Using Deliveries to Market your Services

Generate more interest in boat sales and charters

Finding new people to buy your product or service is an important part of the entire sales process. It may be tough for some people, but if your goal is to increase sales then you need to figure out which sales strategy will be effective for your target customer. Whether it is for boat sales or charter, it is generally accepted that social media is an essential part of the marketing mix.

There are so many more ways to get your product seen by customers than ever before. What’s the best part? They’re all free. You can use social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and your blog to your advantage. By building relationships with your customers through these channels you can access more people than ever.

Benefits of content marketing include:

  • More access to qualified leads.
  • More channels to sell your product.
  • Lower costs to acquire customers.

It is important to remember that using social media depends on having good quality and relevant content. You will lose potential leads if your subject matter is irrelevant.

Lagoon 42 delivered to Miami Boat Show

Reliance Yacht Management is pleased to announce the delivery of the Lagoon 42 hull no. 199 sailing catamaran. Her maiden voyage was from the commissioning port in Les Sables d’Olonne, France to Ft Lauderdale. A voyage of 5000nm. The delivery was contracted by the leading Lagoon dealers, the Catamaran Company with offices in Ft Lauderdale.

The yacht delivery company prides itself on customer satisfaction and this latest delivery is a case in point. Thanks, has to go to Captain Andreas Fechs for the safe and efficient delivery. The client feed back on handover reads “Capt Andreas is very personable and professional….. the yacht was in great condition”

Care was taken from outset with protection of the vulnerable areas. The route taken was also important to minimise or eliminate any wear and tear. Timing your weather window to cross Biscay is essential in January. The yacht carried on to Cascais in Portugal where the engines had their first warranty service. Brief stops were made in the Canaries and the Cape Verde island before crossing to the Virgin Islands and then up to Ft Lauderdale.

The boat will be available to view at the Miami Show.

Nautitech Open 46 Flo delivered

Last Atlantic Crossing Delivery of 2017 Completed


A BIG thanks to Captain Lionel Lebrenn and his crew for another successful delivery. Flo, a Nautitech 46 catamaran was collected from La Rochelle and delivered to her new home in the Grenadines where she will be available for charter. The care taken at every stage meant that Flo arrived in perfect condition and ready to start work.

Thanks also to Gregor at Aeroyacht for appointing Reliance Yacht Management to complete the delivery.

The Yacht was commissioned in La Rochelle, France and the crew joined soon after. A series of quality control and procedures and boat preparation was completed before they were ready to depart. Weather can offer particular challenges in Biscay in winter and finding the right weather window for departure is essential to make a safe start to the delivery. Searout provide weather routing support for the Atlantic crossing

As a new yacht, the engines are required to have their initial service carried out by an authorised dealer. This was carried out by Yacht Works in Cascais, near Lisbon. The technicians had access to the vessel’s positions reports and ready to start as soon as the boat arrived to minimise delays and costs.

The Client was able to monitor the progress of all their yachts on delivery through their on line Yacht  Delivery Management Dashboard. This secure management system gives access to the latest position status, captain reports, photos and videos.

Sea Runner departed La Rochelle on the 19th October, two days after the Lagoon 450#561 had departed from Les Sables d’Olonne. Today Sea Runner shows a clear lead and closer to their destination

The route chosen by each is clearly different. Sea Runner had the benefit of our new Sea Router Service. The Lagoon 450 did not. (more…)
