FrontRow-Marine Ltd are committed to keeping in line with the high standards of customer service we demand and we find them efficient and effective. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Peter Thomas, Director of Hanse Yachts UK.

FrontRow-Marine Ltd took our yacht from the UK to Corfu and back again.
Faultless service, fastidious attention to detail - highly recommended!


Simon Breakwell, Hanse 575 Owner.



"Many thanks for taking such good care of our Hanse 575 on the delivery from Greifswald to the Hamble. When it came to looking after the boat nothing was too much trouble. I was impressed by how carefully various factory issues were documented and how you wrapped everything to protect it from accidental damage. Even having done this the crew were careful to use as little of the boat as was humanly possible. In fact the level of care was so high that I believe the boat was cleaner and in better condition after the delivery than before it. I will have no hesitation in using your team again when we need to move the boat to another location".


Michael Farnworth, Owner of Hanse 575 "Home Turf"



"I first worked with Mervyn on an 82' yacht called "Ocean Leopard" where he was Skipper and employed us to complete an electrical refit. He immediately proved to be an excellent Manager. Since both starting up our own businesses we have come to rely on one another's services ever since, with FrontRow proving to be very reliable, professional and typically organised as I have come to expect of Mervyn!
All in all Mervyn is a great guy I would recommend his company to anyone in the marine trade".


Adam Hartnell, Marine Electrical Ltd.


Mervyn has been working for the UKSA on a freelance basis since July 2011.
During this time I have been very impressed with Mervyn's seamanship & teaching abilities & would have no hesitation in offering him further employment in the future.

Richard Bagguet, United Kingdom Sailing Academy.



I am writing in reference to Mervyn Down who worked in a full time capacity during 2010 and intermittently through 2011 for Clipper Ventures Plc. He was a key member of our Training staff undertaking a variety of different courses ranging from introducing our Crew to sailing and their initial phase of Training through to ensuring they were Race ready before embarking on the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race. Mervyn Skippered both our Clipper 60' and Clipper 68' ocean racing yachts and not only did he instruct the various stages of Training that is a requirement for the Clipper Race he also undertook, as Skipper, corporate events including the Round the Island Race & Cowes Week.


Thea George, Head of Training, Clipper Ventures Plc


Thanks for fitting me in at short notice, much appreciated. Well pleased with the lads you supplied, very professional, would have no hesitation in recommending your services, Well done!


Phil Rogers, Yacht Ocean Rainbow.

I would strongly recommend Mervyn as skipper aboard one of your crewed yachts.

I asked Mervyn to come with me aboard my own 40 foot yacht recently, on a delivery trip from Milford Haven to Falmouth. As an RYA Yachtmaster (Ocean) myself, I may be better placed than most to appreciate his qualities, both as a competent skipper and from the social skills point of view.

As a skipper he gave me great confidence (in some rough weather) and I would be happy to sail with Mervyn again in either good or bad weather.

He has an easy personality and he quickly established a good watch routine. He was careful of my boat and was easily able to bridge the difficult gap of both being in charge as skipper and a paid employee.
