The next Lagoon 50 under contract with Reliance Yacht Management was delivered to Athens this week. With little preparation required she will go into charter and start generating an income for her owner ASAP. She was collected from Bordeaux, France where she was launched, commissioned and prepared for delivery. Leading delivery Captain Lionel Lebrenn and the crew departed France on the boat’s maiden voyage. The yacht arrived in immaculate condition.
5 more Lagoon catamarans for the same charter fleet will be delivered by Reliance yacht Management over the next few weeks.
The Nautitech 46 Razzmatazz completes its delivery from the Virgin Islands to the Miami Boat Show. Reliance Yacht Management was contracted by Horizon Yacht Charters to ensure this beautiful catamaran arrived in perfect condition and show ready. Many thanks to the delivery team Bruce, Kelly and Danielle for a great job, well done.
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.
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 Aeroyachtfor 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.
Reliance Yacht Management are proud to be part of the team helping their loyal clients Horizon Yacht Charters deliver new boats into the fleet.
After Hurricane Irma many of our clients suffered significant losses to their fleets and it is amazing to see their response and determination to bounce back. The video shows just a few of the boats being delivered from Europe and the US by ship and by sea.
