Yacht Delivery Skipper

Elmar Teeuwen

Would you like to participate in a regatta abroad or would you like to discover a different sailing area during your holiday, but you don’t have the time to sail your yacht there? Then I can arrange that for you. I have a network of sailors from which I can quickly put together a yacht delivery team. I am a CWO certified sailing instructor and also RYA Yachtmaster® Offshore with two decades of experience in the North Sea and Mediterranean. I have the “Skipper Third Party Liability Insurance” from Pantaenius for commercial skippers on ships up to 17 meters.

Yacht DELIVERY SKIPPER AND CREW

It is only possible to sail non-stop for several days if, in addition to the skipper / instructor, 2 experienced people are sailing along. With Yacht Deliveries where the owner himself does not want or cannot join, Elmar Teeuwen will try to arrange board members who are willing to sail on a voluntary basis or who are willing to pay to gain experience at sea.

COMBINATION YACHT DELIVERY WITH LESSON ON YOUR OWN SHIP

It is also possible that the owner himself joins onboard because the delivery skipper is also a sailing instructor. There are no additional charges for this. For sailing lessons on your own ship within the CWO Yacht sailing training system, the ship must be sufficiently seaworthy and equipped for the sailing area according to the inventory list of the CWO, which is available on request. For example, for trips further than 12 miles from the coast, a life raft and EPIRB are required on board.

REQUIREMENTS yacht

The owner must ensure that the yacht is sufficiently seaworthy for the sailing area. This includes in particular a check of clean and full (diesel) tanks, the (fuel) filters, rigging, inventory, operation of the navigation lighting, safety and communication equipment, presence of all ship documents, etc.

COSTS YACHT DELIVERY

For yacht delivery, I charge a price per day and furthermore all expenses will be for the client and consist of, among other things, the travel time from Zeist or Monza (depending on where Elmar Teeuwen has to come from / has to travel to), if applicable the fee for extra professional crew, fuel, oil, customs, bridge, lock or harbor dues, travel costs of the skipper and any extra crew and if applicable, hotel stays and other expenses.

As an offshore sailing instructor I have over two decades of experience in teaching from beginner to instructor level on the North Sea and Mediterranean on sailing yachts, catamarans and motor yachts. I have also successfully trained several regatta sailing teams.
