Yacht Delivery and Captain Services
East Coast to the Caribbean and Back
East Coast Yacht Delivery Captains and Crew
Captain Dustin Ryan and his team provide the best in yacht delivery service. Our professional captains and crew are experienced in transporting both power and sailing yachts up to 85ft from the East Coast to the Caribbean and back. We are comprehensive, prompt and safe.

First concern is for the safety of the yacht and those aboard her. We can provide complete yacht inspection and delivery service or assist and train owners in the safe operation of their new yacht.
Rates are competitive, fair and in-line with our competition.
Please call to discuss your yacht delivery needs whether urgent or routine. You may also drop us an email request to [email protected] including all the boat details and delivery time frames and locations needed.
Yacht Delivery Rates
Vessels and itineraries vary considerably, and therefore it is not practical to set one rate for all yacht deliveries.
We generally contract deliveries for an all-inclusive delivery service fee based upon a number of factors, including the route and season proposed, vessel speed, equipment, condition, and the number of crew members required. The delivery service fee covers crew wages, transportation, and provisions for the duration of the delivery. Fuel, moorage, outfitting, and repairs are billed at the completion of delivery at our direct cost.
We will deliver boats from 30 feet to 85 feet to offshore locations; anything smaller may be considered, but the all vessel must be in excellent condition.
Owners are expected to supply all US Coast Guard-required equipment. The captain will verify the USCG-required equipment list prior to departure. For offshore voyages, a working Epirb and life raft are nice to have.
Owners are also expected to carry adequate insurance on the vessel, including coverage for the captain and crew.
Boat deliveries can include operational training enroute for the owner and/or family members or passengers, if desired, at an additional cost.
If you would like a quote for the delivery of your vessel, please email all of the details of the vessel, including the recent survey, locations, and timelines. We will be pleased to assist you in every way possible. Email to [email protected]
