How does it work?
Boats and Yachts for yacht transport are loaded onto ships by port cranes or specialized Heavy Lift ships.
On certain routings also ‘float on- float off’ services exist for yacht transports, however these services do not sail to all destinations, as passing the Suez and Panama Canal becomes very expensive.
A boat is lifted from the water to the ship by heavy lift cranes and is placed on a suitable shipping cradle for yacht shipping!
