Phil Berkeley - Owner/Franchisee

- Suffolk Boatshed

Privileged as I am to work and live in the county of Suffolk I love the opportunity to be on our coast and exploring the rivers themselves. Each with their own character , the rivers penetrate our coast lending their own individual character and its a great pleasure to work on them and by them.

I have been based in East Anglia for many years and have a good working knowledge of the cruising grounds of our beautiful region from the stretches of open broads in the north to the rivers of the south and the many harbours , marinas and waterways. Our regions traditions and history and the many facets of nautical interest and a multitude of craft makes this one of the most interesting to sail or be out and about in And sitting on a quay, or talking to marina owners or sailors , is always a pleasure. I have looked after many boats over the years, a gaff rigged double ended 1924 yawl, a steel motor yacht, a narrowboat and latterly a dutch barge , whilst all distinctly different, all with different stories nonetheless all simply put....just boats and I look forward to representing owners with an equally wide range of boats in the seasons to come. I am a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster and RYA Shore Instructor with several transats logged BUT every day out and about in the region I learn something of value and interest in our boating communities and we look forward to meeting you .

Our new office is based in Woodbridge on Ferry Quay from where we conduct our business , from Lowestoft to Ipswich, on the rivers and coast. Please drop by if you are in the area.
