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.
" Thanks to the whole Buechi team for a great holiday with the family on the "Gaia". Even though the weather (mistral) did not play along, we were once again greeted by a well-kept and intact sailing yacht and the cordiality of the entire team. Kind regards"
Family B - Gaia 2021
"Dear Buechi family, Dear Buechi team, a few days have already passed and our sailing trip with "CLEO" has become history. We had a wonderful sailing trip with a great ship and an extremely friendly, committed and customer-oriented crew at the charter base. Thank you very much for everything you have done for us! You made it possible for us to have a wonderful and untroubled cruise. It was also great that Martin made the handover with us and that we were able to get to know his 2nd home. Many greetings to him! We will gladly come to you again. We are already dreaming of a trip just the two of us with Martin. Best regards"
T and M.E. - Cleo 2021

"Dear Carolin, dear Patrice, now we have chartered the 3rd time with you. Yvette and I would like to thank you and your team very much. You have contributed so much to our well-being without expecting anything in return. Our holidays with you and with you have left a deep impression on us. Thank you very much for that. It is just like that with you, to arrive and feel good. This is how it was with the Paraty in September. Yvette and I hope that you will continue this for many years to come. We are sure that many of your clients will feel the same way. We have already sailed some of your yachts and we have nothing really to complain about. The two of you and the team are very much appreciated and we would like to thank you again for your warm and professional commitment. Until we have our own boat, we will stay with you. Best wishes from Yvette and Mario
Y.+M.B. - Paraty 2020
"Very good! Very satisfied all around - hardly any possibility to make this even better! I have already organised many cruises. But never before has the entire process run so smoothly and above all so customer-oriented. Many thanks for this. I am happy to recommend Buechi Yachting to others. I am looking forward to seeing you again.
R.M. - Ningaloo II 2020
"Very friendly and competent, you take your time for questions. Yacht in top condition, perfectly equipped. Suggestion for improvement: Point out at the briefing to shallow water in the harbour, we have discovered this in the folder!".
D.K. - Papillon 2020
"Pleasant, friendly, uncomplicated! On "Hideaway" we felt very comfortable again. Thank you for the prompt repair of the sail and the accommodating handling".
A.R. - Hideaway 2020

B.K. - Gaia 2020
"After 20 years as shipowners we chartered "Canugadue" for a week in June, for a family cruise. Boat absolutely in order, very, very clean, with sails, sheets and halyards of quality and outboard engine with still the signs of factory. Impressed to find the refills for the self-inflating jackets and the tester on board. Quick and precise check in and check out, great helpfulness and courtesy. We will be back at the end of July! Thanks".
Stefano, Chiara, Marta, Elia - Canugadue 2020

