Weather Models

The below website is just one of many used by Top Yacht Delivery to best determine a suitable weather window for the delivery of your boat.

This site for weather modeling is one of the best tools as it gives winds of 10mt above sea level, making it more accurate.

To change Ventusky units, simply head to setting and go to bottom right and select appropriate settings.

the weather models

Top Yacht Delivery utilizes a wide range of online weather modelling tools, to determine the future weather patterns and conditions for the duration of the delivery passage, plus currents and tidal information.

Below are some of the other links you can utilize to see the weather during the delivery of your vessel.

Seabreeze is a local live wind predictor and a forecast tool a classic for coastal deliveries, gives other weather information such as basic tides and Barometer pressure, wave heights & direction. We use this one for wind changes, or wind increase or decrease with this we can determine exactly what the plan will be immediately.


Our second choice and the one insurance companies (in Australia) will look at is the familiar Bureau of Meteorology, we use the marine ocean forecast areas for our delivery passage, this is broadcast on VHF radio if out of range. It gives a three day forecast.

This is the true dictator of our progress for deliveries it a good forecasting tool, we use this one every day prior and during the delivery.


Windy is another weather predicting modeling online, this is similar to the Ventusky above. Windy, give sound forecasts but it displays weather there are three different models one is ECMWF European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, GFS Global Weather Forecast and ICON, we use it in conjunction with with Seabreeze and Ventusky comparing the information.


Predict Wind, a free app or subscribe to, awesome for live animated wind predictions comparison of many weather models, the wave prediction is handy and I have found to be accurate, wind and other features are good, and we use it in conjunction with the other weather models.


How we go about the weather window for deliveries is take all weather models and compare each, if there's a likeness to each prediction we keep monitoring at each update.

Top Yacht Delivery provides the above in good faith, it takes no responsibility and can not be held liable for any user following the link and therefore making their decision to head to sea.
