It is our highest priority to offer a safe delivery, we will care for your yacht not just move it. Great attention is paid to yacht preparation to ensure that the delivery is carried out safely and efficiently. There will be full checks on all major equipment prior to delivery. Hunter Yacht Deliveries Ltd provide careful weather routing combined with our experience to help ensure safe efficient passages with minimal wear to the vessel.
At sea we carry out daily checks on machinery and deck gear. Our extensive technical knowledge helps ensure that deliveries are not delayed due to equipment issues. During the delivery the vessel will be kept clean and will be thoroughly cleaned on completion of the passage. It is our aim to return the yacht to you in top condition. A full report with recommendations will be sent to the yacht owner. If required Hunter Yacht Deliveries Ltd can offer ongoing technical support.
On our quotation being accepted we will contact the owner or agent to get detailed information on the vessel and its equipment. Delivery dates will be agreed. Based on this information we will then go into detailed planning for the delivery.
A minimum crew of three including the skipper will normally be used, For trans-Ocean passages and larger vessels more crew members will be supplied as required. They will always carry out a full check on the vessel prior to commencing the passage. This includes safety equipment, machinery, a rig check, skin fittings, instrumentation and spares onboard. The yacht will be prepared for the passage including protection of vulnerable items and woodwork as appropriate.
When all checks are complete and the yacht is fully prepared for sea the yacht will depart on passage. Weather routing information will be used to ensure a safe, efficient passage with minimum wear to the yacht. The owner will be given regular updates on progress made.
On completion of the passage the yacht will be valeted. It will either be shut down and left in a safe berth or handed over to the owner. The owner will be given a full condition report with the skippers recommendations.
