I have safely circumnavigated the globe in a sail boat
You don't get too many delivery captains who have the sea miles and experiences gained from a circumnavigation. By crossing 3 oceans I've sailed in all types of conditions and navigated all sorts of waters. From wide open oceans, to reef-lined atolls to calm, shallow waterways, I have navigated them all.
I am a USCG Certified Captain, OUPV and 50T Masters upgrade with sail endorsement. In addition, I hold a CASA Yacht Skippers Certificate from Ocean Sailing Academy, Durban, South Africa. I served in the South African Navy aboard a Strikecraft in some of the most challenging seas you will ever experience. I competed in the 1996 Olympic Games representing South Africa in sailing. Most importantly, I have extensive experience cruising on many sailboats, both mono-hulls and catamarans, and have over 50,000 sea miles under my keel. I am an extremely safe, meticulous, careful, self-sufficient and capable boater who will treat your vessel as if it is my own.
I can deliver power or sail boats, with or without the boat's owner, almost anywhere in the world, from short distances to long distances. Contact me to discuss your boat delivery needs today.
COST: $675/day/7hour day
Flat fee rate of $675/day for Captain. Captain's rate should you require owner on-board or tutoring during a delivery is $750/day. For deliveries longer than a day that include overnight travel, 1 crew member is always required over and above a Captain and an additional fee would then apply. If sailing overnight passages (i.e. sailing 24/7) my rate is $850/day.
The additional amounts you will pay are all transport costs, including crew flights to and from the vessel, starting & returning from my home base, per diem per day if overnight travel required, the costs of any slip/mooring charges, fuel, port fees if applicable that may include customs and immigration.
Once we have discussed your needs, we can plan your itinerary and work up a schedule and an approximate price.
