 Yacht and Boat Deliveries

 Transport By Sea


Yacht deliveries with George at GT Yachting offer you a transport by sea yacht delivery and owner assisted passage service.


Your Yacht will be transported by sea and will be undertaken by me. I am an Ocean Yachtmaster and Yachtmaster Instructor (sail).

During the past three years I have completed 15,000 miles delivering yachts. I  have one crew member for the short trips and for longer trips three or four crew.


Crew and onboard safety is my highest priority. I therefore spend some time during the first day checking the boats safety equipment, mechanical / electrical systems and condition. I will ensure that vulnerable areas are fully protected from damage during the passage.

A pre passage report and a passage plan are prepared and filed before departure. It is a customers responsibility to ensure their boat is fit for purpose prior to a delivery.


Once on passage we keep a regular log of our progress and remain in contact with my base and yourself if required, thus enabling our progress to be monitored.


On arrival at our destination we will remove any protection, valet the boat and provide a written report of the voyage.


Owner assisted, passages are tailored for you the owner; to play an active role in the running of the boat, participating in the watch keeping system, maintaining the log and well running of the vessel. Alternatively you mplay a passive role and not be involved in the watch keeping or running of the vessel procedures. I assist with any aspect of the passage including boat handling and dealing with authorities.
