Did it come from the US, whats the name of it? I recently loaded a couple on this end on a freighter. If anything, turn the battery switches on, should be under the staircase going to the flybridge. Generally you shouldn't have to prime the sea strainers, generator, a/c, or engines just make sure the seacocks are open (usually they are left open). I would get the generator running first, turn the battery charger on and let it start charging the batteries, make sure fuel valves are open, start main engines and let them warm up. I would get all of the air conditioners going at like 70 degrees to pull any humidity out of the boat when you run it to the dock. Check all of your other systems before departing such as steering.
