ZIM’s Special cargo team handled a unique shipment of a 100-ton, 92-foot long yacht, shipped on board C/V ZIM Ontario from Asia to the Port of Savannah. The new barge crane, the Savannah Giant, was used for the first time during the discharge operation in Sept.23.

“The Savannah Giant is a valuable addition to our offerings at the Port of Savannah, with a capacity of up to 500 short tons,” said Georgia Ports Authority Executive Director Curtis Foltz. “Not only can it offload these enormous cargoes, but as seen in the recent yacht lift, our new barge crane can move super-heavy loads between terminals.”

The crane was stationed alongside the Zim Ontario to make the lift from the vessel. The yacht was taken off the vessel and transported in the cradle from Garden City Terminal down river to Ocean Terminal and discharged into a slip to take advantage of increased security. This was the first lift made with the Savannah Giant since it became part of the GPA operation in August.

The yacht, estimated at $8 million, was built by Alexander Yacht builders of Kaohsiung and is destined for the Miami Boat show.
