2- Pre-Delivery :

There are many factors to consider before your boat is ready to be delivered :

  • Full inspection of the sailing yacht using detailled checklists for engine, rigging, sails, electronics, safety equipment, deck gear, skin fittings, spares,...
  • Inspection report and recommendations,
  • Protection of vulnerable areas to avoid wear and tear on sails, 
  • Crew briefing, Passage Planning, Customs clearance,

Depending on the delivery, the crew spend between 24 hours and 5 days checking the yacht from bilge to masthead and preparing the passage.

3- Underway : 

  • Your boat will be sailed conservatively : a yacht delivery is not a race!
  • Daily routine maintenance and checks,
  • Only stops for refueling, provisioning or avoid severe weather conditions,
  • Regular position reports by sat phone (if you choose this option) allow you to track your boat during the passage,

4- At destination :

  • A detailled condition report on your yacht with pictures and recommendations wil be issued at the end of the yacht delivery,
  • Deep final clean.
