Clients Comments are Essential

L450
Clients comments are essential to our business. It is our reward for a job well done. It drives us forward to keep our standards high.

We just delivered a a Lagoon catamaran from France to Ft Lauderdale to a very discerning corporate client who demands a high level of customer service. When their leading broker says,

Good Job.” this shows we are getting things right. Our Captains are the best and the management support is spot on.

Cats Going Left and Right.

As we move out of winter in the northern hemisphere, our clients are beginning to get their yachts in place for the warmer weather to come. A recent spell of activity means we will be moving new catamarans in the next few weeks from France to the eastern Med and to the Caribbean. The yachts will be collected from Western France and taken across Biscay and then either turning east through Gib or West to the Virgin Islands and the Grenadines.
