Delivering yachts, which World Yachting has been doing successfully for the past 30 years, is the core of our business. We strive to deliver your yacht to arrive in the same condition in which it left in (or better) in a manner that allows you to continue your lifestyle without any worry.
World Yachting specialise in multihull and long ocean pasages and is committed to exceed your expectations through all stages of the delivery process from the initial correspondence to the final hand-over. Your vessel is as precious to us as it is precious to you.
You will be given the opportunity to be in contact at all times with the Captain who will deliver your yacht, thus forming a one to one personal relationship. You will also be kept up-to-date with the progress of the delivery and at the completion of the delivery; you will be given a complete and detailed assessment of the vessel and all its systems, plus a copy of the logbook and photographs.
The delivery process is as follows:
Upon contacting our office with your enquiry, World Yachting will return a detailed quote including the price, the routeing, the approximate time we feel the delivery will take and any other relevant information we think you may require.
You will then confirm with us, by telephone or e-mail, your requirements and that you accept the delivery price.
Once World Yachting has received your confirmation, we will send you:
- a contract for signing
- a invoice for the initial deposit to be paid 14 days prior to the delivery, and
- the contact details of the Captain making the delivery.
- After banking the deposit, World Yachting will go ahead and make all travel arrangements for the delivery crew and purchase any charts and pilots that may be required.
The delivery crew will arrive on the vessel and carry out a full pre-delivery check of all the systems before setting out.
The yacht will then be safely delivered to her destination, moored securely, and given a final clean.
You then pay the balance of the delivery either on arrival or 7 days after receipt of the final invoice
On receipt and clearance of your final payment, we despatch a tax-deductible receipt to you. All documents, keys, photographs, a copy of the log, and a comprehensive report are returned to you.
Owners are more than welcome to join us on the delivery (or even a part of it).
Owning a yacht for the first time can be quite a daunting experience and World Yachting will help you to gain your confidence, get to know your vessel and enhance your skills.
It also allows you to take a break from your everyday job and moreover enjoy a relaxing time delivering your yacht.
World Yachting will supply all charts, and navigation equipment including GPS and pilots, as well as an EPIRB and VHF radio. On all long ocean deliveries, we bring along a sextant and you will have the opportunity to learn Celestial Navigation.
We have an extensive list of selected crew available and each person is selected specifically for the safe delivery of your vessel.
World Yachting can deliver any size and type of vessel, and specialize in long ocean passages. Our enviable standing in the industry rides with each and every delivery.
