When shipping a vessel overseas, there are some pretty important factors to consider. Most often, the most important factor for boat owners is choosing the right shipping company. There are many reasons to choose United Yacht Shipping such as where we can ship a vessel, our experience, our custom services, and our support team. However, what might not be at the forefront of a boat owner’s mind when shipping, is “where” the vessel ships from.
Miami and the Greater Fort Lauderdale area are ideal ports to ship a vessel from because they are filled with people and businesses who know the shipping industry. Whether it is freight, people or yachts, Miami waterways are prepared for anything. Here are the top reasons to choose Miami as the destination to ship a vessel from.
A Strong Marine Industry – Everything about Miami somehow connects to the water. From one of vacations from PortMiami to living and working in the area. Miami is filled with people and businesses that live and breath the marine industry. What this means for boat owners is that the network and resources are plentiful and competitive. United Yacht Transport is connected with that greater network and knows qualified services to help with yacht shipping (such as packing and prepping a boat) or people, such as the best captains and crew.
The Marine Professionals – And speaking of captains and crew, Miami is filled with maritime professionals. We have the luxury of working with the very best and most experienced captains which means our clients’ vessels are in the hands of great people. Whether they need to navigate the busy waterways of Miami or know their way around the South of France, our teams can handle just about anything or any destination.
International Logistics – Miami is a cosmopolitan city, one with international relationships and policies. The shipping industry is a multi-billion dollar industry here, and that means efficiency in logistics and regulations. There is no room for mistakes when getting a vessel cleared for customs or prepped for a long voyage. Miami is more than ready to handle this kind of traffic and business.
Safety First – Since Miami is such a hub for shipping and business, the city is equipped for waterway safety with knowledgeable personnel. So much can wrong on the water, so it is our job to navigate in and out of Miami allowing professionals to take the lead in safety and having a team to call on in the event of unlikely emergencies.
This city is home to some of the most popular marine events. From the Miami International Boat Show to sportfishing expos and boat racing events. Miami lives and breaths waterway experience and breeds maritime experts. We are lucky to call this place home and have such a resourceful city to draw on.
