“Great service from Toby. Learned loads from him and very glad to have him onboard, particularly whilst manoeuvring in tight East coast harbours with our center drive! Both myself and partner now feel much more confident on our Snowgoose. Very glad to have him onboard. He even helped us passage plan for the next trip up to Inverness over the phone a few days afterwards.”

“Certainly a testing trip but we never lost faith, even with having to lift her out in Lisbon to change prop seals! Couldn’t have done it without the amazing skipper and crew that you provided. Had total confidence in them from the off and they were worth every penny. Learnt a lot, ate very well and enjoyed every moment sailing with them.”

“Many thanks to Yacht Delivery-UK. Whilst wholly professional and efficient your team made for really enjoyable company and I hope our paths will cross in future. I’d happily recommend your owner-assisted delivery service to anyone in need of support or confidence on the water.”

Chris Aylmer
Broadblue 385
Plymouth - Greece
May 2018

“I gave Yacht Delivery-UK my boat to sail to Greece for me and it got there in absolutely excellent condition and in great time. Toby sorted crew and provisions and skippered the boat there himself. Problems were sorted en-route, the crew were still happy and smiling when they arrived. We then sailed together in the Ionian for a few days while he handed the boat over to me properly – an informative pleasure.”

Katherine. O
Simply Time - Lifestyle Management
From November 2012

“We have had the pleasure of working with Yacht Delivery UK over the last two years. We presented them with a unique situation – and they have risen to the challenge and past our expectations of what could be achieved. The relationship continues to grow as the clients’ needs change and we are pleased that they are part of these changes and the future.

They provide excellent skippers, who are always willing to go the extra mile, in whatever situation is thrown at them and no matter how long the day…..Often long and unknown!

They look after the boat ensuring it arrives at its destination safely on time and in one piece, but they also care for the experience the client has during the journey and at the destination. Ensuring our youngest crew members are happy and safe has been a priority, and it’s been a pleasure to watch the youngest involved develop great friendships with Will and Nigel while growing in confidence about being on and around water.

Often there are questions when they are not on duty and we can totally rely on them for advice and guidance, beyond what they are contracted to do.

We would find it hard to manage the job without them; their happy helpful friendly approach is a breath of fresh air and makes Yacht Delivery UK a great company to work with.”
