Boat: Lagoon 380

Delivery Captain/Crew cost from Les Sables d'Olonne to Med (Spain)

I will be picking up a Lagoon 380 in Les Sables d'Olonne in late October. I am considering getting the boat into the Med before winter settles in. Since I have no experience sailing that part of the world and the boat will be new to me, I wanted to see how much it might cost to have an experienced delivery Captain/crew help get the boat into the Med.

Any ideas what something like that should cost? Any recommendations?

Thanks for the help in advance...

Could be between 150 to 250 for the cap, no idea about the crew, you can try one thing, in the marina, at the long street with some bars and some marine chandlerys there is a popular bar with some kind of old ships decor , very cute ,you know old binacles, some fishing nets climbing from the roof , ask there for Manu, is a well know delivery skiper in the area, he probably cross Biscay 100 times in any kind of vessels and in any kind of weather , asuming you pick up the boat in sables d Olone, he charge hig , but hey !! Biscay .... i recomend it, is a profesional with all the licenses , is french, he know well Biscay and beyond south ... Try at night when the bar is full of sailors.....Good Luck in your croosing....

I think it is (upwards of EUR) 150/day for the skipper and then the skipper will tell you whatever his crew asks on top of that.

October is late, Sables is in the Vizcaya, chuck in a good budget for possible marina stays while waiting for safe wx window to proceed.
