Boat Shipping Company

The boat delivery company that you hire for shipping the yacht should guarantee a number of things such as the safety of your asset, quality and reliable services etc. So, you can stay assured about the fact that your product will reach your doorstep safely without any scratches or bruises.

The best part about hiring a shipping company is that they offer you cash on delivery service. Meaning, you will need to pay a part of the payment before the shipment, and the remaining, a larger portion after it is delivered, at your doorstep. You will have to pay them only if you are satisfied with their service. From the time they load your boat and till they offload it at the needed destination, you can stay assured that your asset is in excellent hands.

Preparing Your Yacht for the Journey

Just the way you prepare your kids or even pets for long journeys, you should prepare your boat for safe transportation. Here are some steps of prepping your boat for the transportation.

  • Empty the water and fuel tanks
  • Get rid of the covers of canvas
  • Disconnect all the batteries and external wires

Once your boat is prepared by the professionals for the transportation, the experts will conduct a thorough test of boat and provide you with a detailed report. This will help you to conduct an investigation on the boat after it is delivered.

Sophie’s Floating Beach Bar – A Caribbean Gem

When you set foot on the pristine beaches of the Caribbean, you simply fall in love with it like no tomorrow. At least that is what we experienced in our trip to the Caribbean Islands. The highlight our trip was discovering Sophie’s Floating Beach Bar! No matter how hard we tried, we always found our feet taking us to Sophie’s Bar, now our officially favorite Caribbean bar. Peter & Sophie, a happy couple that own this one of a kind bar, exuded nothing but warmth and hospitality.

Their lovely floating bar also offered 2 modest rooms for anyone one interested in experiencing the actual Caribbean shacks. We were simply swept off our feet the moment we stepped aboard. But the main attraction of this bar is the unimaginable flat price of $5 for any drink you lay your eye on! What else could one ask for? We spent the entire day languishing in the sun, trying to get that perfect tan while Peter motored his floating bar through the Caribbean expanse.

Sunburst Trail – An Event Not to Be Missed

The organizers had arranged cocktails and dinner that was served from 6:30PM onwards. With the world’s most famous skyline on one side & a chilled glass of Champagne on the other with cool breeze in your hair.

What more could a city dweller ask for? The best part about the Sunburst Trail cruise is that there are no prior reservations needed, seating is on first-come, first-served basis. Hop aboard our next sailing event for a peaceful and, picturesque sunset, with fun, food and some interesting company.
