“A big thank for the exceptional and always available assistance, very pleasant check-in and check-out, a yacht in perfect condition (Ningaloo II). Thanks for everything!”
M.L. - Ningaloo II
The best references for any company are satisfied guests who enthusiastically come back, year after year.
The following is a short selection of comments which guests have sent us over the years. They motivate us with their appreciation, and allow us to advance thanks to some constructive comments. We hope it will give you an idea of the service we offer and the holiday you can have if you choose us as your charter company.
"Buechi Yachting. Maybe the best charter company we've met in years. Very precise, family-run, they know each boat in detail and keep it at the top of maintenance. In winter, the boats are dismantled and taken to the large square for the winter maintenance. All their boats are well maintained and the company is immediately available for any problem. We had a problem with the stove thermocouple which they immediately replaced. We had a problem with the stern platform engine and they came from their base to Porto Azzurro to fix it. They also helped us to book berths in some ports.
The boat (Mina) was newly launched in May 2019. No major problems everything worked except 3 small problems (kitchen thermocouple, rear door relè, wind station software did not detect the true wind) that however did not affect the outcome of our holiday.
The base is located in an unattractive industrial area but well equipped and still very close by car to the center of Portoferraio. All in all, I believe that Buechi-Yachting is an organization of excellent quality that you can rely on.

As in previous years, once again my crew and I thank you for the perfect service, the courteous manner with which you cuddle your guests, and your great commitment. For several years I have been leasing boats in the Mediterranean, England and Scotland, to the Canary Islands and the island of Cape Verde and I can assure you that you are the best charter company I know. I promised you some pictures of the last cruise. Please be patient because before sending them I must first obtain the authorization from all the participants.

"Dear Carolin, dear Patrice. Thank you so much for your sensational service. We were particularly fascinated by your well-organized transfer from the arrival of the ferry to your base, with the transport of luggage on a cute three-wheeled vehicle while the crew was offered a ride by powerboat. All my family was very happy and as you can see from the last picture taken before leaving, we were all smiling despite the overcrowding we had on board. Since the Easy Jet company had given us the opportunity to extend our stay in Italy a few days, we spent some beautiful days in Pisa and Lucca, without overcrowding! Unfortunately, our camera did not memorize the photographs taken during our cruise, so we have one more reason to come back to you. We wish you a good summer. An affectionate greeting."

G.E. - Imperia 2018
"Dear Carolin, Patrice, we wanted to thank you once again for a really well organized and smooth charter. We were happy with Karin I - she's a good boat - and your assistance and help during the charter was also very much appreciated. We'll certainly consider you for the future and would recommend you to our friends. Some feedback from my side is i) I would recommend considering equipping the boats with outboard grills (they are standard in the Caribbean) and ii) if possible delivering the boats to the renters around noon or so. Overall, we were happy with our experience with Buechi. Thank you once again! Best."
K., L., P. and A. - Karin I
"I would highly recommend chartering a Yacht from Buechi Yachting in Portoferraio, Elba. Patrice and Carolin run a very efficient yacht charter operation. The boats are well maintained, clean and well equipped. Patrice and Carolin are also very helpful, friendly and kind. They collected and dropped us to the Piombino ferry & went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to help us on our sailing holiday around Elba Island."

“We had two wonderful weeks on “Maldimare”, full of excitement. We have tasted the sweetness of life on board. Besides sailing we had a lot of fun fishing, going around with the tender, inspecting the seabed with mask and snorkel, and towing ourselves with a rope fixed to a cleat at the back of the boat. For me, however, my greatest satisfaction was in having my young crew participate, and in the emotions which overcome me when I am in close contact with the sea. Thank you for your friendliness and for the excellent quality of your services. My expectations were all fulfilled.”
R.F. - Maldimare
“Hello Carolin, by now the peak of the season must have passed and you will certainly be feeling calmer. We four would once again like to thank you for a lovely holiday and excellent assistance. For whatever need or problem that came up, we always got the right, very kind advice. We feel like family with you, never left out. You always manage to do things so that at the end of the holiday people go home with good memories. Thanks again. We know we will return, as we have for many years. We don't want to look for other charter companies. We would be disappointed because there couldn't be a better organization than yours. We know that you do everything possible to improve, because you have never been entirely satisfied with what you have done. A fond greeting from Lake Constance.”
U.-A.-E.-F. – Flocalinja
“As always, a warm welcome from Carolin, very professional check-in, boat in an excellent state.”
P.B. – Canugadue

Dr. J.R. - Giglio
“Good morning Carolin. We had a wonderful week. No problems. The only unusual event: the cover of the cabin light fell off because of a big wave. We are actually moored in Marciana Marina now and will arrive back at your base around 5:00 pm. You and your perfect service are an excellent reason for us to return in the future.”
L.R. - Karin
“Good morning to the whole Buechi Yachting team. We want to thank you again. 'Maldimare' was perfectly cared for and looks great, in spite of the not few miles that have slipped beneath her keel. We were able to sail in full tranquility, thanks to the fact that everything worked perfectly. Having arrived without a car, afterwards we very much appreciated the delivery on board of the kitchen stores bought in the nearby commercial centre and, in particular, the fun and practical dinghy taxi service. Our holiday was perfect, also thanks to the wind which was never lacking. We'll certainly come back. I take this opportunity again to apologise for having given back the boat with a few scratches on the hull. We wish you a good end of season and are thinking already with pleasure of our next holiday on board one of your boats. An affectionate salute.”

E.K. - Iris 2013
“I'm sorry not to have said goodbye to you at the end, but as I mentioned on the telephone I was in a hurry on account of my wife. Unfortunately, she fractured a vertebrate and had to stay lying down for 10 days. However besides that, the holiday was such a pleasure that we want to do it again next year. For me it was an amazing holiday, thanks again to your friendliness which I took advantage of daily by telephoning you with questions and for weather forecasts.”
“After some years during which we discovered new areas of sailing, we have returned to Buechi-Yachting. And we have again been struck by the quality of service, equipment on board, state of the boat and all the assistance; Buechi remains at the top of the list in our view.”
M.K. - Imperia
“This time too we had a week to dream about. Stable weather, a beautiful boat, a very friendly atmosphere, and efficient help. Our compliments to all the Buechi team. Also your suggestion of staying a night in the new tourist port of San Vincenzo was just right. That all the wind of the week was concentrated on the one day of Friday didn't lower our satisfaction. Thank you again for everything.”C.+ C.S. - Canugadue

A.P. – Ningaloo
"Maximum points, because even our special wishes were satisfied."
"Patrice’s friendliness at our arrival and check-in are always the best start to a cruise. And after the wind, sun and Italian cooking, a check-out without problems. We’ll come back for the eighth time."
M.B. – Karin
"The best: Through my sailing school and during the last 2 years I have met not a few charter companies who thought they were offering a first class service and top yachts. Many of them still have a lot to learn!"
S.K. – Imperia
