Not every boat owner has the time or indeed the inclination to take their yacht from one cruising ground to another, or perhaps collect it from a point of purchase or deliver to a sales venue.
Whatever your reason for considering a professional yacht delivery; Ocean Yachting can help.
We specialise in sailing yacht and motor boat delivery by sea and over the last 10 years have completed many thousands of miles delivering customers yachts for them.
There is no standard yacht delivery ‘routine’ although most will fall broadly into one of three categories:
1. The Professional Skipper and Crew Yacht Delivery Service.
The crew will collect your yacht from its exiting location and deliver by sea to its new location.
2. The Owner Assist Delivery Service.
The boat owner requests the assistance of a professional and experienced skipper (and crew if necessary) for all or part of a voyage. Indeed, with this service the owner may choose to accompany for all or part of the passage at their own discretion.
3. The Training and Delivery Service.
With this option, the owner would be looking for personal training and tuition as part of the passage; indeed this option extends to those owners who are not looking to relocate their boat but rather receive some instruction on their own yacht from their home port.
The delivery duration and distance is also completely led by the customer. Over the past 10 years delivery passages have ranged from under 10 to over 3000 miles, from 6 hours to 6 weeks.
With skippers qualified to MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Instructor level and above, you can be assured that your yacht will not only be looked after by a highly experienced skipper, but one who will be extremely conscientious and care for your boat in a manner that you would expect.
