Testimonials

  • Mr & Mrs Cole

    "Fantastic service from start to finish. Running a sailing school in Spain it is imperative that we remain operational at all times during the season. The Darthaven team came up trumps with a new Volvo D2-40 to replace our high houred MD2040 which was beginning to cost us both financially and timewise. James Bland provided all necessary information, shipping and installation commissioning. We have just completed our 40 hour oil change and are now looking forward to a trouble free 2017 season with our new super smooth engine. Thanks for all your help and excellent customer service."

    "I would like to express my thanks and satisfaction at all levels"

    I would like to express my thanks and satisfaction at all levels with your service and my experience with yourselves. I was not able to be present to oversee or control any of the work as I live abroad but felt 100% confident due to the way I was treated by all concerned. From your precise estimates to the careful way your invoicing reflected exactly the work estimated gave a reassuring and professional impression.

    The lift out, clean down and antifouling, the repairs, hull polishing and engine service were all carried out by yourselves with no subcontractors and complications. At the request of my Marine Surveyor all his points were estimated and the repairs carried out in a very professional manner. My dealings with you as Service Coordinator were clear concise and friendly which was also very reassuring. My dealings with Phil in your Chandlery were similarly helpful and very friendly. I am only sorry that as I am taking my boat North that I will not be able to have these advantages next year!

  • Mr Lumsden

    'An unexpected mechanical problem brought "Seren y Mor" to Darthaven and first I have to compliment Rob, Darren and the team who worked hard to sort out our problems, that were more serious than we thought. Our time in Darthaven led us to discover the picturesque and historic surroundings and great restaurants just across the river by ferry. The chandlery at Darthaven Marina is one of the best in any marina I've visited. It's just a pity that sometimes the only way to get a berth at the busy Darthaven Marina is to break down!'

  • Mr Millington

    "From the very helpful marina staff to the excellent chandlery and the service dept. this is one great setup and one that a lot of marinas could aspire to be like. We have a problem with a warning light on our Williams jet rib and an engineer, James, was with us that afternoon and diagnosed the problem, ordered the parts and was back the following day and fitted them. We tested the rib last and all 100%."

  • Mr Piggott

    "A note to thank you for the most marvellous help I have received from your service department. Firstly, Rob came very quickly to my boat and diagnosed the problem and then along came Peter to actually carry the work out.  The work was carried out with great speed and professionalism coupled with immense charm and helpfulness.

     

    I am extremely grateful to your company and I would have no hesitation in recommending your service department and, in particular, Peter, who is clearly both highly skilled and very knowledgeable and could not have done more.

     

    Thank you again."
