Triton Networking with United Yacht Transport

Categories:

Join us for Triton Networkingon the third Wednesday in June in Fort Lauderdale with United Yacht Transport. All captains, crew and industry professionals are welcome to join us from 6-8 p.m. on June 21 — the first day of summer — to catch up with friends and make some new ones.

Until then, learn a little more about UYT from its VP Vadim Yegudkin.

Tell us about United Yacht Transport. What do you do?

 

United Yacht Transport started in 2012 and has a combined 30 years of yacht transport experience. Paul Haber is president and I am vice president. We specialize in North America and Mediterranean. Our routes touch Fort Lauderdale, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, British Columbia, Singapore, Hong Kong, St. Thomas (USVI), Spain, Italy and Greece, however there are more, based on demand.

Some transport companies charter ships, others have their own ships. How does UYT work?

We charter full ships. This method allows for much more frequent sailing as we are not limited to any number of ships or crane size. The ability to charter any ship anywhere in the world gives our customers a much more reliable and regular sailing schedule.

There are several companies that provide this sort of service. What makes you different?

United is a carrier with its own cradling equipment and lifting gear, and the highest safety rating in the industry. Our loadmasters are the top in the world. We also provide the best insurance policy in the business.

You had an interesting loading last month in Fort Lauderdale. Tell us about it.

We loaded several large yachts on the M/V Industrial Guide, including the loading of the 151-foot Leopard under deck. This is an example of our ability to charter full ships. This is important, because this means that the only cargo on the ship is yachts. It also gives us full control of the ship and stow plan. Our operations team is then able to fill the belly of the ship with yachts as tall as 40 feet and put taller yachts and sailboats on deck. Bigger loads means lower costs, and we always pass along these savings to the customers. Economy of scales.

The biggest yacht we loaded on the Industrial Guide was the 174-foot, 650-ton expedition yacht M/Y Ulucitcan. This was verified as the heaviest yacht to be lifted by any company in over five years. Great job by our top notch loading team.

All in all, the Industrial Guide will take over $250 million and 4,000 square meters of yachts to the Med.

What advice do you give captains and crew before they deliver their yacht to UYT?

Follow our preparation guide, which is available on our new website launching this month, and check your emails every day for the latest updates on loading and discharge times.

Are delivery schedules established or do they fluctuate from year to year?

This is a good question. There are sailings based on season, boat shows and some that are based on demand. For example, there are always sailings from the Med and West Coast in time for the Fort Lauderdale boat show the fall. There are always seasonal sailings to the Pacific Northwest and Mediterranean in March, April and May, and return voyages in September, October and November.

I always suggest to the captain or whomever deals with the transport (sometimes the chief engineer) to call me in advance and secure the space as soon as the owners have made their decision.

Triton Networking always brings the best crowds, and we are looking forward to seeing all our friends and meeting new people.

We will gather at The Triton office at 1043 SE 17th St. (33316).

For more information about United Yacht Transport, visit united-yacht.com, contact the company at +1 954-383-4448 or sales@united-yacht.com, stop by the office at 2830 Marina Mile Blvd., Suite 118, in Fort Lauderdale (33312), or join us at Triton Networking on the third Wednesday in June from 6-8 p.m. for casual and professional networking.

Newcastle Marine explorer yacht Ulucitcan heads to Europe

Categories:

The in-build 54 metre Newcastle Marine explorer yacht Ulucitcan (ex-Chuggaboom) has been pictured leaving Florida, bound for Genoa.

The first details of this project were revealed in 2011, but construction was put on hold when Newcastle Marine ran into financial difficulties. However, these new images suggest that a new European build partner has been found to complete the job.

Shipping firm United Yacht Transport described the 650-tonne Ulucitcan as “the heaviest yacht any carrier has deck-loaded in years”.

This four-deck explorer yacht was developed in collaboration with Dutch naval architecture firm Vripack, while British studio Winch has designed an interior that has been described as “luxurious and well-balanced”, as well as the exterior deck spaces.

Speaking back in 2012, Marnix Hoekstra from Vripack described the design as “a man’s boat – chunky, rigid and really able to withstand the elements”.

The superstructure was designed around the owner’s tastes, Hoekstra added: “Typically we’d have the superyacht wheelhouse two steps elevated, compared to the top deck. This time the owner refused it, because he wanted a container shape, so very flat topped.”

Another unusual feature of this explorer yacht is the workshop and storage space for five or six motorbikes on the main deck, which opens onto the boat deck. This would allow for easy loading and unloading — ideal for on-shore exploration.

Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Ulucitcan features a twin-screw diesel propulsion system that should allow for efficient long-range cruising at 12 knots.