Everything was perfectly organized, from the signing of the contract, the arrival at your nautical base with a friendly check-in and handover of all necessary documents, to the restitution of the yacht. The ship was in an impeccable condition. Dear Buechi Team we thank you for your great work, which you do for us again and again. Your dedication makes the holiday a real pleasure. We feel at home with you and will remain true to you also in the future”
M.W. + F.S. - Eos 2020
"Very nice, helpful and flexible. Thanks :-)"
B.M - Gaia 2020
"Dear Carolin, for the seventh time I chartered a yacht from Buechi Yachting and for the seventh time I was fully satisfied. An enchanting sailing area, absolutely reliable yachts and the Buechi team, always friendly, competent and helpful, are a real stroke of luck for all those who want to combine sailing with a wonderful holiday. And I'm sure: even on my eighth voyage with a Buechi yacht I'll be stopping at one or two ports or bays in the Tuscan archipelago or Corsica that I haven't yet explored. I'm looking forward to it! Dear Carolin, it was very nice again. It will be tough if my next sailing with "Gaia" should fails due to the new pandemic, but I definitely want to make a try! Yours sincerely, C."
C.v.K - Gaia 2020
"Very professional from trip planning and support during the trip to the return of the yacht after the cruise. Many thanks for the reservation of berths in the harbours.
F.B. - Mina 2020
" Older boat (note: built in 2008), but very well maintained! Lovely and friendly assistance!"
O.B. - Lady Lale 2020
"Dear Carolin, a THANK YOU to your tireless hands. I would also like to add that your long-time "cleaning team" is doing a great job; thank you! Please find attached the evaluation questionnaire, what should I tick? The 4th column is missing ! For example, "very much" or "above average" is missing for reception/gentleness/maintenance/assistance! My best regards, T.
T.M. - Mina 2020
Dear Mrs Buechi! Unfortunately, we did not manage to say goodbye to you personally when we left. We spontaneously decided to take an earlier ferry at 8 am. Nevertheless we wanted to thank you and your team for a great week. We had a wonderful cruise full of adventure. We are very grateful to have had a trusty boat with “Iris”! Many greetings."
L.B. - Iris 2020
"Carolin makes it possible! With no other charter company would I book a 10-year-old ship! Excellent maintenance!"
I.W. - Iris 2020
"Service: Excellent! Especially your support in booking berths at our destination ports was very helpful!
B.T. - Lady Lale 2020
"We were more than satisfied for the second time in five years! It's the best we could wish for".
J.H. - Papillon 2020
"Thank you very much for your personal and attentive service - from boat reservation to detailed briefing, check-in and uncomplicated check-out. Many thanks also for the reservation of berths in the marinas. The whole team is very helpful and friendly. It was a wonderful week on Kiriwina. The yacht was in perfect condition. We are glad to have made our first charter at Buechi Yachting. We will definitely come back!"
K.+U.T. - Kiriwina 2020
"Dear Mrs. Buechi, as I do not have the possibility to print your questionnaire at the moment, I will answer you even without the crosses and I hope that it will still be of help to you. I can give you the best feedback on all the evaluation points. The booking and the reception were very friendly. I really appreciated the clear briefing. The condition of the boat, as well as the equipment, was good. The boat was also very clean and the check out proceeded without any problems. One point. The sails, especially the mainsail, are a bit old and in my opinion no longer optimal. I have no other suggestions for improvement and I would certainly book with you again. We found you over the Internet. The cruise was very pleasant, to which you, your team and the well maintained boat contributed. Thank you very much. I wish you to continue to be successful even in these difficult times. Goodbye!"
F. B. - Eos 2020
"All very well! It's fine that the moorings in your marina can be used free of charge during the week. Thanks again for the prompt service when getting stuck in a fishing line and for the good tips when berthing!
A.B. - Canugadue 2020
"Very, very good, also the innovation of the pizza on Saturday evening at your marina, very pleasant". From the first booking enquiry to the disembarking operations, you are in perfect hands. The professional management of the pandemic crisis should be underlined. We have always been very well informed and felt very secure both at departure and throughout the cruise. As always an unforgettable holiday, an unsurpassed service. 100% recommendable. Thanks to the whole team. Of course we will come back".
U.R. - Eos 2020
"Perfect. Professional assistance even for small "problems" during the cruise.
A.K. - Iris 2020
"Very good! We'll come back! Very correct if you need to change your booking".

