We will provide the owner with a comprehensive report constructed from notes taken while underway. The delivery reports are very helpful to new and used boat owners. A yacht delivery survey provides valuable information for future maintenance or needed upgrades. The delivery survey is free, no additional cost to the owner, it is part of our delivery fee.

First concern is for the safety of the yacht and those aboard her. We can provide complete yacht inspection and delivery service or assist and train owners in the safe operation of their new yacht.

Rates are competitive, fair and in-line with our competition.

Please call to discuss your yacht delivery needs whether urgent or routine.

Vessels and itineraries vary considerably and therefore it is not practical to set one rate for yacht delivery.

We generally contract deliveries for an all inclusive delivery service fee based upon a number of factors including: route and season proposed - vessel speed, equipment, condition and the number of crew required. The delivery service fee covers crew wages, transportation, and provisions for the duration of the delivery. Fuel, moorage, outfitting and repairs are billed at the completion of delivery at our direct cost.

We will deliver boats from 40ft to 85ft to offshore locations, anything smaller may be considered but the vessel must be in excellent condition.

Owners are expected to supply all US Coast Guard required equipment. The captain will verify the USCG-required equipment list prior to departure.

Owners are also expected to carry adequate insurance on the vessel, including covering the captain.

Boat deliveries can include operational training enroute for the owner and/or family members or passengers, if desired at extra cost.

If you would like a quote for the delivery of your vessel please call our office. We will be pleased to assist you in every way possible.
