Yacht Express Makes Debut Down Under

Friday, July 18, 2008

Dockwise Yacht Transports’ (DYT) newest ship, the 687.5-ft. (209 meter) Yacht Express, is due to arrive in next week. The largest vessel of its kind in the world, Yacht Express was purpose-built with a semi-submersible dock bay that allows yachts of any size to be safely floated on and off as cargo. The ship made its maiden voyage from , , to , in April with a mostly-megayacht load worth $154m.

Twenty-five of the vessels will unload in while eight will remain in transit. Sixteen vessels will then load in for the return voyage where their final destination will be either , (Tahiti) or before Yacht Express returns to for its next transatlantic expedition.

The Yacht Express has a service speed of 18 knots which aims to pare down transport times. Yacht Express is more than 130 ft. longer than DYT's other three semi-submersible carriers and features such added amenities as complimentary cabins, an atrium with lounge bar and swimming pool, restaurant and cinema, as well as conference, media and fitness facilities.