UYT loads in Everglades

May 18 – United Yacht Transport (UYT) has loaded 19 yachts on board Intermarine’s heavy lift vessel Industrial Guide in Port Everglades, USA.

heavyliftpfi.com – News Desk

Thursday 18 May 2017

The 174 ft (53 m) Expedition yacht, named Ulucitcan, was the heaviest vessel to be loaded, weighing 650 tonnes.

The 19 yachts, which included a 151 ft (46 m) Leopard and a 130 ft (39.6 m) Mangusta, were loaded above and below deck, filling the entire ship with over USD200 million worth of yachts, says UYT.

Paul Haber, UYT president, explained:  “The most challenging part was the extensive logistics and pre-planning that needed to be done well in advance of the ship arriving in Port Everglades.

Our operations team designed a customised lifting plan to not only load the 174 ft (53 m) Expedition, but to also load it in such a way to allow for the other boats to be loaded on deck and in the hold.”

The yachts were loaded utilising the ship’s 700-tonne capacity cranes and will be transported to Genoa in Italy.   SOURCE: HLPFI

Yacht transport is big business at Port Everglades

Categories:

As the captain of a 130-foot yacht, Christopher Campbell usually spends his time at the steering wheel.

But one day last week, he walked the deck of a massive freighter at Port Everglades, waiting for his boss’ yacht to be lifted out of the water and fastened down for a long-distance voyage as cargo.

The boat was one of 27 carefully loaded on top of the nearly 525-foot-long Tong An Cheng freighter for shipment from Fort Lauderdale to the west coast of the U.S. and to Canada.

The price tag for the shipment to Vancouver: About $180,000.

Yacht transport is big business in Fort Lauderdale, an area dubbed the yachting capital of the world. Hundreds of the sleek boats are shipped in and out of Port Everglades yearly on hulking freighters.

Some yachts are shipped in for the area’s international boat shows, where they are displayed for sale and charter. Others come for repair and maintenance between summers in Europe and winters in the Caribbean. And some head out for delivery to owners who bought the boats in South Florida, the country’s leading market for yacht sales.

The business is so big that former New York investment banker Paul Haber set up a company in 2013 in Fort Lauderdale to specialize in just one niche: transport around North America.

Haber said his business, United Yacht Transport, moved about 300 yachts last year and expects to handle even more deliveries this year. The shipment of 27 yachts was his biggest, he said.

But why piggyback yachts on a freighter when they could sail on their own?

Operating yachts across long distances costs a lot more, Campbell said. “To run this yacht from here to Vancouver — with fuel, maintenance, repairs and crew — you’d be talking well over half-a-million dollars,” Campbell said. Fuel alone could cost more than $200,000.

Running a yacht full-out for weeks also causes added wear and tear. And self-powered trips take longer and leave more room for problems.

“Nothing ever goes smoothly” on a long yacht trip, the 32-year-old engineer said. “It’s a floating city.”

The crew also would be spent, running the yacht hard for more than three weeks to Vancouver, sometimes in rough seas.

“Heading up the West Coast is very difficult. There’s no shelter. You’re in open water. It’s pretty miserable, to be honest,” Campbell said.

Loading a yacht onto a freighter for a voyage like that is no small job.

Haber’s company uses a huge crane with an arm carrying a giant sling. The sling is placed under the yacht, and the crane hoists the yacht out of the water and carries it above the deck of the freighter.

Steel columns then are adjusted upward from the deck to meet the yacht, their wooden tops forming a cradle to hold the yacht in place. The columns next are welded into the decks to keep the yacht stable. And giant straps then are pulled over the boat to fasten it down, sometimes with chains attached for extra security.

The process takes time. Campbell expected that loading his yacht would take about 24 hours, with crews working around-the-clock welding down the steel columns onto the deck.

Haber’s company mainly transports yachts in the 50- to 80-foot range, with perhaps 30 percent of his business for yachts 100 feet or longer. His biggest shipment to date is a 151-footer.

Yachts much bigger than that are tough to lift in a sling and often are loaded onto semi-submersible freighters instead.

The world’s biggest yacht transporter, Sevenstar Yacht Transport in the Netherlands, owns some of those submersibles. It hauls lots of yachts between Europe and the Americas, the largest segment of the transport market, Haber said.

Haber said he chose to focus on the less-contested North American market. His company doesn’t own freighters and rents deck space when needed. He aims to be the “low-cost” provider for yacht transport, so he can fill up the deck and leave no space empty.

Most of his company’s deliveries are headed west from Port Everglades, like the 130-foot Oceanfast yacht that Campbell’s boss bought in Fort Lauderdale and was sending to his home in Vancouver.

