Sweden Yachts 54 arrives in Lisbon

Excellent service – many thanks

Sweden Yachts 45 arrives in Scotland

Dear Bill,We have just returned home for a brief spell. I will put your cheque in the post. I am most grateful for the high quality work done by your crew. The skipper is a tower of experience and skill and made a difficult crossing, (to me), very straight forward. We were reasonably held up by bad weather and his judgements about when to go and when not to go were excellent.I would have no hesitation in returning to you for any future long trips. Thank you once more.*pyd note we have delivered around 30 of these boats since moving hull #1 in 2000

Westerly Oceanlord comes home

I am the co-owner of Cara Mor and just wanted to write to say thanks for the help in getting our boat back to Hamble from Portimao. I was really impressed with how quickly everything was organised and it seemed like no time before you had the guys out with me. After a stressful time preceding your involvement it was great to have something go right!Your crew were absolutely fantastic. Great sailors and great company. They not only did an excellent job in getting the boat home but they made the delivery, work for them, feel like the holiday/cruise that it was originally meant to be for me. On top of which a rather weary Westerly ended up looking fantastic thanks to the guys efforts during our stay in Cascais and then upon arrival at Hamble. All in all it turned out to be a really good experience and thoroughly enjoyable. I only wish we had looked into the professional delivery option earlier.I will be more than happy to recommend pyd and wouldn't be surprised if we find ourselves using you again.Once again, many thanks.Yours sincerely,

Dear Bill,

Payment has been sent to your bank today. I was very impressed with the delivery crew and would not hesitate to recommend your company to prospective clients. I especially liked the Skipper's condition report.

Best Regards,


Insurance companies prefer pyd

Just for your info – once they knew it was pyd, they did not even ask for the name of the Skipper.

Best regards,


Contest 44 from Lagos to Lymington 


I am very pleased with your delivery and the condition and cleanliness of the boat on handover was impressive.

Many thanks for the delivery, very professional.

Thanks for the update. We were glad to have had the opportunity to meet the crew and were most impressed with their professionalism, which allayed any concerns we might otherwise have had. Looking forward to hearing of further progress.

Kind regards

Menorquin 160 around the West Coast of Scotland

Just to say Scott was excellent on Kestrel. Fitted in really well with us and the team. Clearly very competent. The bow thruster died due to battery failure but was a real problem getting back into a difficult berth. Scott's skills as a Challenger Skipper really showed and he got everyone really organised and made it all look very simple – which it wasn't!

Swan 46 from Dubrovnik to Hamble

Very many thanks for arranging the return of Starwalker from Dubrovnik. She arrived in good condition thanks to Michael Hook and his crew.

Kind regards

Bavaria 38 from Greece

We are very pleased with the delivery of our yacht. It was a truly professional team who took her the whole distance from Greece and in the end, left her in pristine condition.

HR 40 from Ellos to Ardfern


I just think that it has been a fantastic service. We cannot get over the amazing state the boat was left in – I'm convinced that it is actually better than when we picked it up brand new!!

We certainly expect to be using pyd in future and will happily recommend you to anyone who asks

With kind regards

Hanse 495 from Greifswald
