Owner Orientation and Training

On all deliveries there is a fixed number of items for which an estimate is given. In addition to Crew Fees, published below, they are:

• Transportation to and from the yacht for captain and crew (based on the least            expensive current airfare/car rental) and includes taxis and other transportation        costs incurred while on service, such as Customs visits);

• Provisioning (includes food and beverages, cleaning and protective materials); and,
• Administrative fees

These estimated costs will be based on the boat's location, condition, destination and
any particulars of the schedule (i.e. uncommon urgency).

Variable costs, as follows, are billed to the customer at the conclusion of the delivery:

• Spares and mission critical yacht equipment (e.g. spare fuel and oil filters, impellers, fan belts, replacement      running rigging, liferaft rental);
• Fuel, motor and gear oil, power steering fluid, coolant;
• Customs/Immigration and Dockage fees;

Crew fees are as follows:
Captain------------------ $675 per day
First mate--------------- $500 per day

Deckhand---------------- $250 per day (when mandated by the insurance company)

Captain----------------------- $4.00 per mile on the rhumb line on customary routes.
First Mate-------------------- $4.00 per mile on the rhumb line on customary routes.

Deckhand-------------------- $2.00 per mile on the rhumb line on customary routes.


Fees are calculated individually for each transoceanic passage, depending upon origin, destination, total miles, number of stops required, possible crew changes, etc, and the delivery is quoted as a flat rate.

A 3rd crew member is required on all offshore deliveries, and at times when insurance requires it.
On a coastal delivery the boat is expected to be under way within 48 hours of the joining by crew. Planning no stops, the hand-over will be made within 24 hours
of docking at the destination.

On an offshore delivery the captain and crew are expected to be under way within 72 hours of joining the boat, not making any unscheduled stops, and the hand-over will be made within 48 hours of docking.

The delivery may be delayed for technical, administrative, or weather-related reasons beyond the skipper's control. In the event of a delay, the owner/client will be charged $300 per each 24 delay day for crew plus associated costs such as repairs, procurement of parts and equipment, and related ground transportation and telephone calls.


The terms for a delivery are:
50% down payment with a signed Delivery Agreement and an Insurance Rider stating that the Captain and crew are covered under the boat’s insurance for the passage.
The balance plus reimbursed expenses are due when the boat is delivered.

Reimbursed Expenses

Any spare parts needed for the passage, i.e. filters, belts, impellors, and boat supplies, including but not limited to oil, coolant, gear oil, steering fluid; any dockage, customs fees and fuel purchased during the delivery will be added to the final invoice.
