United Yacht Transport Maintains Status as the North American Leader in Yacht Transport

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 13, 2015: After just two short years, United Yacht Transport has quickly made a name for itself as the North American leader in boat transport. Its innovative techniques paired with top-tier employees have enabled the company to successfully transport thousands of yachts and boats worldwide. United Yacht Transport explains what puts them ahead of the rest.

 

What are the key benefits of choosing United Yacht Transport 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 exactly does a yacht get transported? What is the process like?

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.

 

What makes lifters certified to handle yachts?

Each of United Yacht Transport’s employees has gone through rigorous training and has handled 8,000 yachts.

 

How long does it take to load and unload a yacht?

The entire process of loading and unloading generally takes about an hour or two, depending on the vessel.

 

What is the furthest United Yacht Transport has transported, and what are its plans for the future? 

Thus far, Singapore is the furthest that United Yacht Transport has transported. The company focuses on the East and West Coasts of America and the Mediterranean, but plans on expanding more into the Mediterranean and Asia to meet the demands of the market.

United Yacht Transport Looks Into Still Water’s Voyage Into Cuban Waters

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., September 25, 2015 —  With the opening up of Cuba’s waters, the first U.S. Charter Yacht made its voyage to the country last month. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, takes a look into the expedition and its impact on the yachting community.

Superyacht Numarine 78 Flybridge M/Y Still Water was the first American charter yacht to sail into the waters of Cuba. The last time this was legal was in the early 1960’s, prior to the trade embargo being imposed. Still Water cruised into the Marina Hemingway in Havana loaded with 15 people, including both crew and passengers.

The entire process to be granted the ability to carry out this voyage still took approximately 7 months. The trip, however, only took about 4 hours to travel from Key West, Florida to Cuba. It is anticipated that being granted permission for Cuban voyages may be facilitated now that the U.S. Embassy officially opened in Havana on August 14th.

The opening up of Cuba’s waters provides more travel opportunities for yachters, which leads to more business for yacht transport companies. There is an anticipated rise in transports to Cuba in the coming years, and travelers can look forward to experiencing a beautiful country that is rich in history and culture.

United Yacht Transport Talks Top 3 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Yacht Transport Company

Categories:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept.  2, 2015 — Choosing the best yacht transport company is crucial in the safe and secure transfer of your vessel from point A to point B. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, discusses a few factors all yacht owners should consider when looking for a reliable transport company.

 

  1. Transport options. The size of your vessel determines how it can be transported. Small yachts are equipped for road transport, while larger yachts can be transported on a container vessel or by a carrying company. Contracting with an exclusive yacht carrier that specializes transports of this size is extremely beneficial, as you are handing over your vessel to a company that encompasses an expert and highly qualified staff.
  2. Pricing. While going with the company that offers you the lowest price for its service may seem like the best option, it may not always work out in your favor. Transport companies may try to lure in business with low prices, but not be able to follow through. Seek companies who strive to develop long-term relationships through reliable service, and avoid those who are just looking for a one-time transaction.
  3. Delivery and cancellations. Make sure that your yacht transporter provides you with a reasonable window of time for delivery. While it is unfeasible to provide an accurate arrival date due to uncontrollable conditions, an acceptable window of time should always be laid out in the agreement. However, assure that your yacht transport provider clearly defines a cancellation date in the contract. Non-performance warrants a cancellation, and you should make sure you are covered in the event of an substantial delay in transport.
