That depends of where they are going, what range the vessel has, the sea state they encounter and of course how fast the vessel is. The big yachts cross faster as they can sustain a 17-19-knot speed for far longer given the huge tanks of fuel that carry. Could be about 9 to 10 days minimum depending on what I said before.

A few more of the supply tender GARCON.
I like this boat.
Me too, especially after all the soot has been cleaned off of her hull!
What is up with so much soot?
Someone needs to read YachtForums.Com and more specifically:

Thanks Old Phart, I read it all with great interest and can only hope the folks on said vessel do to.
It really saddens me to see wonderful yachts tarnished with exhaust soot and am so glad that there is a viable solution to the problem.
I love this forum, ask and you shall recieve!
I think that the soot you're seeing on Garcon's topsides is from her main engine exhausts. I suppose they utilised the same exhaust system as on their offshore vessels, which means the exhaust doesn't go underwater at speed, as is common on most yachts, but directly overboard.
Allthough there are soot filters available such as the Nauticlean from Hug or the Puregen from Halyard, realistically they are only ever used on the generator exhausts in yachts. For high-HP main engines (as used on yachts like these), their size is usually prohibitive.
That said, the technology is being used more and more on inland-waterway vessels here in Holland, but there, the available space in relation to horsepower is usually more.
For a displacement yacht, it could be considered. For a faster vessel - such as Garcon - I don't think it's a realistic option, unless you take the size requirements into account from the very beginning.
What's puzzling to me, is that the soot is only on the starboard side and there is none on the portside, even though there is cooling water coming out.
I think it is both sides, check photo 4 and 5 in post 1250.
