Delivery Crews

Ship delivery with a manned crew is the transportation of a ship or boat on its own bottom. Our licensed professional captains and crews have worldwide experience on vessels of every type insuring the safe, efficient handling of your vessel.  Bayfront Marine, Inc. has been providing this service for over thirty five years and our preparation procedures are the best in the business. We make sure your vessel is seaworthy, equipped and able to handle the delivery before departure, avoiding unnecessary interruptions of the delivery voyage. This specialized niche in the marine industry, requires our crews to be flexible and resourceful in their approach to our customers’ needs and to insure a safe, fast  and efficient delivery voyage.

Broken trips are costly and often avoidable. Bayfront Marine, Inc. has a worldwide support network to assist us in refueling, mechanical repairs and port stops enroute. Vessel operations logistics throughout the voyage provide the framework that result in the lowest ratio of broken trips in the business.

We provide daily position reports, keeping the owner, shipyard and agents informed throughout the voyage.

After the voyage, we hand the vessel over in better shape than we received it, clean and in good order. Our engine and deck logs  provide the documentation the owners need to assess the performance of the vessel.
