Global Yacht Transport



What Types Of Yachts Do You Ship?

We specialize in shipping various types of yachts, including sailing yachts, racing yachts, motorboats, superyachts, and commercial boats. We handle a wide range of vessels, ensuring their safe and timely transport.

How long is the yacht loading window?

With all loadings, we give a 15-day window for shipment in which your yacht must be available. The reason for this is based on the consolidation of yachts wanting to ship from A to B during the same period. Through economies of scale we can ensure we offer customers the best rate for shipping if consolidation is an option. Secondly, until all bookings are finalised the vessel cannot be nominated. Vessel schedules can vary, requiring flexibility in loading date.
