Gallivant 1 travelled a long way from Northern Queensland to the Tweed River before going on Covid Lockdown delaying her new owners from enjoying this beautiful 1987 ocean going mono-hull in their local area. The delivery team ensured the highest level of pre-departure preparation was adhered to allowing for another timely and successful passage. We are happy knowing the new owners were out enjoying their vessel and sailing Pittwater the day after the delivery team arrived.

This well equipped Lagoon 380 departed Mooloolaba, QLD into East-South-East wind and seas in order to take advantage of a high pressure system on the East Coast of Australia which made for fantastic downwind sailing as far as the South Coast of NSW. The commercially qualified delivery team made the best of conditions to sail one thousand two hundred nautical miles in nine days ensuring a non-stop passage to Hobart, Tasmania well ahead of schedule. Fantastic sailing enroute for another successful Complete Yacht Delivery.

Changeable weather conditions allowed a narrow weather window to move this 1996 Northshore 34 from Sandringham in Port Philip Bay to Lakes Entrance for its new owner. The delivery team perfectly timed their exit through The Rip at Melbourne Heads to make the most of conditions allowing them to arrive safely before a 40 knot South Westerly crossed Wilson's Promontory and continued across the Bass Strait. The vessel owner was onboard to earn from the experienced Commercial Delivery Team.

This newly purchased Crowther 52 'Sanctuary' has a long established pedigree having completed a seven year, primarily solo, circumnavigation before the current owners purchased her in the Gold Coast, Australia. This family owned vessel required assistance for the open water portion of it's passage North. After joining the vessel and completing necessary checks the delivery team had an early morning start to ensure arrival at the infamously shallow Caloundra Bar on High Water. With strict time constraints Complete Yacht Delivery picked suitable conditions for the commercially qualified captain to finish another successful delivery.

SY 'Liza's Bateau' - Jeanneau 45. Mooloolaba, QLD to Newcastle, NSW.
Yacht Delivery Mooloolaba to Newcastle

The vessel owner was very happy with their first Complete Yacht Delivery experience and the professional, commercially qualified crew provided. This trip was a real mixed bag in terms of weather. It departed Mooloolaba, QLD in ideal conditions and had some heavier weather off Port Stephens before arriving in Newcastle, NSW. The vessel made very good time on the way South and earned a rest before it continues on to Melbourne, VIC.
