Jeanneau 42i France to Turkey

Jeanneau 42iDear Mr. Irving,

I am writing to thank you very much for providing the opportunity for me to be part of the Reliance team.  The trip, as you will recall, was from Port Leucate to Marmaris.  I had an absolutely fantastic time on this, my first delivery, with Chris Stanton.    This was mainly due to Chris’ professionalism and patience in bringing me up to speed as an effective crew member.  He was also kind enough to include me in all aspects of the business of yacht delivery through which I hope I was able to make myself as useful as possible within my role as crew.

I think we were probably subjected to the full range of weather conditions during the trip which, for a newcomer, was a quite an experience!

I have now just about lost the sensation of the rolling seas beneath me but am left with good memories of a great trip.

Many thanks,

Guy Pearson

Beneteau 50 Antigua to Brighton

Beneteau 50 CHi,

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

France to Med

JRI 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.

Yours faithfully

Lavezzi 40 France to St Martin

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

Sun Odyssey 49i – France to Turkey


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.

Many thanks
