Yacht Delivery Powerboats

Safe Powerboat Yacht Delivery
Your Powerboat yacht is a valuable asset – not just in Pounds, Euros or Dollars – but she is your pride and joy – and you want her looked after. My strategy is to look after your powerboat on delivery as if she was my own – only using crew I personally know and can rely upon.

Professional powerboat deliveries are my speciality - using only qualified and experienced skipper and crew.  Fully insured.

Passage planning and choosing the right safe weather window is paramount to our powerboat delivery ensuring she is delivered on time and on budget – but allowing for Mother Nature’s surprises.

My powerboat and sailing experience
I qualified as an RYA Yacht Master Offshore 20 years ago and have a current commercial endorsement. I have a RYA Power Boat Coastal Skipper licence, also commercially endorsed. From spring 2012 I will be qualified as an RYA instructor affiliated with Hayling Island Sea School – ideal for assisted passages, building sea mile and learning.

I started sailing at the age of 6 in Selsey. Dinghy sailing in East Africa and Cyprus in my teenage years, progressing to a transatlantic passage in the first ARC race in 1986 aboard a Dehler 34 – yes, a small 34 footer with just 4 on board – we won our class and finished 21st across the line out of 208 yachts with a passage time of 17 days, 21 hrs and 21 seconds!
I moved on to be the first mate in the Caribbean on 165 motor yacht, then as a professional yacht skipper of 65 ft charter sailing ketch based in Mallorca for 2 years.

I have raced yachts competitively in the Fastnet, Cowes Week, Channel Races, Spi Ouest, Mount Gay Regatta Barbados, J24 Europeans, Cork 1720 Europeans and Melges 24 Europeans, plus many more. Now more into cruising...and yacht delivery – but if you need tips on tweaking the rig I’m always willing to advise.

Sailing yacht delivery and passages include:
UK to Portugal, Portugal to Casablanca, La Coruna to Ibiza, Cartagena to Mallorca. Cartagena to Minorca. Cartagena to Ibiza. Casablanca to Lanzarote. Canary Islands to Caribbean. Antibes to Malta. Loch Fyne to Dublin.

Power Boat delivery and passages include:
