Offshore Delivery Rates

There are lots of variables related to relocation of vessels of all types, and the rate can be either day-based or mileage-based.  Mileage-based deliveries are typically $6.00 – 7.50 per nautical mile depending on the route, vessel, and other factors.  Daily rates are based on any portion of calendar days.  Rates vary depending on season and unique situations.  I will work with you to make sure you are getting the best possible value with zero compromise to safety or efficiency.

There are both more and less expensive delivery captains in the industry.  My customers report that I provide the best delivery experience on the West Coast, at any price.

Owners are welcome to be aboard as crew.  This will save you on crew costs and give you an excellent opportunity to learn more about your vessel.  I will discuss the particulars of the voyage and review your background to make sure that you’ll be safe and effective as a crewmember.
