Alex Turner

Alex is the newest member of the team and is still learning all aspects of the job. Growing up in Potter Heigham has given him exceptional knowledge of the Norfolk Broads and has helped with his boating knowledge too. He originally started his career working on the hire fleet with Herbert Woods, which has given him the all-important boat driving experience. Since then Alex has worked in the sales industry in different countries gaining invaluable experiences and developing new skills. “When the opportunity came up to work for Waterside, I saw this as an excellent chance to gain new knowledge and further my career. Whether you are selling or buying a boat, I aim to make the process smooth and stress-free, ensuring I go the extra mile to help clients.”

“Your Company Staff were very efficient in dealing with my boat sale, it was good to speak with people who knew what they were talking about. I left everything in their hands and they did everything with no problems whatsoever. My sincere thanks to you all, and will definitely use your services again when required. Thank you! ”

T Smith

“When looking to buy a New (Used) boat we knew what we needed but had little experience of the "Broads" boats. The advice and guidance received from Lynne and John at Waterside Marine Sales was invaluable. Ultimately we bought a boat from the Herbert Woods Hire Fleet - Through Lynne and John, the whole process was handled efficiently and professionally. After sales service from the Herbert Woods workshop team was equally commendable. Waterside Marine Sales | Herbert Woods have served us well, thank you! ”

Marion Whitehead and Alan Wildman

“This is the second time we have bought and sold through Waterside and each time we were treated in a friendly and efficient manner by people who know their boats. The latest sale was dealt with in it's entirety by John and Lynne who kept us up to date and dealt with the small technical problems that arose with the boat. Over the years Lynne has smoothly managed the mooring and servicing of the boat professionally keeping us up to date with any local issues that might affect the boat,”

Mr Howe
