"Thank you Colin for an amazing holiday - as the advert promised the boat was in beautiful condition, and really well equipped. Everything functioned smoothly and she was easy to motor or sail. Your briefing was thorough and you clearly know the boat and area intimately. It was really easy to build an itinerary with your daily weather reports, texts and recommendation of idyllic bays / villages to visit. The five of us had a wonderful holiday on Thalassa and would love to come back." Matt and Louise, July 2017
"Our fourth charter with Pinnacle yachts but the first as Skippers! What a fantastic time we had. We had no doubt that we wanted to have Thalassa for our first sail – it is a lovely boat which handles well and is very well equipped. We have chartered with Colin for a few years now and he has always provided an excellent service. He regularly updates you on the weather and is always at the end of a phone to answer any query or provide advice and guidance. He has a very professional but relaxed approach to the pre-sailing briefing and he was able to put our minds at ease over our 'maiden voyage'. We will definitely be returning next year."
Pete and Pam, June 2017
"Another great week of sailing with Pinnacle Yachts! Bareboat again but on Thalassa this time. A friend of ours, who has considerable experience of charter yachts, said he couldn’t believe how well equipped and maintained it was. Praise well deserved. Already plotting our next charter."
James, Jacqui, John and Caroline April / May 2017
"Our seventh charter with Colin and an amazing time as ever. Thalassa is fantastic for all, groups, couples or families with children etc. Thalassa is well equipped and meticulously maintained. Colin’s daily weather forecasts are invaluable and he is always at the end of the phone should you need him. We love the North Ionian for its variety of harbours and anchorages. You can enjoy peace, tranquility and remoteness or busy bustling quaysides. The landscape and wildlife are breathtaking – keep an eye out for those dolphins."

"What a pleasure to return for the third time to sail with Pinnacle Yachts. My crew of three older guys and myself have all sailed with many different Flotilla and Charter companies over the years and have become used to boats that are well past there “Sell By Date” and it is with the greatest pleasure that I can tell all that read this testimonial that the Pinnacle boats are the best prepared and looked after in the whole of the Med. The sailing area is also one of the best and most varied and providing you have a certain amount of boat skills then you will have the best holiday. Thank you Colin once again and we will definitely see you in 2018."
Paul, Richard, Tim, and Sam, September 2016
“This was our first attempt at bareboating having been on a few flotillas. The whole experience was a pleasure, Colin could not have done more for us. We had a great week with 6 adults on Thalassa visiting a range of destinations recommended by Colin. We loved the yacht, it was well maintained and a pleasure to sail. Thank you Colin, we'll be back!” Martin and Linda, August / September 2016
“This is our third charter with Pinnacle, our first on Thalassa. The booking process was as always effortless. Thalassa had ample space for our 4 adults and 3 children. The boat is exceptionally well maintained and doesn't feel like a charter vessel. We headed down to the Southern Ionian with exciting sailing, quiet anchorages and clear night skies for stargazing. Pinnacle know and love the Ionian and Colin is a wealth of knowledge and supplies daily weather updates and information. Another brilliant holiday, already looking forward to next year!” Rory Broxham, Ruth Donaldson and crew, July / August 2016
“We have now chartered Thalassa from Pinnacle Yachts three times and have always found the boat to be in immaculate condition and fantastic to sail. The sailing area around Corfu, the mainland and islands to the south are superb with good beaches and great places to eat. I can highly recommend Pinnacle for a superb sailing holiday.” Dan Farmer and crew, June 2016
"This was our third charter with Pinnacle and this time we enjoyed the luxury of Thalassa, what a superb boat. As ever the support and service from Colin was top notch, the daily weather texts being particularly useful."
Peter and Margaret Struggles, May/June 2016
"Pinnacle is the best company that we have chartered from. Colin provides a professional, helpful and relaxed service and we thoroughly enjoyed being on Thalassa as she sails so well and is a very comfortable and well equipped yacht." David and Liz Knight, June 2016
"Had a brilliant week on the Sirokos in early September. We too had withdrawal symptoms after leaving her. Your service was marvellous and many thanks for your assistance in finding accommodation nearby on our return. Cruising area is vast and we only saw a small piece, so will return. Beautiful places galore to see. Thanks again." Margaret and Steve, September 2015
"We have three children and this was the first time we've chartered outside of the UK. We were really pleased that we chose Pinnacle and would choose them again. The boat was very clean and well maintained and we received an excellent personal service, before, during and after our holiday. We highly recommend Pinnacle."
Matt and Liz Crudgington, August 2015
"Thanks Sue and Colin- what a perfectly maintained boat (Thalassa), helpful briefing and flexible returns process, and a great price too. We'll be back soon."
Ralph and Joanna, August 2015
"Our second time with Pinnacle and we found new and beautiful bays and revisited a couple of old haunts. The ease of the handover and the maintenance of the yachts was, as ever, superb. Thanks to you both."
Richard Di, Tim and Eve, July 2015
