As captain of S/Y Halekai I can say that EDS, consistently exceeded our expectations with their exceptional service and unwavering commitment our trip. Their meticulous planning and attention to detail ensured that every aspect of our yachting experience was seamlessly handled, from navigating local waters to securing top-quality provisions. EDS's team of experienced professionals was always readily available to provide expert advice and assistance, making them an indispensable partner for any yacht owner or captain. We wouldn't of been able to do this trip without them in the remote islands off Sumatra.

EDS employees were very easy to work with, they were very knowledgeable in their area of expertise. Even after leaving the drydock in Jakarta, they were there and always within phone reach for consultations on our mechanical issues on the way to Bali and were quick to come onboard to resolve our issues. They were very accommodating and very flexible to what ever we needed. Very happy to have met and dealt with EDS.
All aspects of the service were exceptional. The team has a thorough knowledge of the region and were extremely helpful. I would happily recommend them to anyone!

The service from Eighth Degree South has been unquestionably the best I have received anywhere. Their speed of response and willingness to provide advice and assistance at every stage has made negotiating the Indonesian labyrinth of regulations a simple process. I heartily recommend Eighth Degree South to anyone contemplating cruising Indonesia or nearby.
Captain: We engaged Eighth Degree South's services to lay an all-new teak deck on our beautiful 65-foot Swan while in Bali from May to July 2022. Awesome team - hard workers, happy and enthusiastic, good skills, and great progress to have an empty deck ready for final finishing after only a week! We are a happy customer 😉 Owner: Great team of professional workers did a great job on a very complex task (new teak deck on a swan65). Good communication and good value. I’d recommend them without hesitation