U.B. - Gaia 2020
"Everything went well :-) The service was perfect and I had never received such a well prepared boat before. Simply top! A compliment to the whole team!"
P.W. - Damare 2020
"Salü (swiss greeting) Carolin, we managed to spend another week on the beach of Lacona (VSMaria) after the wonderful week of sailing. For us, as a family, it was a really exceptional holiday, with many new experiences, impressions and stories. As already mentioned, the danger of a repetition is enormous.... ;-) Your service with the free transfer from the ferry port or bus station is above average, and the car-free travel is possible without any problems".
Family W - Eos 2020
"Hello, Carolin and thank you. We really enjoyed our time together with you. For us it is much more important to be well looked after and get a well maintained ship than to find the cheapest offer. With you we had both, so as to say: the quality/price proportion is right and we always had the feeling that you like to take care of your guests. It was really great. Your service is very good, warm and personal, an important positive difference compared to many other charter companies".
Family G. - Ningaloo II 2020
"Dear Carolin, we will not forget this holiday for the rest of our lives, because it was a unique and very special experience. Many thanks to you and your team for making this possible. For us it was not obvious to be able to leave in these conditions and so soon after the travel restrictions had been removed. Thanks to your excellent precautions, you have ensured that we felt protected and safe from the virus at all times, thank you once again. And then there's your sea, sun, wind - this deceleration took us away from all the worrying news and professional constraints... simply super relaxant. Best wishes to you and your team".
K.+M.B. - Lady Lale 2020
"We were among the first charter guests of the Buechi Yachting in the 2020 season. The Bavaria 42 Cruiser we rented was built in 2009, well maintained and equipped with all comforts. The pleasure of sailing could be enjoyed by us throughout the week. The sailing area is very varied, long and short distances can be planned very well. Buechi Yachting is a serious and correct charter company. We will be glad to come back and can definitely recommend Buechi Yachting.
Dr. M.W. - Canugadue 2020
"I would like to thank you for the extremely detailed and valid information that you have sent us together with the charter agreement. I am looking forward to the first cruise with Buechi Yachting. We have already heard so many good things about this company from friends"!
M.S. - Hideaway 2020
"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.
L. A. – Mina 2019
"Good! Some minor damages caused by us to the sails have been repaired immediately and free of charge!"
J.K. - Iris 2019

U.S. - Damare 2019
"Dear Carolin, our holiday is over, we are home again in the coldness. ☹ Once again it was a nice end of summer, which we could enjoy on one of your boats. Everything went perfectly again and the weather (for sailing) this year was really excellent. A big THANK YOU to you and your team. We are always happy whenever we can come back to you. Another crew asked us why we don't rent the boats on the mainland and then sail to Elba. Actually it would be obvious. Our answer was: it's because of Buechis and their service which we always find fascinating.
K.G. - Canugadue 2019
"A cordial hello to Mrs. Michel, Carolin, Patrice and the rest of the Buechi team. Our last cruise is dated just a few days ago and it's time for our comments. These are summed up in a few words: You are a fantastic team, thank you! We have been renting for more than 20 years, we have owned a small yacht ourselves and we know what is necessary to keep a boat in perfect condition. I would have to think very, very long before I could find something that would improve the quality of your work even more. A big, big compliment for the great service you provide as well as the warm and friendly welcoming. See you next time, soon! Get out of this season and enter into the New Year! Best wishes. Thomas together with family and friends.
T.F. - Nina Katharina 2019
"Dear Carolin Buechi, we have returned safely at the Lake of Konstanz and we would like to thank you once again! You have assisted us so well on our first sailing trip on Elba that it could not have been better. Perfectly equipped ship, top clean, great tips and constantly available! We would be happy to come back next year. As soon as our holiday planning is complete, we will book again one of your boats! We are also more than happy to recommend you! Until next year…..keep always a hand's breadth of water under the keel!
P. and A.L. - Gaia 2019
"Hello dear Buechi-Team. Behind us there is another week of wonderful family sailing on the s/y 'Kiriwina'. The yacht was, as always, very well maintained and with everything else in perfect condition. After the super briefing there were no more doubts. We are always pleasantly impressed by the friendliness of the team. Many thanks to Carolin for booking the moorings in the ports, often crowded in high season, and also to Martin for the 'boat taxi' from your embarkation base to the old port of Portoferraio! Our boys and we parents were enthusiastic about it. Best regards also to Mrs Michel, who 'managed' our booking in an optimal way. We will come back in any case. Best regards from the B's.
Family B - Kiriwina 2019
"It is indeed a pleasure to receive such a well-maintained boat. We would like to thank Carolin Buechi once again for booking of berths in the ports and for the restaurants".

H.P. - Gaia 2019

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.

"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."

U.K. – Giglio
“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

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.”
O.O. - Maldimare

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

"Maximum points, because even our special wishes were satisfied."

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!"
