United Yacht Transport Looks Into Still Water’s Voyage Into Cuban Waters

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., September 25, 2015 —  With the opening up of Cuba’s waters, the first U.S. Charter Yacht made its voyage to the country last month. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, takes a look into the expedition and its impact on the yachting community.

Superyacht Numarine 78 Flybridge M/Y Still Water was the first American charter yacht to sail into the waters of Cuba. The last time this was legal was in the early 1960’s, prior to the trade embargo being imposed. Still Water cruised into the Marina Hemingway in Havana loaded with 15 people, including both crew and passengers.

The entire process to be granted the ability to carry out this voyage still took approximately 7 months. The trip, however, only took about 4 hours to travel from Key West, Florida to Cuba. It is anticipated that being granted permission for Cuban voyages may be facilitated now that the U.S. Embassy officially opened in Havana on August 14th.

The opening up of Cuba’s waters provides more travel opportunities for yachters, which leads to more business for yacht transport companies. There is an anticipated rise in transports to Cuba in the coming years, and travelers can look forward to experiencing a beautiful country that is rich in history and culture.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sep. 18, 2015 — Trinity Yachts’ superyacht Skyfall, released in 2010, continues to make headlines as it goes up on the market. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, takes a look inside the walls of this beautifully crafted and exquisite vessel.

John Staluppi’s yacht Skyfall is now being sold by Worth Avenue and International Yacht Collection. Staluppi, also known as the “James Bond yacht flipper,” has owned 18 vessels that he has redone, each named after a Bond film.

This revamped yacht comes with a price tag of $35 million for a multitude of reasons. Equipped with a master suite, study, lounge, master bathroom, saloon, theater, 2 VIP suites, 7 guest cabins, and a formal dining area that accommodates 14 people, spaciousness is not an issue for Skyfall.

United Yacht Transport Talks Top 3 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Yacht Transport Company

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept.  2, 2015 — Choosing the best yacht transport company is crucial in the safe and secure transfer of your vessel from point A to point B. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, discusses a few factors all yacht owners should consider when looking for a reliable transport company.

 

  1. Transport options. The size of your vessel determines how it can be transported. Small yachts are equipped for road transport, while larger yachts can be transported on a container vessel or by a carrying company. Contracting with an exclusive yacht carrier that specializes transports of this size is extremely beneficial, as you are handing over your vessel to a company that encompasses an expert and highly qualified staff.
  2. Pricing. While going with the company that offers you the lowest price for its service may seem like the best option, it may not always work out in your favor. Transport companies may try to lure in business with low prices, but not be able to follow through. Seek companies who strive to develop long-term relationships through reliable service, and avoid those who are just looking for a one-time transaction.
  3. Delivery and cancellations. Make sure that your yacht transporter provides you with a reasonable window of time for delivery. While it is unfeasible to provide an accurate arrival date due to uncontrollable conditions, an acceptable window of time should always be laid out in the agreement. However, assure that your yacht transport provider clearly defines a cancellation date in the contract. Non-performance warrants a cancellation, and you should make sure you are covered in the event of an substantial delay in transport.

United Yacht Transport Discusses Lawful Threat to Superyachts

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 17, 2015 — As the size of yachts seems to be multiplying as each new superyacht makes its debut, existing laws are creating a problem for these massive vessels due to their colossal length. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, reflects on the current situation, and what it could mean for owners, captains, and the community of Fort Lauderdale.

The law currently states that once yachts exceed a certain length, both owners and captains need to acquire a different type of license to possess and operate them. International rule states that if a superyacht surpasses 3,000 gross tons, it is no longer identified as a pleasure boat and is considered a commercial vessel.

A major problem is that captains would have to essentially start their careers from the bottom and put in enough hours to receive a separate license. The Maritime Professional Training School has set up a course in an effort to alleviate this problem. The course seems to be worth the time and money, as it adds you to the comparably shorter list of candidates when yacht owners are seeking captains for their superyachts.

Not only does this law affect owners and captains, but also the community of Fort Lauderdale. This Florida city has been deemed the “yachting capital of the world,” since there is so much transport and tourism in that area.

