“Andrew was superb. Without his extreme efforts the trip would never have been the success it was. Not only did he spend many months searching the world for the right yacht for me to charter but he then worked tirelessly with me in liaising with the yacht’s crew on all the many logistical details required to make the event what I wanted it to be. His professionalism and diligence is second to none and I would thoroughly recommend him to all of my friends who are looking to charter any kind of yacht no matter the size (as two friends already have).”
