delivery - bvi to Long Island Sound

Hey,

Again, since it's winter and I can't sail or even work on my boat, I have been reading yachtworld (which is very dangerous). So I find a boat that may be 'too good to pass up'. The big problem is the boat is in Tortola, and I am in NY.

Anyway, since you would know a lot better than me, what would a typical delivery of a 37' boat from the BVI to the Long Island sound (say Port Jefferson) involve? I would not be on the boat and I would hire a delivery captain. How many people? How long would it take? Rough costs?

Anything else?

Thanks!
Barry

PM BUBB2, he's a delivery captain and can give you some realistic answers.

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.

Barry there are a few questions that need to be answered before a true estimate can be given but typically your looking at crew transportation to and from the boat, boat expenses, (fuel, port costs, etc), and whatever crew compensation you've negotiated. If in a hurry it would take about three weeks +/- to NY.

Please check your PM's.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the info. However, I have decided to come back to reality and I won't be buying a boat this year.

In case you were interested, I was considering this boat:
2005 Beneteau Oceanis 373 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

A 2005 Bene 373 for $80K seems like a real good deal.
