A belated message to thank you all for the excellent service while providing our new boat windows. We are at present sat here in a howling gale and pouring rain, completely snug and dry and couldn't be happier. We are still trying to get used to getting up in the mornings and not having to wipe condensation from the glass, the windows are all you promised.

We wouldn’t have hesitation in recommending Channelglaze windows to fellow boaters…

We had our windows supplied, for our boat builder to fit in 1996, and wouldn’t have hesitation in recommending Channelglaze windows to fellow boaters, boat builders and others.

We had our windows supplied, for our boat builder to fit in 1996, and wouldn’t have hesitation in recommending Channelglaze windows to fellow boaters, boat builders and others. The glass was coated with a treatment that allowed rain to run off without marking or smearing, and we would confirm that it has worked effectively for the past thirteen years. Therefore we would be very pleased to allow interested customers to view our windows by arrangement with [your team] at Channelglaze.

We are very pleased with our windows, they have been much admired by other boaters…

I felt I must write to you about my windows you manufactured for me over 8 years ago. They have been a great success, far beyond my expectations. Even after more than 8 years of the gruelling use of a "Liveaboard" boat, the windows are in almost showroom condition today... It has been solely due to the high standard of materials, workmanship and the personal pride of every single operative in your factory, during the manufacture all those years ago. I am so glad, that after seeing other manufacturers, I decided that you were my choice of company. I was looking for a well-made window, with lasting qualities... Your staff were interested in giving me exactly what I wanted, and after visiting [your factory] a couple of times, you gave me the confidence to place my order with you. A big, big, BIG, Thank You! For your personal service and outstanding window design and manufacture.
