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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The crew were highly experienced and treated the boat with respect and care. The skipper was highly professional, exceptionally experienced and great company. By the time we reached Portavadie the boat was in better condition than it had been when we left. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Halcyon to anyone who might want their investment looked after and sailed with professional competence.

I was a little uneasy giving the keys to our boat to complete strangers as most people would be, but from the initial contact through to handover the professionalism of Halcyon Yachts was second to none.

Good contact and pre-voyage support from Halcyon Yachts. Our owner assisted skipper had a great deal of experience and brought us safely back from Holland. He was also extremely patient and never seemed to tire of all our endless questions which meant that we not only had an enjoyable journey but we also learnt an enormous amount about passage making and our new yacht in the process.

Halcyon Yachts are a very professional company, the Skipper and Crew were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The first inspection on 'Azygos' by the Skipper brought to light a couple of small problems which he advised on how to rectify. We highly recommend this Company.

Prompt and informative dialogue on planning and pricing. Appointed skipper kept me fully informed of plans at all times. Particularly impressed with Yellow Brick technology allowing me to track progress of boat. Trip accomplished quickly and with no drama. Boat left exactly where requested and in very good order. An impressive level of service!

Richard Lewis

Netherlands to Wales

Yacht:

Hallberg Rassy 37

From the 1st quotation through to the final sign off with the delivery skipper, I have found the company to be outstanding. The quotation was competitive, but more importantly for us, was to know that our Yacht was going to be looked after. The yacht was checked before leaving and fully cleaned and checked again on arrival, before the handover. The delivery crew consisted of 3 qualified Yacht masters, and all 3 were extremely professional, pleasant and very helpful. 10 out 10 for all round quality of service. I would highly recommend this company.

Halcyon Yachts was recommended to me and has proved to be every bit as good as suggested. The service from initial contact to final delivery has been efficient and professional, with regular updates on position during the delivery. The yacht was left in very clean and tidy condition with a full log of the passage. Very pleased and can recommend Halcyon Yachts without hesitation.
