Sevenstar Yacht Transport is one of the leading providers of yacht shipping services, with a global network of destinations and a fleet of over 120 independent vessels. The company is headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and runs a worldwide network with offices in the United States, the UK, Australia and Turkey, and agents in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Monaco, Germany, Russia, Mexico, Gibraltar and BVI. In October 2013, Sevenstar acquired DYT Yacht Transport, including two semi-submersible vessels dedicated to float-on, float-off yacht transport, creating a perfect fit with Sevenstar’s lift-on, lift-off yacht transport specialty.
“We are very pleased to have Sevenstar come on board as a Supporting Partner for the World Rally. As the trusted partner in yacht transport with a long tradition and outstanding reputation, we are sure they will provide an excellent service to our Oyster Owners,” says Oyster Yachts Chief Executive Officer David Tydeman.
The Oyster World Rally 2017-19 is exclusively organised for the Owners of Oyster yachts. The departure from Antigua is set for January 2017. The World Rally entails a fully-supported 27,000 mile circumnavigation extended from 15 to 27 months and comprises four connecting stages. The route takes in some of the most beautiful regions of the world, with generous cruising time at the end of each passage and making the best of seasonal weather patterns. A special Oyster support team will provide shore support at each stopover and will be on hand the whole way around to help the Oyster World Rally participants where needed.
“It's a real privilege to be able to support the Oyster World Rally. We have a long tradition in helping Oyster Owners fulfill their cruising dreams by providing them with shipping to their dream destinations. At Sevenstar, we pride ourselves in providing a reliable and personal service and we look forward to working together with the excellent team at Oyster to make the World Rally a resounding success for everyone involved,” says Head of Sevenstar Yacht Transport Evan Kortmann.
