What our clients say

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.

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!

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!

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.
