Yacht transporter, Peters & May has scheduled a new route to Australia’s east coast, which will depart from Antwerp, via Southampton, to reach Sydney and then Brisbane in around 35 and 45 days. This initial trip will be followed by departures from Palma and Genoa in mid-September, Newport and Fort Lauderdale at the beginning of October and Singapore in mid-October.

The first return trip will begin loading in mid-January 2015 before departing for West Palm Beach. All but one of the trips have been planned in conjunction with Peters & May’s Australian agent, Aurora Global Logistics; the US route will be managed from the new Peters & May office in Fort Lauderdale.

Robert Blades, Peters & May’s global sales and marketing director said, “Over the past year we have noticed a significant increase in enquiries for these routes. Working closely with our well-established partners in Australia, Aurora Global Logistics, we have put in place a comprehensive schedule from Northern Europe to Australia’s East Coast. With the experience we have in moving an infinite variety of vessels we are confident these services will become annual successes for Aurora, Peters & May and our customers.”

Jason Roberts, marketing director of Aurora Logistics, added: “As part of the Peters & May network we are excited to offer the Australian marine industry a high-level, part charter option. There are very few reliable international yacht transport services available in the trade routes between Australia, Europe and the USA. Therefore, with the implementation of these part charter sailings, both Aurora and Peters & May are able to offer an alternative transport option for yacht owners, dealers, race yachts and commercial craft alike.”
