Yacht Deliveries with us

We have been moving yachts since 1999. Use this expertise to have your yacht delivery safely and reliable in Europe or worldwide.

On her own keel:

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. Just come with us and get to know a new route!

How does a delivery 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 couted 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, we will arrange for replacement). Once the ship has arrived, you can expect a documentation, a clean, well-maintained ship 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.

Experience and seamanship lead the way, when it comes to yacht deliveries

  • Worldwide – we know the common routes ….

  • Top – our claim is always a perfect job.

  • Fair – towards customers and employees.

For us:

The costs of yacht deliveries are composed of several factors: for example, the wages, the operating costs of the yacht and the travel costs. We strive to keep costs to a minimum in the interests of the customer. For this purpose, we use favorable weather windows, for example, in order to make rapid progress and to minimize fuel consumption. Likewise, we also anchor at stopovers, instead of entering the port. We choose the crew strength in such a way that it makes sense both nautically and economically. For travel connections, we choose the cheapest solutions.

Optionally, a second skipper as a co-skipper, which causes additional costs, sometimes makes sense.

Always included in the price are:

  • Weather and trip routing through our network.
  • Nautical charts and almanacs for the passage.
  • A satellite communicator for ocean cruises.
  • A Crew Guarantee – If someone has to leave, we will send somebody else.
  • A Skipper Guarantee – If the skipper has to leave or gets sick, we will send somebody else.

As an owner, you want to keep the cost of a yacht delivery as low as possible. It only takes a few clicks on the internet to find a skipper with a crew who performs a yacht delivery. Please keep in mind: Yacht deliveries can be a cost trap, if done without sense and reason. Small mistakes can have big effects at sea. Sometimes we take over yachts that are left behind by other skippers along the wayside, because they were overwhelmed with the situation. Something like that will not happen with us: Our prices for yacht deliveries are designed to work with professionals, who help to avoid unnecessary costs. Good advice is never expensive in such a network. Last but not least, the customer benefits from this – and that is you.

If someone needs to get off the boat or gets sick, we will immediately arrange for replacement – promised!

Our skippers have enough nautical miles, the required qualifications according to european standards for professional sailing, and experience in various areas with a variety of different types of ships. For us, good seamanship means reliability, a sense of responsibility, technical know-how, friendliness and communication skills.

We have up to date nautical charts, mobile AIS, satellite communications, modern Weather-routing software and other professional equipment.

Our skippers have a valid liability for professional sailors

We usually do not accept paying guests on a yacht delivery because their demands often do not meet the requirements we have for crew members. if you wish to lower the cost of your yacht delivery by doing so, please tell us!

Nothing is carved in stone at sea. We stay flexible. And through our network, we can offer you individual and affordable solutions for your change of place.

We often have owners aboard and coach them during the delivery.

Nachdem wir mittlerweile wieder in unserem Heimathafen Breskens angekommen sind, möchte ich mich bei Ihnen nochmals für die professionelle Durchführung des Überführungstörns bedanken. Wir konnten unser Schiff in einem besseren Zustand übernehmen als ich es übergeben habe! Jetzt haben wir schon zum dritten Mal Ihre Dienste in Anspruch genommen und waren jedes Mal sehr zufrieden. Dies gilt uneingeschränkt auch für dieses Mal, bei dem das Nordseewetter – selbst im Hochsommer – leider nicht mitgespielt hat. Ich kann Ihre Dienste uneingeschränkt empfehlen und komme gern beim nächsten Mal wieder auf Sie zu.

Viele Grüße
