UYT loads in Everglades

May 18 - United Yacht Transport (UYT) has loaded 19 yachts on board Intermarine's heavy lift vessel Industrial Guide in Port Everglades, USA.

The 174 ft (53 m) Expedition yacht, named Ulucitcan, was the heaviest vessel to be loaded, weighing 650 tonnes.

The 19 yachts, which included a 151 ft (46 m) Leopard and a 130 ft (39.6 m) Mangusta, were loaded above and below deck, filling the entire ship with over USD200 million worth of yachts, says UYT.

Paul Haber, UYT president, explained:  "The most challenging part was the extensive logistics and pre-planning that needed to be done well in advance of the ship arriving in Port Everglades. Our operations team designed a customised lifting plan to not only load the 174 ft (53 m) Expedition, but to also load it in such a way to allow for the other boats to be loaded on deck and in the hold."

The yachts were loaded utilising the ship's 700-tonne capacity cranes and will be transported to Genoa in Italy.
