Testimonials

What our clients say

I have been delighted with the efficiency of delivery. I will happily recommend Halcyon for Deliveries.

Tom Gibbon – Jeanneau 54 DS – Valencia to Falmouth

In a year afflicted by both Covid-19 and Brexit constraints, Halcyon were professional, friendly, polite and helpful throughout.  I had never used a yacht delivery company before but would now happily recommend Halcyon to anyone and also use them again myself.  The skipper gave me confidence from the very first pre-voyage contact right through to final handover. 

Paul Smith – Sirius 40 DS – Palma to Plymouth

Halcyon’s hugely experienced skipper and mate, and supporting crew, undertook the 2,500nm delivery in November, ahead of schedule. with great communication.  It is difficult to thank them enough for their highly professional service.  Halcyon are a class act and highly recommended!

Keith Gabriel – Southerly 38 – Lefkas to Hamble

I was really impressed by the Halcyon service. Having just bought a thirty year old Starlight in Southend I used Halcyon to move the boat to Dartmouth. The skipper was excellent company and immensely experienced. He was very generous with his time in discussing everything he did to evaluate and prepare the boat. The journey itself was great fun and a really wonderful introduction to my new boat. I think I learnt more in four days that I have in any other week of my sailing career.

Charlie Armor – Starlight 39 – Burnham on Crouch to Dartmouth

We were very pleased with the delivery of our yacht "White Spice". We were kept up to date on how everything was progressing and despite the weather's best efforts to hamper the delivery it all went well. The Skipper was very professional and talked me through the boat... I won't hesitate to use Halcyon Yachts again and recommend anyone looking for a delivery service gets in touch with them.

Philip Day – Westerly Discus – Rye to Suffolk Yacht Harbour

We were delighted with the service, especially as, with an older yacht, straight after an extensive refit, a mechanical snag was encountered on the trip which the crew handled professionally and without fuss. The crew even used moderate RPM for the trip, favouring kindness to the yacht and fuel economy over an extra knot or two... I would be more than happy to recommend Halcyon to anyone needing their yacht moved.

Andrew Wilmott – Fisher 37 – Plymouth to Neyland

Very pleased with the service! Well organised and everything went to plan. The yacht delivery skipper kept us informed all the way.

David Hicken – Beneteau 34 – Lymington to Plymouth

Great communication throughout and some nice updates / photos along the way. Would definitely use again.

John Cooper – Moody 36 – Plymouth to Gosport

The yacht delivery crew were excellent, taking a suitably cautious approach through some poor weather and looking after the boat all the way. They arrived early to make careful preparations and then made sure the boat was clean and tidy to hand over to us. I have no hesitation recommending their services from start to finish.

Elliot Wishlade – Grand Soleil 37 – Portsmouth to Greenock
