Tell me about Find a Crew™ and Yacht Deliveries / Delivery Crew

 

A yacht delivery offers boat owners, builders and brokers an alternative to shipping when needing to relocate the vessel over both short and long distances. Many Captains and crew specialise in this type of work, and are qualified and experienced to deliver various boat types and sizes. There are many advantages to having a yacht delivered by a crew instead of shipped. The boat owner has flexibility to decide the schedule of when and how far the vessel is moved, they can join the boat at any agreed time, and it can be more cost effective as well. A good crew will take care of the yacht and sail it conservatively so as to minimise the wear and tear on the vessel during the delivery.
 
Find a Crew is used by many qualified and experienced captains to find extra crew for deliveries (they usually register a boat profile to contact crew members), and also for crew to find a position on a delivery. Boat owners and representatives use Find a Crew to look for the crew they need to deliver the boat. The advanced matching facility on Find a Crew allows them to set specific criteria so they find the right people for the job. Most delivery jobs offer at least one paid position (Captain), and depending on the size and type of vessel, and the duration of the journey, additional paid crew members may also be on board (chef, cook, deckhand, watchkeeper, engineer etc). Yacht deliveries also provide recreational opportunities for crew members (competent crew, experienced passenger, delivery crew etc) looking for extra sea miles or just an adventure.
