Crew Yachtmasters Commercialy Endorsed
Experienced, qualified and well-motivated crew are the key to the success of any yacht. We understand the importance of placing and retaining a good crew onboard.
Our crew is formed by a group of professional, commercially endorsed Yachtmaster offshore skippers and experienced crew persons based on the south of Portugal. We offer a professional reliable delivery, relocation and new vessel commissioning service for yachts, motor vessels, fishing vessels and trawlers up to 200 tonnes.
During the delivery we endeavor to take the greatest possible care of your vessel and you can be assured that your vessel will be handled with care and experience in every situation from up close maneuvering in harbours and marinas to heavy weather sailing.
We operate on a principle of "minimum impact" on your vessel and will do a full clean down upon arrival at the destination. As the vessel owner it is up to you whether you would like to participate in the journey and whether you wish to act as crew or a passenger. If you prefer not to accompany us on the delivery, you will be kept continually informed on your vessels progress.
Normally a delivery will require a skipper and one crew. Longer deliveries and/or more labour intensive vessels may require an extra crew member.
All our crew members speak english, spanish and portuguese.

- Best sailing destiny: Med, Italy
Started sailing when I was 7 and recentrly started my own Sailing Lessons and Cruises business called Sunset Sailing in NJ with my brother. I guess the best sailing destination I've been to would probably have to be Riva Del Garda, Italy. I was born and raised in NYC, went to Harvard for a bachelors of science in Human Evolutionary Biology and worked at SunEdison, a solar company in San Francisco before deciding to get back to my roots in sailing. I grew up racing Optis Lasers 420s and Hobies on Barnegat Bay New Jersey and traveled a lot internationally before I went to Harvard, dropped off the team after freshman year because of the opportunity costs associated with it, and have gotten more involved in the long distance offshore racing since. I speak English, with a small amount of spanish.
