Why Choose Us To Deliver Your Boat?

Gypsy Yacht Deliveries employs only the most experienced, qualified and competent skippers available, and with whom we have entrusted for many years to deliver to the high standard of seamanship, boat care, maintenance and professionalism we are known for.


We Deliver Anywhere, Any Time


Our Captains enjoy constant support
throughout the journey

When at sea, the skipper of your boat will have the full and constant support of a very experienced office based yacht delivery captain who maintains a daily vigil on the weather and communicates with the boats via satellite phone. Their position and status is given to us at least 3 times a week and relayed to the boat owner for his peace of mind. The Office Admiral assist where possible with preparations, and departure formalities and provides his skippers and crew with all the information they need: visa requirements, technical support, services and facilities offered at ports en route, and assists with the coordination of repairs if necessary.


Extreme care is taken to protect and maintain boats under our command

We are fastidious in the maintenance and upkeep of our vessels. Extreme care is taken to protect newly built vessels, by covering all working surfaces and paying close attention to possible chaffing, rust, corrosion and general wear. Upon arrival at their destinations the vessels are meticulously cleaned and polished and handed over in the best possible condition. As for used boats, we tend to tackle jobs on board as we go, and therefore they usually arrive in better condition than we found them in.

How does it work?

You send an enquiry and I send a quote. If you are happy with it we follow up with a call and request more information about the boat, and answer any questions you may have. An agreement will then be sent to you. On acceptance of the terms you are to make a 50% down payment. Throughout the voyage the Skipper will provide updates to our shore team who in turn will keep the crew updated on weather and provide technical assistance if need be. Upon arrival the crew will thoroughly clean the vessel, ensure she is safe and secure, and the owner may then inspect the vessel. All receipts for expenses that are for the account of the owner will be presented to the owner and the balance of delivery fee will be calculated. We shake hands and bid farewell to you!

As part of our service, and at no extra charge, we are prepared to undertake some minor work before departure and will also give the boat a thorough inspection. If, during the inspection, any issues are found that are outside of the scope of what we deem ‘minor’ work, and would render the voyage unsafe, then you will be required to remedy these issues either by employing tradesmen, or the skipper who may undertake reparations himself at an agreed fee.
