Subject: Review of Canvas work
Message: December 2020 Virginia and Todd Catana 471 Catamaran We have enjoyed working with Raif and his highly skilled craftsmen from Yacht & Home Montenegro. Raif came by our boat after we had settled in to our winter berth in Porto Montenegro, and explained their services with an accompanying brochure. After 5 years sailing the Med, we have found that it can take a while to locate a boat service company/technician that we can clearly communicate the specifics of a project with, as we only speak English. Between the excellent communication and the creative genius of Engin,with assistance from Bekir, our cockpit enclosure exceeded expectations. The many thoughtful details and quality of workmanship spoke to their 20 years of experience in the industry. We felt the price was very fair and appreciated the high quality materials used. We can recommend Yacht & Home Montenegro without reservation for your canvas and upholstery projects.
Dear Raif, 6th June 2020
I would like to express my excitement about the result of the works you did on the interior of my SY “Selena inspired by Nirvana”
The fabrics and especially the craft works are done excellent and it gives a completely new feeling inside my yacht.
I can just congratulate you for your team and professionalism in all the process and will keep on working with you in the future.
As mentioned I am planning for next year to change the outside cockpit seating and sunbeds.
Kind Regards and keep up the great work,
Michael Neundlinger Owner & Captain on SY “Selena inspired by Nirvana”

We found Y&H to take the time to understand our requirements, explan the options with the benefits and drawbacks effectively communicated and the final outcomes courteously agreed to. In performing the work a highly professional approach with painstaking attention to detail was always seen. The tradesmen would not declare the product complete until they and we were happy with the outcome. The final products exceeded our original expectations in regard to fit and finish.
In summary, good quality has its price, but is definitely value for money. We would happily use their services again and recommend them to anyone requiring high quality professional services.

I want to thank you for the perfect service you have given me for the delivery / installation of my new offshore Hydranet sails & ropes , for my new mattress and the new filling of my cushions.
Conditions were difficult, however.
On my arrival in Tivat in mid-March 2020, Covid 19 broke out violently and I had to be quarantined for 2 weeks.
Thank you for shopping so I had food and drink for 14 days.
After the quarantine you and your colleague came to place the new sails in my berth Bar, at least 70 km from Tivat.
The quality of the new sails from UK Sailmakers Turkey is excellent!
The new cushion filling of my seats and the new mattress are also of excellent quality.
Thanks again !
Hopefully your normal activities will resume as soon as possible after this corona period.

Dear Mr. Raif Saglam
I would like to thank you very much!
You did a very good job on schedule.
In the best quality at a fair price.
You can, of course, mention me as a reference at any time.
I got your contact from the captain of MY VALENTINA ,who was moored on our PS in Porto Montenegro Marina . Our first priority was to have a front window protection cover from mesh.. You came to the boat and you gave direct a good feeling in trust. Very friendly and knew what you were talking about. The sun cover for the front window you made so perfectly in a short time.
After that I was realizing that I want to do more things on the boat. Leather around the bed frames and back panels from the beds. And new materials for the sofas in the master bedroom. I asked you once again for this job. I want to thank you and your team Yacht & Home Montenegro for the perfect finishing, precise work and timing as always. I’m really happy with the results.

All the best.

Many thanks to Raif and his team for the great job they have done making new aft mesh shades for our Bimini and new matresses for our forward V berth and aft master cabin.

We contacted Raif ( YACHT & HOME MONTENEGRO ) after he was recommended to us for upholstery work on our sail yacht. We had bought some beautiful leather hides from the U.K. to cover our dining chairs and needed a highly professional job, they did not disappoint. The team are friendly, creative and exceed expectations, they have now carried out additional projects for us, to an excellent standard and we have no hesitation in recommending their work. The stool is wonderful, we are thrilled :)

I just wanted to say thank you very much to you and your team at Yacht & Home Montenegro for the excellent covers you made for the Oyster 82 Bare Necessities.
Your advice on all aspects shows your experience and level of attention you are willing to go to.
I am a fussy Captain and have had many covers made, but must say, the ones by Y&H in Montenegro are exceptional.
I found taking your advice and letting you do the job as you proposed, really paid off and the covers have been admired where ever we go.
I should note that the owner is also very happy with the result. He could see the value over what we had originally.
I have no hesitation in recommending Yacht & Home Montenegro from my experience.
Very best wishes

I hope you are well.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the guys for the great work you have done for us on Miss Molly. We had a great season and the owner was very happy with all the projects you did. The dinghy pontoon covers fit very well, looks great and it will definitely extend the life of the dinghy. The aft cockpit area closure held up fantastic during the last bad weather we had. South East winds blew up to 60 knots! We look forward to completing the next project with you this Fall.

I look forward to make some new order once i am in Portomontenegro this summer.

To Whom It May Concern—
I am pleased to recommend Yacht & Home Montenegro as a marine service provider. They have provided extensive canvas work for our 16 meter sailing vessel, Kaimi, This work included a full enclosure with vinyl and mesh panels, upholstery covers, sun awnings, windshield mesh shades, and assorted covers for seat pads, hatches, outboard, das, helm seat, windless, etc.
All their work for us was of the highest quality. It was well designed, based on a thorough discussion with us regarding our needs and preferences. They had an extensive variety of materials and have access to the latest and best products from a variety of international manufacturers. Their workmanship was extremely good and the fit of their products was excellent.
The very best thing about Yacht & Home Montenegro is their staff. They are very experienced and conscientious and they are also thoughtful and pleasant to work with. They are good at communicating—they make sure that they understand exactly what the consumer wants but they also make helpful suggestions based on their extensive experience. Throughout our relationship with them it was very clear that they wanted to do the very best job with the very best materials and to produce it on a timely basis.
We have been halftime cruisers for 10 years and full-time live-aboards for almost 4 years sailing in the Americas, Bahamas, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Yacht & Home Montenegro is, without a doubt our favorite provider.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

The cockpit canopy on our Hunter 450 Passage 'Swallow' is really important to us as we live a lot of the time in the cockpit while cruising in the Mediterranean for 5 or 6 months a year. Our existing canopy was tired and a winter storm finished it off! We had a quote in Venice last season so knew approximately the cost, but it couldn't be done there to meet our itinerary. So we decided to have a new one built over winter 16/ 17 in Porto Montenegro where we laid up. Our agent Avel Yachting recommended Yacht and Home as the canvas makers. We were a bit worried about making arrangements from our home in New Zealand as we had some rather special requirements that we knew would work for us, and we weren't sure how this would translate across long distance, and by email. Our canopy had to have individually removable clears and sun shades all round, the forward clear had to have a roll up flap, and the sun shades had to be able clip to the cockpit sides or out to the rails. We got confidence from the careful detailed clarification questions that were asked by Raif Sağlam and his team. Then when we first got the pictures with the construction just as we had imagined it we were both delighted and relieved. But the best was to come when I arrived in Porto Montenegro to prepare for the season, a first task being to erect the canopy. It was just as in the pictures but the double delight was in the detail. Thoughtful ideas like little pockets to tuck the roll-up straps out of sight, clever arrangements to tie to the guard rails and a neat way of simply rolling up the clear window in the canopy top for checking the mainsail set. The stitching and construction were perfect and the panels easy to install and remove. The price was fair and the service impeccable. Best canvas work Iv ever had done anywhere in the world.
