We have been moving yachts since 1999. Use this expertise to have your yacht delivered safely and reliably in Europe or worldwide. Sailing yachts are often transported as deck freight or by truck. We think that ships can be moved in the way they were built for. We do this. Gentle on material and on fair terms, with a handpicked, well trained team, supported by a reliable shore-crew. Why don’t you come with us and get to know new horizons?
How does our yacht delivery service proceed?
We discuss with you how and when we could do the passage. Once all points have been clarified and we agree, we put our crew together, talk to the insurance, coordinate the travel dates, get missing equipment such as nautical charts or papers. Now the yacht can start. The support from the office remains, for example, when it comes to weather routing, spare parts or crew change. Usually we sail longer distances. If the weather does not match, we go to a port, but this is not counted as a working day. Our goal is to move your yacht gently, swiftly and safely to her destination. During the trip you have a crew and skipper guarantee (If someone leaves, you get a replacement). Once we have arrived, you can expect a documentation, a ship-shape yacht and a correct billing. These processes have proven themselves in recent years, both for private and industry customers. We are happy to show our references.
Costs of Yacht Deliveries
The costs of Yacht deliveries are as follows:
1.) A processing fee: Variable, according to the distance and duration of the passage. We charge this fee for the organization of the team from our network, the support by our back office during the Yacht Delivery, and all the work which has to be done before and after.
2.) The pay: Our day rate for a team starts from 290€. For pure waiting day, for example due to weather delay we charge only 165€. Some clients prefer a fixed price.
3.) Additional costs:
- Food 15-20€/Day/Person.
- Travel costs of the crew (we keep it to a minimum)
- Mooring fees (we know the best harbors)
- Co-Skipper: Sometimes it makes sense to pay a second Pro
Included into the price of Yacht deliveries are usually:
- Weather and passage routing by our back office with up to date software
- Nautical charts for the passage
- Satellite communication for high sea passages
- Crew guarantee: If somebody has to leave we try hard to replace him/her
