Fort Lauderdale is home to an estimated 178,752 residents who call this beautiful Floridian city their home. Interestingly, Fort Lauderdale was the first United States stockade and it was constructed in 1838 as it was the battleground for the Second Seminole War. After the battle, the fort was abandoned in 1842, however, after the war ended, the area remained practically unpopulated for the next 50 years. It was not until the 1890s that people really began moving in.

Today, Fort Lauderdale is a bustling city, known to many as the “Venice of America”. There are many beautiful sights to see; from the Butterfly World and the Museum of Discovery and Science to the John U. Lloyd Beach State Park and the Bonnet House. Fort Lauderdale is full of fun and historical places to visit and explore.

What does the United Yacht Transport Company have to do with Fort Lauderdale?

Actually, the UYTC is based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and they specialize in transporting yachts via carrier ships across the ocean to any worldwide destination. The 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.
While many routes are seasonal and some of them are frequented only specific times of year, upon special request, the United Yacht Transport Company will make a special trip. When and where there are boat showings, however, expect the UYTC to be traveling those routes often.

How can the Yacht Transport ship boats via carrier ships?

When a client is ready to ship their yacht, they contact us, explaining all the details and their desired destinations. When it comes time to send the boat, the size of it will determine how it is loaded onto the transport vessel. If the boat is larger and more cumbersome, it will be placed onto a trailer (or cradle, as some call it) and driven aboard the transport ship where it will be parked on the deck. However, if the boat is lighter, it can be picked up by a crane and placed onboard.
