Our Fees.

Various delivery companies charge in a huge array of alternatives, some by the mile, the day, including provisions, excluding fuel. It can be a bewildering assortment of further expenses and add ons that had not been budgeted for by the owner. No one likes an unexpected bill when a price had been agreed. At YDS we ensure that every contract is straightforward and transparent with clear pricing.

A quote will be given and we stand by our word.

Days in port (lay days) are charged at 50%, therefore there is no reason to "hang out", plus we could have other clients waiting.

First Mate and additional crew, if needed, will be determined by the size of the boat and length of the passage. 

All crew flights to and from the vessel are the responsibility of the owner, as are the costs of fuel, port fees (customs, immigration, slip/mooring fees) and other necessary fees which must be paid in advance.

A written quote will be supplied before any agreement takes place. In the advent of any unexpected incidents the owners will be informed and will be responsible for any decision that is made.

It is expected that all equipment needed for a voyage is on board. This includes, life jackets, life raft, safety harness's, charts and navigation equipment. In the event that crew feel that the necessary equipment is not provided the owner will be consulted and a list of options and prices will be provided.

Prior to the quotation being accepted we will request information regarding the vessel in the form of a questionnaire, this will ask if there is a recent survey, age and condition of rigging and sails, last re-fit, photographs, when the vessel was last used, and engine details.

We will then plan an itinerary, and sign contracts prior to the crew arriving. 

If we can be of further assistance please contact us.
