Client Testimonials

Route:

Corfu to Hamble

Yacht:

Elan 333

It is really good to have Jessie back in the UK and we are very impressed and more than grateful to the skipper and crew for the skill and diligence in sailing her from Corfu. That would be impressive enough, but you also effectively sorted out several technical problems at the same time. Many thanks!

I rarely rave about a service but on this occasion. Halcyon provided great contact from the first contact through to delivery. Friendly and supportive with great communication and customer focus. Halcyon worked hard to understand my needs and tailored a service to provide exactly what I needed. This was a first for me and throughout Halcyon responded to my questions and concerns. They provided a crew that were competent, caring and great company. Very impressed with customer care, respect for the boat, a passion for the boats condition, willingness to involve the owner, and a real drive to keep the costs down.

Many thanks again for Halcyon's help and professionalism. Our skipper and crew were great company and highly experienced which gave us confidence in going offshore. They gave lots of useful advice in advance of the trip, during the passage and have kept in touch afterwards too. I would not hesitate to recommend Halcyon Yachts to other yacht owners.

We wanted our boat taken from Fowey, Cornwall to Lagos, Portugal. Halcyon Yachts provided an excellent service. Our allocated skipper was well qualified, unfailingly polite and took great care with our boat. He communicated with us every day, keeping us informed of any events on the trip. The boat was clean and tidy on arrival. We would not hesitate to use the services of Halcyon yachts again and would certainly recommend them to anyone with a need for a yacht to be delivered.

Yacht:

Beneteau Oceanis 40

Our skipper and crew were the best! I'm a happy customer... I enjoyed joining them for the last leg. The skipper did a great job with the diesel bug and got the boat there in one piece. He's also a great cook and fine sailing companion.

Route:

Vilamoura to Poole

Yacht:

Beneteau 393

I was very impressed with the skipper and crew... The yacht delivery was carried out in a truly professional manner, giving me a daily position... When I visited my boat on the day that she arrived in Poole, she was in immaculate condition, everything very clean and shipshape above and below decks, indeed several boat owners on the pontoon remarked how fantastic she looked! I would have no hesitation in recommending Halcyon Yachts.

Hamble to Ramsgate

Yacht:

Hunter 232

I cannot praise Halcyon Yachts highly enough for their efficiency and professionalism while delivering my yacht from the river Hamble to my new berth in Ramsgate. Communication from the first contact was outstanding and having decided that I would like to be part of the voyage I must again emphasise the professionalism that the skipper showed throughout my time with him on board. I would not hesitate in recommending Halcyon Yachts and will definitely use their services again should I need to move any boat to unfamiliar waters. Many thanks.

Brighton to Hamble

Yacht:

Fairline Targa 38

The skipper was very professional in ensuring the boat was ready to set off... Being a complete novice he was happy to provide instruction and answer any question I had as we made the passage. Particularly helpful was his calm instruction as I made my first attempt at berthing her as we arrived at the marina. He was also great company! They also turned round a stunning video within 24 hrs so I can share the trip with friends and family. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Halcyon Yachts again in the future.

Thank you so much, I would have no hesitation in recommending Halycon Yachts to other boat owners requiring a yacht delivery. The Skipper and Crew did so much more than just deliver our boat from A to B, they gave of themselves and are a credit to your company and the industry as a whole... These Guys aren't just good they are Olympic!

Lymington to Swansea

Yacht:

Sealine 410

I'm delighted that I chose a sea delivery and even more delighted that I chose Halcyon Yachts to do an assisted delivery with me! It was a fantastic experience that I will always remember. The skipper was great company, extremely professional but with a great sense of humour which on a long passage also helps to make it fun. I will not hesitate to recommend Halcyon Yachts and extol the virtues of sea delivery.

Peter Beales

Route:

Dartmouth to Conwy

Yacht:

Rustler 31

We had a great time and learnt far more from the skipper than either of us ever expected to on the trip. Halcyon were extremely professional to deal with and communication and organisation were excellent, no surprises at all. The delivery was safe, quick and very cost effective. Its opened up new options for us and if we need a hand in future to move a boat with or without us onboard, we will not hesitate to use Halcyon in future. Very pleased all round.

Jersey to Port Solent

Yacht:

Hallberg Rassy 352

Halcyon Yacht successfully carried out a back to back delivery of a friends motor boat from Hayling Island to Jersey and the return journey to Port Solent with my Halberg Rassy 352. The delivery was carried out at short notice and without incident and the boat was left clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation in using the services of Halcyon Yachts again should the need arise.

Mike Backhurst

Route:

Hamble to Gillingham

Yacht:

Beneteau Oceanis 393

I spoke to Pete and had a lengthy discussion about what was required and informed him that I wanted to be on board for the delivery, nothing a problem. Even though I'd had no response from any other company, Halcyon would have won my business on sheer professionalism, promptness of response, flexibility, competitiveness of quote and customer care. I wasn't their biggest or most important customer for sure, but they made me feel that way, that counts for a lot, they cared. Keep up the great work Halcyon! I'll absolutely be using you again.

I was truly impressed with the service I received from Halcyon yachts. The skipper was highly knowledgeable and competent but also relaxed and friendly. The first mate was also very competent and friendly. The trip from Falmouth, Cornwall to Essex was a great experience helped massively by the expertise of the skipper and crew.

I can’t thank you enough for all that you guys did in transporting and looking after my yacht over the last 2 months. Not only have you guys made it a wonderful experience, but it has been great fun as well! The Skipper was awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him. I trust him immensely with our boat and the crew are great guys too.

James Coe

Falmouth to Milford Haven

Yacht:

Prout Snowgoose

We met the skipper and were reassured by his professional attitude and his pertinent questions regarding our yacht. He was affable and easy to deal with. Expenses were spot on as expected and in fact due to the crew sailing her more than expected the diesel bill was lower. Overall we were more than impressed with the ease of the whole transaction and should the need arise would use Halcyon Yachts again.