“Yachts in Fort Lauderdale happen to be about 25 percent cheaper than a similar boat in Seattle, because you have more boats here,” Haber said. That leaves opportunity to transport the yachts as cargo to the Pacific Coast.

Know About the Company that is Transporting Your Yacht.

Before choosing the company for your yacht transportation, you should know a little about them. First of all, ask them if they have all of the proper licensing required by the appropriate authorities. If you are in doubt of their licensing, you can always check out their company at the SAFER website to ensure that they are indeed licensed properly. Next, ask them about their insurance. Of course, you will have your own insurance policy but if you don’t have a policy that covers transport damages, the cost of damage may come out of your pocket. Also, ask if they have a tracking system on the cargo ship. This way you can monitor the transportation progress. And above all, ask for references. Word of mouth is typically a credible way to get information. You can also read independent reviews online. Remember to get an estimate! Don’t choose a company with all of those hidden costs. Ask for an upfront cost and make sure that the company sticks with it. Lastly, ask the company if there is anything that you need to personally do to prepare for the transfer of your boat.

Four Yacht Amenities You Don’t Want To Live Without

Categories:

When it comes to yachts, luxury is the keyword you want to be looking for. Yachts come with all sorts of amenities that you can enjoy, but how can you work out which ones are essential and which ones are less than ideal? Here are the four modern yacht amenities that you don’t want to be without on your travels on the water.

1. Sun Pads

Yachts have long been the perfect place to lay out and work on your tan. They’re fairly private, relaxing, and offer amazing views when you sail out to open waters. What can be better than grabbing a drink and the new novel you’ve been reading, and laying out in the sun?

Yacht builders know this, and so they create dedicated sunbathing spots on modern yachts. Known as sun pads, they allow sun worshippers the best spot on the boat to relax and unwind, all while taking in some rays. They’re actually a fantastic way of utilizing lost space on your yacht, so they’re well worth looking into.

2. Swimming Pools

It’s not been unusual to see a paddling pool on a yacht, but more manufacturers have been leaning into the swimming pool scene, adding full swimming pools to their models. Some are large enough for you to swim laps in, and comes with water jets to enable to swim in one place. These are designed for training, so if you’re serious about swimming you’re going to want one of these.

There are a few reasons why you’d want a swimming pool on board your yacht. First of all, it’s a lot safer, especially if you have children on board. Those on the ship can get a swim in safely, without having to worry about other boats, or the wildlife living in the ocean. Often, it’s cleaner too. If you’re thinking of using boat transport though, remember you’ll need to drain the pool before you move the yacht.

3. Fully Equipped Kitchens

Gone are the days of packed lunches in a cooler on the boat. You no longer have to stick to sandwiches, as yachts are now coming with fully installed kitchens on board. You can bring delicious healthy food with you on any trip, meaning you can get all the nutrients you need without having to compromise.

Those who love their gourmet food won’t have to go without, either. Many yacht owners are hiring chefs to handle the cooking for them, leaving them to relax and enjoy their cruise. There’s nothing better than having a freshly cooked meal ready for you when you’re on your boat. You’ve got to try it for yourself.

4. Spas

If you’re on your yacht, you’re in for a day of relaxation and pampering. Why not go the whole hog and get a yacht with spa equipment? You’ll be aware of yachts that come with hot tubs, that allow you to soak while you’re out at sea. This is tempting as it is, but there’s so much more you can have.

For example, more yachts now are coming fitted with saunas. These are often a separate room in the cabin but can be attached to the master bedroom. It’s a great way to soothe aching muscles and cleanse your pores while you’re taking a day out to chill out on your boat.

Some yachts are now even coming with their own gymnasiums and massage centers, perfect for those who want to get a good workout wherever they are, and those who need some care and attention. You can hire a masseuse to come out with you and give you a massage on your trip. There’s nothing quite like getting that massage while surrounded by open ocean and the sounds and smells that brings.

Get The Amenities You Want

There are all sorts of amenities available to you as a yacht owner. It’s time to think about what you really want from your boat and enjoy your sailing trips to the fullest. Think about whether you’ll use them, whether they’ll be an issue when booking yacht transport, and whether you’ll enjoy them when you’re out at sea. You can custom build your yacht so it has the amenities you want when you want them.

 

Yacht Transportation: How To Plan The Ultimate Retirement At Sea

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Some folks eagerly wait for the day they can retire and have all the freedom they wished they could have had as a younger adult, but for some, it means leaving a job they love or stepping into an unknown season of life. Some jump right into retirement while others slowly wade in, testing the waters, unsure of how this new lifestyle suits them.

