The skipper and mate were exemplary in all aspects of the delivery. Circumstances were made difficult because of COVID-19 restrictions in both Swansea and Jersey but they handled them professionally and with aplomb. The boat was delivered in excellent condition and it was a pleasure to meet the crew on their arrival. Highly recommended!

The very competent skipper and crew brought my yacht to its destination safely and undamaged. Also a friendly and communicative office at any time before and during the transfer. I would fall back on Halycon Yachts anytime. I would also like to take these likeable and experienced sailors on board to support me on an extended holiday trip. Thank you for your excellent skipper and the crew. They really did a very hard job!!!

Yacht:

Claymore 30

What a great company with friendly, helpful staff and crew members. We were very apprehensive about having our little yacht, "Claymore of Hamble" delivered by strangers. We found everyone involved from start to end extremely professional and very, very helpful. All correspondence was responded to quickly. The yacht was in excellent hands and was handed over to us all nice and clean. We received constant updates and photographs throughout the trip and were able to track the progress from the start of the trip right up until she reached her new mooring. We highly recommend this company to anyone wanting their boat delivered. If we ever need our yacht moved again, this is the company we will be using, without a doubt.

The service was outstanding from the first moment on. Very professional crew, solution-minded, very supportive and they keep you informed very frequently with tracking devices and messenger. Upon delivery a very precise list of small items needing attention was provided, so I had a clear to-do list for the winter. Thank you Halcyon!!!

Moody 38

I needed a delivery at short notice. Halcyon Yachts responded well and had a crew within a week for the delivery back from Portugal to the UK. The trip was hard and in spite of a few mechanical problems, the team persisted, used their imagination to secure & implement solutions without much delay and successfully delivered the yacht safely to our home port.

Yacht:

Jeanneau SO 45.2

It was a good experience. I learned a lot from the approach the delivery skipper took to passage planning and navigating the channels. You were competitive in pricing compared to other yacht delivery companies and also were one of the few companies that excluded costs attributed to delays due to weather. If I come across any people looking for yacht delivery services, I am happy to recommend you.

Madeira to Falmouth

Yacht:

Rustler 42

I was impressed initially by the professionalism of Halcyon Yachts in the speed of response and the support they provided for me. Furthermore, the skipper and his crew were top class. They were obviously well experienced and very supportive, I wished I could have sailed back to the UK with them! If you ever need to have your vessel delivered anywhere, look no further than Halcyon Yachts!

Peter Baxter

Totnes to Hamble

Yacht:

Ovni 385

I know of your reputation having come across Halcyon Yachts on a professional basis, but this was the first time I have used you in a private/personal capacity. I have to say the whole experience was first class. Your skipper and crew were incredibly polite, organised and professional. Their communication during the trip was excellent and the handover de-brief was extremely useful. We have always recommended you through the brokerage, but my own experience now as an owner and private customer absolutely reinforces that recommendation.

Being a professional skipper myself, I can say that Halcyon Yachts met my expectations. All went smoothly between the first contact to hand over. The Skipper did a fantastic job as my boat is a special one, without modern technology and comfort.
