Need a Delivery? We Deliver Boats So You Don’t Have To
Yacht and Power Boat Delivery
One of the core services of Naviguru Marine Services has always been yacht deliveries. At Naviguru, we spend time with our clients to understand their needs, and use meticulous planning, to ensure all deliveries are executed thoroughly and without fault. Our service works by combining our crew with shore-based management and support resulting in an excellent success rate.
Our professional crew will safely move your vessel via sea from its current location to your desired destination, within Florida, the ICW, or whatever destination you require. Our crew will go to your vessel and prepare her for delivery. Departure and delivery times may vary due to weather conditions and owner requirements. We will do our best to make the trip as quickly as possible, but safety of the boat and crew is paramount at all times.
Skipper and Crew Service
We thoroughly know and utilize the best crew available, and regularly provide vessel owners with skippers and crew. Whether you are an experienced mariner and simply need additional crew for some extra hand or a less experienced sailor who needs an experienced Master, we can provide you with the crew or skipper you need.
Vessel Handover and Training
We often support new vessel owners during a planned two day handover process on your boats first trip underway! Our experienced skipper will be present during handover discussions that can help identify any teething issues (if any)
with your new boat from initial use. Because our experienced skippers are already familiar with the systems of a large variety of vessels, the handover will be very thorough.
This knowledge can then be transferred to you thoroughly over the course of several days, to ensure that you have a good understanding of your entire boat and all systems. Owners love this service, because it provides them with a very good working knowledge of their new boat, and gives them the confidence to operate independently. We often head off on your boat’s first voyage away (often an intracoastal passage, or short Bahamas trip) while you have the full support of a skipper.
A vessel delivery can be added to this service. For example, you spend a couple of days with our skipper who drives and teaches all the vessel systems, and then together (plus more crew if required) you will deliver your own vessel to your home! Depending on the destination, you’ll get some great offshore experience too!
Marine / Sailing Training – Private or Small Group
Naviguru offers private or small group tutoring for students who need help in getting familiar with their vessel or coaching on sailing skills.
Our standard rate is $ 65 / hr for private instruction, $ 15 / hr per additional student. Up to 3 students max. More students can be provided training upon request if everyone in group is comfortable with the increased group size. WE GUARANTEE OUR SERVICES: If you are not happy with anything after the first hour, the class is free.
Located in Lake Mary, Florida, Naviguru Marine has easy access to all of central Florida and the coasts. We come to you! We can also provide delivery / crew services for the entire ICW passage if you are purchasing a vessel in the northeast and coming to Florida, just ask us about this!
Boats for Sale By Owner
An easy and honest alternative to buying or selling a boat without the use of a broker. We use our contact and distribution network to connect buyers with sellers and vice versa. Email us with your boat photos and descriptions.
Nautical Host / Hostess / Provisioning Services
Want to entertain friends on a night out on the water on your own boat, but do not want to cook? We can provide you with a host / hostess who will take care of all your food and drink needs. Pair this will a skipper and you have an incredible night out on the water to entertain friends without the hassles of sailing or cooking yourself.
Pre-Purchase Condition Survey
A pre-purchase survey is primarily carried out on behalf of potential buyers, but it is also used by banks, insurance companies and P&I clubs as part of their due diligence requirements.
A pre purchase boat inspection consists of a rapid examination afloat of all readily accessible areas to ascertain the vessel’s condition and is usually carried out in no more than one day. A Pre-Purchase suvey provides the following:
- Provides an independent evaluation of the condition of your vessel.
- Helps you demonstrate the operational reliability of your vessel, regardless of their age.
- Helps in the early identification of deficiencies, maximizing use and reducing unplanned maintenance.
- Assists in maximizing residual asset value.
Examination of Records
Whenever you are planning to buy an existing vessel, you need an accurate history of the vessel to help you evaluate the investment potential. Without such information, defects arising from historical deficiencies may jeopardize the commercial viability of your proposed acquisition. And vessels that do not meet specific survey requirements may not even qualify for certification.
We can examine vessel records and prepare a confidential marine survey report based on our findings that will help you assess the commercial viability of your acquisition.
