About YachtMovers

Why choose Yachtmovers?

YachtMovers is different from most commercial yacht delivery companies. We don't employ freelance skippers and we're not building a large scale, impersonal delivery business. With YachtMovers, you know who your skipper will be and you can be confident that they have a wealth of experience to rely upon.

Who is Yachtmovers?

YachtMovers is run By Glenn Smallcombe, who provides all of our Assisted Pasages and Bespoke Training. Glenn is a highly experienced, commercially endorsed Yachtmaster Ocean. He first learnt to sail on a Westerly Centaur back in the 1970's. Much has changed since his early days of sailing, before the advent of GPS and chartplotters, but his formative experiences started a lifelong passion.

Many years later Glenn has built up a wealth of sailing experience, logged ten of thousands of sea miles and sailed on a huge variety of different yachts. He has experience as both Sea School Principal and Chief Instructor, having setup and run his own RYA Recognised Training Centre.

Experience you can trust

Through YachtMovers, Glenn has complete numerous successful deliveries and assisted passages, on a wide variety of yachts and over long and short distances.

As a YachtMaster Instructor for more than 10 years, Glenn has taught all of the RYA practical sailing courses, and has lots of experience of preparing candidates for YachtMaster exams. He also regularly taught on the Professional Sail Training development course for one of the most prestigious UK Sea Schools.

From time to time he can also be found racing, skippering in events such at the Round the Island race and the challenging Fastnet race. You can read about his 2013 Fastnet experience here.

Glenn still maintains a passion for the sea that he loves to share. His expertise and contagious enthusiasm, combined with his management expereince, mean that Glenn is a knowledgeable and calm skipper with a thoroughly professional attitude.
