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’
