We were totally impressed by the service you provided, particularly by the extensive and comprehensive qualifications of the yacht delivery skipper and his crew.

Thank you to all at Halcyon for another superb delivery. We were with the Skipper from the UK to the last stop in Portugal. He had the boat and crew running in a fun but extremely professional way, we learnt so much about offshore sailing and had a great time. Hopefully we will sail with him again!

Elan 31

From my first communication with Halcyon, they gave me confidence of their professional approach, both in conversation, e-mails and the paperwork, ensuring aspects of safety and insurance were fully covered. The skipper ensured that I was kept informed throughout planning and delivery, responding promptly to any questions I had. From arriving at the boat, preparation and throughout delivery, the skipper and his crew kept me up to date and sent plenty of pictures, including a video of Dolphins guiding the boat towards Salcombe. The handover of the boat was thorough and the boat very clean, especially important during these times. Overall a very good and professional, but friendly service.

Torquay to Milford Haven

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.

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.
