UK-based yacht transporter Peters & May has announced the departure schedule of its newly introduced sailings to Australia’s east coast.

Commencing from Antwerp, Belgium via Southampton, England in late August, the vessel will take between 35 and 45 days to reach Sydney and Brisbane.

Other sailings to Australia have been scheduled from Palma de Mallorca and Genoa, Italy, which will begin loading mid-September.

A sailing will depart Singapore in mid-October, while from the US, sailing is scheduled from Newport and Ft Lauderdale in early October.

A return trip from Sydney and Brisbane to West Palm Beach will start loading mid-January 2015.

The new sailings have been arranged in conjunction with Peters & May’s exclusive Australian agent Aurora Global Logistics, while the US route will be managed between Peters & May’s new premises in Ft Lauderdale, Florida and the Peters & May head office in the UK.

“There are very few reliable international yacht transport services available in the trade routes between Australia, Europe and the USA,” says Jason Roberts, marketing director of Aurora Logistics. “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.”
