What our clients say

Best decision we made to employ Halycon, for a yacht delivery from the UK to Portugal. Couldn't fault the professionalism. Would highly recommend.

Having had Halcyon Yachts recommended to us by a friend who had used their services we engaged Halcyon Yachts to deliver our recently purchased Beneteau 331 from Bangor Marina in Northern Ireland to Falmouth Marina in Cornwall. We were very impressed with the helpful friendly service from initial contact with the office team to meeting the delivery crew upon arrival in Cornwall. By chance the Skipper selected was based not far from where we live, and we took the opportunity to meet with him prior to the voyage. Prior to the start of the voyage the Skipper made excellent decisions to find and take best advantage of a small weather window in the weather forecast. His decisions proved to be spot on. We are happy to recommend Halcyon Yachts because of their attention to detail and the fact that everything operated and worked as it should when they left Northern Ireland and everything operated and worked as it should upon handover in Cornwall.
