Our 15,000th job was booked by Sweet Dreams, a 44’ custom built ocean cruising yacht. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are gifting this job to mark the occasion.
Since her launch in 2007, Sweet Dreams has cruised extensively in UK’s waters, with the west coast of Scotland being her familiar sailing ground in her early days. 2011 was the start of their adventures further afield. They started by crossing the North Sea, then embarked on a four year trip cruising the beautiful coasts of Sweden, Denmark, the Aland Islands and Finland, making it as far as Helsinki. In 2014 they returned to their familiar sailing grounds on the west coast of Scotland where they spent the summer. 2016 brought yet more adventures for the couple as they ventured south; via the east coast of Ireland to the Channel Island the Brittany. The following year the pair cruised down the west coast of France, finishing up in La Rochelle.
