Yacht deliveries are charged a one time fee of €99 to cover 'set up' costs, plus €149 per day plus expenses. Where additional crew are required they are charged at €99 per day per crew member, plus their expenses. Day rates are reduced by 60% wherever it may be necessary to lay over to avoid bad weather.
Short deliveries up to 300 NM require a skipper plus one crew, longer passages require two crew.
Expenses are budget travel costs to and from the yacht, food, fuel and berthing costs, where needed. We aim to keep expenses to the minimum.

Each delivery is unique; the vessel, the owner, the start and end points and the timings are different. Nevertheless, preparation is key and time goes in to making sure yacht and crew are ready for the journey in hand and all documentation necessary for the trip is available. A report is provided to confirm this. Regular updates are provided throughout the trip (mobile phone and / or internet coverage permitting). A prudent approach is taken at all times, considering the weather, use of engine and sails, stresses on your yacht and the delivery schedule; safety is paramount and risks will not be taken. At the destination, the vessel is cleaned, replenished, checked over and final delivery report also provided.
"As a yacht owner myself, you can be sure your yacht is in good hands and will be treated as my own"
