About UsLuxury Motor Boats and Yachts
Breakwater Charters are a highly motivated professional team with a great sense of humour, fun and adventure.
We thrive on making all our events seem effortless but thoroughly enjoyable.
Breakwater Charters are extremely conscientious to all our clients needs from a corporate / team building activity day to personal tuition, where we work closely with boat owners helping them to build confidence in the handling of their boats.
Breakwater Charters can also run a discrete but efficient ship whilst an owner entertains family, friends or clients.
Our principle skipper is Ted Duff.
Ted brings 23yrs experience in boating. Starting off as a hobby, he has built to his present qualifications and has countless thousands of sea miles to date.
Ted has delivered boats from 24’ to 90’ in a variety of locations, both local and long distance.
Examples include deliveries from The Stockholm Archipelago in the Baltic Sea to crossing the Bay Of Biscay en-route to the Mediterranean & the Balearic Islands.
He has also delivered boats from Italy to Turkey Via the Greek Islands.
Having worked as a freelance instructor on vessels such as Sunseeker, Princess, Fairline and Ferretti.
Ted has introduced new clients to the joys of boating and upgraded existing clients on their boat handing skills, Ted has also extensively skippered boats for charter. Looking after clients & ensuring that their day is memorable & fun packed, ensuring their desire to come back time after time.
He is currently acting as Captain on a new 62ft Princess that is coded for charter.
Over the past 5yrs he has also worked extensively for a couple of sub sea level survey companies acting as Master on their own vessels.
The most recent being a 24.8mtr steel vessel with a GRT of 87.45 tons with a maximum cruising speed of 8knts, (a little different from the modern motor cruiser)
Ted has a commercially endorsed license to 200GRT During 2008 Ted acted as Captain for a client who wanted to cruise the Greek islands.
Breakwater Charters first delivered the boat from Italy to Crete. With Ted as Captain they enjoyed touring the Aegean Islands before heading through the Corinth Canal to the Ionian Islands ending up in Corfu.
At the end of the season Breakwater Charters delivered the boat back to Antibes in the South of France.
The client was so satisfied with the service provided, he will be using Breakwater Charters services again for an upcoming family trip to Sardinia & Corsica.