Retirement. It means something different to each person. For some people, retirement means sitting on the front porch watching the grandchildren play in the yard, for others it is the warm ocean breeze and the sound of the waves lapping the shore, and still others prefer the prospect of retiring to a leisurely life spent predominantly on the local golf course. Then, there are the yachters whose ultimate retirement is at sea, aboard their luxury yacht, watching the dolphins and gazing at the sunset.

So how does one plan for such an extravagant retirement? First, make sure you are financially prepared for such a big step and that your expected lifestyle does not exceed your budget. Factor in your necessities and your wants as you create a healthy financial plan. How will you handle any unexpected costs that arise with the boat or otherwise? If any health issues come up, how will they be covered? Remember, too, that if you are on Social Security, you will have to pay a fair amount of taxes.

Once you have your budget laid out, you will want to find the perfect boat to sail away into the sunset. If you already have your yacht, however, then begin to plan your excursion. Where is your destination and how will get where you are going? If you need your yacht transported to kick off your retirement voyage, you are in luck. Contact the UYTC and ask about their low yacht transportation rates!

How Does Yacht Transport Work?

Categories:

Using a premier yacht carrier to transport your vessel to your next vacation destination is a great way to save it from wear and tear and give yourself, workers or anyone else a vacation of their own. United Yacht is the premier worldwide yacht transporter and offers cost-effective yacht transport and boat shipping services. We transport vessels from one location to another worldwide to the Caribbean, Mexico, Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean.

We’re committed to offering each customer reliable, adequate and hassle-free yacht transportation. If you’ve never utilized our services before, there are few things you need to know in order to properly prepare your boat for transport. United Yacht explains why they’re ahead of the rest of their competitors.

Why Is United Yacht Transport Better than over other transport companies?

Safe, reliable transport and unparalleled customer service have led United Yacht Transport to become the largest transporter in North America. The company has shipped more boats between the East and West Coasts of America in the last year than any other carrier. Each vessel is handled safely and securely as if it belonged to the company itself.

How does a yacht get transported?

United Yacht Transport operates through a lift on, lift off process. Prior to loading, boats are parked alongside United Yacht’s vessel. Lifting slings are lowered from the transport vessel into the water. Drivers then secure the boat to the slings using marked lifting points, and the boat is lifted into a cradle on the transport vessel. Straps and chains secure the boat in for safe and secure transport.

Preparing Your Vessel for Transport

  • When preparing your vessel for transport, it’s important to secure everything. No matter how far your boat is traveling, you should secure it as if it were crossing an ocean. Secure anything that extends beyond the hull and anything loses that could cause damage during the voyage. Secure hatches with tape to avoid leaks and possible water damage and latch all cabin windows.
  • Make sure the boat transportation company offers all-risk insurance that will adequately protect your vessel if anything should go wrong.
  • Remove all personal items from the cabin and store any breakables in a safe place. Your boat may be traveling on another boat, but it’s still going to experience the force of the ocean. Don’t forget to remove any prohibited items from your vessel’s lockers, especially if you’re going to be passing through customs.
  • Power down everything, unplug your batteries and store your cables to prevent any contact. You don’t want dead batteries when your vessel is offloaded at your destination.
  • Bring your original registry and boat keys on the date of your trip. Also, make sure you have all necessary customs paperwork if you’re going on an international voyage.
  • Inform the yacht transportation company of your vessel’s specs in advance. Make sure your measurements are accurate because they are allocating space for your boat according to the information you give them. If you’re not sure where to find this information, look in your boat’s stability book for Displacement.
  • Inspect your boat for damages and take pictures to document any that already exist. Also, if you dismantle any parts to fit size requirements or prevent them from getting damaged, be sure to take pictures of their location and set-up.
  • Protect the outside of your yacht form soot, salt, etc. with shrink wrap. If your vessel is too large to cover completely, just stick to the most vulnerable areas such as teak and non-skid surfaces. Also, cover all stainless steel and chrome fittings or apply an insulator wax to this exposed metal. If possible, remove and store the windshields.
  • If you’re transporting a sailing yacht: Remove sails or protect them with covers. All boats need to fit height requirements.

United Yacht takes important steps to ensure your vessel is all set for smooth sailing. United Yacht Transport specializes exclusively in the transportation of yachts to any worldwide destination. Through our highly skilled and experienced yacht transportation management team, both onshore and aboard our ships, we are dedicated to providing our clients with safe, efficient, and reliable boat shipping/yacht shipping solutions.

Tips for Your First Visit to Santorini, Greece

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

When it comes to choosing a vacation destination, Greece is one of the most magical, and mysterious, places on Earth. With beautiful scenery, incredible history, picturesque villages, and fantastic tourist destinations, the country of Greece, with its thousands of islands, is a must-see. Home of the first Olympics, the Parthenon, and the majestic city of Athens, there are countless things to do here.

