Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT) conquered a new frontier when it delivered a shipment of pleasure yachts to Jebel Ali, Dubai on February 19th, in time for the Dubai International Boat Show, which begins March 11th.
The operation took place aboard the Lady Gloria, a ship supplied by BBC Chartering and Logistics, which partnered with DYT last October to expand global shipping options for DYT customers and will now regularly service Dubai and other previously hard-to-reach destinations. The same loading masters who manage DYT's unique float-on/float-off service for its fleet of four semi-submersible ships managed the lift-on/lift-off service aboard the Lady Gloria, one of 140 BBC vessels in operation worldwide.
On its voyage from Port Everglades to Dubai via Genoa, Lady Gloria loaded an impressive set of yachts, including a new, 105-foot Mangusta and a unique 30-foot limousine tender from Royal Denship.
DYT President Clemens van der Werf said, "Dubai will be a regular stop for DYT, which now also services new ports of call in Southampton, UK; Aarhus, Denmark; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Houston, Texas, in an effort to expand cruising options to these exciting international playgrounds."
