If the delivery captain is hired and his contract states he is responsible for providing the crew, I would guess that he is being paid to provide the crew, and should be paying the crew himself—not the owner—since he's already paid the captain to provide the crew.
If he is not paying the crew, and asking the prospective crew to pay for their passage, it would appear to me he is double-dipping.
The owner of the Maxi 80 should be paying for everything! Now if this guy is making money on the crew that he brings then the owner should some research on him before hiring him for such responsibility.
I did a few deliveries and the owner paid for everything. That is the way to make sure your boat will arrive in one piece.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
