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.

Halcyon Yachts provided an outstanding first class service for me when they delivered my HR352 from Holland to N. Ireland. Everything was top class from the initial contact, right through to hand over. 10 out of 10! Thanks Halcyon!

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.

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.

Thank you for your fantastic Job! The delivery was perfectly planned and each day I get an info from the skipper. Many thanks to the skipper and the rest of the crew! They left the boat better and cleaner than they get it. The next delivery will be yours!

Chatham to Chichester

Yacht:

Beneteau Sense 43

The skipper was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and great company. We are experienced day sailors, but were nervous about doing our first 24 hour passage through busy waters. He encouraged us to do as much and we were comfortable doing, and we learnt a lot with him on board. This is our second experience with Halcyon Yachts and would not hesitate using their services again.

Antonia Bradford

Hamble to Gibraltar

Yacht:

Island Packet 380

The delivery of our Island Packet 380 from Hamble to Gibraltar was carried out in a very professional manner with any risks of bad weather being avoided. The foremost intention of the skipper and crew was to get the yacht to its destination in a better condition than when it set off... I went along with the team as an inexperienced day skipper and by the completion of the passage my confidence in skippering the Yacht with my wife is now 100% thanks to the patience of the skipper and crew.

Phil Rowland

Route:

Hamble to Plymouth

Yacht:

Hallberg-Rassy 34

During the passage I received several position updates... Upon their arrival in Plymouth they thoroughly cleaned the boat and I went through with the Skipper his handover proforma. The whole experience of using Halcyon Yachts was an example of how it should be done. I Would use Halcyon Yachts again and highly recommend them.

Conscientious, experienced, careful, highly competent skipper, did exactly what they said they would do, just the right amount of communication both before, during and after the delivery trip; Left the boat in pristine condition. Good value for money. Would unhesitatingly recommend Halcyon Yachts to others.

Our Skipper was exactly the type of skipper you want on your boat, thorough, meticulous, prepared and probably just as important on an assisted passage, a good communicator and easy company... I would have no reservations about Halcyon Yachts assisting me again or delivering a boat for me.

We are very happy with Halcyon Yachts for the care and effort put into our boat move. The support was excellent from start to finish. The team took great care over the preparation to ensure the boat was ready and the passage plan was right. At the end of the trip care was taken to make sure that everything was in order and that the boat was secure in her new home. All in all, a thoroughly professional job, executed with both courtesy and enthusiasm. Thank you Halcyon Yachts!
