I see your point. And yes, I agree, for a straight delivery all expenses should be paid by the owner.
But here, this is NOT the case. The boat is in a great shape, just went through professional overhaul. Electrics, Engines, Carpentry, Electronics, etc... So up to now, no repair jobs required.
Also the crew need NOT be experienced as the Capt. is and also the other crewmember. Itīs just about redundancies and workload sharing, eg. night watch. Itīs more fun when you are 3 or 4 on board, donīt you agree?
Also, if the WX is unsuitable, departure will be delayed accordingly. No hurry to get there. The Cat is fast anyhow and will make it in no time.
This all means: The trip is about fun and relaxing. No delivery, no rush. Think of it as vacation, where perhaps only a destination is given.
