Aurora specialist yacht transportAurora Global Logistics in conjunction with its network partners Peters & May Racing, are proud to announce complete transport services to and from major international yacht racing events, including the 2016 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Jason Roberts, Director at Aurora says the service will focus on events: Sydney Hobart, 26 December 2016, the Transpac Race 2017 Long Beach to Hawaii 3 July 2017, and the Hong Kong to Vietnam Race 2017, 18 October 2017.

“We have put together a calendar covering the major international racing events, which works out more cost-effective for clients,” said Roberts. “We have the runs on the board with successful shipping and handling of iconic vessels such as Comanche and Wild Oats XI.”

Aurora has a specialist team with the expertise to carry boats from 30-feet to 200-feet, many of them with delicate components that require extra care.

“Race Yachts and their riggings are expensive delicate pieces of cargo which require specialist care and knowledge regarding international transport,” says Roberts. “There are unique insurance requirements and then there are the race deadlines and other delivery parameters set by owners. Their boats have to arrive in plenty of time to prepare them and their crews ahead of such high-profile events.”

At each end, Aurora handles the Customs and Quarantine formalities, and the discharging of yachts directly to water.

Roberts reports increasing demand for racing yachts to and from Australia, momentum led primarily by being the Australian agent for Peters & May, the largest global boat transport and marine logistics provider for race teams, superyacht manufacturers and private boat owners.

For those yachts planning to compete in the European season, depending on client demand, Aurora and its network partners Peters & May Racing will accommodate clients for the 2017 circuit.

With a global network of agents, and over 10 years’ experience transporting and customs clearing everything from speed boats to superyachts, Aurora specialises in tailor made solutions, providing full turnkey services and advice in all facets of the job.
