Some of the clients and their projects we've completed
Bret & his Neel 51
Bret, Amanda & their son were preparing for the World Cruising Club's ARC Rally in 2022.
Having limited sailing experience and never owning a boat from new we stepped in to help.
We worked with them to spec, from the manufacturers list of options and suggested additional upgrades for bluewater cruising.
We followed the build process and travelled to the yard in France for the launch and commissioning period.
We supported warranty work and their first months aboard, until the ARC Rally start line.

Simon & Jodi's Discovery 50 BW
Simon & Jodi had decided to retire, they bought their Discovery 50 BW in Jersey but COVID struck.
Having signed up to the World Cruising Club's ARC rally, they were short on time and experience in setting up a boat for bluewater cruising.
We undertook a full audit of their yacht and managed the program of repair and upgrades. We also created a training program for Simon and Jodi, to get them up to speed with their boat and the bluewater skills they needed.
They are now cruising the Caribbean and participating in WCC World ARC Pacific 2023.
