Yacht Delivery Captain 
Sailboat Delivery --  "We contacted a few other captains who work independently. Your daily rate was better then theirs and the added services you offered (epirb, life raft, online route tracking - things that would save us time and hassle) set you above the independent people. I actually don't know of any other businesses like yours (so you must be better at marketing!) - but stacked against the independent captains, it was kind of a no brainer - a one-stop shop and there was piece of mind that comes with going through a company with formal contracts, etc. (whether that's concrete piece of mind or just psychological, it's good nonetheless!) - rather than just some random guy who says he knows what he's doing. Also, I really appreciated your availability and responsiveness - that was a huge plus.  Buyer 37 ft. Sailboat.
