WHAT WE OFFER
- Experience counts for nearly everything. Captain Grahame on board for all deliveries has raced and cruised extensively at sea for 44 years.
- All crew have comprehensive knowledge of Navigation (coastal and some celestial) Weather, First Aid and boat maintenance.
- Our primary crew have been selected because Grahame has total trust in their ability.
- Grahame’s mechanical knowledge combined with that of the crew is extensive. Should something stop working, we have always been able to fix or jury rig a temporary solution.
- Continual consciousness of the best possible seamanship practices, recognising our responsibility for our lives and your possessions.
- We communicate at least daily whilst at sea by either mobile or satellite and also have shore based crew to liaise with owners and monitor our safe progress.
- Grahame previously owned a cleaning business. We know how to present the vessel on completion.
- Our rates are honest and very reasonable. For power boats, our fuel burn is often much less due to steaming at slower speeds than many.
- Recommendations. Repeated reference to professionalism, integrity and excellent communication through the many testimonials.
