Satellite Tracking & Communications
Trusted Yacht Delivery utilizes the latest satellite technology service to show the progress of your vessel during deliveries. From the moment we leave the dock until we reach your intended destination you can monitor our progress.
This service also gives us satellite communications with you, the Coast Guard or anyone else that we may need to reach when we are outside of normal cellular communications.

Yacht Delivery from Gulfport, MS to Kemah, TX
Yacht Delivery from Gulfport, MS to Kemah, TX. While on boat delivery from Boston, MA to Middle River on the Chesapeake Bay, on a 41 Cruisers, I received a call from my new client. Tommy had been looking for a captain to help him and a friend move his ‘new to him’ 41DS Hunter from Gulfport, MS to Kemah, TX in the Houston area. After agreeing on a price and date, we were all set to meet in Gulfport to start the delivery.
Check Ride Certification – Insurance Underwriters Evaluation Sign Off by Captain
If your insurance company requested an evaluation and/or training, you can get either (or both) from Captain Dave Subers.
New boat owners as well as experienced yachters with new policies are often requested to have a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain sign off on the yacht owner’s vessel familiarity and operation before the new boat’s insurance policy goes into effect.

How to become a Boat Captain…it’s Easy
Are you a seasoned boater who loves taking friends and family out on the water? Or perhaps while growing up, you spent a lot of time out on the water and being around people who love boating? Do you daydream about nautical charts and make plans for the fun of it? If yes is your answer to any of these, then becoming a charter boat captain may be a suitable profession for you.
Why Hire a Captain to deliver or receive your boat from a Shipping Transport Company
The process all started when the yacht broker contacted Trusted Yacht Delivery to help with a delivery of a 2017 51’ SeaRay Flybridge that needed to go Miami to Freeport Bahamas to be loaded on the ship shipping ship called the Happy Dragon.
Boat Deliveries don’t always go according to Plan
I was recently contacted by a new boat owner to help him move his boat from Sanibel Island on the West Coast of Florida to Jacksonville. In my planning we were going to travel through Fort Myers, and then proceed through the lock system of the Okeechobee waterway. Our trip was planned to go through Lake Okeechobee and then on to Stuart Florida. Unfortunately as we approached the Port Myaca lock, the starboard side engine started to overheat.
