Delivery Capt. BVI to Australia

Hi all, I would like a quote (Approx) for the delivery of a 06/07 380 Lagoon from the BVI to Melbourne Aust. Would need to have done the trip before (safely)> Timeframe ..in the next few months but this may not be the safest time so I am prepared to wait as I think it is now!! but this is too earlie for me.

Thanks in advance.

This is actually getting quite late in the season, not for the Caribbean portion, but for the Pacific passages. Will anyone else be aboard and what is your delivery date (i.e. must the boat go straight across, or can it stop along the way)? Is the lagoon freshly out of a charter fleet? How much equipment of what type/age is aboard for this long haul or is a lengthy stop in St. Martin for parts and boat work part of the plan?

The captain would need to get crew for this trip and return airfare for him/herself and crew is not going to be cheap. I had a dockwise quote for around US$40,000 for Ft. Lauderdale to Sydney for a 43 monohull just so you have a comparison number. I seen to recall that there is a Kiwi captain here offerring just such deliveries but his name doesn't come to mind right now.

Z,
We have similar quote for 41' from South Carolina. The USD figure should be a bit lower at the moment so even with high fuel prices it would probably come in at around AUD$35000.

There is a Kiwi delivery service called Pacific Yacht Deliveries but I would avoid him (Chris Bone) like the plague - he stiffed me for $7000 on a $10K delivery from San Diego to Cabo to Tahiti. He's good with reef preservation but not good to delivery crews or owners - speaking from my and my crew's experiences, anyway.

ImASonOfASailor - transporting the boat from Florida to New Zealand costs 40K$ using Dockwise. If you look at the distance, it comes to about 8000 nautical miles and goes through the Panama Canal. Just as when you hire movers to take your stuff, you need to pay if someone else is doing this. A sailboat of 41 feet length will average around 5 knots, or 120nm a day. Hiring someone to sail the boat this distance (and 1 person is not enough, more likely 3 or perhaps 4) will take around 66 days plus wait times in the canal. Even at $100 a day that is around $20K in salary plus food costs and travel expenses. TANSTAAFL

66 days of working 12 hours a day is 792 hours. Consider the average person works 40 hours a week, that's 19.8 weeks, call it 20 weeks. Considering that the average working person gets 9 holidays, 10 vacation and 5 personal/sick days, that's just under 1/2 a years work. If there are 4 people delivering the boat, 35K is only $8,750 per person for almost 1/2 a years work. My math isn't perfect, but it's close enough to say that they don't do it for the money.
