SY ESCAPE II - Port Vila, Vanuatu to Gold Coast, Australia, Jan 2018

I found Deliver My Yachts online and contacted Dylan re delivering my 43ft catamaran home to the Gold Coast from Vanuatu. From my initial email contact their service was prompt, courteous and efficient. Dylan thoroughly researched the vessel and its condition with first class pre-passage planning; the delivery was then executed without a hitch despite some adverse weather conditions and the yacht returned home in better condition than when it had departed! I would highly recommend Dylan and his crew and will definitely continue to use them for the trips time prevents me from doing.
Thanks again chaps!!!

Regards,
Bill and Liz Donnelly -owners of Perry 43 Escape sailing catamaran. 

SY KARISMA - MBTBC, Brisbane to Mossman Bay, Sydney, Dec 2017

I would thoroughly recommend Dylan and DMY. We had a very short window to deliver our new purchase, a secondhand Hanse 350, from Brisbane to Sydney in time for Xmas 2017 - a surprise for the kids. Given work pressures in the lead up to the mobilisation, I had to lean heavily on Dylan to ensure everything was taken care of, and most importantly the vessel was safe for the 500nm trip. Fortunately the weather was favourable, apart from a southerly buster giving a full 40 kts on final approach to Sydney. DMY provided frequent updates, delivering Karisma blemish free and provided a thorough run through of the vessel on arrival. Having worked with many professional skippers in the offshore industry I can honestly say that Dylan's professionalism and pride in achieving the best outcome for his clients is clear.

SY SEABIRD - Pittwater to Batemans Bay, July 2017

A very friendly and professional service. The job was organised and carried out in a savvy manner. I was always kept in the loop and had no trouble in contacting the organisers. I felt complete trust in the whole service so thanks Deliver My Yachts!

MV IMPACT - Hamilton Island to Gold Coast, July 2017

The boys took my 54' Kingfisher, flybridge cruiser from Hamilton Island to the Gold Coast. Great updates, they looked after the vessel, saved a heap of money on fuel, did some repairs on the route down, washed down and cleaned up. Recommend them without exception.

SY PAPADILO - Melbourne to Sydney, June 2017

After purchasing my yacht “ Papadilo” in Melbourne and needing it to be delivered to Sydney, I started the process of trying to find a delivery crew to sail the boat up.

 

I rang several companies including “Deliver My Yachts” and I found that from my initial contact with Dylan he was passionate about his business and making the potential customer comfortable in the process.

 

He communicated exceptionally well to me throughout the lead up to the delivery, and supplied a raft of information in document form on preparation of the boat and safety requirements to ensure a smooth delivery.

 

Upon their arrival in Melbourne, Dylan and his crew carried out a full and thorough inspection of “Papadilo” 24 hours prior to departure.

 

During the voyage, Dylan communicated to me every evening at @ 1800 (signal permitting) giving vessel position and any news. This was a great comfort as I was able to track their progress.

 

Upon arrival in Sydney, Dylan and his crew (after a well earned cappuccino and hot shower!) cleaned the boat and then sat down with me and went through a full debrief of the voyage.

I would happily recommend Dylan and “Deliver My Yachts” as their communication and professionalism is outstanding.

 

Certainly a big comfort to have whilst your pride and joy is out at sea!

MY AVENTURA II - New Vessel Handover and Tuition, Maritimo Gold Coast, March 2017

We took Delivery on March 24th, 2017 of our New Maritimo 59. Dylan was helpful & diligent took all the notes on handover day. Went through all equipment manuals and tested everything for warranty purpose. Having Dylan gave us the confidence of taking delivery of a larger vessel. I would recommend him for any handover.

 

Thanks again for a great experience.

SY FORTUNA - Townsville to Hervey Bay, December 2016

First class delivery company. Highly professional with great communication, they took a complicated, short notice situation and provided workable solutions, resulting in a very enjoyable and memorable experience. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided exceptional service with highly skilled and knowledgable staff. To find this level of professionalism and flexibility in the marine industry is exceptionally rare. We can not recommend them highly enough.

NAUTICAL CIRCLE - Gold Coast to Yeppoon, August 2016

We were in a typical dilemma between weather and a delivery date.  Ian from Deliver My Yachts was assigned and he discussed the best window for the delivery. We were short handed and had time constraints but at the same time a safe delivery was his paramount issue. Ian consistently exuded reserved confidence, which in turn built confidence within our small delivery crew.  Despite all this the weather turned foul en-route and Ian's leadership was outstanding. He assisted the crew where required and in other respects lets us get on with it, after assessing the skill each possessed. 


Coupled to Ian's skills the land based back up provided by Deliver My Yachts complimented the thoroughly professional approach and personally I would not undertake nor assign a delivery to any other group.