If you venture off the mainland and plan to visit one of the islands, we suggest the island of Santorini.
This little isle is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea and was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC. This volcanic disaster has forever shaped Santorini’s rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its two principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). The houses sit incredibly close together and many are several stories high. The homes overlook the sea, small islands to the west and the island’s beaches. Interestingly, Santorini’s beaches are comprised of black, red and white lava pebbles; remnants of the volcanic eruption long ago.

How our boat shipping company can make your vacation better

Just think about how beautiful it would be to cruise across the waters of the Aegean Sea while on your vacation. Unfortunately, that is such a long trip for you to try to make across the ocean. The good news is, you can still have your boat in Santorini without risking your life driving it across the ocean. With our Yacht Transport Company, we use our carrier ships to transport boats across the ocean. Use us again to get your boat back state-side from Greece when your vacation there is over.

We use boat shipping to ship boats around the world

The United Yacht Transport Company, based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializes in transporting yachts via carrier ships across the ocean to any worldwide destination. Thus, we use boats to transport boats, going anywhere you would like us to take it. If you buy a yacht in Canada but want it shipped to you in Italy, you are in luck. Our yacht transport business has boat shipping destinations that include the East and West Coasts of North America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Asia, Costa Rica, Singapore, Greece, Hong Cong, Italy, Japan, Panama, Canada, and the Mediterranean.

How does yacht transportation work?

When you are ready to ship your yacht, contact us, explaining details and destinations. When it comes time to send your boat, the size of it will determine how it is loaded onto the transport vessel. If your boat is larger and more cumbersome, it will be placed in a trailer (or cradle, as some call it) and driven aboard the transport ship where it will be parked on the deck. If your boat is lighter, however, it can be picked up by a crane and placed onboard. From there, it will sail effortlessly across the sea, enjoying the company of other yachts, to its destination.

What sets us above our competitors?

We are proud to not only be leaders in the business but are direct carriers who provide safe, reliable and cost-effective yacht shipping services. We have shipped more boats from the East to West coasts of North America than any other carrier. With one of the lowest boat shipping costs, we handle boats ranging in size from 30 feet up to 160 feet in length!

We make certain that our customer service far outshines the rest – our slogan is: “Once you call us, we are sure you’ll call us for all your shipping needs.” Call today for a free quote or go online. Ask us about our 15% pre-booking discounts. Trust the UYT to take good care of you! We can guarantee your peace of mind, knowing that your boat will be handled gently by our trained professionals. Expect timely and efficient deliveries, and never be late again for a show.

With UYT, it is always smooth sailing! From beginning to end, we ensure that your boat will be safely handled. Go online and check out the testimonials from customers who have entrusted their boats to us.

 

Plan for Next Year’s Miami Boat Show by Booking Yacht Transport Ahead of TIme

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Boating season may be coming to a close this year but that doesn’t mean it’s over forever. Planning for next year’s boat shows, like the Miami Boat show, can help to relieve any stress or excess cost associated with attending shows like this one. Fortunately, boat-shipping costs are affordable and available for most sized boats and yachts. With all of next year’s upcoming boating events, it makes sense to transport a boat to get there on time and safely. Don’t let the cost of transportation prevent you or your boat from attending a show together.

How does it work?

Big or small, we can ship it! The shipping process starts with a free estimate of the shipping cost of a boat or yacht. A free online form, which details the size and measurements of boat or yacht help determine the cost. The port picks up and discharge dock also is included in the pricing estimate; once the sizing and measurements are confirmed and the pickup location, a final estimate is sent out. Boat owners can rest easy knowing that a team of experts is working on every end of the shipping process to ensure the cargo arrives safely. The team handles everything from paperwork, insurance, dock arrival and departure, and vehicle maintenance. A boat or yacht will arrive show ready in Miami or at any of the other six docks located around the world.

Why It’s so Affordable

The cost of shipping a boat or yacht is made affordable thanks to the well thought out and strategic shipping schedule. Shipping boats and containers are available in multiple sizes, some capable of carrying multiple vehicles at a time. This means that there are no wasted trips or extra trips. The strategic shipping schedule allows for a streamlined process and effort of delivering and picking up ships in an efficient and effective manner. No trip goes to waste thanks to their commitment to efficiency. Boat shipping costs should be affordable so money is available to spend on fun times!

Where Do We Ship?

