American Boat Captains, LLC proudly offers this service to the private and commercial boating communities who seek superior service and exceptional professionalism.
Undertaking on-the-water deliveries is a demanding and serious responsibility. Regardless of the time and distance involved, the Captain and crew must be highly skilled mariners who possess strong seamanship, navigational, and planning skills. In addition, they must have an extensive knowledge of navigational regulations, of tide, current and weather predictions, and an uncompromising dedication to safety.
We will deliver your vessel to any port along the eastern seaboard or western rivers as well as to most destinations in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. Our goal is to deliver your vessel as efficiently as possible without compromising the safety of the vessel or her crew.
Each delivery is performed by a highly experienced US Coast Guard licensed Captain or Master. The number of crew required by her Captain depends upon the overall length of the vessel. Recreational vessels less than 65′ usually require only one crew member, those of greater length will require additional crew.
After receiving your preliminary information (see on-line form), the delivery process begins with the completion of a Delivery Questionnaire and a modest deposit of $100.00. Upon receipt, the logistics of your delivery route are intricately charted and a formal estimate is prepared which includes the anticipated time to complete the delivery, the associated professional fees, travel, provisioning, supplies, fuel and port costs, and any other fees deemed necessary to complete your objective.

American Boat Captains, LLC is a corporate organization providing delivery and other marine services. It is headquartered in Blue Bell Pennsylvania and has a reputation for exceptional service, honesty and a highly reliable, experienced staff.
In order to maintain this level of professional commitment and safety to our clients, we cannot and will not compete with those individuals who offer similar services and who have not made the same commitment. There are many part-time, less obligated captains who offer their “delivery services” at a lesser cost in order to take a “paid boat ride”. Your investment represents their vacation, not their livelihood. Please consider this while making your decision.
We are available to answer your questions and provide our expertise to assist you with your delivery needs. Please see our rate chart and go to our on-line form to begin the process.
