High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yacht delivery is an industry organized around the simple act of moving vessels - sailing or power yachts - from one destination to another anywhere around the world on their own hulls. IT is largely a private industry working on daily or lump sum rates, where normally the captain is the most or only person aboard the crew that is paid. THere are tens of thousands of private yachts, which move from country to country or coastwise within a country annually. MOstly they follow the charter market for example to the Mediterranean or New England in the summer and the Caribbean or South Pacific in the northern hemisphere winter. CAptains and crew are answerable to the licensing authority of their citizenship or the flag of the vessel they work on. PRivate owners, by comparison, generally undertake cruising, without using professional crew.
