How can we help you? Here is an overview of the questions we are often being asked when talking about boat transportation.
For a change of scene, why not cast off and ship your yacht to a new home port for a season or two? Explore new destinations aboard your own ‘home from home’ or invite friends and family to your ‘second home’.
The Racing team at Peters & May will take the worry out of moving your boat to compete in a yacht race, or to take part in that ‘bucket list’ rally. For professional race teams we have all the solutions to ensure yachts, spares and equipment are in place for the start line.
We pride ourselves on ensuring the safe and secure transit of any piece of project cargo, whether a wind turbine, helicopter or flight simulator.
