” From the outset Mads demonstrated his professional knowledge of our Dutch sailing boat, his confident, ‘no nonsense’ style immediately convinced us that he was the right broker for us. He very quickly took over the boat, ensured it was ready for sale, compiled a detailed history and advertised internationally in several languages.
The boat sold very quickly, Mads was on site throughout the survey and held the deal together whilst minor issues such as UK VAT, post Brexit were resolved.
His charges were very reasonable and we would have no hesitation in using his services again.
Feel free to ask Mads for our contact details and we’d be happy to talk you through our experience.”

”Mads recently sold our Nauticat 35 and delivered her to Sweden. I found Mads one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is extremely proactive looking for the right buyer and takes great care in selecting them. It was also good to be able to deal with the boss first hand and not just be a number on a large brokers list, would have no hesitation in using LOOMA 4YACHTS.COM again and would recommend them to anyone else.”

” In May/April 2022, Mads transport sailed my sailingyacht, a Malö 45, from Spain to Denmark. I only have positive words to say about Mads and his crew. Mads is a very experienced and competent captain and sailor. He is very reliable, responsible and takes really good care of the boat under his resposability. Also his high technical understanding and practical knowledge for repares and maintenence needed that always occurs under ways on a long distance sail, guarantees the delivery is not taking more time than absolutely necessary. Mads has kept his words and agreements, been very flexible, both in the planning phase and during the actual transport sail. Over all the best experience you could imagine. ”

Boat buyer and boat transport:
” After we sold our 36 foot sailboat we were looking for a bigger boat that could fulfill our dreams. After about 2 years of waiting, we were lucky enough that this particular boat came up for sale in Portugal. We contacted the broker, who luckily was Looma4yachts in Lagos, Portugal, who had this beautiful boat for sale. As we have not previously bought a boat abroad, we can only praise Mads Poulsen for being af professional broker in whom we had great confidence throughout the process. It was a technical transaction, in the sense, that there were several countries involved as the seller came from Sweden, we are from Denmark, and the boat was located in Portugal, – so many documents had to be drawn up. We want to say, that for our parties, it has been a very safe transaction, where the broker Mads Poulsen has provided a really knowledgeable, safe and professional transaction throughout the process.
We were also in doubt as to whether we should sail the boat home or have it transported home to our marina in Denmark. Mads stepped in and offered a very favorable solution where Mads and his team sailed it home to Denmark in record time. We, Carsten & Charlotte would like to give our strongest positive recommendation to Looma4yachts for their treatment of customers in connection with a boat trade. Really safe Process! ”

Boat sale and boat transport:
” I was firste even hesitant to sell the boat, and took some pics and uploaded to Boat24. After about a month and with having had quite a bit of hassle with particularly one buyer and overall not very many buyers lining up, plus having the boat for sale at a distance from home. I thought of how much good I had heard about Mads Poulsen.
After a brief discussion on what would be the best course of action, I felt comfortable handing over the boat and the whole sales process to Mads and sailed 500Nm to Lagos to leave the boat with him. Not only did his trained eye see lots of things that could be done to make the boat more sellable, he also undertook to actually do what was needed and took more professional pictures with most included in his fee. He also didn’t just put up the boat on one site, but multiple, and in multiple languages according to the groups that should be most interested in my kind of boat.
After about two months where Mads took care of showing it to all interested, he had also taken it to surveyor, and lifted it at a shipyard as per a new potential owner’s request, and there also had the bottom and the folding propeller cleaned that greatly eased further transport and hand-over, the boat was sold to a very nice couple. I wouldn’t have been able to reached such a good win-win for all, buyers included, without professional help and without having to spend very much time. Mads does a top-notch job and I warmly recommend asking him to help you sell your boat as well! ”

Boat buyer and boat transport
” I really enjoyed my experience with Mads buying a Nauticat 43 in Lagos. It has always been a very smooth and helpful discussion together (through around hundred emails), also facilitating the communication between the seller and buyer which was greatly appreciated. Mads is also able to deliver the boat which is a great advantage.
Trust is part of his way of working, do not hesitate! ”
