Deliveries – Crew

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN ST. BARTS YACHTS DELIVERIES

For over 27 years SBYD has maintained a firm standard of excellence to provide the best service in yacht deliveries.  To facilitate these high standards we have assembled a team of qualified and accomplished Skippers who have extensive experience including Great Lakes, Transatlantic, Caribbean, South American and South Pacific passages.  Our Skippers have delivered over 1400 sail and power boats over the last 25 years, covering 1.5 million offshore miles.

Our Skippers have access to the newest technology in marine deliveries including offshore weather forecasting and satellite positioning, tracking and communications.  We track and communicate daily with our Skippers providing real-time updates to put you at ease.

Our Skippers are backed by 27 years of experience, connections and knowledge.  Any issues that arise are quickly handled by the dedicated support team at St. Barts Yacht Deliveries.

Upon handover, you will receive a detailed Skippers report noting any defects before or during the delivery.  St. Barts Yacht Deliveries will make sure any problems that arise are dealt with right away.

Please call Maggie Garrett at the number below to get a quote for your delivery.

WANT TO BE PART OF THE CREW?

SBYD was formed to provide sailing opportunities for individuals to sail with us on our deliveries. We use volunteer crew of varying experience and backgrounds who are either trying to accumulate Sea Time, hone their sailing skills or be part of an adventure.

Crewing on deliveries is a combination of hard work and hard play. Crew are expected to take watches (sailing 24 hours a day) and do their fair share of the duties involved in running a yacht. Crew will have the opportunity to learn celestial navigation and the finer points of seamanship as well as gaining valuable experience and mileage towards any goal set by an institution to become qualified (US Coast Guard license, etc.)

DURATION OF DELIVERIES

Many of our deliveries are to and from the Caribbean, although we handle many other destinations and local trips as well. Caribbean passages normally take 10-14 days. Aside from sailing time, you should also expect one to two days on either end of delivery for preparing the yacht for voyage, clean up and handover of the vessel for the client.

PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

Crew is required to bring warm and waterproof clothing (foul weather gear), sleeping bag or bed roll, a working watch, flashlight and water-activated mob light (not a strobe light). Although the on-board provisioning and your return travel are taken care of, please do not arrive on the boat without extra money in case of delays or emergencies.

If you are interested in making a delivery with us, it is very important that you read all of the information provided, complete and sign the necessary crew forms. Keep the informational pages for your future reference. Although this may seem a tedious task, please remember that it is essential to give us the exact information that we ask for. Your application is submitted for insurance approval prior to joining on as crew. The more information you provide us the better your chances of being selected to crew.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Chuck & Amanda

Ron tells us that it was the two of you who made all the boat ownership papers happen so quickly.  They arrived yesterday afternoon.  It sure makes things easier for us to have them arrive so promptly.  We thank you for all the extra effort and for sending them Priority Mail Express 1-Day.  You guys at St. Barts sure run a first class operation.

The boat arrived Friday and we went over to see it immediately.  She is lookin’ really good!  We are already in contact with Eddie and have exchanged a couple of phone calls and texts with him. It is great to be working with him again.  We had to give him the bad news that they did not install the 2nd cabintop winch in the factory, again.  This is a bummer for him as it was very difficult last time to get the tool from Beneteau that he must use to get the job done.  We feel bad for him but are not worried at all.  Eddie lets nothing stop him.

Next time we get over to All Seasons we will take a photo and email it to you,

Thank you Amanda, Chuck and Ron for all you do for us.

Sincerely,

— Marjorie and Juergen