Boating events happen all over the world on every coast. Thankfully we offer to ship and pick up docks in multiple locations all over the world. The East and West coasts of North America, The Mediterranean, Mexico, and Asia are all ports we offer yacht transport and boat shipping too. Attend the Miami Boat Show and then cruise over the pond to attend events and happenings in the Mediterranean. Cruise the shoreline of Catalina Island on the West Coast of North America and then swim in the warm waters of Mexico. We know how fun and important these events are to boat owners, which is why their shipping schedules and points are as versatile as the owners. Never miss an event again!

Who Uses this Service?

Typically, the boat shipping service is most popular during the boating event season. Whether an owner is entering their boat into a competition or merely interested in only enjoying the show, anyone is welcome to ship with them. A boat or yacht does not have to be small to ship either. Large boats and yacht owners are able to participate or attend the events happening this boating season. We welcome small and large boats and share the thrill and excitement that occurs during boating events.

Why Transporation?

It might seem counterintuitive to ship a vessel, but the purpose of boat shipping is to ensure that a boat arrives on time and in one piece. Boat transport takes care of the little and mundane things typically associated with shipping within a country and internationally. All the paperwork, insurance, and liability are taken care of when shipping a boat through their service. Essentially, shipping a boat makes new waters and coastlines accessible. Using a shipping transport service also keeps a boat and the owner safe from harm or damage that could occur if the task was taken on alone.

Make sure that next year’s boating season will be the best year ever! Starting with the Miami Boat Show. Don’t miss out on all the fun and action because of logistics or money. Call us today!

 

All about Dubrovnik, Croatia – One of the Hottest Med Destinations

The Mediterranean, especially, has many beautiful places that you may want to go to. One such place is Dubrovnik in Croatia. There are many reasons why this place is one of the hottest Mediterranean destinations.

Why you should visit Dubrovnik

George Bernard Shaw famously described Dubrovnik as “the pearl of the Adriatic.” This stunningly beautiful city includes the Old Town which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The Old Town has many beautiful sights including the well-preserved city walls that encircle the city and that you can walk along. Visiting Dubrovnik in the summer comes with the added attraction of witnessing the Dubrovnik Summer Festival with music, dance performances, and theatre. The city offers many sightseeing opportunities. You can find the Onofrio Fountain, built in 1438, the Franciscan Monastery, with one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in Europe, Rector’s Palace, which is a city museum that has many valuable and historic exhibits, the locals’ favorite meeting place, the Orlando Column, and the Jesuit Monastery to name a few.

You can also visit the Church of St. Blaise built between 1705 and 1717, and that has a silver statue of the Dubrovnik patron saint on the altar. The patron saint holds a model of the city in one hand and is brought out each year during the Festival of St. Blaise. The spectacular shoreline and views of the Old Town can be enjoyed from the cable car. The cable car service takes just a few minutes to take you to the top of Mount Srd where you can take in the beautiful views while enjoying a snack or meal at the café at the top.

And speaking of food, there are many great restaurants in the city – from the more upscale to family run- that offer an array of delicious local dishes, including the freshest seafood. After a perfect meal with some great wine, all that’s left to do is sample a kugla (scoop) of ice-cream in your favorite flavor. With museums, restaurants, and so much more to see, it may be worthwhile to purchase a Dubrovnik Card that gives you entry into many of the city’s museums, as well as allowing you to use the city’s public bus system for free.

How United Yacht can help you

If Dubrovnik seems like the kind of place you would like to spend some time in, you may think about taking your yacht there and exploring the city and its surroundings at your own pace. While transporting a yacht can seem to be a complicated process, with United Yacht Transport, it is quite simple. It is not without reason that we are leaders in the yacht transportation business. Considerations such as customs clearance, measurements, insurance, loading/unloading charges, and more can easily and smoothly be taken care of by our experienced and professional team to provide you with the most stress-free boat transport experience.

Mediterranean Destinations You Need to See in your Lifetime

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

For Americans, a vacation often means a trip to the Gulf of Mexico or perhaps the west coast, but let’s be clear: while America does have some pretty cool vacation destinations, some of the spots you’re going to find in the Mediterranean really do a great job of dwarfing it, hands down. In fact, most Europeans find themselves heading to the Med for their vacation, and with good reason. Today we’re going to go over a few of the destinations you should see within your lifetime, and if you find yourself thirsting for a bit of travel once we’re done, then congratulations, our yacht transport service can make sure that you get there in style. You might not find your next vacation destination on the list, but you can definitely keep a few of these in mind.

Yacht Transport to Majorca Spain

This is without a doubt one of the most popular Spanish islands, and if you’re looking for a quiet beach to relax on, you might be a bit out of luck here. It does have pristine beaches, unlike anything you would ever see in the United States, but it also has an extremely active nightlife. This was a very popular destination from the 19th century onward, and it’s also been the home to more than a few famous artists, including Agatha Christie. All in all, it has plenty of activities and it’s steeped in culture, making it a great place for anyone to visit. Most importantly, it’s a great place to visit all year round.

