The first principle of  handover & training is to ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE!

With many years of experience and as seasoned sailors ourselves we aim to make the handover experience of your new boat as pleasurable and informative as possible. We give a specific handover & training package, free of charge to all boat purchasers.
