Lagoon 630 Long Monday departs for America

The Latest Lagoon 630 Motor Yacht departs for Florida .

Reliance Yacht Management was tasked to deliver her safely from the factory in Bordeaux to her final destination in Ft Lauderdale. This involved the coordination of the various elements required to create a seamless, multi model delivery.

After launching, Long Monday required the necessary QC checks and sea trials before she was accepted by the client. Temporary safety equipment was supplied and Reliance Yacht Management moved her up the coast to La Rochelle where she was prepared for loading. Further QC checks were made and protection installed in the vulnerable areas. The dinghy was covered to protect it for the duration of the shipping.

The Captain captured in video the moment  it was lifted out of the water on board and secured to the deck.

At every stage Reliance Yacht Management organised and liaised with yacht builder, QC, captains, shipping lines, insurers, port authorities, document agents etc to ensure a smooth transition. Reliance acted as the single point of contact throughout.

How Did That Boat Get There?

Along with yacht ownership comes certain responsibilities and requisite services such as insurance, finance and moorings. These are obvious and will come as no surprise, and many will already have at least a minimum understanding of them. The one service that is often overlooked, mis-understood and often forgotten about, almost until the sale is made, is the yacht delivery.

Nick Irving, Director and Founder of Reliance Yacht Management spreads some light on the subject in his recently published article in the September/October 2016 issue of MULTIHULLS Magazine

Brian Edmonds 1945-2016

It is with a sad heart that I announce the passing of Captain Brian Edmonds.
 
Born in 1945 he had been around boats for most of his life and owned his first craft at the age of 22. He completed his first Atlantic crossing at 27. He had been a delivery skipper for almost 40 years delivering craft to the Mediterranean, N/S Atlantic, America, Caribbean, Canary Islands, and Baltic and in the Indian Ocean.
 
In recent years he also worked for sailing schools and on charter yachts in the UK and Spain. Also at this time he was a bosun maintaining yachts, motor vessels and dive boats which entailed anything from diesel engines to sails, rigging, grp repairs, electrics, and communications systems. Over the last 30 years he was also known on the racing circuit and participated in channel handicap series, local racing as well as international racing in the capacity of crew, mate and captain.
 
His sailing experience was wide ranging from 6 metres up to 34 metres, Catamarans, sloops, ketches and motor vessels. His passages as a delivery Captain have been from a few miles to thousands of miles from Canaries to the West Indies many times. Also returning from North America /Caribbean back to Europe. His longest passage was from Dover to Durban South Africa passing through the Mediterranean, Suez, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean.
 
He was a true professional and will be sadly missed
