  3. An owner assisted yacht delivery

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I am just back from a fabulous yacht delivery to Turkey! The owners were on board and I was teaching them to Coastal Skipper level (RYA). Lovely people, great food and some excellent sailing! I hope you enjoy the video: Pete

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    Whilst on a yacht delivery from North Wales to Southern Spain we spotted a Fin Whale and managed to capture him up close and personal on the starboard bow! Lots of lovely dolphins too: I hope you enjoy it! Pete
  5. Do Hallberg-Rassy make the best yachts?

    Boat Review and Purchase Forum
    I have delivered many different yachts of all shapes and size. There is something certainly pretty special about the HR range! Here's a short video showing some of the highlights during the yacht delivery of a Hallberg Rassy 37 from the Netherlands to North Wales...
  6. Sailing to Scotland...

    General Discussion (sailing related) always a pleasure! I hope you enjoy the video! Pete
  7. Venezuela to Gibraltar

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    Drugs were of major concern - Luckily we where able to meet the owners out in Venezuela - no white suits, convertible sports cars or guys with machine guns insight, so we knew we would be OK! Here is part one of the video: I hope you enjoy it! Pete
  8. Trans Atlantic on a Rustler 42

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    A short video that was filmed and edited by one of the crew on board a lovely Rustler 42 during a Trans Atlantic crossing that finished earlier this month. The owner was originally thinking about taking her back by ship, but his son was keen to sail her home; so...
  9. Sailing from the Mediterranean to the UK

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    A common route for me, and this time there was no sign of the typical Northerlies along the Portuguese coast! I hope you enjoy the video... Pete
  10. Island Packet 380

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    The Island Packet 380 is a lovely yacht! We were very lucky to recently sail one to Gibraltar. Fresh conditions across Biscay, typical trade winds along the Portuguese coast and of course some amazing dolphins! I hope you enjoy it! Pete

    I love them... How about you? Here is one I delivered to Plymouth: I hope you enjoy it! Pete
  12. Ocean Crossing on a Prout 33

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    Here is a short video taken whilst crossing the Atlantic on board a Prout 33. A few snags along the way; and the trip took a lot longer than we'd expected - but Gemini Too performed excellently. The Prout 33 is a great boat! Pete
  13. 1977 Cheoy Lee Clipper 42

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    We recently had the pleasure of delivering a 1977 Cheoy Lee Clipper 42 from the UK to Greece. It was all filmed with a very poor quality camera, and unfortunately for a 4 week passage there wasn't much footage to play with. I guess the crew were busy doing other things. ;-) I hope you enjoy...
  14. Bowman Yachts

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I have always been a fan of Bowman Yachts - fantastic blue water cruisers! We were lucky enough to deliver a Bowman 40 from Portugal to the UK this summer. Unfortunately the typical Portuguese Northerlies were in full force, so the start of the trip was delayed a bit to get a good weather...
  15. Thick fog and lots of dolphins...

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    A short film taken during the delivery of a Beneteau 393 from Hamble to Troon: A real mixed bag of conditions, but by all accounts an excellent yacht and a great trip! Pete

  17. Long Finned Pilot Whales in the Mediterranean

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    On a recent delivery back from Southern Spain, the crew filmed some magnificent Pilot Whales (in the Med). Also hundreds of Dolphins, and they caught a whale blowing as they crossed Biscay. Probably a Fin Whale... Halcyon Yacht Delivery - Hanse 411 - Altea to Ipswich - YouTube Has anyone else...

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    Earlier this year we delivered a Malo 36 from Crete to the UK. Here is a short video that I have just edited together: Amazingly they had S and SW winds all the way up the Portuguese coast. A lovely boat and perfect conditions! Pete
  19. The Lagoon 560

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    We recently helped with the delivery of a Lagoon 560 from Corfu to Sicily. Here is a short film (recorded by the crew) showing some of the journey. A real mixture of conditions; no wind, and then some quite strong winds - typical Mediterranean stuff! The Lagoon took it all in her stride... A...
  20. Moody 34

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    I have just delivered a Moody 34 for a lovely lady who sadly lost her husband earlier this year. The yacht is now in Hamble, UK and is up for sale. A well loved and carefully maintained vessel in need of a good new home... I hope you like the video, and if there is anyone you know looking for a...
