Graham Harris Yacht Delivery Captain
World Yachting is ideally based in Phuket, Thailand whose knowledge of the South East Asian region from the Indian Ocean in the west across to Australia in the east is second to none.

Graham Harris is RYA Ocean Yachtmaster qualified and a highly experienced blue water Yacht Captain with a lifetime at sea and more than 41 years of professional yacht delivery and charter experience worldwide. A formidable 161 yachts, catamarans, monohulls, and powerboats personally delivered.

The deliveries include 56 Atlantic Ocean crossings from England, France, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean, or South Africa westwards across ‘The Pond’ to the sunny Caribbean and the East Coast of the USA or the eastwards return to the UK or Europe. Whether made during the easy trade wind or the hurricane season, no route is the same; each crossing is unique.

World Yachting is a yacht delivery company only. No add-ons. No charters, no management service. We do just the-one thing; deliver your yacht successfully and to your satisfaction. We have been doing this far longer than anybody else.

Why World Yachting?

  • Locating to the beautiful island of Phuket in Thailand 23 years ago gives World Yachting the advantage of a local understanding of the region. Namely, its weather, CIQ formalities, harbours, marinas and anchorages, as well as knowledge of the safest and possibly the quickest yacht delivery routes depending on the time of year and the vessel being delivered. We cannot emphasise this enough regarding local knowledge as they all add to a safe and successful delivery.
  • World Yachting, in the process has gained a considerable amount of real experience by delivering a wide variety of vessels, large and small, over hundreds of thousands of miles while visiting hundreds of ports, harbours and marinas worldwide.
  • When owners or agents contract us to deliver their yachts, they entrust us with their vessels. From that point on, it is given the same attentive treatment as if the vessel were our own.
  • Your vessel will only be captained by myself (and my trusted and experienced crew); we do not pass on your delivery to lesser qualified and experienced Delivery Captains. This way, we have control of the quality and success of each delivery and the level of client satisfaction.
  • Owners are welcome to join us for the whole or part of the delivery, thus gaining an invaluable and a-rewarding experience.

You’ll experience the World Yachting difference.

Reliable and Complete Service

World Yachting provides a reliable, professional yacht delivery service that allows owners to enjoy a-maximum peace of mind in having their yacht delivered by a true and trusted professional with real experience.

Everything is taken care of; we either carry out or liaise with an agent on the exit and entry formalities, together with a thorough check that the vessel is sea-worthy and ready for the intended voyage. Once completed, the vessel is delivered to your required destination, and finally, another review is carried out before being handed over in a clean and ship-shaped condition.
