Earlier this year Reliance Yacht Management announced the increase to their freight services and adding the route Southampton, UK to Port Huenene, California. The RoRo vessels can accommodate yachts below decks.

The Lagoon 52 delivered from the factory in Bordeaux to La Rochelle then shipped to Auckland arrives in time for Christmas. The end destination will be the Dream Yacht charter base in Noumea, New Caledonia.
The New Nautitech 40 leaves La Rochelle for Concarneau.
Reliance Yacht Management is tasked to manage the delivery of this new catamaran from the factory in Roquefort, France to Los Angeles, California. This video shows the next leg of the journey.
Note the mast and boom are lashed to the deck ready for loading to ship in Southampton.
The Nautitch 40 transfers from its launch site in the old marina to Port des Minimes La Rochelle. This is the next stage of it delivery to California. Weather permitting she will move from next to Southampton UK for loading on a ship later this month.
As the Christmas holidays approach, I wanted to take the opportunity to put a few thoughts down on ‘paper’.
First of all let me wish all of you – our staff, our captains and crew, our customers, our suppliers, and everyone else – a very Merry Christmas! I offer my sincere wishes for a great holiday season and wish you all a Happy New Year (in advance) for 2019.
The Christmas holidays always provide a natural time to take a step back from the business and reflect on the happenings of previous year. I would like to extend my thanks to all my team who have worked so hard this year to drive the business forward.
So a big well done to all the team for their efforts in the past 12 months. A huge focus now on streamlining processes and increasing efficiency, coupled with a host of new exciting customers, means that Reliance Yacht Management will look forward to another successful year of significant growth.
I will also ask that we remember those captains and crew that will be at sea at this time away from the friends and family continuing our good work to complete their deliveries safely.
We must also spare a thought at Christmas for those in need and those who are less fortunate. I am incredibly proud of our efforts during 2018 to support charities including National Autistic Society and Priors Court School.
Best wishes to you and your families over the Christmas holidays. Here’s looking forward to a great 2019.
