pirate Skipper - Brisbane or Newcastle to Melbourne

Hi

We are having our Lagoon 400 Catamaran shipped back to Australia. Still not sure if discharge will be Brisbane or Newcastle. It's due in around February 2011 all going well.

How much $ am I looking at for a skipper to do this delivery?

Re: Skipper wanted - Brisbane or Newcastle o Melbourne

I suspect the OP wants to know from either Brisvegas or Newcastle to Melbourne.

In any event Silvana, local delivery skippers charge either by day or by nautical mile, round 2.50 to 3.00 per nm or 250 to 300 per day. Plus food and other outgoings, eg marina fees, fuel etc. And they will need to be moved to and from their home. EG if I was doing it from Brisbane to Melbourne there would be no fee to get to the boat but there would be a flight home.

The price may also vary a bit depending on the age and condition of the boat, if its nice and fresh etc there might be a slight discount. Also some very bad people might do it a little cheaper if you dont need a tax invoice (maybe 10% cheaper?). Most skippers will charge slightly more if the owners want to come along, but thats negotiable.

Good trip home to melb,
I have done it the last 3 years in my Lagoon 440.
Plenty of places to pull in until you round Gabo island where it helps to time the weather window.
Good luck finding a suitable delivery captain

Re: Skipper - Brisbane or Newcastle to Melbourne

I'm interested in the trip. I delivered a 60ft catamaran from BVI's to Plymouth this summer. Looking forward to getting back out again. I have CV and references available upon request. My email address is specialk.robbins777@gmail.com

Sincerely,
Keith Robbins
