Trans Atlantic Yacht Delivery
Our delivery skippers are all highly experienced ocean sailors. We take great care to check all the systems and equipment prior to departure. Safety to vessel and crew is always paramount; no more so than when you are crossing an ocean. If you are entering the ARC (Atlantic Rally Cruise) and want some advice or wish to discuss your vessels return options then we would be delighted to help.
Instruction and Assisted Passage
If you wish to be onboard for the delivery then Halcyon Yachts can offer you a personally tailored instructional package or a compliment of crew to suit your specific needs. Many of our skippers are qualified RYA Yachtmaster Instructors and, through our affiliation with an RYA sailing school, we can organise training with RYA certification. We always ensure compatibility between the owner and the crew so as to maximise the quality of your experience.
Race Yacht Delivery
Over the years we have helped many clients with the relocation of their race yachts to various sailing regattas. These deliveries include shorter passages to events such as Cowes Week or Cork Week, or longer trips to races in the Mediterranean or Caribbean. Regardless of the distance we are very used to managing high performance vessels. Let us make life that little bit easier for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying the sailing.
Private Own Boat Tuition
Halcyon Yachts can provide you and your family with a qualified and experienced RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. We can guide you through the things you need to know whilst on board your own vessel and will personally tailor the experience to suit your needs. We can follow the RYA syllabus and through our affiliation with an RYA sailing school subsequently issue certificates upon completion. Beginner courses, brush up courses and advanced courses are all available.

If you need an extra pair of hands to help you with a sailing trip then Halcyon Yachts can provide you with the perfect solution. Our yacht delivery crew are carefully vetted and are highly recommended. We can have a professional first mate or deck hand join you at short notice anywhere in the world.
What our clients say
I have been delighted with the efficiency of delivery. I will happily recommend Halcyon for Deliveries.
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!
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.
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.
