"The build quality and fabrics used are great. The boat handles superbly and is a joy to drive. The support from Jonathan and the factory is excellent. I asked Jonathan at Vivid Blue Marine to find me a great boat and he nailed it. I’m grateful to him.”  AW - bought a XP680 RIB-X RIB with Vivid Blue Marine

GENUINELY can’t thank you enough for all you did in selling my yacht.
Having tried a well-known Broker transferring to Jonathan at Vivid Blue Marine was chalk and cheese - an absolute delight!
Nothing was too much trouble - thoroughly professional, sensitive, caring and providing the best outcome for all parties concerned.

Hi Jonathan,


This is a big Thank You for all your efforts in selling my Sealine S25 ‘Pzazz’.

It was a great to have a broker that understands their client’s needs and was very patient with all his foibles!

A great experience and a really good marketing job and admin from beginning to end and a great set of photographs and drone video showed Pzazz at her best.


Many thanks,



(Mr. A. Brunt - Owner Sealine S25 ‘Pzazz’)

"Dear Vivid Blue Marine,

I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciated your assistance in selling Ortac my Contessa 43. What could have been a very emotional and not to say a little traumatic sale, was made extremely easy due to your attention to detail, conscientious approach and advice that you gave me before, during and after the sale. The deal was made even easier due to the client fund account that you had, making the payments from the buyer feel safe and secure. I can not commend you enough and I am extremely satisfied with the whole transaction and will pass your details on to all my boating friends.

Thank you again for your help

All the best

“I would just like to say a big thank you to Jonathan at Vivid Blue Marine,  the marketing & sale of my 6.4m RHIB was carried out in an extremely professional manner.

The sales video, carried out by an expertly flown drone was excellent. The process from start to finish was painless and I was kept informed at every stage.

I have no hesitation in recommending Vivid Blue Marine Yacht Brokers for buying or selling”.

Concerning an advertised boat - Received from a Mr. J of Cornwall

Beautifully Presented.


Had listed my Hatteras 52CMY with XXXXXXX. All they offered were photos which I took for them!


She is en route to XXXXXXX now as a trade sale against my new boat but otherwise

would have given you the listing.

In light of the recent rib sale through Vivid Blue Marina & Jonathan I’ve wanted to drop over a note to say a huge “Thank You” for the impeccable service we experienced.
Having now purchased and sold boats through you we found the whole process professional, safe, transparent and rewarding.
Upon discovering the Quicksilver 705 Activ via your Vivid Blue website we took the decision to pop along for a viewing. The possibility of owning our dream boat was exciting however, making such a large investment did bring high levels of anxiety & uncertainty with regards to the process.
Working alongside you to secure the purchase of the Quicksilver was a pleasure. You helped us every step of the way with fully transparent lines of communication and honesty, whatever challenges appeared you were always one step ahead and on hand to advise.
Any concerns we had from the outset were soon put to rest as it was clear you (Vivid Blue Marine) had all the appropriate safe guards in place to deliver on a successful, safe and transparent purchase.
Having secured the Quicksilver we experienced exactly the same level of professional service when it came to selling our Valiant 450 rib through you.
To conclude. We’ve now experienced both sides (buying/selling) of the boat journey and couldn’t have done it without your incredible support.
It goes without saying that we will be recommending you to anybody interested in buying/selling a boat in future.
Thanks again for all your help & support.

I am grateful to Jonathan Tait-Harris of Vivid Blue Marine (VBM) for his help in selling my Elizabethan 23 recently. Because of her age her value meant it would not be economic for VBM to show people over her under the normal brokerage arrangements. Instead he contracted to advertise and handle messages about her for a fixed sum, on the understanding that I would show potential buyers round. He quickly advised on the price, listed her with an admirable video, and received a number of responses. Because I was not available at a time to suit the first potential buyer Jonathan went beyond the terms of his contract and showed him round, resulting in a quick sale. Excellent service!
