It has been about a year since you have taken over the management of our client's 60 meter Feadship. We have previously had two other yacht management companies and even did the work ourselves for several months. I wanted to thank you for your excellent service and let you know how pleased we are in how seamlessly you have taken over and done just what we needed.
