Combination of Delivery, Coaching and Training with You ABOARD YOUR YACHT
We have helped Clients in several categories:
Yacht owners wanting rapid, safe, reliable delivery of
their vessel from A to B:
Electing to have us delivery your vessel to your desired location with an experienced
captain and crew aboard is what we do and do well.
New boat owners wanting to cruise but not having experience:
Planning a lifestyle change? Want to buy a boat and cruise but not having
the necessary experience? We will work with you to coach and educate you on all
aspects of boat selection, financing, what to expect, spouse training, etc.
Experienced Boat owners wishing to gain additional
knowledge: We will tailor an
educational program to your needs - it may include voyage planning, weather, boat
handling, safety, docking, diesel maintenance, computer aids, communications, seamanship
or any other aspect of going to sea and returning safely.
Spouses wishing to gain knowledge and know what to do
if the captain is suddenly incapacitated: This can be a frightening
situation which can be greatly alleviated by appropriate coaching and training.
Much can be done to learn how to handle emergencies by practicing their occurrence
prior to them actually happening. This can help eliminate the "denial" phase
which can delay critical decisions and safety steps.
Couples wishing to learn more about cruising and what
to expect: We have helped many couples acquire sufficient knowledge and
reduce their fears of going to sea and safely handling the boat under normal
and emergency conditions. We have helped couples who otherwise would have decided
to go their separate ways because of lack of patience, understanding and
appropriate training and knowledge.
For a recent example of an educational program done while
at sea, please read our article entitled
"Superior Odyssey" (click here).
