Charleston Sail Blue Horizon Sailboat 2

The picture above shows a boat we delivered, for a new owner, from Naples Florida to Hilton Head, SC. in 2012. The vessel shown is the 36ft. Kaarina class cutter named the Bonaventure. Over a 10 day period, we negotiated canals, lock gates, bascule bridges and 100’s of miles of the ICW. We also sailed offshore for a couple of days to complete the 600 mile voyage.

Charleston Sail delivery rate is $300 per day for the services of Captain Paul and an additional crewman is $200 per day.

Average daily progress along the ICW is 60 miles. Offshore passages are influenced by weather conditions and usually average 110 to 140 miles per day.

An estimate will be given of the number of days needed to cover the required delivery voyage. We would expect your vessel to be seaworthy with functioning navigation lights, engine, current flares and anchor system. An initial payment of 50% of the estimated total delivery cost will be required at the start and the balance on delivery at the final destination. Call (843) 345-7790 for a quote.

   "We had the great pleasure of having Captain Paul Mitchell sail with us from Charleston SC to Fort Pierce FL. Paul provided the piloting for our journey of 3 days and 2.5 nights. His recommendation for the route allowed us to sail the entire way. He navigated us around Cape Canaveral area to avoid the currents and shoaling and kept us between shore and Gulf Stream. Paul kept a constant track of our route both on paper and electronically for the entire journey. We knew where we were at all times. He also provided information on the shipping lanes and when we would most likely see traffic. His knowledge and skill were excellent. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone considering hiring a Captain."
