Deliveries – Crew


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.


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.)


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.


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.

Andy Lee has earned my highest recommendation for a boat salesman. I was not an easy customer. I purchased the boat by doing “online shopping” over 1,000 miles away. He earned my trust and told me of the quality of boat. He setup a conference call to describe the boat’s positives and honest flaws from life on the water. He sent me numerous pictures and videos. My wife and I decided we didn’t need a trip to see the boat. (This decision is important because flights, a rental car, and a hotel all take away from the boat budget.)

He patiently answered all my contractual questions so I understood the process. Andy Lee was present to ensure the boat inspection was done properly and all equipment was accounted for properly.

Andy Lee sent me contacts for shipping the boat via water or land, and allowed me to figure the best for me. He was there to make sure the boat was properly loaded on the truck, and send a video of the boat on the way.

This online sale was made by trust and hard work. Andy Lee knows and loves boats. It shows on his sailing resume, but more important you can hear it in his voice when talks about boats. It was a pleasure working with him. Most important, it was his eagerness to ensure everything was done properly that made the sale work seamlessly.