Navagio Beach, Zakynthos, Greece

If you’re looking for a famous beach to visit then you’ve found it. You know all of those pictures of beaches with crystal clear waters that you would swear don’t’ actually exist? Well, they do here, and this place is really like something out of a fantasy. It’s set in an area surrounded by steep cliffs, and at the right time of day, you might be able to see a few base jumpers taking advantage of them.

The best way to reach this destination is by boat, and with the right yacht transport company, that really isn’t going to be a problem. As with the previous destination, this is one that you can enjoy all year round.

Manarola, Liguria, Italy

Beaches are amazing, without a doubt, but sometimes you want to see something different. If you’re thinking of getting yacht transportation this year or next, you might want to think about stopping by this destination. It’s beautiful, and it’s a very authentic Italian village. Exploring the village is fun, but if you want a break, make sure you check out some of the hiking trails which are perfect solo, or with a romantic partner. You can visit this village all year round and take some amazing memories home with you.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Med, but it also has another feature: it’s protected by UNESCO due to its historical significance. This is an amazing piece of the past, and you can see it from all angles with the use of a cable car. If you’re more interested in exploring it from ground level then you’ll definitely want to check out some of the summer festivals, and even spend some time on the beaches.

Get the Best Yacht Transport to the Med

Now that you know what you want to see in the Med, the question is getting there. Our boat transport costs are very competitive and can be completed in a timely manner, giving you plenty of time to explore the area. Call us today to learn more about your yacht transport opportunities.

 

Professional Yacht Transport vs. DIY – You’re in for some Cost Savings

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

When it comes to yacht transport, you want to save money, and at first glance, actually having your boat loaded onto a transport vessel probably looks very expensive. A typical trip is probably going to cost you $500,000 or more, but when you take into consideration the cost of moving the yacht yourself, you’re going to find that it’s well worth it to pay us to get the job done.

A Look at the DIY Costs of Yacht Transport

So, what kind of costs would you be looking at if you attempted to sail to the Mediterranean or any other destination on your own? Short range trips are perfect for consumer yachts, but when you start talking about crossing oceans, you’re probably going to have a bit of an issue. The following are a few of the costs that you should be concerning yourself with:

Fuel – This is one of the single largest expenses that you’re going to deal with – did you know that it can cost you more than half a million dollars in fuel just to get from Miami to the west coast? That’s more than it would cost to have a yacht shipping company like ours get the job done for you, and that’s absolutely unforgivable.

Crew Costs – Unless you’re an expert sailor you’re going to need to pay some crew to help you get from Point A to Point B. The crew will complete various tasks, including engine maintenance to make sure that everything runs smoothly. The last thing you want is to find yourself stuck out on the water without a crew to help you repair a busted engine.

Supplies – A long trip is going to burn through supplies – of that, there is no doubt. You will find yourself going through food, water, and all sorts of other equipment designed to keep you alive during your long trip. It all adds up, and soon enough, those protein bars you packed are going to start looking like dollar signs.

Maintenance – Last, but certainly not least, you’re going to have maintenance costs. Sailing is hard on any yacht, but if you’re taking it over a long distance you’re definitely going to have some problems. That being said, you’ll need to make sure you have several thousand dollars set aside to repair the damage once you get into port. We’re not just talking about damage to the exterior of the boat, we’re talking about damage to the engine and many other parts – it’s all important.

Hire a Yacht Transport Company Instead

Instead of taking on the journey yourself, why not hire a company that knows what they’re doing and can get your boat to the other side of the world safely? Sure, it’s going to be a bit expensive, but it’s far cheaper than the alternative, which would be to pay for all of the items that we mentioned above. United Yacht Transport not only has access to the best equipment, but also the skill to make sure that your boat makes it from Point A to Point B without a scratch, and on time. Want to know more? Are you ready to start your yacht transport journey? You might just be on your way to a dream vacation, a boat show, or a new home, and it can happen faster than you think. Give us a call today to find out more!

 

The Mediterranean’s Natural Wonders: Melissani Cave

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Yacht transport to the Mediterranean is pretty popular this year, and why shouldn’t it be? There are so many different things to see, do, and experience throughout the entire area. You also have the chance to take some amazing pictures back home, which more than helps compensate for the boat transport cost. Today we’re going to talk a bit about Melissani Cave – an outstanding destination for anyone thinking about yacht transportation to the Mediterranean.

