Despite the many global challenges facing the shipping and yacht transport industry, Cross Chartering Yacht Transport continues to break its own records.

With the significant pressures on the availability of coast to coast yacht transport in the United States, Cross Chartering Yacht Transport continues to stay ahead of the game with shipping trends.

Even while yachts continue to lose deck space aboard transport vessels to the more lucrative cargo market, Cross Chartering loaded its largest volume yacht transport in March, according to company president, Paul Haber. “As other carriers pull out of shipping yachts, we are stepping up our game,” he said. “The shipping market has become a different dynamic than it was a year ago. Yacht brokerages are booming and boats are flying off the shelf and they need to be moved around the world.”

With the of shortage of ships, supplies, and containers, as well as backed-up ports and global demand for cargo shipments, the price to transport these yachts has doubled since last year, he said. To combat these increases, as well as have the ability to continue to provide transport opportunities for its customers, Cross Chartering utilizes larger ships to add volume that optimizes the company’s Asian boat factory accounts that ship eastbound. “Nearly 90% of our business in the U.S. is the east to west coast route, as well as Asia,” Haber continued.

Cross Chartering is one of the only yacht transport carriers that has continued with a reliable track record of East/West ships and a full calendar since August. “All of our ships have been full and we have a backlog of boats to transport, even during the historically, off-season period from December to now,” Haber said.  The March transport out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale included several yachts up to 125-feet in length onboard the 635-foot AAL Newscastle.  With multiple stops on the way west, more vessels were added in Cristobal, Panama; Golfito, Costa Rica; La Paz in Mexico, and Ensenada, California.

Cross Chartering also services Victoria, BC, with offices in Plantation, Florida, and Antwerp, Belgium.
