Top Tips For Becoming a Yacht Delivery Skipper
Posted by Pete Green
Professional Yacht Delivery Skipper On Watch

To set sail over the horizon, to spread your wings and explore, to see the world and to meet many new like minded people… Perhaps being a yacht delivery skipper is the ultimate job for any sailing enthusiast that likes to travel and wants to get paid to see the world!
For anyone looking for a career in sailing there seems to be just a few main options. You can work in the superyacht industry, work as a sailing instructor or flotilla crew or of course work in the yacht delivery industry.

Yacht delivery presents a unique opportunity to work independently on a huge variety of vessels, both power and sail, going to and from locations all over the world.

At Halcyon Yachts we are very lucky to have such a dedicated team of professionals helping us to ensure a quality of service that is second to none. We have many freelance skippers approach us looking for work. In order to help any potential or up and coming yacht delivery skippers we have compiled a list of top tips:-

Make sure you are suitably qualified

Most yacht delivery companies insist upon their skippers being qualified to Yacht Master level. At Halcyon Yachts, our skippers are all Ocean Masters as a minimum. Gaining a teaching qualification is also very useful and will help to make you more employable.

Carry the right equipment

Yacht delivery skippers need to be able to be quite self sufficient. It is recommended that you carry your own handheld VHF and GPS. You will need your own lifejacket and harness line, wet weather gear of course and a sleeping bag. In addition to this it is useful to carry some basic tools including a knife, pliers, screw drivers, multi-meter, sail repair tape and cable ties. I personally also like to carry a small fishing set – nothing quite beats fresh mackerel for lunch!

Take out insurance

There are several types of insurance to consider. As a yacht delivery skipper you should certainly have your own professional indemnity cover and also we recommend having your personal belongings covered. Health insurance too is wise especially if sailing outside of the EU.

Buy a yacht tracking device

There is no better way to impress the owner of the yacht than to have a satellite tracker on-board. At Halcyon Yachts we have a number of trackers that we send out to our skippers before they embark on delivery. Tracking devices such as the Spot Tracker, DeLorme or Yellow Brick all work well and enable the owner to see exactly where in the world their yacht is. These devices are now very affordable and also offer additional safety as you can activate an emergency call in a similar way to an EPIRB.

Be professional with CV’s and invoicing


As a freelance yacht delivery skipper first impressions really do matter. Take the time to develop a well written and clearly laid out CV showing your experiences and qualifications. Invoicing is also important. It is worth formatting a generic template so that invoicing can be done efficiently and professionally at the end of each job.

Gather references and build your reputation

The yacht delivery world is a small one. Your reputation is crucial and many contracts are secured through personal recommendations. If you are submitting your CV to potential new employers then be sure to include useful and relevant references.

Have the right attitude

A yacht delivery skipper must have the right attitude. Not only must you be an excellent sailor and skipper you must also be customer orientated and focused on delivering a high quality of service. Remember that the yachts that you will be delivering are someone else’s pride and joy; yacht owners invest a great deal, not only financially but also emotionally into their vessels – they can become like a member of their family! Decisions should always be made with the owners best interests in mind. A successful yacht delivery skipper will be careful and conscientious, have a very high regard for safety and will be highly professional in their approach; not only when managing the vessel and crew but also with their interaction with the client.

Si aici top 10 feluri de mancare la bord de la o firma englezeasca. Pofta mare!

Everyone has their own favourite meal on a boat, and everyone has a meal that brings back memories, good or bad. For example, I cannot drink tomato cup-a-soup or coffee whilst on a yacht delivery, but I can sink gallons of tea and mushroom cup-a-soup!

Yacht delivery crew tend to be a little less fussy on a boat especially if they haven’t had to do the cooking.

Most of the favourite dishes are one pot or one dish wonders – always the best as can be made in most weather conditions.

Here is a list of the top 10 voted meals:

1. Chilli con Carne – stand out favourite

2. Spaghetti Bolognaise

3. Curry and Rice- any variety

4. Pasta Pesto

5. Sausage and Mash

6. Risotto

7. Pasty and beans

8. Macaroni Cheese/Pasta Bakes

9. Shepherd’s Pie

10. Bacon, Bacon, Bacon!

And for those that like to snack…

Top 10 snacks:

1. Chocolate – any variety
2. Fruit cake
3. Crisps
4. Biscuits
5. Gummy bears/Haribo
6. Fruit & Nut Mix
7. Ginger Biscuits
8. Cereal Bars
9. Fruit
10. Brioche – ones with the chocolate pieces

Același lucru mi sa întâmplat. Am ales un nou iaht. Apoi am văzut articolul unui tip.
Acum nu știu ce să fac.
Merită să cumperi un iaht? Sau mă va înșela și această companie?

Ai dat deja banul sau doar planuiai? Sau doar sondai piata si ai dat de astia?
