So far my and the crews experiences are:
Crew left stranded in Panama.
Crew is still waiting for pay and return flights.
Many lies and never ending broken promises.
Quick in asking for money.
Very difficult to contact. Not contactable by phone. may have been a reputable company in the past, but is now in the ownership of Stephen Miller (a previous car dealer).
Should you still decide to deal with this company, make sure that you do not pay upfront.
I have had the exact same experience with this company. He has cost me close to 50k GBP and his unpaid crew abandoned my yacht 7000 miles from its destination. When I successfully prosecuted him, he declared insolvency to avoid refunding my money.

His website is still up, but he is writing to Court to state that he is avoiding his responsibilities to pay damages as he is insolvent and winding the company up. He stole my provisioning budget to go skiiing and kept all the fees, even though he did only a 10th of the work.
