Meet The Crew

Offering CAPTAIN SUPPORT SERVICES, Tim Leachman, a native Californian of Newport Beach and Santa Barbara, has been sailing yachts and operating commercial vessels for over 38 years. After a year cruising Mexico and Central America, he arrived in Costa Rica aboard his sailboat "Caribbee" with Katie, his 'first mate', in 1993. Falling in love with the area he decided to put the anchor down indefinitely, establishing Land Sea Services.
Based out of LAND SEA SERVICES in Golfito Bay, Costa Rica, Tim is available for YACHT MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS for foreign flagged vessels. He can keep a watch on your vessel while you do some inland travel. He's a good resource on cruising anchorages and routes too as he's put in plenty of sea miles making deliveries via Florida through the Panama Canal to California. This past 2 decades Tim made not only coast to coast passages including more than a dozen canal transits- He's completed deliveries to Mexico, United States, Tahiti, Tonga and several Central and South American ports too.

Yacht Path Float-On Yacht Transport

Fast, flexible and flawless large yacht transporting

Every detail checked, then checked again. Last year we moved 300 yachts from one ocean to the other. This is only the result of deliberate and thoughtful planning. Every vessel is carefully inspected and measured before being lifted aboard, and our crews follow a rigorous, well practiced operating procedure. To leave nothing to chance, we naturally check and recheck every clasp, latch, strap, safety tie and restraining line. Then we check them all again. This may take a little longer, and cost us a little more, but it is time and effort well Yspent to protect your yacht.

Yacht Path International is an exclusive yacht transportation company specializing in worldwide yacht relocation. With the use of over 80 self-sustained heavy-lift cargo ships, we are able to offer frequent and convenient sailings year ’round. Through the use of modern, heavy-lift cargo ships and state of the art semi-submersible vessels, we can quickly and safely transport mega yachts to nearly any location.

Yacht Path's philosophy is simple. They deliver your yacht quickly and safely to the destination you select. Whatever they can do to make this as easy as possible for you, they do. In fact, they plan for weeks and months to ensure a fully uneventful trip for your vessel. By carefully focusing on the myriad of details involved, they methodically root out and eliminate any chance for uncertainty or mishap. This of course keeps them up at night, but you gain peace of mind in knowing your craft is in the best hands on the water. In their view, there is no simpler way to move a yacht from one ocean to another than by boat. Expertly placing your yacht aboardship our transport vessel suggests common sense and a sensible way of doing business. You as the owner do not run up needless engine hours, ocean wear on your vessel, or the not inconsiderable cost of captain and crew wages. Perhaps most importantly, we conserve your valuable time.

Land Sea Captain Support Services may be able to assist. We have received boats from Yachpath for the owners who were not able to arrive in port on schedule, mooring and maintaining the vessel safely until the captain could arrive. We have accepted cruisers vessels for boat sitting and loading when owners were on "touch and go", with just enough time to get the vessel checked into port before they had to catch their international flight out.....
