The service I received was exemplary: The skipper was excellent in all aspects - he handled a weather-related delay well, kept me up to date throughout and even fixed a few items that required attention. I would have no hesitation to use Halcyon again and would happily recommend you to others.

Lagoon 400

It is extremely rare to find a company in any service industry that performs to this level; not only sailors of the highest calibre, they also looked after our floating home with a level of care I had not expected, gave generously of their time and considerable expertise, went above and beyond in all aspects and were a pleasure to spend 10 days with. They made our 1000nm trip a truly memorable experience. If you are looking for quality, use Halcyon, you will be delighted

I cannot recommend Halcyon Yachts highly enough, particularly if you would prefer your yacht be delivered with a personal touch and some valuable, tailored RYA training along the way.

The experience I gained by using Halcyon Yachts and crewing for their Skipper has been priceless, (and far cheaper than road haulage). I’d recommend them without reservation.

Najad 440

Thank you for a well organized, professional delivery of our new Najad 440 yacht. It was difficult to leave our lovely new yacht in others hands but the skipper and crew were extremely competent and did an excellent job... The yacht arrived safely and the crew left it in great condition. Halcyon Yachts more than proved to be an excellent choice for the delivery, their reputation is fully justified.

The skipper and crew were very personable and professional, checking all the aspects of the boat for safety. They sent me regular text messages indicating their passage which was very comforting. They made a video of the trip and sent us a link which was a superb touch. The service provided by Halcyon Yachts was excellent and we would have no qualms in recommending the company.

Delighted with the delivery. The crew were excellent, good-humoured and good company. They kept us informed all the way and looked after the boat as if it were their own. She was immaculate when I came out to meet her. I always like to give comprehensive feedback and if I thought there was room for improvement I'd say, but I can't think of a thing. I do and will continue to recommend you.

What a fantastic trip and what a great crew you provided; they excelled in their respective roles and really did Halcyon proud. The Skipper is incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and with his friendly, but firm guidance, I learned a lot, not only about sailing, but a lot about man-management. The Crew was also so, so proactive around the boat... Many, many thanks.
