Do you want to spend your holidays with your sailboat in a specific place, but you don’t have time to move it?
Have you bought a sailboat in a distant place and are you looking for someone who can relocate it near you?
Are you a broker or a shipyard and your client needs a skipper for the transfer of the new boat?
I offer yacht delivery service for individuals, brokers and shipyards, as well as assistance in running your own boat, in an absolutely professional and safe way.
Is your vessel sailing a non-EU flag and is in a temporary admission regime?
I can take care of taking the boat out of the EU customs area and requesting the necessary documents to renew the 18 months of temporary admission.
I use the Iridium service to plot the route sailed during transfers. From the moment we leave the port to your destination, you can follow the progress.
This service allows me to be reachable by phone even when I am out of mobile network coverage.
I have traveled more than 20,000 nautical miles in remote and challenging places on boats from 37 to 66 feet.
I have the Swiss offshore sailing certificate without limits and the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore (with STCW95, SRC / LRC and ENG1).
Some examples of transfers or assistances I have made:
A vessel sailing a non-EU flag, usually moored on the Côte d’Azur, at that time was under a temporary admission regime. I took care of taking her to Gibraltar and handling the paperwork to obtain the necessary documents to start the 18 months of temporary admission into the EU customs area.
After the owner and his family spent their holidays in the Balearics, I took care of organizing a crew and bringing their boat back to the French Riviera.
I helped transfer this boat from Martinique to Gibraltar, via the Azores.
The owner contacted me to assist him on his world tour. We traveled approximately 8,000 miles from New Zealand up north of Australia to Darwin, then crossing the Indian Ocean to Mauritius.
