Yacht transport and logistics provider Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT), has partnered with the New Zealand Millennium Cup to offer an attractive discount on southbound shipping for the 2013, 2014 and 2015 editions of the superyacht event.
The discounted DYT voyage for 2013 will sail from Palma de Mallorca, Spain at the end of November and stop in Le Marin (Martinique), Port Everglades (Florida) and Golfito (Costa Rica) in December before arriving in Auckland in time for the regatta's February 14 start.
"We transport yachts of all sizes to different ports around the world," said DYT's exclusive agent for New Zealand, Dave Ross, who will handle all arrangements for interested parties, "But owners and captains of superyachts are especially appreciative of our knowledge of the South Pacific and the service we provide with our fleet of semi-submersible ships, which utilize a float-on/float-off method that is unique to Dockwise Yacht Transport."
The New Zealand Millennium Cup, hosted by the New Zealand Marine Export Group from 14-17 February 2013, is now an annual fixture on the superyacht circuit and is set to become the premier superyacht regatta of the South Pacific.
Its format is a mix of harbour and passage races in the Hauraki Gulf to make the most of the spectacular yachting environs. The programme of events gets underway on the evening of the 14th with a cocktail party and briefing for owners and captains.
Racing, and further social events take place over the 15th and 16th, with the last of the racing taking place on the 17th, followed by a dinner, official prize giving and entertainment to close.
(DYT), headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializes in the maritime transport of private luxury yachts, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dockwise Ltd.
Since its maiden voyage in 1987, the company has transported over 12,000 motor and sailing yachts to various destinations around the globe.
