How Rates Are Calculated
The cost to deliver a motor yacht depends on many factors including distance, anticipated speed of the vessel, condition of the vessel, condition of her systems, number of crew, route, and time of year – all deliveries have different challenges.
Beacon Luxury Yacht Delivery will take these and other factors into consideration to estimate the number of days the delivery is expected to require and provide an estimated delivery service fee inclusive of crew wages and all anticipated expenses such as food, fuel, oils, supplies, and transportation of the Captain and/or crew. All expenses applicable to the vessel delivery will be paid by the owner.
*Please note that Beacon Luxury Yacht Delivery does not deliver boats over land via truck.

How It Works
- It is recommended that all boat owners have their vessel inspected by a mechanic prior to the planned departure date. Most issues identified usually involve dirty fuel and filters. When headed offshore and the seas build, we find that it stirs up any dirt in the fuel tanks, overcoming the fuel filters and causing issues that require frequent filter change-out. It’s also a good idea to have spare impellers, hoses, belts and lights onboard in case of failure underway. A good inspection prior to departure will save time and money.
- As boat insurance is the owner’s responsibility, they are to contact their insurance company and provide a copy of their insurance policy showing that it is current and that the Captain is insured to deliver their boat.
- Documentation and/or state registration must be onboard throughout the entire voyage. A letter appointing our Captain as the boat owner’s agent should also be affixed to the documentation.
- Upon arrival at the vessel, the Captain will conduct a thorough inspection of the vessel, her gear, equipment, and compliance with U.S. Coast Guard and other applicable regulations to ensure it is able to safely complete the delivery. We will load up the provisions and get underway as soon as safely practical.
- If, upon initial inspection and preparation or en route, any mechanical failure, loss, or damage occurs or has occurred to the vessel or its equipment hindering its ability to make a safe journey and the owner declines to (or is unable to) correct, the voyage may be terminated by the Captain, and he is to be paid his daily wages plus expenses incurred (including return airfare) from point of departure to the point of termination. All remaining monies (if any) advanced to the Captain and crew will be returned.
- You will receive a pre-departure message and link via text message or e-mail. If all is well, GARMIN INREACH SATELLITE TRACKER updates will start to become available at the link provided. Updates to the vessel’s location will be transmitted every ten minutes while the vessel is underway. We also will have the ability to communicate at any time via text message through this communication device.
- Your motor yacht will be cleaned and washed down prior to crew departure, properly tied up, and locked up at the designated dock or mooring.
- You will be provided a Material Condition Report/Voyage Summary of the yacht, along with any discrepancies noted during the delivery. With the condition report, a detailed final invoice will also be provided listing any expenses incurred during the delivery such as fuel, meals, dockage, and repair costs. Receipts will be provided for all major expenses. Any expenses for which receipts are unavailable (e.g. minor cash expenses) will be documented in detail.
- Upon successful delivery and final joint vessel inspection, the captain will provide the owner a detailed comparison of estimated vs actual expenses, which will act as the basis by which the final cost settlement will be determined and monies refunded or exchanged.
- Enjoy your yacht in her new home or cruising area, knowing she has been well cared for and is ready to sail again.
