Cross-Border Yacht Delivery Made Easy

Partnership Announcement


Executive Yacht & JTA Yacht Delivery


Executive Yacht continues to identify innovative approaches to partnerships that enable our clients to the ultimate, worry-free experiences onboard. We are excited to announce that Executive Yacht and JTA Yacht Delivery & Consulting have joined forces to further establish the Great Lakes as a new destination for high-end yachting.


With the ever-expanding footprint of larger, more luxurious yachts traveling farther and exploring new areas, such as the Great Lakes, Executive Yacht appointed JTA Yacht Delivery & Consulting as their official Corporate Delivery Captain, to provide their discerning clientele with a delivery experience at the highest standards.

  “The ever-changing COVID-19 rules for the US / Canadian border has played heavily into the ability for yachts to travel to and from Canada and the US.  JTA Yacht Delivery & Consulting has been performing cross-border transports all year long without any delay or holdup. We are delighted to have teamed up with a reliable and trusted partner who will go at great lengths to ensure a smooth, safe and timely delivery at all circumstances,” commented Derek Mader CEO of Executive Yacht.

Prime Yacht Delivery Service

Executive Yacht and JTA Yacht Delivery & Consulting first worked together on a client’s new 2020 62’ Pershing that was located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and needed to arrive to the Great Lakes for the operating season, during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the Canadian borders closed, as well as the Erie Canal, and the risks associated with bringing the yacht up the Mississippi River, JTA was contracted to oversee the final closing of the Yacht in Florida as well as loading onto the ship and off the ship once it reached the Great Lakes.

Working with Derek Mader and the Executive Yacht team has been a tremendous experience for me and JTA Yacht Delivery. I am always reassured that any support I need, from the brokerage or the shipyard standpoint, is taken care of.  Our teams work very well together, as we both seek the best experience possible for our client through our professionalism and attention to detail”, said Captain Jordan Tilton, owner, and operator of JTA Yacht Delivery & Consulting.
