Sevenstar Yacht Transport, Australia, led by Dean Sharples, a familiar figure to many in the maritime industry, remains available to DYT and its clients to assist with their yacht transport requirements while in the area. “We are delighted to include DYT, with its highly rated float-on, float-off yacht transport service, as our partner,” says Sharples. “In combination with our lift-on, lift off specialty we can now offer the complete suite to clients.”
Shipping a yacht may not be a captain’s natural choice, as they have a passion for sailing the ocean blue; but practically speaking, it saves yacht owners wear and tear on their precious possessions and helps preserve their yacht resale value down the road. Cost-wise, it is comparable to sailing a vessel on its own keel, without all the follow-up hassle and added expense of maintenance required after a long ocean passage.
