusiasm never wavered. You brought various viewers to see the boat until you found the right buyer.

When the potential buyer hove into view, your tenacity and open manner of dealing with the issues arising brought us to a happy conclusion. In particular your level of service and ability to maintain a one-to-one service that you are able to provide. For example arranging and facilitating the connections for viewings.

You have an excellent networking with other brokers here and in the UK which broadens your reach beyond the local market. Well done and thanks once again.

Many thanks for a job very well done. We know some of the work put in but we know also that there was a lot more behind the scenes.

Now that the sale has completed, I just wanted to thank you again for moving the boat on to her new owner before winter set in. I appreciated you looking at my boat through a buyer’s eyes and your guidance on presenting a race boat for sale. You skillfully cajoled buyer and seller to a price which both of us could live with and tactfully managed the completion process against a ticking clock. Well done.

Dehler 34 CWS

I recently purchased my Dehler 36CWS from Leinster Boats/NYB Dublin. I dealt with Ronan and my experience was of exceptional service and attention from day one. He has an exceptional knowledge of the boat scene and the yacht market in Ireland and across the UK. The boat needed a lot of TLC and being a sailor himself, Ronan set realistic expectations of what was required and found solutions to complex problems we came across. Correspondence was quick and efficient, and we were seamlessly guided through the sales process. As we were located many miles from the boat, Ronan went out of his way to get additional photographs and videos at every opportunity with regular visits from himself to the boat. For me, it was that communication and going the extra mile which is what sets him apart from other brokers.

In addition to this, Ronan also provided us with a list of local surveyors, arranged for the boat yard to have the boat craned out for survey and put back in. He also arranged for all paperwork and the boat inventory to be present and correct. One final nice touch was introducing us to the previous owners on handover day. I would highly recommend using Leinster Boats/NYB Dublin when thinking of buying or selling a yacht.

We bought our second-hand J/80 boat from Leinster Boats Network Yacht Brokers Dublin. Ronan was fantastic in the reception, three of us came over from the Netherlands for inspection and explanations. He helped pick us up and take us to the airport and guided us to an enjoyable purchase with a safe feeling around it. Able to organise our boat on a RoRo transport from Dublin to Rotterdam and took all the logistics off our hands. Like a host, he took extensive time for us to inspect the boat, answer all questions, visit Dublin, have an Irish lunch, a Guinness beer and after a fine negotiation, a handshake. A pleasure and very good experience as a buyer to do business with him. I can recommend him to anyone!

Hanse 342

Ronan Beirne of Leinster Boats recently sold my Hanse 342 for me and I was delighted with the attention and service Ronan provided to me and the professionalism with which he runs the Leinster Boasts Brokerage.

When I first asked him to put my boat on his brokerage, he visited the boat and provided very useful tips in preparing the boat for inspection by potential buyers

Within a month of listing, Ronan had shown the boat to a number of potential buyers and received a couple of offers for me. A sale was concluded – including completing all the necessary paperwork including Registration transferring the ownership in the Ships Papers etc etc – all of which Ronan attended to on behalf of myself and the new owners.

Leinster Boats Brokerage is a member of Network Yacht Brokers and Ronan has immense knowledge of the marine brokerage market both in Ireland, Europe and the U.K., and I am delighted to recommend him to all potential sellers and buyers of boats – whether the boats are large or small.
