Reliance Yacht Management Presents New Shipping Routes to their Clients
- La Rochelle to Baltimore
- La Rochelle to Guadeloupe
- La Rochelle to San Diego
- Southampton to San Francisco
Dealers and yacht owners looking to deliver their European yachts by freight need to get a clear quote and know what you are paying for. It is difficult and almost impossible to compare quotes like for like when any additional costs to the freight service is not included or hidden in the small print.
Port handling fees
Can be a nasty surprise if they are not made clear from the start
Reliance Yacht Management is well know for it yacht deliveries with professional crews but what is less know is the options we supply to our corporate clients for freight services. For some years now we have providing shipping services across the Atlantic and more recently from Europe to the US West coast.
We have developed strong business relationships with all the specialist shipping lines and many of the small ones as well that enables us to negotiate competitive rates. But where we are able to offer the greatest value to our clients is where the freight is just one element of the service required by the client.
There maybe a regular shipping service from say from Genoa, Italy to Port Everglades, Florida which is fine if your yacht is already in Genoa and you only want it to go to Port Everglades. Reality is somewhat different. we can enable client to benefit from that regular service even though their yachts can originate from anywhere in the Mediterranean and be delivered onward to anyway. From Port Everglades that could be the Bahamas or the Florida Keys for example.
Reliance yacht Management is able to draw on the various elements required to provide a single proposal to clients for a multimodal service. Our clients include the world’s leading yacht dealerships in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. What makes them world leaders is that they good at what they do, and that is they sell, sell yachts, sell charters. The complex issues involved with dealing freight forwarders, yacht captains, cargo insurers, equipment suppliers, shrink wrapping and so on demands time.

Nautitech Open 46 Flo delivered
Last Atlantic Crossing Delivery of 2017 Completed
A BIG thanks to Captain Lionel Lebrenn and his crew for another successful delivery. Flo, a Nautitech 46 catamaran was collected from La Rochelle and delivered to her new home in the Grenadines where she will be available for charter. The care taken at every stage meant that Flo arrived in perfect condition and ready to start work.
Thanks also to Gregor at Aeroyacht for appointing Reliance Yacht Management to complete the delivery.
The Yacht was commissioned in La Rochelle, France and the crew joined soon after. A series of quality control and procedures and boat preparation was completed before they were ready to depart. Weather can offer particular challenges in Biscay in winter and finding the right weather window for departure is essential to make a safe start to the delivery. Searout provide weather routing support for the Atlantic crossing
As a new yacht, the engines are required to have their initial service carried out by an authorised dealer. This was carried out by Yacht Works in Cascais, near Lisbon. The technicians had access to the vessel’s positions reports and ready to start as soon as the boat arrived to minimise delays and costs.
The Client was able to monitor the progress of all their yachts on delivery through their on line Yacht Delivery Management Dashboard. This secure management system gives access to the latest position status, captain reports, photos and videos.
