Ship deliveries (read also our Testimonials)
We are your best choice if you consider a ship delivery. We accomplished quite a few of them. All without damage. Except for the one that was attacted by killer whales …
Of course, there are other options for your delivery. But we comply with IMO STCW requirements, far beyond the RYA yachtmaster certification (that we have too). We take care of every aspect of the delivery, so you don’t have to worry about your insurance, international transiting and maritime laws, collregs, repairs, fuel and so on. We speak the language at sea, we’re not just yachties. All our certificates, diploma’s, testimonials and references are genuine and easy to verify. We are fluent in Dutch, English and German and can communicate in French and Spanish.
We work with plain and clear contracts. We survey your boat before departure. We charge a fixed rate per nautical mile for the (in advance agreed) mileage. We don’t charge waiting days, storm-days or repair delays. We keep you informed during the trip. On arrival you receive our financial and technical report. All crystal clear.
We’re also available for temporary crewing and/or managing your vessel. Rob meets the MCA LY3 large yacht code and the USCG Master’s License.
Consulting & teaching
Rob has been teaching and examining nautical subjects over the years, like navigation, collregs, and maritime communication. He can teach you how to (better) maneuver your boat, how to get more out of your boat, save on energy, how to dive, how to maintain your engine and a lot more. Feel free to ask if you have any question or requirement.
