Classic Yacht Delivery

Thumbs Up Sailing Yacht Delivery - Skippers who Understand

Classic Yacht Deliveries require a particular kind of skipper. Here at Thumbs Up Sailing Yacht Delivery we pride ourselves on having delivery skippers with a lot of Classic Yacht experience.

Having raced, chartered and delivered many different Classic Yachts we understand how to handle the more complex rigs. How to take care of the varnish and brightwork. And importantly, how to navigate confidently on yachts that won’t necessarily have all the modern features of an ‘out the box’ new build. We have experience with S&S offshore racers. New York Pilot Cutters & 1800’s Gaffers.

“Matthew Kotze was our skipper for three years. He looked after Undina, a 45ft Philip Rhodes centreboard sloop built in 1956 and then successfully handled the transition to Argyll, a 57ft S&S racing Yawl built by Simms in 1948. Both boats were beautifully maintained classics and complex to handle, especially with a small crew. Matthew was thoroughly competent in command of both of these yachts.” Griff Rhys Jones
