Sirius 40 DS

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.

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!

Burnham on Crouch

Yacht:

Starlight 39

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.

Westerly Discus

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.

Route:

Plymouth to Neyland

Yacht:

Fisher 37

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.

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.

Brest to Hamble

Bavaria 38

We had our sailboat brought from France to Southampton... The WhatsApp group worked a treat and kept us all informed of the situation the entire way through he process. The skipper was a great sailor and a great guy, he looked after the boat very well and gave her a good clean on arrival. Not very often I leave reviews, however you've got to give credit where its due, Halcyon Yachts were brilliant. Many thanks!

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.
