Long Distance Yacht Delivery

Long Distance Yacht Delivery

yacht-delivery-transatlanticThe decision to move a private yacht, power or sail, across the vast oceans on its own bottom, is only arrived at after much thought provoking examination of the options. Whatever the course, the decision to move the vessel is usually predicated on the de-placement being long term – that is the yacht being 2 or 3 years away from home waters, or possibly being offered for sale at the end of cruising.

Availability of alternative options & differing routes will be considered. Timing & efficiency of achieving the objectives will be figured. In many cases the decision to move a vessel on its own bottom is the only rational solution. In many cases the owner’s own affairs will preclude his ability - & often his desire – to be present for any, or all, of the voyage.

The decision being made, at that time the owner will contact his/her insurance carrier to discuss adequate cover for the projected voyage & for the carriers to instruct owners of their requirements: e.g. correct manning of the vessel with experienced mariners; navigational limits of cover relating to time of year, weather, political instability & the vessel’s capabilities etc.

The carrier will want to be assured of the crew’s ability to accomplish the voyage in a safe & timely manner.

At this time the owner will want to put the projected voyage out for bidding to Professional Yacht Delivery people. After much discussion & completing the selection process, the professional captain & crew will want to spend a reasonable amount of time examining all aspects of the vessel to judge its capabilities & level of equipment, financial planning, ensuring the correct papers are aboard & the 100 & 1 details that go into the making of a successful voyage.

Other voyages may well be newly built yachts destined for the charter industry, being delivered by professional crew from their builders to designated cruising grounds around the world. In general these voyages are undertaken because there are no other options on offer.

The value of a professional yacht delivery captain & crew should not be under estimated. Every year the press carries unbelievable stories of yachts, & yacht crew, either being lost at sea, or rescued at some danger & cost to the rescuers. News of successful delivery voyages never makes the headlines.

"A customer is the most important visitor. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. -- Mahatma Gandhi"
