Big 45 boat trip for Peters & May
Peters & May transported 45 yachts on a single vessel from the Caribbean to Southampton last month.
The yachts were loaded above and below decks of HHL New York following Antigua Sailing Week and arrived with in the Solent 10 days later for the vessel’s first port call to ABP Southampton.
Simon Judson, global operations director at Peters & May, said: “With our support of Antigua Sailing Week and the ARC we have had seven sailings out of the Caribbean this season, I’m very proud of the team and with the level of demand for our service at an all-time high, we are already taking bookings for our 2018 sailings!”
Following arrival of HHL New York at Southampton, the Peters & May loadmasters reunited the first set of yachts with their owners. The vessel then continued to Bremerhaven, Germany, where the remaining yachts were discharged.
Ross Applbey, owner of Oyster Lightwave 48 Scarlet Oyster, commented: “After a busy sailing season in the Caribbean, it is much more relaxing to know we can trust Peters & May to ship her back.”
The Caribbean season saw seven Peters & May sailings depart from Antigua, St Thomas and Fort Lauderdale.
