When it comes to having your yacht delivered, there are many factors involved. It’s not just where you are headed, how much fuel you hold, planning/plotting the trip, submitting a float plan, etc.   How up to date is your GPS plotter, engine service, impellers? Is the owner, friends, or family going to be onboard? What kind of time frame do you have in mind, or when do you need the boat to its location? Is it the best and safest time for your particular boat to make this sort of passage?

The amount of work that goes into the preparations and planning for a passage can be vast! So, before we get into talking cost, let’s talk logistics. Call now to discuss your next move!! Call 619-764-6230 or email to:
