Yacht Delivery Bali 4.5 France to Tortola

New Bali 4.5 Catmaran Completes Atlantic Delivery

Congratulations to Yacht Delivery Captain Andy Mallion who has just completed the delivery of a new Bali 4.5. The boat was collected from Canet-en-Roussillon in the South of France with stops in Gibraltar, Canaries and Cape Verde before arriving in the BVI.

This was the first delivery completed for the leading charter company Vacance sur Voile who plan to use our services again for their next new yacht in 2016.

Every delivery we undertake is subject to appraisal by the client. The feedback we received was very positive.

Don’t Mention the World Cup

A former client brings us the latest news from New Zealand

Hi Nick

Just to let you know that we competed in one of New Zealands best known yacht races the 2015 Coastal Classic. A 120 mile race from Auckland to Russell. Over 150 boats entered, but only 69 made it to the finish line because of strong head winds and big seas. We entered the ‘no extras’ division (10 boats) where the rule is to use mainsail and Genoa only. We came third on line and third on handicap! The interesting thing is we used the original sails that the boat was delivered from the factory with! The ones the delivery crew struggled with in the Med. 10 years old!

Photo is on the journey home, but the race was in 20knts+ and on the nose!

Sunreef 74 Completes Delivery to Florida

yacht,71,sunreef74wildberry-exterior-03Wildberry, the first Sunreef 74 completes delivery to Florida. She arrived yesterday in Ft Lauderdale to complete its 6000 nm delivery from the yard in Poland.
During the 42 day voyage there were planned stopovers in France and Madeira. At each stage the captain created technical reports which gave valuable feedback to the builders.


The builders, the brokers and most importantly, the Owner were able to follow progress of the delivery via a secure dedicated webpage created by Reliance Yacht Management that gave live updates, positions, speed, weather charts and reports from the captain and shore based support.
On arrival and handover in the Florida the Owner’s representative made the comment, “The boat looks good, everyone has done a great job.”

The Owner later said

Nick, we were on the boat yesterday and it looks great. Your delivery crew did a great job of taking care of it. Captain N is a first class delivery captain and I’d highly recommend him to anyone for a delivery. I was especially pleased to see that you took care of the boat as if it was his own and would deliberately slow his delivery time to avoid pushing the boat more than it should be.
The thoroughness of his delivery report with the “squawks” of what is broken or may warrant attention, including potential improvements, was exactly what I was hoping for.
Nick, if you every need a recommendation for your company or this particular delivery crew; I’d be happy to provide one.
