PREPARING YOUR VESSEL FOR DELIVERY

CREWED DELIVERY

OceanTrax will do the majority of preparation on the vessel, we have a comprehensive checklist we work through before leaving port. This checklist can be downloaded here .

However no one knows your boat better than you so there are things as an owner of the vessel you can do to help speed the process up.

Ensure all the correct paperwork is on board. Often crews are asked for registration documents, proof of VAT status and insurance.
List any known defects or peculiarities of the vessel. For example it is not uncommon for older vessels to have had work carried out and switches installed in strange places!
Dinghies and outboards stowed.
In-date life-raft and flare pack.
For motor yachts in particular, details of approximate fuel consumption and range.
If possible ensure the vessel is fully fuelled.
A recent surveyor’s report to view, if available.
List any equipment you do not wish us to use e.g. racing sails.
Inventory of on board equipment if possible

These details can save ours crews valuable time on arrival at a new vessel.

“OceanTrax have now undertaken several yacht deliveries for us in the UK and throughout Europe and on each occasion provided a very professional service. It is invaluable for us to work with a company that we can trust, not only just to deliver the boat, but to hand it over to the customer in shipshape condition. We will certainly continue to use their services…”
