Jeffry Matzdorff lives in Marina Del Rey, California, and is available for hire as a delivery Captain, personalized boating consultant and/or sailing instructor. He has over 45 years of yachting experience, both sail and power. Jeffry’s knowledge in boat preparation is outstanding. His knowledge of electronics, engines, boat systems and provisioning has been an asset to both experienced and new boat owners alike.

Go With Experience - Why choose me

I own a 41 foot sailboat, and I have a great deal of respect for any boat I am fortunate to be aboard. For me, it's all about hiring the right Captain to deliver your boat.  I am pleased to send you my sailing C/V with over 162,000 nm blue water miles experience, as well as my references which I encourage you to check. 

I grew up in an era when it was necessary to navigate our position without GPS and determine set/drift and course while underway. I am old school and can navigate quickly and efficiently using paper charts, parallel ruler and dividers.  I am also very proficient with all the latest navigational aids including Radar, GPS, Chart plotters, AIS, Sat phones, Online navigational aids and weather forecasts models. I generally provide online real time delivery progress for owners and their family/friends using the latest available technology to keep all those interested in the delivery informed.


See my Adventure Logs page for example tracks on how I deliver a boat and capture the delivery progress online.

I believe that boat preparation is key to a successful delivery. Both boat, crew, provisioning and the boats electronics and subsystems should be inspected and in good working order.

I believe that the Captain, crew and owner should be able to trust and depend on each other as well as get along. Safety and a secure passage are paramount to me. Having fun and enjoying the experience is what keeps me coming back for another passage.

I am easy going both on and off the water but I take my deliveries seriously and do not believe that a professionally hired Captain or crew should drink while delivering a boat with the exception of perhaps something to go with dinner. Party activities are best saved for after the delivery. I am a non smoker for those sailors who would want to know but not offended by those sailors that do smoke.
