Builders and Brokers
The team at North Star have extensive knowledge working with brokers and builders around the world and can provide advice and assistance for new or new to you yachts, from collecting a vessel on your behalf, providing a thorough inspection ensuring it meets expectation, to simply delivering the vessel to your home berth or joining you for vessel handovers and sea trails.
Not all vessels are set up for long distance sailing, and others may need some updates and preparation. Our expert team can provide a range of advice and skills to get your vessel up to standard, whether it be for a delivery we are undertaking on your behalf or to ensure you are ready for that dream trip.
We have extensive knowledge in vessels of all types with a plethora of industry contacts and would gladly advise and work with you to get the most out of your vessel.
It’s not always feasible to deliver a vessel under its own steam alone, due to limited range of fuel and water capacity, vessel size and ability or simply for economic reasons.
Shipping is commonly used for vessels of all classes for long passages, and for the uninitiated this can be both stressful and a bit of a warren, with a variety of logistical options available.
Our team has contacts internationally with existing relationships within the industry, therefore we are able to take the stress out of shipping by arranging and managing the process for you.
