I meant to drop you a line to say how successful and enjoyable the week was. January in the Irish Sea is not the best time but we did a lot. Andy and Gordon were very professional and very good. Thanks and talk to you soon.pyd note:Own boat training is a great way of honing your skills and perhaps brushing up on slightly rusty techniques. You can get even the family involved too!

Dutch owned Koopmans 48 arrives in Almerimar

Regarding Stormvogel We just returned back home after taking over our sailing boat ‘stormvogel’ from your crew in Alimerimar port. I would like to confirm that although they had ‘strong winds F 9’ in the area of Cagliari, and some minor small repair jobs had to be done, our ‘Stormvogel’ reached Puerto Deportivo Almerimar in perfect condition at the evening of november 3rd 2007. We specially like to thank and pay a compliment to the skipper, who took excellent care of our ship.Upon arrival he solved some technical problems ( replacing the solenoid, repairing diesel leak on generator, and leak on waste pump) After receipt of your final invoice we will take care of immediate payment of the balance. Kind regards,

Beneteau 523 arrives back in Levkas

Thank you and Chris and the crew for delivering my boat safely to Lefkas. Chris seems to have had an eventful trip and only some minor breakages which he seems to have coped with very well. I do feel very confident in PYD hands, both as crew with Brian and with Chris in absentia, does that mean I don't want to sail with Chris?? I will be back in UK at the weekend and will send you a cheque along with a little something for the crew members as I literally missed Chris and the crew by minutes, we crossed paths along the causeway in Lefkas! Thank you once again to you and your company for a very professional and proficient service, I will be sure to contact you when I need her moved again, that is when it too grown up for me!! regards

New Contest 45 arrives

“I was extremely pleased with the delivery of the boat, as you kept me informed on progress, and your skipper, along with his crew did a first class job and carried out a useful debriefing at the end. Many thanks for your company’s help; I would certainly not hesitate to use you again as everything was done so professionally. I would be only too happy for you to give my name for reference purposes should you so wish”

Oyster 55 arrives in Antwerp by ship

Re: Delivery of IXION – Oyster 55I am writing to say that Ixion was safely delivered from Antwerp to Ipswich by your crew and I am delighted in the way the whole operation was so smoothly carried out by PYD, and, especially bearing in mind the very ‘last minute’ arrangements that had to be made due to the late arrival in Antwerp of the transport vessel.Upon arrival in Ipswich Ixion was left in immaculate condition by the delivery crew with a full report of all their observations about the boat en route. Thankfully very little had to be commented upon.Once again my thanks to you all and I will certainly be back in touch with you when I require another delivery carried out.Kind regards

Customers keep on coming back…..

I’m a past very satisfied customer enquiring about PYD’s services once more.One of your people skippered my new HR36 with me in April 2003 …… I have now been living in South Thailand for 4 years and intend to take my boat home via the Suez Canal in 2007

Oyster 55 owner writes in

Dear Phil — Thanks for checking. I was tremendously impressed and was going to email you to that effect later today when I finished at Oyster in Ipswich. The Skipper was perfect. Calm and knowledgeable in all respects, and I enjoyed my time with them in Malta.

Crew are impressed too!

Quality crew are as important as the finest skippers and pyd we have always devoted considerable time and energy into looking after our people on the water. It's therefore particularly reassuring to get this sort of feedback from one deckhand following a very quick early Spring trans Atlantic aboard a Farr 60:”I must thank you for the experience and invaluable info. I received during my Trans Atlantic. Peter was fantastic and in the face of all the complexity on the boat, as well as very challenging weather conditions, showed me a level of experience of which to aspire to.I just wish I had taken sailing up sooner.It was one of the best months of my life!!!! Seriously.I hope to be able to join you on a lot more trips!!All the bestNeil”

Yacht Marathon Glasgow to Barcelona

….I cannot let this opportunity pass without commenting on the outstanding service you have provided.The delivery was made in Winter conditions in February , over a distance of 1990 sea miles from Glasgow , Scotland to Barcelona, Spain. The crew experienced snow at the departure date and storm force winds during the journey of 15 days, nevertheless the delivery was made on time and the cost was completely in accordance with the quotation that you provided. Additionally, I received from you a progress report on the journey every 48 hours.Upon arrival the captain gave me a comprehensive and detailed written report relating to the boat and its systems throughout the journey and I consider this to be very valuable. The fact that the report is included in the delivery fee is an added bonus.On the day of their arrival I had the pleasure of a very enjoyable and informative lunch with the captain and crew, each of whom I consider to be first class.It has been a pleasure working with you and I will not hesitate to recommend PYD to any person who is considering delivery of their boat.With best regards,John Pickworth owner yacht ‘Marathon’
