Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT), a wholly owned
subsidiary of Dockwise Ltd., has announced a cooperative partnership with BBC Chartering &
Logistic to expand global shipping options for its clients -- owners and captains of private luxury
yachts. The strategic alliance allows
DYT to continue offering its unique float-on/float-off yacht
transport service with its own fleet of four semi-submersible ships while adding an alternative
lift-on/lift-off service option through BBC, which operates more than 140 vessels worldwide.
Among the new regular routes accommodated by BBC will be regular connections from the
Caribbean to Northern Europe, Florida to Brazil, and to Dubai. All other worldwide requests can
also be accommodated.
DYT's global routes for its semi-submersibles currently
include the U.S. East Coast (Newport,
and Port Everglades, Florida), the Mediterranean (Toulon, France; Genoa, Italy;
Marmaris, Turkey; Palma de Mallorca, Spain), Northern Europe (La Rochelle and Cherbourg,
France), the Caribbean (St. Thomas, Martinique and Freeport), the Pacific West Coast (Golfito,
Costa Rica; La Paz and Ensenada, Mexico and Vancouver, B.C., Canada) and the South Pacific
(Papeete, Tahiti; Auckland, New Zealand and Brisbane, Australia).
