Delivery Rates

Vessels and itineraries vary considerably and therefore it is not practical to set one rate for yacht delivery.

We generally contract deliveries for an all inclusive delivery service fee based upon a number of factors including: route and season proposed – vessel speed, equipment, condition and the number of crew 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.

The wind fell off to 5 knots at midnight. We furled the jib, reefed the main and sprang the cast iron jeniker. During the break in period, the manual says to run her at full throttle minus 400 turns for the first ten hours. Consequently, we are fast! Like eight knots fast! I’m sure we have a healthy current pushing us along, but even still, you’ve got yourself a respectable motorsailor here. She motors well. She sails really well!

We’re headed to Monterey to put Will ashore. Drastic situations call for drastic action and when I say, “he got sick”, I mean to tell you...

I didn’t want to have poor old Frank giving him enemas, or anything, but if we don’t do something, he’ll probably die!
I’ve never known Will to get sick, but Jesus! He took the precautionary Dramamine as suggested, but I guess some days your wave train comes along and your number comes up.

Will’s breakfast came up too! And then some.

We’ll be in about 03:00, so we’ll just hang on the fuel dock and get some zzzzs until they open. I guess we’ll top up again as a safety precaution and get a fuel calculation. I wouldn't guess it’ll be terribly accurate though, what with the motor still breaking in.

As long as we’re stopping, we’ll probably spend a minute looking things over. I’m curious about the steering quadrant, the 12v charging and several items on the engine. Break-ins/shake-downs have a way with the equipment and it’s not uncommon to need to tighten things up a little.

We had a collision with an unidentified floating object (UFO) at about 02:00. A very loud bang! On inspection at Monterey we found a 12-18” mark at the beam just above the waterline. Probably a big piece of drift wood. It looks like it will buff out easily enough, though. Fiberglass is tough!

So, Will is on his way back to his Master of Fine Arts program in Fresno. Pescado Azul is full of fuel and we are getting back under weigh. 200 miles and one more dark night to go. Current ETA: Saturday afternoon/evening.

Dispatch to our client:

Hi E-

We are well under weigh, down bound with a following sea. It’s what I’d describe as “sporty” out here with 25 knots average wind speed and a 4-6 with occasional 8’ wind waves.

We have a deep reef in the main to the upper spreaders and about 2/3 of the jib rolled out making sevens and eights. I’m pleased to report that the boat is very well balanced and the autopilot is working beautifully.

We are nearly abeem of Half Moon Bay already and we’ve had a close sighting of a humpback.

Will is a little under the weather and has had to make a small offering to Neptune, but Frank and I are tip top.

I’ll report again if and when we have any developments.

We’re at the docks of Farralone Yacht Sales in Alameda prepping an brand new Catalina 425 for delivery to Ventura. It’s a short run, but the forecast promises some spirited sailing. Stay tuned...

Zippo’s uncle chartered a party boat to come out and take our picture as we went under the Golden Gate at sunrise on Lady Mary last month. He’s a crazy cuss and I hope to meet him one day.

Here is May’s Delivery: A Crealock designed Pacific Seacraft 37 from Seattle, WA to Monterey, CA. Smaller than the boats we usually contract, but of such high quality in design and construction and so well outfitted, we were delighted to receive the commission. Who’s up for a springtime sleigh ride down the west coast?
