Mechanically challenged vessels considered.
With our repair and engineering skills we
can arrive, fix what is wrong and deliver your yacht to any location
A prime example of this was when we were
called to pick up a vessel located in San Carlos, Mexico. The boat was
hauled and almost every system on vessel was inoperable. The fuel system
had been removed and the engine was being fed from a 5 gallon outboard
tank. The Radar had been removed years earlier along with every other
piece of electric gear on the boat. The prop was missing, the rigging
was cracked, the water system had been removed. The new auto pilot was
in a box and waiting to be installed. The bottom needed paint, the decks
needed some type of non-skid, and this is just what comes to mind. Scott
and Allison took 20 days to install all the parts and pieces and make
the vessel sea worthy again.
After twenty days of preparation we took
just three days to get the boat to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. From there
we were able to make good time and in just 11 total days we arrived
in San Francisco just past midnight on a clear moon filled night. The
final two days the boat logged back to back days of 178 and 182 miles.
Both records for that vessel. The owner and his wife drove to the Golden
Gate and watched us come enter the bay in their new home. They moved
onboard and have lived happily aboard ever since.
I point this delivery out as it was a special
case. The boat needed extensive work before we could leave, and then
it needed a competent crew to deliver the boat up the coast in it's
still uninsured condition. Team Yachtwork was able to handle all aspects
of this project.
We charge for all deliveries by the day.
For this reason we feel we must keep the boats moving to make this an
economical venture for the owner.
