As well as the testimonials throughout our website, see a small selection of what a few of our clients had to say about their recent sailing holidays with us, along with some of their photos below.

"We all wanted to write and thank you personally Colin for all you did for us to ensure we enjoyed a truly amazing holiday. From all the pre-holiday administration, done in such a professional and supportive way, through to handback of the boat, You did a fantastic job. THALASSA was in sparkling condition, and well equipped. Your arrival briefing was pitched perfectly; informative, thorough and with the emphasis on all the right things. Your passion for the boat and the area came through positively. The daily weather texts and recommendation of places (and restaurants!) to visit was a real added extra. At the end of the fortnight it was a real wrench to step off THALASSA and we miss her very much. The best bit: all of it! We really couldn’t think of any feedback to give you to improve our experience. Thank you."

"Ten years after using Pinnacle for our 40th birthday celebrations, a group of eight of us decided to return to Corfu for our 50th. Given the service received from Pinnacle on the first occasion, there was no question of using another provider. Even though Colin did not have a yacht big enough for our needs on this occasion, he was able to arrange the charter of a suitable yacht (at a very competitive price). More importantly, we knew we were able to trust Colin to find a properly maintained boat which would present no problems. This proved to be precisely the case and the eight of us enjoyed a marvellous cruise on a lovely big Bavaria 46. Not only fully functional but it was one of the cleanest (and sweetest smelling!) yachts I have been on. We also enjoyed Colin's low fuss, kind, efficient service, good value, warm welcome at start (eg the wine and beer in the fridge) and end. All in all, another fantastic experience (seems like a beautiful dream already) - we hope we manage to return before our 60th!"

"We have chartered several yachts over the last twelve years from various companies in Greece. Pinnacle appealed to us because as an owner-operated company we received a more personal service. The information provided prior to arrival was most helpful. “Thalassa” is very well maintained and everything we needed was catered for (including a teapot, something we haven't had on Greek yachts in the past!). Colin gave us a thorough handover at the start and was extremely helpful with weather forecasts and route planning during the week. We are already looking forward to our next trip and highly recommend Pinnacle." Harriet and Michael, June 2018
"Colin provided me and my dad with a thorough handover of Thalassa! Here comes a week of bliss! My dad was impressed with how well the boat had been maintained and it was in great condition, Thalassa is impossible not to love! We set off on our first island hop of the adventure. The in mast furling mainsail glided out and then came the Genoa and off we went sailing across the seas. Colin was always close to hand on the phone offering us morning weather reports and advice on the best places to see plus local knowledge on each harbour. We will definitely being returning for more holidays with Pinnacle Yachts, our biggest thanks and highest recommendation to Colin!"
Havana Pearson, May 2018
"A fantastic fortnight of sailing thanks to Pinnacle Yachts. Simply can't fault the quality of the yacht and equipment, and the support provided was excellent. If you're looking for the best bareboat charter in Corfu, you just found it!"
James and Jacqui King, April / May 2018
"Hi Colin, yet again, we had a great time on Thalassa. Thanks for accommodating us and getting Thalassa ready “out of season” – March! We had the distinction of being told by a taverna in Petitri that we were their first visitors of the season. We look forward to seeing you and sailing Thalassa again soon."
Dom, Nicole, Nancy and Stephen, March 2018
"We had a wonderful time from Corfu on Thalassa, such a beautiful area to sail and Thalassa was the perfect yacht to explore on. Colin was so informative and made sure we knew all the best areas to go, we highly recommend Pinnacle Yachts to anyone that wishes to sail the stunning Greek waters."
Rich and Nikki, October 2017
"Thank you for such a great week on Thalassa! Our second time with Pinnacle Yachts, we really enjoyed Thalassa and had an amazing time. Very relaxing too. We got to see Kalami Bay, Lakka, and Gaios on Paxos, Anti Paxos, the Mourtos and Sivota islands and a our new fave swim stop Monodendri beach. Thalassa is very well equipped and comfortable and great to sail. We're already looking forward to the next time ."
Gilles, Karen, Mike and Kat, September 2017
"On behalf of all of us, I'd just like to say we had a fantastic time on Thalassa and you could not have done more to make our charter a success. We hope it won't be too long before we can return and charter from you again but until then we won't hesitate to recommend Pinnacle to our friends."
Alastair, Karen, Calum and Angus Reynolds,
"Hi Colin, thank you for enabling a lovely week in a fantastic cruising area! The yacht worked beautifully and was spacious and comfortable."
Fraser Elms and family, July 2017
"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."
