Testimonials Of Our Work
"Operating a world-class marine search and rescue service requires the contribution and input of many people and organizations, all committed to the core mission of saving lives on the water. Coastwide Marine has been the primary boat broker/valuer for Marine Rescue NSW since 2011 and over this time, Coastwide Marine has played an important support role with MRNSW, assisting with the sale of our vessels as we have progressively modernized our search and rescue fleet. Coastwide Marine has always been more than willing to assist MRNSW, providing prompt, efficient and courteous service, traveling the coastline and critical inland waterways, visiting MRNSW units and working closely with our volunteers and Headquarters personnel to provide accurate valuations based on their comprehensive knowledge of the boating market, vessel condition and sales climate. With the benefit of five years experience, Marine Rescue NSW will be continuing its relationship with Jason Gribble and Coastwide Marine as our preferred boat broker of choice into the future."
Jason from Coastwide Marine has recently sold our lovely timber Italian "GOZZO" day boat. Jason advised us through the whole process from correct boat preparation, then marketing in the right manner. Which resulted in promptly finding the right buyer who we think will be a good custodian for our boat. Jason’s agent, Stuart, Manager from Castlecrag Marine showed the boat and thoroughly explained its workings to the successful buyer. Jason’s and Stuarts professional knowledge and manner assured us throughout the process. We have no hesitation in recommending Coastwide Marine to any prospective seller or purchaser of marine craft. Thank you both very much.
Marine Rescue Batemans Bay is in the process of having a purpose built search and rescue vessel constructed. When it was proposed that we appoint a Boat Broker to sell one of our surplus vessels, Coastwide Marine was recommended by our commissioner Stacey Tannos as the preferred Broker. After meeting with Jason Gribble and Dave Rowland of Coastwide Marine and discussing requirements for the sale of our vessel, we were provided with sound advice on an accurate asking price and correct marketing strategy. Several offers were then presented to us and the vessel was sold for the asking price. I am grateful for how easy they made the process and cannot describe how pleased I was with Coastwide Marine’s professionalism as a Boat Brokers working on our behalf.
I have known Jason for 3 years, since purchasing my Zeston 40 through him, and now "as we are moving back to Canada" listing our boat to sell. I have found Jason to be friendly, knowledgeable and very honest. If he tells you something about a vessel you can trust it to be true. I have been dealing with people in the marine industry for over 40 years and Jason is straight up and down compared to many who are only interested in their commission. If you are interested in purchasing or selling a vessel Jason will look after you.
I met Jason of Coastwide Marine about 10 years ago when he sourced and organized the purchase of our first boat. Since that time both Kate and I have bought and sold a further two boats with Jason. He has become a good friend of us both. His level of expertise in the boating industry and his willingness to go that extra mile for his clients has made our purchasing and selling a comfortable experience. We regularly discuss with Jason all things nautical. He always makes himself available for any queries we have. As a mate and broker we recommend him highly.
I recently purchased a yacht through Jason of Coastwide Marine. He along with his agent Stuart the manager @ Castlecrag Marine were a very helpful and cohesive TEAM. They both deserve much praise for the way the process from initial enquiry through to inspection and delivery was handled. Their timely approach along with some good advice made the whole buying process a seamless experience. I thoroughly recommend them; their professional and friendly manner will serve any prospective purchasers well.
I'd like to take a moment to say thanks to Jason and the team at Coastwide Marine. They have been looking after me for a number of years. Initially with the purchase of our Halvorsen Motor Yacht "Silver Cloud II" and then more recently with ongoing valuations and insurance. They took the time to understand our needs and offer a wealth of knowledge and honest advice based on what we required. If you are someone looking for the support of an honest, down-to-earth and professional team I recommend them highly! I look forward to our ongoing relationship.
Best people ever! Professional, helpful, supportive and cannot do enough for you. Very unusual to find 2 people in one company so good at their job. To buy or sell your boat you'd be crazy not to use Jason and Rod.
Jason from Coastwide Marine has been my broker for the last 25 years. I was a professional yachtsman with a sailing school & sailing holidays abroad and consequently I sold or bought two yachts each year. I've only ever used Jason because he achieved a good selling price with a minimum of fuss and was always very easy to deal with. Since retiring my friends and I restore older yachts and we still use the same broker. Everyone is happy with the results accomplished by his relaxed thorough professional approach. We have recommended his services to many other friends and acquaintances over many years with complete peace of mind.
Myself and my business partner were fortunate enough to come across one of Jason's listings when we were looking for a commercial vessel to purchase in order to expand our business. To put it mildly, purchasing a commercial vessel is no easy task however we were extremely surprised at how easy and straightforward the procedure was under Jason's constant supervision. He's professional, patient with excellent knowledge of the boat industry and all related requirements and regulations and most importantly a man of his word. So far we have worked with Jason for over 4 years and with his help we have purchased two commercial vessels. Whether you are looking for a private or commercial vessel, Jason Gribble is the person to talk to. Strongly recommended by everyone in our office that has had the pleasure of working with him. Once again a huge Thank you Jason!
We recently purchased our Charter boat & business where Coastwide Marine was the appointed selling agent. I directly interacted with Jason during the negotiations and sale process and found him to be knowledgeable, realistic, honest and straightforward. His easy going yet no nonsense approach assisted greatly in both parties finally reaching agreement to proceed with the sale. I would definitely recommend Jason and Coastwide Marine.
I am pleased to advise that my bank has recorded payment regarding the sale of my boat. Many thanks for the speedy settlement. Its been a bit of a wild ride finding the right buyer and I have appreciated your unfailing efforts to achieve the task. Given the state of the market, I think you did very well, and I'm pleased with the outcome. If you ever want a glowing reference I will be happy to respond lol. I wish you good fortune going forward; We are off to Ireland in 4 weeks, with a side trip to Scotland. Not having to worry about the boat when away will be calming and I will certainly drain a Guinness or two in Ireland, and some single Malts in Scotland & promise to toast you in both locations. I have appreciated your integrity and honesty throughout.
" I am very grateful to Jason of Coastwide Marine and Stuart, the Coastwide Marine agent at Castlecrag Marine, for brokering an excellent sale of my Beneteau First 31.7 in July 2022. It was a real pleasure to have such nice people to make the deal work so quickly and smoothly. Jason priced the boat accurately and finalized the sale in amazingly fast time. Pinta 11 was displayed perfectly online with great images and video. Stuart showed the boat at Castlecrag to interested parties and attended to the practicalities of the sale very efficiently and courteously. I was kept well informed every step of the short process, which made me feel good. I highly recommend Coastwide Marine as an excellent boat brokerage who make sales happen.
I bought my Beneteau from Jason on Pittwater and then sold it through him. Both experiences were easy, professional and free from any hassle. Highly recommended Jason & Coastwide Marine
I used Jason and Laurence of Coastwide Marine to sell my Steber 41 "Rathlin II located at Coffs Harbour Marina They both went above and beyond normal brokerage duties as I was working at sea in Antarctica during the sale process. The deal was not straight forward apart from me being in Antarctica as the boat was a commercial vessel in AMSA survey and the purchaser was in Broome WA. Both Jason and Laurence were thorough and professional and the deal was concluded successfully. Id highly recommend the team @ Coastwide Marine Coffs Harbour if you need your boat sold.
I recently bought a second hand boat through Jason from Coastwide Marine. He is very straightforward and dealing with him is a pleasure. The whole process of buying a second hand boat (a new process for me) was a lot smoother than anticipated.
