Sailing on board a Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics vessel may seem like an unusual way to travel for yachts and sailing boats. However, they will never experience a smoother journey.
We can accommodate boats and yachts including cradle as tall as 5.25 m below deck
Unlike other breakbulk segments, this is primarily oriented towards consumers, rather than industry. It’s not surprising then that its fortunes tend to follow those of the economy in general. Since affordability is one of the major concerns when dealing with boat and yacht customers, the quality of transport logistics can end up being less scrutinised. However, your end customers’ satisfaction depends on the quality and punctuality of the final delivery, which will reflect not just the ex works quality and timeliness, but also the quality and punctuality of the transportation.
Regardless of your product range, WWL can meet your ocean transportation needs. From cradling to optimal stowing of smaller boats up to arranging crane operations for large yachts to and from the weather deck. To optimize your supply chain and increase your speed to market, we can also offer different value-added services such as storage in customs bonded areas, customs clearance and arrangement of road transport.
Most often, smaller boats and yachts arrive at the port of loading on their own trailers and are carefully towed on board. In cases where larger boats and yachts reach the port in cradles, we carefully load both the cradle and its cargo onto a roll trailer for stowage on board or use a crane for stowage on the weather deck. At the port of discharge, we can also lift or deliver boats and yachts directly into the water using a floating crane, a mobile crane or a port crane.
We can accommodate boats and yachts including cradle as tall as 5.25 m below deck. This measurement takes into consideration the height of a standard roll trailer and a clearance of 20 cm (8 in) between the top of the cargo and the deck above, which is required for safe operations.
