Trans Atlantic Delivery

1978 Endeavour 37 located Fort Lauderdale.
New diesel engine, new fuel tank.
Recent survey.

Owner wants it delivered to Europe, preferably Norway, but other Northern or Central European ports may be acceptable if time is tight.

Looking for estimates for an all-included delivery.

Re: Trans Atlantic Delivery

My name is Mark Swidrowski,age 37, I am professional ocean skipper unlimited, PYA and RYA Comercially Endorsed. I am cruising with my life partner Caroline, age 26, as a sailing couple.
We are easy going and adventurous, but serious in terms of sailing on high seas and boat duties.
Here you can find our photos and profiles:
Yachtmaster&mate couple OFFSHORE DELIVERIES - Crewing Opportunities - World Cruising Club

We are currently in St George, Granada, after 6 month cruising on Caribbean, and as the season comes to an end, we are curious where we can sail next.

I have extensive offshore experience, deliveries, tall ship regatta skippering and long distance passage practice and polar regions sailing. Experienced in ocean and northern seas sailing ( over 25 000Nm, Spitsbergen,Greenland, Iceland,Norway and North Sea),tough weather conditions regions, preferring long distance passages.Atlantic crossing experience, also sailing in Cannary Islands, Madeira, Azores, Maroco, Caraibean, Mediterranean. We have extensive offshore experience, deliveries, tall ship regatta skippering, long distance passage practice and polar regions sailing.

We will be more than happy to send you our CV along with sailing resume's, please contact us directly to discuss the details.

At the end of 2012 I delivered 44ft sailing boat and prepared for ARC2012 from Villamoura to Gran Canaria, I came back to Portugal delivering conceptual trimaran 56ft from Lanzarote to Lagos, back in Las Palmas with Hanse 461. Our last commitment was on Caribbean, where we were sailing last 6months. Our current commitment ends with the end of July but our arrangement is flexible and can be changed when needed.

Please don't hesitate to contact us either by mail marcodepolonia@gmail.com or alternatively on my caribbean telephone number: +17587213367 to discuss further details.

Fair winds and enjoy your sailing!
Capt. Mark Swidrowski

Re: Trans Atlantic Delivery

Ok, will contact ya when I get home in a day or two, now in Rio.

The boat has been sitting for a few years, needs a tune-up and a sea-trial.
Hank-on Jib and in-mast roller furling for the main.

Minimal gear and stuff, may have to rent a raft, no dink.

The owner (not me) is looking at cost between sailing and shipping on a freighter.

Perhaps a bit late this year as the boat is not quite ready yet, needs a haul and some tweaking, but will leave that decision to an experienced off-shore skipper (Hurricane Season)

Re: Trans Atlantic Delivery

Still looking to get the boat over to Europe, but the owner is slow responding.
He had preferred putting it on a freighter but I suggested delivery.
Price is a factor, so is the cost of trans-Atlantic insurance.

The boat is being worked on, all items from the survey is now done, but still more to do as the boat is light on equipment, an autopilot or wind-vane would be a minimum, so would a raft and sat-phone, etc, but up to the delivery skipper, and some of that stuff can be rented.

Ideally the delivery skipper would already be in Florida and can stop by, inspect the boat, put together a list of equipment/stores needed, then give a price for delivery and expenses.

It seems the owner is not in a hurry and it is getting closer to the hurricane season, not sure how this will play out, possible freighter this year or delivery 2014..

Re: Trans Atlantic Delivery

Hi Gbelle.

Sure, join in in the delivery, I am sure an extra hand is always good news.
So far I have gotten 3 or 4 estimates and knowing the owner, I am sure he will not pick the most expensive one. The boat is not ready yet, having the surveyor come later this week to sign off on the repairs, then a diver next week to clean the bottom, then have to arrange insurance, then deal with the non-survey related items, run the fridge, check all the systems, etc, etc.
I am not so sure this delivery will happen in 2013 due to the weather window rapidly closing, 'cane season and all, but ultimately up to the delivery skipper and the owner.

To all who have sent me Private Messages offering to take on the delivery, thx, much appreciated, I got the numbers now and have contacted the owner. He is slow responding and does not read emails often, will call if I don't hear from him.

Also, please send resume with qualifications and experience via PM.

Re: Trans Atlantic Delivery

Hi I'm based in the Med at the moment but am looking at going to Norway later in the year to buy a Colin Archer.
I'm Rya yachtmaster and have 30000 miles plus. Done 3 trans ats 2 westerly passages and 1 easterly solo passage. Im', 49 years old ex British special forces and can cope with just about anything.
I run a delivery company already at vastly reduced rates as I think some people charge way over the odds.
I wouldn't consider the delivery until after hurricane season is over but am happy to do it for 7000 dollars plus flights to the boat.
P.M.me if the owner is interested.
P.S. Price includes me plus 1 crew.
