Default New 42' Yellowfin - Delivery Survery

Good Morning All - Well, the day is almost here. I ordered a 42' Yellowfin at the 2019 Miami Boat Show and I'm finally taking delivery late this week or next week.
Has anybody taken (specifically) delivery of a Yellowfin and would recommend OR not recommend a delivery survey. Meaning is there a long PUNCH list.? Or they pretty tight? I do see some value in having my guy go up and look through everything / run it to make sure its 100% before I come up. My wife and 3 boys will be running the boat the 350-400 miles from Bradenton to Lighthouse Point. If I get the weather window we will run it all the way to Key West for lunch before we turn home. I know its out of way but hey, no need to rush this experience.
Anyway, with COVID I have not gone to the factory and will not go until I take delivery.
Pictures to come soon! My Instagram has a lot of pics and videos (jsalt11486)

I'd have your guy take a look. Big investment and a simple task. And this way YF can fix anything before you run it a long way home and then have to start working on local repairs.

your boat will be making a trip to the water when she's all done. I would schedule a marine surveyor, John Campbell (baitkiller on here) go on that sea trial. He is out of Ft. Myers and very good.

Congrats. I’d schedule a day trip to the factory for yourself, along with a surveyor if you desire, to go over the entire boat before delivery. Do it with enough time for them to fix anything that you may find that isn’t to your liking. It’s much easier to have it done before it leaves than to discover it later and require a trip back to the factory.

This ^^^.

Go and seatrial the boat yourself. Take a punch list on a pad of EVERY feature on the boat. Don't get blinded by your excitement for getting your new toy. Check every piece of equipment and every switch and every piece of electronics for function. Take the owners manual for each piece of equipment and check the features while on the boat with it running. Wash the boat yourself...sounds dumb but when you do you will see every piece of fiberglass and thus find any defects. Look at the buss bars, and fuse panels. If you have chiller plates then check them for function. Fill the live wells and look for leaks while the pump is running from the pump through hull or sea chest all the way to the well. Run the boat with wells full. Look for leaks. You will learn about your boat and find potential problems. Then make a list of questions or problems that need to be fixed.

You wanted to enjoy the experience...no better way than literally going over every feature before it leaves the factory and while it can be repaired by THEM before you accept delivery.

Good luck and enjoy in good health.

I do agree with this but it requires me to go to factory run the the above test and then wait for them to repair.
I doubt they will turn all my repairs around same day so I can take the boat home. The idea of paying the survey is to do this before I get there.
Hence its all done when I show up.

one hundred percent do a delivery survey BEFORE you get there. have them fix on the punchlist items and then you can water test it and take it home.

I wouldn’t let the coronavirus BS keep me from visiting the factory. I actually have a child with a compromised immune system due to his genetic disorder and you won’t find me wearing a mask or completely changing my way of life because some jackass in a government agency makes a recommendation that they walk back later.

If I were in your position, I’d schedule a trip at least a week before you expect to take delivery. This will give them plenty of time to correct anything not to your liking. As much as you think they may help, a surveyor will never look at your boat the way you will. He will make sure the major systems function properly and the vessel is seaworthy. That’s what you pay them for. They won’t look for the minor imperfections that you will find. Your view is going to be a lot different than any others since you’re the one writing the check.

I've been wearing one since the first covid case, 3m respirator, before the government recommended them. It is common sense. The virus needs to get in your lungs to infect you.

If masks work to stop the spread, why did we have to shut everything down? If they donít work, why do they tell us to wear one? Thatís common sense. I still have yet to receive an answer to those questions after nearly 2 months of the BS. If itís so threatening, all air travel and the mail shouldíve been shut off as well and they werenít. If 2 full layers of clothing canít stop the smell of a fart, do you really believe a simple face mask or even a respirator will stop a virus? Youíve been duped my friend.

All of your responses that are marine related seem to be spot on.
After your last 2 post on the virus you should stick to those that are marine.
The first paragraph of your first one was hard to take.

Duped would imply that someone tricked me in to wearing a mask. Instead, because I understand how the virus infects people, I wear a fully sealed n100 mask that blocks the virus before the govt recommended them. We shut everything down because people don't know how to wear a mask properly and there aren't enough n95 and n100 masks available. A $5 mask or some homemade job with gaps and limited filtration is only mildly effective.

Only on THT could we turn delivery of a new 42 Yellowfin into a debate about masks and the government. I'm so sick of this virus creeping into EVERY aspect of life.

I would definitely go and check it over before it leaves the factory doors. 90% of the functions should be able to be tested and gone through. If it delays delivery a couple weeks while they address and issues it will be well worth it to have anything fixed properly. Like others have said, do not get blinded by the excitement of it all. I know that's tough, I wouldn't be able to sleep for the weeks leading up to it Id be so excited. Congrats on the boat, its going to be bad ass!

100,000 deaths in 3 months and it will almost certain double the 58,209 killed in the Vietnam- this thing is no joke.

Maybe you should stick to things you know about and let doctors and scientist advise us on viruses.

That's exactly how this guy thought - until he and his wife caught Covid.

A Florida man who thought the coronavirus was "a fake crisis" has changed his mind after he and his wife contracted COVID-19. Brian Hitchens, a rideshare driver who lives in Jupiter, downplayed the seriousness of the coronavirus in Facebook posts in March and April.

In a lengthy post on May 12, Hitchens said that he was once among those who thought the coronavirus "is a fake crisis" that was "blown out of proportion" and "wasn't that serious."

That changed when he started to feel sick in April and stopped working, he wrote.

Hitchens said he "had just enough energy" to drive himself and his wife to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center on April 19, where they both tested positive for the virus. He's been in the hospital for three weeks, and that he still had COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. He also said he had pneumonia in his lungs.

"As of today my wife is still sedated and on the ventilator with no signs of improving," Hitchens wrote. This time, he said, "I have come to accept that my wife may pass away."

"This thing is nothing to be messed with please listen to the authorities and heed the advice of the experts," he wrote.


"Looking back I should have wore a mask in the beginning but I didn't and perhaps I'm paying the price for it now," he wrote. If he passed the virus on to his wife, he said, he knows that she and God forgive him.

"So just think about what I said and if you have to go out please use wisdom and don't be foolish like I was ... so the same thing won't happen to you like it happened to me and my wife," he wrote.

Your extreme ignorance not only risks the life of you and your family but also threatens health care workers who willingly put their very lives on the line to care for you or your child should you become ill.

Ever think about them or are you that selfish you simply don't care about anyone else ?
