There is a new option for reliable yacht transport. Raven Offshore Yacht Shipping provides yacht owners a safe and reliable alternative to transport their vessels along scheduled shipping lines aboard Grieg Star ships. The first shipping departs between August 20-Sept. 5 from Vancouver, B.C.

The world of yacht shipping has changed forever with the arrival of Raven Offshore Yacht Shipping (Ship Raven). Ship Raven is a direct provider offering liner-style service for anyone wanting to ship their vessel (yacht, sailboat, sport fish or commercial) between the East and West Coasts of North America to several worldwide destinations. With their first transport beginning August 20, 2013 from Vancouver, BC, anyone wanting to ship their vessel safely, reliably and on schedule now has a new choice -- Raven Offshore Yacht Shipping.

For each transport, Ship Raven exclusively charters the decks of Grieg’s L-Class Ships (paid-in-full), virtually eliminating any third-party issues. Grieg Star has fixed-base cargo contracts and solid sailing schedules, further reducing any hassles or worries about when their vessel will arrive. Utilizing the world-class lift on/lift off services of MHL, Raven’s loadmasters have successfully loaded more than 8,000 yachts and, according to Lloyds’ underwriters, have the highest safety records in the industry. In addition, most are also trained as engineers to further ensure safe loading and offloading of all vessels as cargo.

The team members at Ship Raven, established earlier this year, are hardly newcomers to the shipping industry. The founders of the company together have more than 22 years in the cargo shipping industry. With the added background as both captain and Cargo Insurance professional, Cofounder, Rick Gladych also brings a keen eye for related risks and challenges with yacht shipping, providing an added layer of customer service for his clients
