YachtMovers Feedback

What people say about us....

We delivered a Nicholson 35 from Brixham to Denmark with the Danish owners, J&JBL, on board. He said:

Delivery - Nic 35 in the Baltic

My wife and I, who are not the most experienced sailors, bought a 43-year-old Nicholsson 35 in the southwestern part of UK in September 2017. A few months before we had seen YachtMover's advertisement in Yachting Monthly. We needed a delivering skipper and one crew member who could assist us with both the preparation and practical sailing across the North Sea to the yacht’s new home port in Denmark.

Glenn arranged that Paul could sail with us from the UK and together they delivered the most outstanding preparations and the most professional safe sailing we could hope for. Just what we needed. Glenn and Paul were great company too.

As soon as we contacted YachtMowers, one could sense the professional skill and dedication. Questions and considerations were answered promptly in the very best way - from the beginning we felt absolutely sure that we had chosen just the right skipper for the task.

We can give YachtMovers our very best and warmest recommendation.

We delivered a Rustler 37 from Southampton to Rhu for JB, a Master Mariner. He said:

Delivery - Rustler 36

I approached YachtMovers, as a random choice from advertisements in Yachting Monthly and as a first step in getting comparative quotes from more than one service provider. The quality of the response gave me confidence in YachtMovers' professionalism, which was subsequently more than justified.

The anticipated costs were acceptable, transparent and as firm as could reasonably be expected in view of several significant uncertainties. I decided to look no further.

The delivery skipper had a moving target to cope with in the ocean transport vessel's inevitable changes of ETA and he needed to be absolutely certain of being able to collect the yacht within a narrow, but moveable time scale after arrival. He had previously relieved me of the problem of finding a berth near Southampton at reasonable cost and availability before the main passage to Scotland. This was an enormous help.

Despite problems on passage with the autopilot, I was never in any doubt that the yacht was in good hands.

We delivered an Elizabethan 29 from Totnes to Rochester with the owner, SW, on board. He said:

I learnt a lot from Glenn who was brilliant and frankly had stamina that I could not hope to match. I cannot recommend Glenn highly enough and would happily sail with him again. Having him there for the trip allowed me to experience a different form of sailing and live to sail another day. Hopefully he had a good experience despite the cold and lack of sleep. I will be putting the experience to good use over the summer. Thanks again for arranging it and pass on my best to Glenn who was fantastic.

We provided some Own Boat Tuition on a Bavaria 36 in the South West for J&DB. They said:

We would highly recommend Glenn for those looking for own boat tuition. As a husband and wife team, our experience and needs were quite different but Glenn's calm and thorough approach gave us confidence right from the start. The instruction was continuously reinforced in a very informative way over 5 days and our confidence has grown enormously making us much better sailors. Glenn was professional from start to finish (and makes perfect bacon rolls), there is no doubt that we will definitely be back for more.

We delivered an Oyseter 47 from Poros in Greece to the Solent for the owner, KD. He said:

I am extremely happy with the service Glenn and his team have provided in bringing my yacht back to the UK from Greece. I found Glenn extremely easy to work with, he took the greatest care of my yacht and found practical and inexpensive solutions to the technical issues that inevitably come up on such a long trip, and he delivered my yacht undamaged and completely clean. I thoroughly recommend him to any owner who needs a delivery service."

Delivery - Oyster 47

We delivered a 42' Southerly from Southampton to Faro with the owner, NR, on board. He said:

Yachtmovers have just delivered my 42ft yacht from the Solent to Faro on the Portuguese Algarve. Their reply to my enquiry was prompt, comprehensive and the most professional out of the firms that replied.

The trip was complicated by nets around the prop and an engine problem that held us in northern Spain for three days. YachtMovers went out of their way to minimise the delay charges, and the boat was cleaned and tidied on arrival.

The delivery skipper was not only professional and gave me a lot of tuition through out the trip but also went over the back in the middle of Biscay when the prop fouled which is above and beyond normal service! I would recommend Yachtmovers as the service they provide is first class and reasonably priced.

We delivered an Island Trader 40 (Motor Sailor) from Crete to London safely, despite difficulties with the yacht. The new owner, NB, said:

Delivery - Tradewinds 40

Richard and Glenn brought my 30 year old Island Trader 40 home to London from Greece despite an engine fire and problems with the sails. They managed to fix my boat, sort out the paperwork and get her safely back to England before winter set in, without breaking the bank.

We provided a skipper for PM and his family to enable them to cruise further afield:

Spinnaker up and cruising

We were clearly really happy with our cruise last August, around the French coast and Channel Islands, as we did it again in October. We asked for long sailing days to build our experiences and qualifying miles as well as interesting harbours. Those things we were given of course, but we got a great deal more, not least in terms of knowledgeable teaching, great companionship and really good fun! I thoroughly recommend Glenn and am happy to be contacted to talk some more about how much we appreciated our time with him - PM Contact details available.
