Sadler 34 to Aarhus, Denmark

“Buying a sailboat in Devon is an unusual challenge to a Dane – not least because of logistic problems related to getting the vessel across the 675 nm to Denmark. In came pyd with rapid and fuss-free assistance at a reasonable flat fee. The transfer team went through the boat carefully, travelled with great care and determination, and was frugal with my ship's running cost deposit. I received regular SMSprogress reports, even praising the boat’s sailing capacity. On arrival the boat was thoroughly cleaned and the crew had completed a highly valuable function list of all equipment. Very professional indeed – I only regret being unable to sail with the crew which would have been a fine learning experience and great fun. Highly recommended.”Hendrik Vilstrup, professor.

New Sweden Yacht 45 arrives in the UK

Many thanks and I have put a cheque in the post today. Just again to say a big “thankyou” for the excellent service you provided and to say how much I enjoyed having your skipper on board and skippering Water Rat across what proved to be a fairly windy North Sea! He was the consummate professional and I learned a lot from him in the few days we were sailing together. I could not recommend him highly enough and very much hope I can sail with him again one day. I will be laid up for the rest of the year but look forward to planning for the ARC in 2009. I will not hesitate to contact you if I need further help positioning the boat. Thank you once again and I look forward to speaking to you again sometime. With best regards*sister ship picture** pyd note we have delivered more than thirty of these fine boats Worldwide
