"Fabrice is a fantastic instructor, the courses I took with him were the highlight of all the ones I took at the RPNYC academy [Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club Sailing Academy, Wellington, New Zealand] - very knowledgeable and fun. His love of sailing is readily apparent, and quite infectious"
Do you want your boat ready, safe and sound in your new cruising area for your holiday? Maybe in the Mediterranean, Croatia, Greece, Caribbean or beyond?
Do you want her back home ASAP?
Do you want to be assisted by a professional skipper for this crossing?
If the answer is Yes to one or more of these question, then contact me for a chat and a quick quote.
No deliveries are too near or too far. On a longer delivery, I may need one or more crew members which I select from a short-list of qualified Coastal Skipper or Yachtmasters. This helps ensure that your boat is in experienced, reliable hands.
My reputation is built upon reliability and professionalism. My best advertising is the word of mouth by happy customers, boat owners, students and employers.
Every delivery is different but here is a guideline of the main points of the process.
Before joining your yacht, we will be in contact. Ideally we can meet, get to know each other and ensure that we agree on the passage plan and other requirement you may have. We can also arrange everything by phone or Skype.
On joining your yacht, we will conduct a thorough safety check and go over the yachts systems in general as a preparation for the voyage.
While underway, we stay in contact as much as possible. You’ll be informed of the yachts position on a regular basis. Your yacht is sailed or motored conservatively in order to minimize the wear and tear. I aim for maintaining a minimum speed of 5knts to minimize the cost.
On completion, your boat will be thoroughly cleaned inside and outside, the deck washed down. She will be given back to you as I received her.
I will always remember that I have been a guest on your yacht for the duration of the delivery and will endeavor that, by the quality of my work and by my standards, you will want to have me again.
If you need any further information or if you want a quick quote for free, or be it only for a casual chat, do not hesitated to contact me.
