Disabled in the walking department due to a spinal trauma I can still get around the boat and sail her to wonderful anchorages and marinas.

Great stay in Brixham
Just spent 4 glorious day on board real estate. Lovely boat and Nicholas was just a phone call away for any advice or problems. Thank you Nicholas, enjoyed it so much, I am hoping to book for next year with my granddaughter .
My 8 year old son and I had the BEST time on the Reel estate. Nick couldn't have been more friendly or helpful and really went out of his way to make this trip memorable for us (Nick pretending to be the Queens Butler for my sons benefit will most probably be something he remembers forever and added to the magic of the trip for him). His instructions and advice were clear along with directions to the Marina. We will most definitely be returning every year. A new annual tradition :)
Life on the Ocean Wave, even though only docked
Absolutely fantastic time, so relaxing, boat amazing, Nick top man, always on the end of the phone, if you needed him. Brixham is like a second home to us, have stayed in many places, only place to stay in our opinion, is Real Estate. We will be back, also have to mention fantastic Marina, with very helpful staff.
Our second break on Reel Estate. We love being on the water on this lovely boat - one of the few places we truly relax! We were lucky to see the seal in the marina several times and just watched the world go by. A really good location/base for all the places we like to visit in South Devon. As before, Nick was on hand at all times for help if needed.
We had a great 2 x night stay on Reel Estate. The boat was great and Nick (the owner) was super helpful and always on hand if you needed him. Will definitely be returning!!!! *****
3 night break
Nick, the owner was on hand every step of the way. Nothing was to much trouble if there was a problem-not that there was. The boat was superb, clean and a quirky way to spend the weekend. 100% recommended will certainly book again
Stayed on the cruiser for two nights for a surprise birthday present for my partner. The boat was alot bigger than I thought and exceeded my expectations. Nick was very helpful in explaining everything we needed to know. Overall we had a lovely weekend and really enjoyed our stay
Beautiful spacious boat,great facilities,everything you need,beautiful harbour,Nick's service since contact has been 100 %,nothing to much trouble, at the end of the phone if you need him. I wanted to feel like a millionaire for a day and night for my 60th and the stay on this boat was better than I could of dreamt of.
Had a great couple of days onboard Reel Estate. The boat is beautiful and we felt super proud pretending it was ours!!! The marina facilities were great and we really enjoyed good quality family time at the location. Nick was so helpful checking we were ok, giving suggestions of what to do etc. Definitely want to stay again. Had the best sleep ever being very gently rocked all night. Can't wait until next time!
Trip to Brixham
We enjoyed a very nice stay in Brixham aboard Reel Estate. Settling in was easy and Nick couldn't have been more helpful. Will hopefully return next year.
Lovely boat in an excellent location.
What a wonderful few days we had on Reel Estate. Nick was extremely friendly and helpful and kept in touch throughout to ensure we were OK. The boat is fantastic as were the marina facilities. We loved sitting on the flybridge every evening watching the sun set. Thank you also to Nick for arranging a rib ride round the bay – my son loved the chance to drive the rib. Such a different holiday and escape from reality! I have been recommending to all my friends and family and we hope to return again soon
Lovely holiday in Brixham
My wife and I spent four nights on Nick's stunning boat. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable (bed was very comfy). Brixham marina is superb with first class shower facilities. The marina staff and the other berth holders made us feel very welcome. Real Estate is very nicely situated within the marina, with lovely views all round. Great wifi, too. The cooking facilities on board are very good but we chose to eat out. We had a lovely breakfast each morning at the Breakwater Cafe (next door to the marina) and we had some of the best fish and chips ever from Simply Fish, in the town. We didn't use our car once, the public transport is excellent, we went everywhere by bus or ferry. This was our first visit to Brixham and we loved it.The weather was glorious and everything was perfect. Communication with Nick was excellent and he is an absolute gentleman to deal with. We have used Beds on Board before and will use them again. Thanks for a great holiday.
Great weekend in Brixham
Really enjoyed our weekend on board of Reel Estate. The boat has everything you need and it was great to sit on the flybridge with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the marina. Parking was easy and the marina showers/toilets are immaculate and warm. Recommended.
Good overnight stop en route to Cornwall. Great location and Nick gave us excellent information prior to arrival. Small problem with drainage smell which I am sure Nick will resolve.
Fantastic Bank Holiday Weekend in Brixham on Reel Estate
We had a fantastic May Bank Holiday Weekend in Brixham, staying on Reel Estate for our three day trip. On arrival we gained access to Reel Estate extremely quickly and easily, the parking and access arrangements and the position in the Marina made the arrival, unpacking and settling smooth and simple. Nick couldn't be any more helpful and was available on the phone if needed anything at all but the arrangements were so clear and simple we didn't need much guidance. As we arrived in Brixham we realised that we had chanced upon Brixfest, the end of May Bank Holiday weekend festival, with live bands, street food and a fantastic fire work display which started just as we finished unpacking. We walked into town and had a lovely evening. Reel Estate is a lovely boat with a great Marine position, the marina shower/toilet facilities are very near and are spotlessly clean and constantly maintained. Brixham itself is delightful and we will certainly be coming back again next year, perhaps for the early May Bank Holiday and the Pirate Festival
3 night stay in August
We have just returned from Brixham. Nick and Jo met us at the marina and were very welcoming, informing us of everything we needed to know for our stay. Weather was excellent allowing us to make good use of the sun deck! The accommodation on board was very comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The marina facilities are very good. Our young girls absolutely loved the adventure and enjoyed crabbing off the back of the boat. Many thanks to Nick and Jo for a fantastic experience and one we hope to repeat soon.
FLYBRIDGE BOAT STAY IN BRIXHAM
Had an absolute blast with some lovely friends. The boat was fabulous for four and with the weather being so beautiful for the time of year, we took full advantage of the flybridge and donned our Ray-Bans in December. Staff and facilities at Brixham Marina were superb. Thank you to the owner Nick for all his help over the phone.
My wife and I enjoyed our 25th Wedding Anniversary on Nick's motor yacht 'Reel Estate'. We had a lovely stay on this luxurious and spacious vessel and Nick's communications were outstanding throughout. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

New Years Eve in Brixham
Had a fantastic stay in Brixham on a luxury flybridge. Nicholas and Jo Craddock (owners) were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome on board! It has given us the experience of what a flybridge boat is like and excellent location close to lovely restaurants, and we will be back again sometime to visit.
