Yacht Transportation

Prior to making a commitment with any yacht transport company, it is recommended you do your research and carefully evaluate the terms of the contract. Some providers have ambiguous conditions and require upfront payments before a vessel is even confirmed on a particular route. In addition, the contract may state they have up to a year from the date of the contract to perform. Look for a user-friendly contract including a reasonable cancellation policy.

August 2015:Read this warning report from the US Federal Maritime Commission.

The ARC is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1200 people every year to sail 2700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia.

The ARC is for everyone; families with children, tough racers,cruising couples, big boats and modest boats. Crossing the Atlantic together, but having their own adventures. More than just a boat race, the ARC is about friendships made ashore in the two weeks of pre-departure activities continued over the radio net at sea. It’s about arriving in Saint Lucia to be met on the dock with a rum punch and a chilled beer, knowing you have achieved something fantastic - crossing an ocean on a small sailboat.
