Peters & May expands routes to Australian territories
Peters & May has successfully shipped the 31.4m Southern Wind 96 sailing yacht Ammonite between Cape Town in South Africa and Newcastle, Australia, on the MV Sider Jasmin, a 138m cargo ship equipped with two 80-ton cranes.
This shipment marks Peters & May’s continuous expansion into Australian territories.
Ammonite represented a particularly precious shipment, says Peters & May. Her hull lines by Farr Yacht Design, her coachroof, forward and aft cockpits and coamings are all clad in natural teak. Twin rudders, a fixed bowsprit with an integrated anchor arm, and a high modulus carbon mast attest to her high-performance blue-water cruising credentials, added to the delicate task.
Following the success of this latest chartered shipment to Australia, Peters & May has announced that the next scheduled sailing to these territories will see the MV BBC Emerald departing Pape’ete, the capital of French Polynesia, in early December, bound for Newcastle, Australia. This sailing operates via Auckland, New Zealand, so loading is also available from Auckland.
