Skipper for Hire


At Skipper for Hire we understand that your yacht is also your pride and joy; therefore we make every effort to ensure that whenever onboard we act with the highest of professional standards.

Skipper and Crew Hire

Yacht Delivery


If you require a skipper for a short cruise with family and friends, or an experienced crew member to help you deliver your yacht to a distant port, we can help.  We have an extensive database of crew. We only use professional individuals with whom we have previously worked and who fit our high standards. Therefore, if we are unable to find anyone who meets your requirements, we won’t take on the contract.
