Mid Atlantic Yacht Services
We continue to receive numerous positive recommendations for Duncan Sweet and his crew at Mid Atlantic Yacht Services who have been assisting the transient yachting community in Horta, Faial since 1992.
They are long standing members of the AYSS (www.AYSS.org) and many of the Superyacht Captains we have spoken with on both sides of the Atlantic have told us of the valuable, friendly and comprehensive services provided by this company. As Captains have told us over the past couple of years: “Every time we come through the Azores, we go to Mid Atlantic Yacht Services, for Duncan is really brilliant to work with, and looks after all our needs” “Duncan is a real star… he’s great to work with” “Duncan is just superb… I couldn’t ask for more!” “This is my 6th time using the full range of Duncan’s yacht services. He’s just fantastic… totally reliable, and always there to help you with anything you need” “We work with Duncan every time we come through the Azores… and literally couldn’t ask for more. He’s a really superb contact, who really goes that ‘extra mile’ to help.”
Firstly, and most importantly, as an AYSS member, prior berthing and arrival formalities can be arranged as well as all shoreside logistics, support & provisioning for visiting owners and guests plus crew changes, transfers and time off ashore. Upon arrival customs, immigration and port clearances are completed quickly & efficiently. Many Superyachts stop to refuel in Horta, and Duncan will provide an advance bunker quotation, complete all formalities and personally supervise all details of fuelling. Their well stocked chandlery can provide almanacs, charts and pilots, lubricants, filters, engine and deck spares, as well as comprehensive local knowledge for anything else needed on or off the yacht.
Mid Atlantic Yacht Services are also a Raymarine Service Centre offering service and repair of electronics as well as diesel engines and generators, rigging repairs and fabrication.
