Managing 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.

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.

Halcyon Yachts did a magnificent job delivering my yacht Nutmeg from Brittany to Scotland.  In particular, the Skipper did an amazing job and was backed by a strong crew.

Michael Dodworth – Hallberg Rassy 39 – Arzal to Ardfern

Many thanks to Halcyon Yachts for a great delivery job in the middle of winter, carried out with minimum fuss and stress. A very professional job done by all involved. Skipper communications and tracking system was excellent.

Jim Cowie – Island Packet 420 – Swanwick to Inverness

Professional yacht delivery is permitted during these difficult times and buying a second-hand boat (for the first time) is a voyage into the unknown. No further reasons needed to commission Halcyon yachts and I am extremely happy with the result. The professional skipper was wonderful. Very experienced, knowledgeable, calm and great fun. It was a bonus to learn so much about the boat from the skipper during the process. Well done!

James Murray – Contessa 32 – Gosport to Falmouth

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.
