Sometimes as a boat owner, you don't have the time to relocate your boat to the warmer southern climate. Captain Chris has a solution and the owners of this gorgeous Selene trawler now have their boat in Florida, ready when they are!

ST34 ready for trawler training!

Beneteau Swift Trawler 34 Stuart to Miami
Early Monday morning we arrive at this brand new sporty Beneteau Swift Trawler 34, hop aboard and do our safety checks in preparation for a delivery to Miami Beach. The new owner won’t be aboard our trip from Stuart, FL to see how well the boat handles…there’s always tomorrow when we do trawler training.

Kadey Krogen 58 Trawler Nonstop Ocean Operation from Fort Pierce, FL to Norfolk, VA.
It is summer and time for the another migration to the Chesapeake Bay. Steve and Sandy asked us to travel with them on a nonstop ocean cruise from Vero Breach, FL to the Chesapeake.

This Trojan waits for the straps to be placed properly before she's lifted aboard the ship.

Trojan Sportfisherman Delivery to Australia via Palm Beach Freighter
We are on another delivery to Palm Beach. Easy trip you might say but then she must be prepared as deck freight, shipping to the new owner in Australia!

This Grand Banks 46 sits happily at her dock in the Chesapeake Bay.

Grand Banks 46 Delivery from Hollywood Fl to Fairlee Creek MD
The Snowbird migration is in full swing and we have a Grand banks 46 Trawler to deliver home to the Chesapeake Bay. This annual boating ritual coincides with another related migration- The Loopers. The American Great Loop Cruisers Association is also headed north to their Spring Rendezvous in Myrtle Beach, SC. As a Lieutenant Sponsor we are proud to fly the Blue Burgee as we cruise north on this wonderful trawler.

Oops! This yacht hanging in a cradle over the ICW isn't a Kadey Krogen. But it IS the first yacht off loaded from our ship. We are next!

Kadey Krogen 48 Delivered from Taiwan to Your Marina
As we arrived at commercial pier number 25 in Port Everglades we count 6 yachts… and our Kadey Krogen is the smallest at 48 feet. We feel lucky that we are scheduled to be the second yacht and number one is all ready to be hoisted up and over the side. Unlike unloading a sack of potatoes, there is a real skill and plan needed to expertly launch a fine yacht from this grimy freighter. We are about to learn the one NEW hitch in our usual plan...

From the ICW in Fort Lauderdale we see the CCNI Punta Arenas loading cargo. So we wait...and wait...and wait.
