    Demand for Yacht Transport Grows in South Pacific

    Super Servant 3, 456 feet (139 meters) in length and operating on a regular schedule to deliver yachts around the world, will look something like a giant moving marina when it comes to town. By “sinking” its dock bay, it will safely float off its cargo of yachts. Captains, owners and crew members will be aboard the vessels during disembarkment, ready to take them by their own power on to new adventures.

    It’s an amazing process,” said Roberts, “and no other shipping company has this ability to deliver boats in such a manner.” Nevertheless, for clients who want a more flexible boat transport schedule or those who want to explore destinations where the float-on/float-off ships aren’t scheduled to go, Roberts says DYT orchestrates lift-on/lift-off arrangements with third-party carriers.

    “With both services combined, we have created a very strong DYT yacht logistics product that is being utilized by many yacht owners and manufacturers and continues to be a leader in the market,” said Roberts.

    The yacht shipping vessel, Super Servant 3, departed Port Everglades in early December, 2010, and will have made stops in St. Thomas (USVI), Golfito (Costa Rica) and Papeete (French Polynesia) before arriving in Brisbane. From Brisbane, it will head to Auckland and return to Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) in late February, via Ensenada (Mexico).

    DYT’s second South Pacific “float-on/float-off” yacht transport voyage of the year will begin in Port Everglades in early July, with stops in Golfito (early/mid July), Brisbane (early August), Auckland (mid August), and head back via Ensenada (mid September) to Port Everglades (early October) in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

    This particular voyage is ideal for those who want to attend the Rugby World Cup which takes place in Wellington, New Zealand, in August, 2011.

    In addition, DYT has scheduled these new voyages via the lift-on, lift-off method:

    Loading in March and April, 2011: Antwerp (Belgium) or Rotterdam (The Netherlands) to Genoa (Italy), then to Brisbane (Australia) and Wellington (New Zealand)

    Loading in May and June, 2011:
    North Adriatic to Augusta and Brisbane (Australia) and Wellington (New Zealand)

    Loading in May, 2011:
    Phuket (Thailand) to Genoa (Italy)
