Dependability and Professionalism With Yacht Delivery Services

My Goal is to provide owners and brokers with a very high quality and the greatest value yacht delivery service for the West coast. My many years of  professional boat handling has earned me the extensive experience that I retain today. I prefer a well scheduled  delivery but I work well with last minute appointments as well. I come up with an easy to understand quote, either by the day or by the nautical mile. I DON'T nickel and dime my clients with meal and weather layover or surprise expenses. I do Not hire unnecessary crew which adds to the cost as well, I keep to my objective in a professional manner and never make a vacation out of my delivery's on the clients expense. I carry all my own electronic navigation equipment, as well as life saving gear for redundancy on most of  my Yacht Delivery passages. I do require to be covered under the clients insurance policy.