Get Yacht Transport and Visit the Cave of Melissani

If your plan is to visit this outstanding location, you’re going to find it right outside Sami. As far as destinations go, this is definitely one that you’re going to want to visit, and with good reason. There’s a lot of mystery here for new and old tourists alike, along with the forests surrounding it. Inside the cave, you’ll find two chambers separated by an island in the center. Above, a caved roof allows sunlight to seep through and at the right time of day (at noon) the entire cave appears to be filled with blue light. It’s an illusion, of course, but it’s definitely something to see, and a great reason to arrange for yacht transport to ensure that you DO get to see it at some point.

Other times of the day work their own brand of magic on this natural wonder, meaning that while noon is definitely the ideal time to stop by, you can enjoy it at virtually any time of day. If you want to see something really cool, visit in the early morning. The water in the cave is 20 to 30 meters deep, which is actually pretty considerable, but at the right time, and with a boat of your own, you can enjoy the illusion of boats floating in a pool of light. To put it simply, that’s just plain cool.

If you’re interested in seeing a different view of the cave, then you’ll definitely want to take a hike to the top where you’re going to have access to a small balcony that allows you to look down on the interior. You can see this cave from all different angles, and you can also see it from several different perspectives. For example, the first chamber of the cave is sunlit, but the second is still dark, covered in moss, and features many stalactites. To put it simply, if you visit this cave, it’s one that you are going to remember for the rest of your life.

Get the Best Yacht Transport to the Area

If you want to see this cave in style then you’re going to want to bring your yacht. Don’t worry; you can do exactly that with the right yacht transport company. United Yacht not only has the ability to get your boat across the sea, we have a combined thirty years of experience which will ensure that your yacht is loaded properly at the Port of Miami and will reach its destination on time and without a single scratch. Want to know more? Are you ready to undertake the ultimate adventure to the Mediterranean with your precious yacht in tow? We have the equipment, we have the experience, and we have a list of great destinations that we ship to every single year. For more information and to get your ultimate vacation started, give us a call and see what we have available. Not only is it a more convenient option, it is far cheaper than moving the yacht on your own. We have your best interest at heart and we’re going to get the job done right.

The Cannes Yacht Show – A Great Reason for Boat Transport

Categories: Tags: , , , , , , , ,

When it comes to yacht transport, for boats big and small, boat shows are without a doubt one of the most common reasons for them. Yacht shows are common around the world, as you probably already know, from Miami to France. Today we’re going to be talking a bit about the Cannes boat show which takes place in France, particularly of the resort town of Cannes. Cannes has many claims to fame, for example, the international film festival, along with the Boulevard de la Croisette which embodies a curving road along the coast, lined with some of the most beautiful, white sandy beaches the world has ever seen, end of story. There are plenty of other things that make Cannes really stand out, but we’re going to cover the boat show today, after which, we’ll have a word about the importance of proper boat transport.

Boat Transport to the Greatest Show in the Eastern World

The Cannes boat show is more than proud to welcome some of the greatest and most admired exhibitors from around the world, along with visitors, both of whom will meet in one of two French Riviera ports:

  • The Vieux Port
  • The Port Pierre Canto

Once you have settled into the area and found your place, you will be able to find up to 600 boats on display both in the water and on land. You could even be one of them – wouldn’t’ that be exciting? With the right yacht transport company, it could certainly be a possibility. The yachts on display are going to include more than one hundred world premieres; yachts that have never before been seen on the market – you might even find something you like. These shipyards even offer trips out to sea so that potential buyers can see the boat from every angle, including the deck. As you can see, for the discerning yacht owners, this is the place you want to be.

Visit the Luxury Gallery

Inside the Palais des Festivals, there will be the Luxury Gallery, which is dedicated to crafts, and lifestyle, and it will, of course, be an obligatory walkthrough. It is situated right after the main entrance on the Croisette side, so visitors will get a chance to check out the latest in lifestyle technology. The gallery will allow visitors to see high-end brands, and make important decisions about their own yachting accessories. The Cannes boat show is without a doubt one of the best that Eastern world has to offer, and if you want to participate with your own yacht or yachts, then you’re going to need the best transport.

Getting the Best Transport to Cannes

If you want to enter your yacht in the show, then it’s all going to start with getting the best possible transport. Don’t worry; it’s entirely possible. United Yacht has been doing this for years and has a combined experience of thirty years between all of the employees. We have a number of different factors working in our favor and yours, for example, we charter our freighters rather than owning them outright, meaning that if you schedule far enough in advance, we can accommodate a boat of any size. In addition to that, we’re able to load both above and below deck, ensuring a much less expensive journey for you if the freighter is full.

The Cannes boat show is right around the corner, and as always, United Yacht will have a presence there. Want to know more? Would you like to learn more about yacht transport and how we facilitate it? Now would be a great time for you to start asking questions! Call us today or check out our website.
