Peters and May Announces First Australian Shipping Service
Published: Tuesday, 29 July 2014
Peters and May, one of the world’s most experienced boat transport operators announces the departure schedule of its newly introduced sailing to the East Coast of Australia. With only one other operator offering this route, Peters and May can now provide customers with a competitive alternative.
Starting in Antwerp via Southampton in late August, the vessel will take between 35 and 45 days to reach Sydney and Brisbane.
The new sailings have been arranged in conjunction with Peters and May’s exclusive Australian agent Aurora Global Logistics, while the US route will be managed between Peters and May’s new premises in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the Peters and May’s Head Office in the UK.
“Over the past year we have noticed a significant increase in enquiries for these routes,” says Robert Blades, Peters and May Global Sales and Marketing Director. “Working closely with our well established partners in Australia, Aurora Global Logistics, we have put in place a comprehensive schedule from Northern Europe to Australia’s East Coast.”
“As part of the Peters and May network we are excited to offer the Australian marine industry a high level, part charter option,” says Jason Roberts, Marketing Director of Aurora Logistics. “There are very few reliable international yacht transport services available in the trade routes between Australia, Europe and the US, therefore with the implementation of these part charter sailings, both Aurora and Peters and May are able to offer an alternative transport option for yacht owners, dealers, race yachts and commercial craft alike.”
