Global Yacht Transport


DNA Performance Sailing G4 Catamaran Shipment


Peters & May demonstrates their expertise in bespoke logistics with the successful global transport of a 40ft Foiling Catamaran, built by DNA performance sailing. This project, involving coordination with agents, shipping partners, and suppliers, highlights Peters & May’s proficiency in managing and executing complex logistic operations.

The Challenge

The project entailed transporting the G4 Catamaran from Lelystad, Netherlands, to Oceania, requiring a bespoke solution for safe storage and transportation. The challenge was magnified by the need for a custom cradle design, accommodating the catamaran’s unique structure and the constraints of the superyacht where it would be stored.

The approach

The transportation began with designing a lightweight carbon fiber cradle, developed in collaboration with DNA performance sailing. The cradle was equipped with multiple lashing points and a special walkway for easy boarding. The journey involved multiple stages, from trucking to Rotterdam, shipping to Fremantle, Australia, and a final change in plans to Auckland, New Zealand.

The Outcome

The catamaran’s journey spanned several continents and oceans, showcasing Peters & May’s ability to adapt to changing logistics scenarios and deliver specialized cargo safely and efficiently. The successful delivery of the G4 Catamaran to its final destination in New Zealand is a testament to Peters & May’s global network and bespoke logistics capabilities.

Using a lightweight carbon fibre, the cradle was built with numerous lashing points and the ability to eventually bolt the cradle in place to the helipad aboard the Superyacht.
