Mile building.

Many of the RYA courses require you to have completed various amounts of logged miles, some with you acting as Skipper or night hours. It may also be that you want to sail and gain experience but do not yet own a boat of your own.

Through our sister company Malta Yacht Charters, we offer a range of tidal and non-tidal, mile building sailing programmes. Whether you wish to gain more experience or achieve the required qualifing miles for the more advanced qualifications, you will discover these programmes are not only fun, but rewarding.

Under the watchful eye of our experienced skippers you can assist in planning passages or just act as crew covering journeys to Sicily and beyond. more details –>

Corporate and Team building days.

Together with your company, we can tailor make activities for your staff. Sailing is the ideal medium for working as a team under the care of our experienced skippers. Adding to the team work ethic, we can also add tasks that bring out leadership qualities and decision making skills.

Should you have enough staff to require more than one boat we can add to the mix some competitive action.

Yacht delivery

Whatever yacht you might have, we will deliver it to any place you wish!

We deliver yachts worldwide (by oceans, seas, rivers, channels). We ensure delivery by highly qualified captains and crew. We can perform high quality delivery for any size and type of yachts (mono-hull, multi-hull, motor-yachts). Our captains are very experienced, which is confirmed by the following certificates – Yachtmaster Instructors Yachtmaster Sail Cruising   , professional VHF operator certificates, and CEVNI. We can take care of professional, safe and proper transporting of your yacht.

Yacht delivery process

In order to make the yacht delivery as safe as possible, we try to work only during daylight time transporting and choose the safest weather conditions for sailing. For such deliveries a captain and at least one crew member are required. If distances are so great that it would be necessary to continue transporting during the nighttime, several crew members will be required. On average a sailing yacht can cover around 100-200 miles per day, but it depends very much on the weather conditions and the yacht itself. Each situation is a little different, therefore we always approve every detail with the Client. If phone communication is available, we inform the Client about the process of delivery and agree on further actions.

Additional delivery costs

Costs for arrival of the captain and the crew to and from the yacht.
Food for the captain and the crew for the duration of the trip.
Towing services, if such are required.
Port related expenses.
Repair expenses, if such are required.
Fuel
Insurance

We will seek ways to decrease these costs, with full responsibility for representing Client’s interests.

Preparatory works

Before delivery we have to receive technical information about the yacht and develop the preferred delivery plan which will clearly show the delivery route with alternatives. According to this plan we can forecast the approximate delivery duration and costs. We will also clarify things related to customs, visas, fuel filling, as well as other issues and formalities related to the route. We will provide the required maps, almanacs and other publications necessary for the delivery. During the delivery we will carefully follow the weather forecasts and updates related to the sailing area.

It is important that your yacht has valid registration documents and the VAT status would be applicable to the countries within which sailing is planned. The yacht will also require appropriate insurance which would cover the liability for boat accidents and our liability as a captain within the route-related territories. The owner of the yacht is always welcome to participate in the delivery process, but if he does not wish so, we will need an insurance surety deposit and financial means for covering of expenses.

Before the delivery we will need to inspect your yacht and get acquainted with its settings and technical condition. It is important for us to be thoroughly familiarised with your yacht. During the trip we will treat the yacht equipment with due care and keep the yacht clean and in order. If necessary, we will cover the interior fittings with plastic film in order to keep it intact. We will follow all conditions that concern berths, food preparation, lavatories.

On the way

Each route is unique because there are different yachts, number of crew members, duration of the route, weather conditions and many other factors. In all cases we have an individual shift schedule; we keep an eye on the yacht’s systems and equipment. We always try to save fuel and keep constant order on the yacht. We always follow all sailing regulations, as well as choose the safest way for transporting. During bad weather conditions we sometimes alter the route or seek shelter. Our highest priority is to make a safe and careful delivery.

Arrival

Whenever possible we will timely inform of the arrival date. Before handing over we will carefully clean, wash and put the yacht in order. We will also fill the tanks and charge the batteries. We will also arrange for our own tickets back home. Our priority is the delivery of the yacht to the right place at the right time!