United Yacht Transport Discusses Washington’s Potential Tax Break for Yacht Owners

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 22, 2015 — The Washington House of Representatives has just passed the Marine Tourism Bill and yacht owners anxiously await final approval from Governor Jay Inslee. The bill declares that superyachts will be allowed to dock in state waters for a total of 180 days before a tax is levied. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat shipping, discusses the impact this new law will have on the yachting community.

After 4 years in the making, superyachts registered as an LLC are finally allowed to stay in Washington waters tax-free for approximately a 6-month period of time (a superyacht is typically considered to be a vessel greater than 79 feet in length). While this has never been a problem for smaller boats, as they were already granted this lengthy waiver, this ruling is making waves in the yachting community.

In the past, superyachts were granted a 60 day leeway prior to being taxed 10% of the vessel’s worth. This new regulation permits triple the time in an attempt to extend a warm welcome for yacht owners to inhabit Washington’s waters. The law will apply not only to yachts built in Washington, but also to those that are simply visiting.

As of last month, Florida maintained the advantage in terms of giving a tax break to yacht owners. Paul Haber, president of United Yacht Transport, says “It’s nice to see other states being a bit more flexible in terms of yacht taxes. I believe that the tax break in Florida is one of the driving forces behind a yacht owner’s decision to travel to and stay here for longer periods of time. It has brought great business to us and creates a sense of community amongst yacht owners and the state.” The new law will become effective on September 1, 2015, if approved by the Washington state governor.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 16, 2015 —In order to meet the higher than expected demand, United Yacht Transport plans to add more North American and Mediterranean sailings for fall 2015. The company ships to several destinations worldwide year-round.

In 2015, United Yacht Transport has become the North American leader in boat transport. The Fort Lauderdale based shipping service has shipped more boats and run more sailings between the east and west coast of North America than any other carrier in the past year. Its reliable, year-round sailings and impeccable safety record keeps its clients coming back, which has caused a dramatic increase in demand for the fall.

Paul Haber, President of United Yacht Transport, anticipates an increase in demand not only for the fall, but also for the upcoming year. “Yachting is a small community, and brokers, owners, and captains continually refer business to us because they know their yachts are in good hands,” said Haber.

United Yacht Transport is the premier worldwide yacht transporter and offers cost effective yacht transport and  vessel shipping services. United Yacht Transport ships worldwide to Mexico, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Asia and the Mediterranean. As the North American leader in yacht transportation, United Yacht Transport prides itself on reliability, safe transport, and unparalleled customer service.

United Yacht Transport Takes You Inside the World’s Most Expensive and Extravagant Mega-Yacht

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 16, 2015 — The Italian Sea Group is currently in the process of developing the “world’s largest and most expensive yacht,” the Admiral X Force 145. United Yacht Transport takes you inside the lavish and luxurious vessel that has an anticipated completion date at the end of this year.

Admiral X Force 145 is the epitome of opulence. Measuring an impressive 476 feet in length, the vessel is deemed the largest private watercraft ever made–that is, if it is manufactured before 722-foot Triple Deuce set to debut in Spring 2018. The size of the massive ship can be compared to that of ten buses, two jumbo jets, or one-and-a-half football fields lined up lengthwise.

Within the lavish walls, Admiral is fully equipped with pools, movie theaters, gyms, a garage, and a bi-level beach club and spa. Admiral takes the word luxury to new heights, comprised of suites donned with crystal chandeliers and marble flooring. Rooms are flooded with natural light that beams through a multitude of floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, and balconies. Upon nightfall, the perimeter of the boat is lined with lights that illuminate the ship and its surroundings.

While the Italian Sea Group is known for its mega-yachts, producing six yachts in the span of four months last year, this endeavor is record breaking. The curved, sleek lines on both the inside and outside of the vessel exude modernity and opulence. With an estimated price point in the billions, there are only a handful of yachters that are likely to place a bid.

United Yacht Transport is the premier worldwide yacht transporter and offers cost effective yacht transport and boat shipping services. United Yacht Transport ships worldwide to Mexico, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Asia and the Mediterranean. As the North American leader in yacht transportation, United Yacht Transport prides itself on reliability, safe transport, and unparalleled customer service.
