What our clients say

Halcyon provided me with a Yachtmaster instructor to help us on a trip from Marmaris to Spain. They made the whole process very simple to set up and delivered exactly what they had said they would. We had some challenges on the trip and the skipper they provided, was excellent. His experience and practical skills shone through and provided the confidence and advice that we had wanted. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Halcyon.

Kevin O’Sullivan – Dufour 56 – Marmaris to Port de Roses

Very professional delivery in excellent time and with short notice, plus a remote handover. My yacht returned to Chichester just as I had left her in France, and was cleaned and tidied before the crew left. I would have no hesitation in recommending Halcyon Yachts, both the crew and the support team at base.

Neil Gibbons – Beneteau Oceanis 40 – La Roche Bernard to Chichester

This year I planned at least two months cruising in South Norway and the East Coast of Sweden with family and friends. Due to work pressures, I could not do the positioning of the boat in either direction. Halcyon however provided the solution. This was carried out in both directions with little fuss and appropriate care and attention. I would be happy to recommend Halcyon to any owner.

Paul Over – Chuck Paine 62 – Palma to Norway Return

We used Halcyon to deliver our catamaran from Lefkas Greece to our base in Jersey. We agreed our delivery contract and arranged for access to our boat for the team. Halcyon supplied the CV of the very experienced skipper and this was accepted by our insurance company. The team then arrived on the dates agreed at the yacht and proceeded to get her ready for delivery. Obviously there were a few questions but things were sorted out very quickly over a WhatsApp group set up for the delivery. Our boat was quite old and although we had tried to ensure everything was ready some things were undertaken by the yard in Greece without us being able to check. Sadly the fuel tank cleaning was obviously not done to a good enough standard and really caused a number of engine failures on the trip. The team on board managed this issue and sorted it out during the trip eventually arranging for a new tank clean to be undertaken. We were able to follow the trip on Marine traffic and had reports on WhatsApp. I was very impressed with the fortitude of the team on board dealing with any issues and the delivery was completed within the timescales agreed but with a slight allowance for the weather which will always be the case with a long-distance delivery. I would not hesitate to use Halcyon again.

Andrew Pearce – Athena 37 – Lefkas to Jersey

Halcyon did an absolutely magnificent job delivering my vessel. From initial contact to delivery the company were totally professional and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Halcyon to anyone. If you are wavering I would simply say – pick up the phone or send the email to Halcyon!

Luke Mander – Laurent Giles Virtue 25 – Lanzarote to Alcadeisa

Excellent service and delivery skipper. Always kept up to date.

Jim Henry – Southerly 42 RST – Mayo Sailing Club to Port Ellen

Halcyon have been great, I highly recommend them! Our skipper was really experienced and helped us get the most out of the boat and went over and above in all aspects.

James Passingham – Fountaine Pajot Elba 45 – Swanwick to Gibraltar

Following an incapacitating accident that prohibited sailing our boat home from La Trinite-sur-Mer to Falmouth, Halcyon were recommended to us as a delivery company. Notwithstanding the unfortunate circumstances, the entire process with Halcyon was excellent from the first quote to the final handover. Their professionalism and responsiveness gave us a feeling of great confidence. Of course, a lot of the success of such a delivery comes down to the crew. The skipper was outstanding. Not only was he a highly experienced and top-quality sailor but his communications skills were second to none. It is hard to imagine that anything could have gone better and we would highly recommend Halcyon.

Graham Parker – Rustler 44 – La Trinite Sur Mer to Falmouth

We recently contracted Halcyon Yachts to deliver our Beneteau 40 from Northern Ireland to Cornwall. We looked at quite a few companies, but Halcyon immediately stood out from the rest in terms of their professional approach to planning the passage, selecting the crew and setting up contracts. Their responses to our questions were prompt and well-considered, and their fee was very competitive There is clearly a significant backup organisation behind each delivery, which gave us peace of mind. The crew were exceptional. Great sailors, but also people that clearly cared about our boat. The skipper was a very experienced Yachtmaster who took good decisions along the route as conditions changed and kept us well-informed at all times. The passage was completed flawlessly and the boat delivered slightly ahead of schedule, not only in perfect condition but probably cleaner than when they set out.
