Need captain and cleaning crew

My friend just bought a 40' Piver Trimarin in Big Pine Key, Florida.

He needs:
1. Someone to clean it up where it sits. I don't have a lot of information but if you are interested call me and I'll have more by then and can supply you with the new owners contact info. I figured I would ask here because if their is someone in the keys now that knows boats I'm thinking they will do a better job than some random cleaning person.

2. Someone to bring the boat from where it is now to Branford CT.

The owner will not be along for the trip.
I may be able to help for part of the trip maybe from Cape May north.
Depending on your needs.

This boat as told to me is in pretty decent shape. It has a vetus diesel with less than 200 hours on it for starters.


My cell is 203-605-8801

Re: Need captain and cleaning crew

Your friend may want to contact his (or a local, if he didn't use one) yacht broker. They will have the contact information for both cleaning personnel and competent captains.
As a good part of this trip will entail traveling in the gulfstream, unless it is motored up the ICW, the potential for disaster is very real, for an inexperienced crew. Hiring a delivery captain is not something that should be done looking for the cheapest person, but the best and in the case of a trimaran, one with multihull experience.
It is not going to be cheap, but at least your friend will have the pleasure of sailing his new boat, rather than searching for another on the insurance pay out for the loss of this boat.

Good idea but this was a private sale.

The multi-hull experience thing will probably be a problem. Not that many I suspect.

I'm sure any yacht broker would help w/ a few names and/or recommendations.

I agree with capta. The broker isn't recommending a rival broker.
