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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

From the day I first made contact Halcyon has given me great confidence regarding the owner-assist passage from Falmouth to Troon. The organisation was seamless and very well executed and I was allocated an outstanding skipper and crew who could not have been more helpful, kind, encouraging, and totally professional in executing the whole passage. I can thoroughly recommend Halcyon Yachts if you need help or want to move your boat anywhere, especially at times of the year when the weather may present additional challenges. Outstanding service thank you!

I worked with Halcyon to deliver my yacht from Hamble Point UK to Amsterdam. The service was outstanding and I particularly enjoyed making the passage with the Skipper (who was exceptional) and crew (also terrific). I will definitely work with Halcyon again!

I needed to get my recently purchased yacht from Ipswich to Gosport and had a crew ready to help me. Due to the weather changing had to push the dates and lost my crew. Contacted Halcyon and they happily arranged to have crew available for the trip. The trip had its moments and problems were sorted methodically and logically which enabled us to press on and complete each leg of the trip on time. I thought Halcyon's crew's knowledge and experience was the key factor in the trip being able to proceed. We experienced some not-so-kind weather and a bitter cold wind and the only people out in early March. The crew were excellent and I would recommend them to others without hesitation. If I needed help again Halcyon would be my first number to dial.
