Owner assisted deliveries and instruction

Feel free to join us onboard your delivery at no extra cost! Whether you’re new to yachting and need some support on the water or just can’t resist a biscay crossing, we’d be delight to have you onboard no matter your experience level. Our skippers are all qualified Instructors, some even Examiners, and would be thrilled share their knowledge with you. 

Many of our clients have become good friends and frequent crewmates of ours after joining us as crew, students or dolphin watchers on their yacht’s delivery.  

How the YDUK yacht delivery service works:

Initial Enquiry

Once you have contacted us we will discuss your exact requirements to come up with the perfect solution for your delivery service. 


We will send you an all inclusive quotation, giving you the options to deliver your vessel in a way which meets your requirements and budget as well as our availability.


We will prepare the perfect delivery plan for you and confirm your departure date with a signed contract. Departure date will of course be weather dependant for the sake your vessel and our team! We can also help prepare and equip your yacht for the sea.


You will be sent a pre-delivery briefing with everything you need to know about the delivery including planned passage details, crew experience and weather considerations. 


Once aboard we will carry out thorough checks of the vessel, rigging and equipment to insure the safety of your boat and our team. Then we will monitor the vessel and conditions on route to make sure everything goes smoothly and the crew receive the support they require. Your skipper will give you regular progress reports throughout.


The job is not over as soon as we arrive. Before we head home we will always leave your vessel cleaner than we found it, fuelled up if required and all systems “put to bed”. If you are not available for a handover then we will also provide pictures on completion and a video of the delivery if desired.
