Thank you for a quick moment of your time and help.
I was the first mate on the delivery of Amitie, a Beneteau 50, from Jolly Harbour, Antigua to Brighton which finished on 13 June 2008. It was a wonderful trip and I am so thankful for the opportunity however I wanted to take this chance to follow up on everything and make sure there is nothing you guys still need from me.
Things are going great, thanks for all your help and hard work. I am definitely interested in another delivery however am not available until late July/early August due to some other commitments here.
I would also just like to say that though I wasn’t asked you all should be aware what a great skipper you have in Peter. I’ve been lucky to sail with a wide range of people and Peter is one of the best skippers I have ever had the honour of learning from.
Thank you again for everything and I look forward to working with reliance again. Hope all is well, take care and talk soon I’m sure
Beneteau 50 Antigua to Brighton
Yes, I have now transported the yacht to the new home harbour in Vanernlake. I have today made the final payment, see clip below.
Thanks for all the good service. Send the best wishes to the captain and the crew. I had the great opportunity to meet them very short in Langedrag Marina after arrival.
Thanks again, I will recommend your service and company to all.
Beneteau 351 -Darthaven, UK to Gothenburg, Sweden
I would like to thanks you and your crews for assisting us in the deliveries for both Sunsail and Moorings charter boats from eastern coast of France to many of our Mediterranean bases that are located in Greece, Turkey and Croatia.
Your crews gave us outstanding service during this project. All of your deliveries were done in a very professional manner and your crews provided us with exceptional service.
The constant updates that I received during all of the deliveries that you provided for us were greatly appreciated. I look forward to working with you during upcoming projects for 2009. On TUI Marine behalf we thank you for your excellent services.
Logistics Coordinator – France to Eastern Med
Thanks, we are making arrangements for the payment and will let you know when it leaves our account.
At this point, we would like to thank you for your work on this delivery. Your quote came in lower than those provided by freelance delivery skippers and from start to finish, we have been extremely pleased with the manner in which you have carried this delivery out – not only with the swift commissioning and handover from Fountaine Pajot, but on the professionalism of your delivery skipper and crew, the timely arrival of the yacht in St Martin, the provisioning of inventory items for the delivery (thereby saving us a considerable amount of money as these did not have to be purchased in Euros in France), the paucity of problems with the yacht, and the immaculate state of the vessel when picked up by our own skipper. We would definitely use your services for future deliveries and will be pleased to recommend you to others.
Many thanks and best wishes
Barefoot Yacht Charters
We work in a business where, as you know (and particularly given the nature of boats and the nature of some charter guests) things do not always go perfectly. Praise should be given when it’s due!
All the best and thanks again
I just thought I would drop you a quick message to say how much I enjoyed the delivery to Marmaris.
I thought Ben Gundry was an excellent skipper and I think both Ben S and myself learned a great deal from Ben. His attention to detail was very reassuring and he coped well in difficult conditions which put his crew at ease. I would happily sail with Ben as part of his crew again.
Sun Odyssey 49i – France toTurkey
His knowledge of the 420 was very helpful and his good humour and patience were very much appreciated. Our sincere thanks go to Reliance for matching David up with us.
Les Sables to Gibraltar
I have been back in the states now for a couple of days and wanted to drop you an email. By now, you are probably somewhere between Florida and Tortola on your latest delivery. I just wanted to tell you how much that we (Carol and I) appreciated the care that you took in delivering our new boat Lucy from France to Tortola. I can tell you that I was truly shocked at the marvellous condition of Lucy upon her arrival in Tortola. After 43 days at sea, I expected her to be dirty and caked in salt. The exact opposite was true. She looked like she had just rolled off the showroom floor.
The boat was incredibly clean and contained very few flaws of any kind. The lines, the upholstery, the deck and the cabins looked like new. The condition of the boat is a direct reflection upon your professionalism as a captain. It was a job well done. And while we had only a short time to get acquainted, I truly enjoyed the brief company of you and your crew.
The crew spoke very highly of you as a captain. I have retained your business card and will certainly call upon you in the future if we have need of your services as a Captain. And if you feel like sharing any part (or all) of your log books from the crossing, I will leave it to your discretion.
I have provided my mailing address below in case you decide to share these.
