Peters & May forms strategic partnership
By Rory Jackson
Peters & May Superyacht, the superyachting branch of bespoke logistics company, has announced a strategic partnership between itself and BBC Chartering, the global shipping company. The strategic partnership gives Peters & May stronger access to BBC Chartering’s 150 heavy lift vessels.
“This is an exicting time for our business. Our agreement with BBC Chartering, alongside our existing partnership with Normed for our Northern European to Mediterranean business, allows us to further increase the strength of our global yacht transport solutions and offer an enhanced service to our clients,” comments Dave Holley, the Peters & May Group’s CEO. “BBC Chartering’s fleet of vessels is second to none when it comes to quality and capabilities, with over 150 vessels positioned worldwide.”
With the superyacht fleet continuously expanding, in terms of vessel numbers, unit sizes and global cruising grounds, the shipping industry will become an increasingly important element of the superyacht market. BBC Chartering’s attractive part charter options and heavy lift vessels ensure that Peters & May are capable of lifting and transporting the world’s largest superyachts and are able to provide the geographical flexibility required by todays superyacht owners.
“We own all of the cradles and lifting gear used within our operations, so we mitigate risk by controlling as many of the aspects of transportation as possible, key to this are our very experienced load masters,” explains Josh Flavell of Peters & May. “The benefit of BBC Chartering is that they have great vessels and a strong fleet with more heavy lift vessels, which have reinforced decks.”
The other benefit that Flavell cites is the working relationship between the two companies. Having worked hand-in-hand for a number of years, the announcement of a strategic partnership merely reinforces the strong working relationship that has been present for a number of years and provides a better guarantee to owners that they will receive a well-oiled and efficient service.
