I have secured the delivery of a Hylas 56 cutter, from Miami FL to the Virgin Islands.
2011 Hylas 56, in great shape with all the electronic toys
Scheduled departure date 3/15 but dependent upon weather, of course
Route is straight shot: East until 65W, then south to the islands
Could be extended motorsailing, in typically easterly winds
Expect an 8-day trip, plus 1 prep day and 1 cleanup day.
Need 3 crew, for a total of 4.
All crew must be experienced offshore, must send resumes and references
No per diem pay
Food is covered - no crew contribution
Transportation between Miami and your home.
At the present time, transportation to and from the boat are not offerred.
(Spirit Air flights from St Thomas-Miami should be available for $170-$250.
We will book tickets before departing Miami, to save costs.)
