Thumbs Up Yacht Deliveries UK – 37ft Hanse Hamble to Fambridge

37ft Hanse ‘Hullabaloo’ from Hamble to Fambridge, Essex – Thumbs Up Yacht Deliveries UK

This short hop from The Hamble to Fambridge in Essex was an excellent but challenging trip.

DELIVERY STATS: Distance: 250nm. Duration: 32 hrs. No. of hours with engine on: 2hrs. Wind range: 15kts – 40kts. Average Speed: 7.8kts!!
By the way, the 40knot winds were in the Thames Estuary when we were tacking towards The River Crouch. Sand banks, wind farms and VERY rough seas!

This trip was on behalf of Robin Townsend who was very happy with his new yacht and the quality of service from Thumbs Up. Here is his testimonial:

Thumbs Up delivered our newly purchased Hanse 370e yacht from Hamble Point to Fambridge Yacht Haven on the River Crouch and I am very happy to provide this testimonial.

The yacht was crewed by Matthew Kotze (skipper) and his crew member Lyle

Both Matthew and Lyle were exemplary in the way they assisted us prior to and after delivery . During the passage they kept us fully up to date with their progress and how the boat was fairing in what proved to be fairly demanding conditions.

The delivery was undertaken on schedule and the boat was well cared for .

After the delivery was completed Matthew undertook as a matter of course , a check of the rigging including at the mast head  which was carried out in a safe and professional manner . He also provided some useful advise on handling the boat.

It is obvious that Matthew has vast experience as a skipper and this was easily seen as soon as he  stepped aboard.

It was a pleasure to deal with such a friendly and professional  outfit  and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone requiring the services of  a yacht delivery company.
