Recommended Delivery Team? Carib to Florida?

Need to get our 46 foot sloop delivered from Antigua to Ft Lauderdale - departing 2nd week May with ETA 1st week June.

I sadly don't have the time to do this myself. Can any one provide a personal recommendation to either a person / team / firm that they'd suggest I speak with?

Don't take life too seriously. No ones going to make it out alive......Go see our blog at

Sounds better than my delivery from Oregon to SF Bay. I'm going to do it around the same time. Want to trade? Sorry don't have any contacts in the area.
Fair Winds,

Delivery Captain Referral


I guess no one has stepped up to offer a suggestion, so i will:
Recommended with the utmost bias (he's my first mate!), is Capt. James Hedrick - (954) 770-0863. "Jann" as he's known to all, is owner of Argonauts Delivery Co and is a local Captain here in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

You should contact him now and he can give you an estimate on costs (they're always reasonable) and you can trust that your yacht will be in excellent hands!
