Regardless of what type of vessel you need delivered we have the experience to help. We work with private owners/managers as well as various commercial brokers. We also provide first and second captain services. There are many reasons to use a yacht/boat delivery skipper;

  • Yacht has been recently purchased so needs delivery to home port
  • Want help from a professional so you can learn about the yacht
  • You are not comfortable operating the vessel at night
  • Your vessel is someplace cold - you want to cruise someplace warm
  • Your insurance company requires a licensed professional captain

Engine RoomIf you are not comfortable delivering a yacht yourself we urge you to hire a professional.

Murphy's Law applies to ocean deliveries probably more that to anything else - stuff happens and you need to have the experience to deal with it. This includes bad weather, equipment failure, getting sick or injured as well as other unforeseen events.


Delivery Cost

The cost depends on several factors some of which are listed below. We would be happy to give you a free estimate for your particular yacht and set of circumstances, just give us a call. You are responsible for vessel expenses and incurred costs (transportation, food, fuel etc.). We can supply you a quote either on a per day basis or by nautical mile.

  • Type of vessel (sail or power) as well as speed and equipment
  • Weather for trip - is it going to be nasty or nice
  • Duration of trip and crew requirements
  • Time of year - it is easier to go down the coast of California than up and have to fight the wind and current especially in winter.

The payment terms require that all expenses be advanced before the delivery is undertaken. The remainder of the payment is due when the delivery is complete or within an acceptable period.

We have over 100,000 nm on the ocean doing deliveries over the past few years.
