As the leaders and pioneers in yacht transport, Sevenstar Yacht Transport in partnership with DYT Yacht Transport—the only float-on, float-off yacht carrier—offer sailings year round to and from New Zealand and Australia.

Having loaded yachts in the Mediterranean, MV Happy Dragon arrived Nov 23 in Auckland, New Zealand and will proceed to Newcastle, Australia to discharge the remainder of the vessels in time for the clients to enjoy the holidays onboard their yachts.

Most of the yachts were purchased in the Mediterranean or in the US and are being delivered to their owners in New Zealand or Australia. Others are owned by overseas clients who want to explore the Southern Hemisphere or return home after spending time overseas.

The next sailing will be aboard DYT’s MV Yacht Express, which is scheduled to load in Port Everglades, Florida around Dec 5 and will call on Golfito, Costa Rico and Papeete, Tahiti prior to its arrival in Brisbane. This will mark the second time she has called on the South Pacific region since her launch in 2007. She will be returning to the Mediterranean via port calls in Auckland, Golfito and Port Everglades. MV Yacht Express will arrive in Genoa with time to spare before the spring cruising season begins.

Discharge ports for these sailings will be Golfito, Port Everglades, Gibraltar and The Netherlands.
