Nordhavn 47 'Bluewater'

Milt and Judy Baker

Founders of Bluewater Books and Charts

"I met Jerry Taylor and his wife and partner Wendy when I owned Bluewater Books and Charts in Ft Lauderdale as they were frequent customers. To be honest, I cannot remember when I first met them, but it was probably around 1990 and I have known them well ever since. At Bluewater I had occasion to meet and deal with many delivery skippers, but Jerry has always stood out in my mind as one of the most competent and most professional. He has been delivering yachts professionally over 30 years and more than 200,000 miles, which speaks volumes-there is nothing like experience! Of all the delivery skippers I know, if I needed my own boat delivered, Jerry is the first I would call.

I personally know of dozens of deliveries they have completed successfully, ranging from the 36-foot lobster boat owned by Bill Parlatore, founding editor of Passagemaker Magazine, to the 70-foot sailing yacht Maya they delivered from Ft Lauderdale, through the Panama Canal, and up the west coast to Seattle. The Taylors take great pride, justifiably so, in having had no accidents, losses, sinkings or other incidents in their 30+ years of professional yacht delivery

Bottom line: Jerry and Wendy have the hands-on experience to deliver any yacht between 30 and 100+ feet to any port in the world and a proven track record to assure owners and insurance companies that they will make a safe and professional delivery. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them for yacht deliveries. To me, they personify what a yacht delivery team ought to be!".
