Can I thank you and your company for the excellent service and the skill of your guys fitting my generator. The fitting went like clockwork as promised and I am very pleased with the result. The work was completed to a high standard by helpful and cheerful staff. They went out of their way to stay behind to show me all the controls and the operation of the generator and I would gladly recommend your company to others.

Within just a few minutes of meeting any of the team at Advance Yacht Systems, you realise that you have come to the right people. Their professional and friendly approach combined with a thorough knowledge of their products ensured that I purchased the right equipment for my boat. Labelling hose and electrical connections on the Paguro generator that I purchased was a nice touch and greatly assisted me during self installation. The Paguro itself has proven to be everything that Advance Yacht Systems said it would. With over four months daily use on a commercial vessel, it has remained one hundred percent reliable.
Steve Porter – True Blue – (Light commercial fishing boat)
After much research on the net and Southampton Boat Show I decided on a Paguro 4000 genset and Dessalator watermaker. As my yacht (Amokura) is an old classic, space for this equipment was difficult and needed to be hidden away. Advance Yacht Systems reassured me that they could install the equipment within the constraints and to a professional standard. This is exactly what they have done – very happy punter.
Mr P Phillips – 51’ Classic
Because you are competitive with others, what stood out was your obvious ability to install the systems to my satisfaction. You did better than that, particularly in wiring in a switch between shore power/generator and inverter with further wiring to reduce inverter to systems it could handle (microwave, etc.). Furthermore, you installed an extra skin fitting with pipework at no extra cost. As far as I can see, the work was done better than if the boat had been ordered with the extras fitted.
Mr David Watson – Atlantic 39
I would just like to say how impressed I was by the service and product with respect to the generator you have recently fitted to my SC35, I felt at all times I was dealing with a professional company. The auto pilot upgrade was fitted on Monday and we then proceeded back to Poole, en route we moored in Studland Bay fired up the generator and boiled the electric kettle for its first real test, no problems at all.
Roger Wilson - Sealine SC35
We bought a Paguro generator for our boat from Advance Yacht. As our boat is kept in Greece we drove there with the generator and installed it ourselves. Rod and Caroline gave us excellent advice and told us they would be available by email or phone to talk us through any problems. We did the installation with no trouble whatsoever. The instructions are straightforward. The generator works like a dream. We would recommend Advance Yacht for their personal service and professionalism.

I purchased a Paguro 3000 generator, inverter/charger and a Dessalator water maker from Advance Yacht Systems over two years ago and since then I have been extremely impressed by the company’s level of customer support. The equipment has performed very well, not only during two seasons in the Mediterranean but also during Arc 2009, in the Caribbean and the return to Europe. When technical issues have arisen (and these were minor), Rod Boreham has provided first class service by email or telephone both in and out of office hours to sort matters out, which has been very reassuring and supportive, particularly on the high seas. Advance Yacht Systems also went out of their way to help me initially to find an experienced installer of the kit in the south of France where my boat is normally based.
Ralph Murphy – Moody 44
We are absolutely delighted with the DUO 60 watermaker, it has revolutionised our Med cruising. We do not need to risk our gelcoat in tightly packed harbours of charter boats, and on passage we can top up our tanks whenever we run the engine or generator, on sunny days we can use it using solar power to top up the batteries. Very low maintenance providing good quality water, we fitted the optional sink tap which means we bottle our own water to take ashore or freeze as required if we had contaminated tanks. It was a difficult fit on our Island Packet 420 but this was mainly due to the location that we chose, the unit is compact enough. We fitted everything on the stbd side under the fwd stbd saloon seat and removed some of the outer locker bulkhead and placed a shelf in for it to sit on. It all fitted very tidily and if any other IP420 owners are thinking of fitting one we can send pictures and drawing. A good quality product, thank you.
Sean and Jane Gill - S/Y Happy Hour, IP420
The Installation and fitting out of my Paguro 3000 Compact Generator and Dessalator D60 Cruise AC Watermaker was faultless and very professionally carried out by a team of intelligent and thoughtful people. Great care was taken to avoid any damage to the boat, with dust sheets used extensively. Both pieces of equipment were sited making the best use of available space, but at the same time ensuring easy access for maintenance. All pipes, electrical connections and through hull fittings were carefully and discretely routed after full consultation with me. The level of after sales service is excellent and I certainly could not have done the work myself.
Mr Edward Loden – Dehler 41DS
May we take this opportunity to thank Rod and Wayne for an excellent job carried out with care and precision. We stayed on for a few days to test things out and clean up the boat, neither of which was particularly necessary as things were left in such a good state. They were a pleasure to have on board and their approach to the job bodes well for the continued success of Advance Yacht.
