UK logistics provider Peters & May has arranged the shipment of Sunseeker’s latest superyacht, the Sunseeker 34 Metre, to East Asia.
The yacht will take the Maersk Line’s Rotterdam to Far East route, via the Mediterranean, before arriving in Hong Kong where Peters & May’s boat handlers will oversee loading and discharge.
“In preparation for the lift, divers carefully positioned the slings so that the high load involved was safely distributed and no underwater parts were snagged,” says Gerald Price at Peters & May Ltd. “We also had independent surveyors on hand to ensure all procedures were carried out correctly prior to the ship’s departure.”
The shipment of the new Sunseeker 34 Metre is the latest in a line of Peters & May deliveries to East Asia, which include a five-vessel delivery on a single sailing of Maersk Line’s Rotterdam to Far East route. One of the five yachts delivered during this sailing was a factory delivery of a new Sunseeker 30 Metre superyacht to Hong Kong.
With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, Peters & May ships around 8,000 vessels per year and is the preferred shipper to boatbuilders such as Correct Craft, Gulf Craft, Sunseeker and Viking Yacht Company.
