The above rates are for an Experienced Delivery Skipper with RYA/MCA Commercial Endorsement.  Some larger or more complex vessels may require two skippers, but most do not.

The applicable Skipper Daily Rate (SDR) also includes:


First Mate (Commercial)
Travel Paid
All Additional Crew
Crew Pay Own travel


This means that for a typical delivery you pay the SDR + his/her travel and expenses, but you do NOT pay for a First Mate or any other crew.   The travel expenses of the First Mate ARE paid, but any other crew pay their own travel expenses.  We will source experienced and qualified crew at no cost to you, and also manage their travel and logistics.   


A First Mate will always be RYA/MCA Qualified with Commercial Endorsement, with relevant experience, and additional crew will normally be qualified - usually to RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore standard.


Additional costs to consider are fuel and any harbour dues, and ensuring that the vessel is maintained to a state which will make the proposed passage safe and efficient - this includes making sure that the relevant charts and publications are on-board, and that any lifejackets / liferafts are present and serviced.


We will discuss your requirements with you in person at our offices, or by telephone and e-mail.    The full delivery fee is paid in advance, based on the agreed number of days.    If the delivery takes less time you will be refunded for every day (24hrs) not used.   If it takes longer you will need to pay the additional SDR 7 days after completion.   Normally this is agreed at the time, and you can decide if you want to proceed or continue.


Any days spent in port due to mechanical breakdown or weather are charged at 75% of the SDR, although it is quite rare that this is ever needed / charged.






What Type and Size of Vessels Do You Work On?


Our Skippers and Instructors with whom you contract, are Commerically Endorsed, Certified and Experienced for a range of craft up to 24 metres load-line length.  This includes monohull yachts, powerboats and motor cruisers, and those of catamaran and trimaran design also.


Our Professional Yacht Delivery Skippers are experienced in yachts and boats from just 20 feet to almost 80 feet - the majority of our yacht deliveries are undertaken on vessels between 30 - 60 feet.








Where Do Yo Operate Yacht Deliveries and Related Services?

We operate domestically in and around the U.K. coastal waters, Europe, Middle-East and Africa, Mediterranean and other worldwide locations.    Common yacht delivery and collection locations include Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Italy, France, Spain, Gibraltar, Azores, North and South America, Trans-Atlantic passages and many more.


Yacht asset tracing and investigation services are primarly shorebased, from our offices in Largs, Scotland, with perhaps some travel if this is deemed necessary.  For asset tracing and investigations with an operational dimension, particularly if it may involve travel outside the E.U., you should contact us to discuss your requirements.








When Do You Operate?

We provide services 365 Days Per Year, including holidays. We offer a telephone contact service from 0900hrs – 2100hrs (GMT) 7 Days Per Week, and a website live-chat and e-mail service 24 hours. We also provide a 24hrs / 365 Days Emergency / Rapid Response Service*.

Advance enquiries and booking, where possible, is recommended as we are subject to availability and location of staff and other resources when used for other business operations.
