    Down East Yacht Delivery Services consist of:

  • Delivery of your yacht anywhere

  • Private Seamanship Instruction for going to sea (planning, weather, boat handling, safety, docking, etc.)

  • Private Cruising Preparation Instruction in all aspects (boat selection, financing, what to expect, spouse training)

  • Combination of Delivery, Coaching and Training with You ABOARD YOUR YACHT

    We have helped Clients in several categories:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
