  1. Dockwise books the most valued superyacht ever transported

    As the seasonal migration of superyachts begins in late August from the Mediterranean to the wintertime cruising grounds of the Caribbean and South Florida, Dockwise Yacht Transport, operating for 26 years in the yacht transport industry, is gearing up for a busy season.

    ​Recent bookings include the most valued superyacht the experienced company has ever transported, the new 214-foot m/y Galactica Star, built by Heesen, which has booked a round trip from Genoa, Italy to Martinique this fall and from Port Everglades back to Genoa in spring 2014. While Dockwise has the capability to ship yachts from 30 feet to more than 200 feet, it regularly ships those in the 120-foot to 165-foot range, mainly to and from the Mediterranean.

    There are two ways for a yacht to make its way across an ocean: on its own keel or docked safely aboard a transport vessel. The expense of having a yacht shipped by a qualified yacht transporter typically is outweighed by the substantial insurance requirements and costly wear and tear of a long sea journey. Dockwise is the only yacht transport company with semisubmersible ships, also known as float on float off, a method that is much less stressful on yachts than being hoisted by crane. In addition, these unique yacht carriers are equipped with 14.1 meter (46.25 feet) dock walls which protect the yachts from the elements while underway.
