YACHT DELIVERY

OceanTrax offer a first class worldwide vessel relocation service for sailing and power boats. Whether it’s a small coastal trip or an ocean crossing, all deliveries are carried out with meticulous care and attention. Safety for the vessel and crew is always paramount. Used by individuals and businesses, we continue to operate at the highest standards and ensure we understand and fulfil our clients’ requirements and expectations.

A Typical Delivery

Delivery passages are undertaken with a minimum of three crew, four on transatlantic crossings and larger more complex vessels. The Skipper will always be RYA/MCA Yachtmaster or higher qualified and will have been assessed by OceanTrax and matched to a vessel suitable to their experience. The First Mate will be fully qualified and have the relevant experience to work as First Mate. Deckhands will be from Day Skipper level upwards and assessed on experience.

Before Delivery

Before departure, crew will thoroughly check the vessel, including the safety equipment and onboard systems before provisioning and preparing the vessel for the forthcoming passage. This process usually takes 24 hours. At this stage, if any problems are found the owner will be alerted and a solution found. Woodwork and upholstery below deck is protected in foam padding to avoid damage while at sea.

This protection is particularly important on new vessels. Rigs are thoroughly checked and split pins taped to avoid damage to sails. Mast spreaders are also often wrapped to avoid rubbing marks on sails.

EnRoute

Once underway, deliveries of boats/yachts usually run for 24 hours without stops unless weather does not permit. A watch system will be put in place – this is at the skipper’s discretion and will be suitable to the vessel, number of crew, length of passage and weather. Each delivery has a time allocated and an estimated rate of progress. For sail boats, this progress will be under sail whenever possible. However, if the wind is light the engine will be used to maintain the schedule.

During the delivery we will keep you informed of progress at every available opportunity. The safety of the vessel and crew is always paramount and it is our priority not to over-stress a vessel. Our skippers understand this and will always make judgements based on the crew, vessel and prevailing weather conditions. On arrival at the end destination, a detailed Condition Report will be available to the owner and the vessel will be thoroughly cleaned.
