GBS enters North America

January 20 - German yacht transport company, Global Boat Shipping (GBS), has opened two new offices in Fort Lauderdale and Vancouver.

All North American operations will be managed by Egge Kloosterboer, who recently joined GBS and brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in yacht transport.

GBS is part of the EMS Fehn Group giving it direct access to a fleet of cargo vessels and excellent contacts in the shipping and logistics industry, which allows GBS flexibility in offering lo-lo and flo-flo services for super yachts.

"With the recent acquisition of Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT) by Sevenstar, there are fewer choices left for clients seeking reliable yacht transport. Now with our expansion into North America, we are in a position to offer clients another dependable and consistent alternative," said Christian van Hoorn, managing director of GBS.
