Director of Halcyon Yachts

Pete Green

Pete, a professional yachtsman, founded Halcyon Yachts Ltd in 2010. Pete grew up in a sailing family and yachting became a huge part of his life from a young age. As a teenager, he worked as a dinghy instructor at Mylor Sailing School. He qualified as a commercially endorsed RYA Yachtmaster Offshore in his early 20’s and quickly went on to become an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. Pete then worked as a freelance skipper and instructor for numerous RYA sailing schools and yacht delivery companies. He also worked as a flotilla skipper and spent a season in the superyacht industry working on a classic yacht in the Caribbean. Yacht delivery was Pete’s real passion and this lead him on to form the highly reputable organisation of Halcyon Yachts.

About Us


What our clients say

At Halcyon Yachts we take pride in our yacht deliveries, and we will deliver your yacht safely, securely and with the utmost respect of the owners’ wishes.

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.