SOFIA - Mooloolaba to Airlie Beach, June 2016

For the second year running life and weather got in the way to bring our yacht Sofia from Mooloolaba to the Whitsundays for the winter cruising season. It was early June and in true SE Queensland style the weather was closing in again which meant we would miss our window to bring her north this year. A friend said why not hire a skipper and crew to take Sofia north before the weather hit, if everything aligned she could be there in a week or two. A Google search brought up many businesses offering their services. Deliver My Yachts were on the top step of Google so I researched the business. Their Facebook site sealed the deal for me so I sent an email request through their website. Dylan had just stepped of a catamaran, which undertook a 4-week crossing to Australia but was eager to help us bring Sofia north. He said “ let me check the weather and I’ll get back to you soon” His next phone call surprised us all. "I’ll fly down tonight from Airlie Beach with a crew and we’ll set off tomorrow. We should beat the weather as it will follow us north” Wow, we were shocked and delighted!

True to his word he arrived that evening, slept on-board and after checking our yacht from bow to stern he untied the next morning and sailed away. 3 days later Sofia rounded the point at Airlie Beach. I caught a line at the dock and stepped on-board. She had travelled non-stop for 3 days and nights but to look at her she may as well have been pampered for 3 days. She was immaculate inside and out after they had cleaned her while underway. Dylan and his crew were already packed and after a short but thorough handover she was back in our hands and in the Whitsundays!

Professionalism and honesty is rare in the marine industry. From now on we will be using Deliver My Yachts to move our yacht the long distances. It really is a no brainer. I took this picture below at Whitehaven Beach a week after Dylan brought the boat up. I can honestly say this picture would have had to wait until next year had Deliver My Yachts been unable to bring her north in June. Thank you again Dylan. My family and I appreciate everything you have done for us to bring Sofia to the beautiful Whitsundays. We’ll see you later in the year when she is ready to come south again.

The Patten family.

Andrew Patten – Owner

SY SLOW DANCE - Palau to Townsville, Australia, September 2016

From the very moment I made my first enquiry with Deliver My Yachts (DMY) I was impressed by the promptness and thoroughness of all their responses. My mission was to get an 84' Steel Ketch from Palau, Micronesia to Sydney, Australia. DMY not only provided the skipper I needed, but a remarkable support and information service that (as it happened) was much needed to complete the 8,000km voyage!

 

Voyage preparation requirements and guidelines were worked through meticulously and thoroughly. Dylan Kuipersmith provided great value in advising on safety, routing, weather, customs, immigration, port entry and exit. Not only advising our team but also providing advance notice to Port of Entry Authorities in the Solomon Islands and Australia of our pending arrival. This not only fast tracked the arrival/departure process but provided important information for anchoring and movement around unfamiliar ports and harbours. In our case we had significant mechanical problems at sea, and Dylan went out of his way to make contact with various mechanics and specialists advising on repair and recovery procedures.

DMY provided much more than a skipper (Ian), who by the way was a true professional with many years experience in long distance yacht delivery. The skipper's competency in ocean passage was much appreciated and necessary. Skills included not only passage making, navigating, mechanical repair, but also added benefits of underwater GoPro video of hull condition, and operational videos for onboard equipment and crew training - thank you Ian! For us the entire delivery process was made simple but safe with all the details known and unknown being taken care of by DMY! I would highly recommend DMY services!

ALLEGRO - Airlie Beach to Mooloolaba, April 2015

I recently had to get my boat from Airlie Beach to Mooloolaba. Dylan from Deliver My Yachts was able to meet my request at very short notice and the boat was delivered safely and well ahead of schedule. I accompanied Dylan and was very impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail. He is very focused at all times on crew safety and ensuring the boat is delivered clean and mechanically sound. As a novice sailor I am now far more skilled thanks to Dylan's mentoring. Cheers for a great trip.

S.V. ESCAPE - Airlie Beach to Townsville, February 2014

Dylan Kuipersmith was excellent in delivering sailing vessel Escape from Airlie Beach to Townsville. I had recently listed my yacht for sale however it sold at a tricky time when I was unavailable to deliver her myself.

 

Dylan was recommended by a friend, was easy to contact, and was able to prepare and crew the vessel at short notice and deliver her on a short deadline to meet with the new owner. I was impressed by his organised and honest approach that provided great customer service (to both me and the new owners) and attention to detail. The boats condition was maintained, and she was cleaner on handover compared to when she left.

 

Dylan was an easy solution to my problem, and will be my first point of contact for future deliveries and recommendations to others.

WINGS DIVING ADVENTURES - Master/Engineer, 2011 - 2014

Dylan Kuipersmith was employed as Master/Engineer with Wings Diving Adventures from May 2011 to January 2014 on our sailing catamarans Wings II and Wings III.

 

As Master and Engineer he was responsible for the successful daily operation of our three and four day live-aboard sailing and diving charters within the Whitsunday Islands and the Outer Great Barrier Reef that catered for up to 29 guests.

 

Dylan consistently carries out all tasks that I as a commercial vessel owner expect from a Master and Engineer, and strives at the following:

 

  • Safe vessel operations and seamanship

  • Effective communications between crew

  • Vessel maintenance

  • Organised, reliable and proactive approach to his position

 

Dylan has been a great skipper and asset for Wings Diving Adventures, and I wholeheartedly recommend him in his future endeavours.

 

Sincerely,

Mike Keyte – Owner/Director
