Yacht ExpressThe Yacht Express (IMO: 9346029, Port of Registry: Willemstad, Dutch Antilles) is purpose-built with a semi-submersible dock bay that allows yachts of any size to be safely floated on and off as cargo. This 209 metres long, 32 metres wide vessel has a 165 x 31 metres loading deck for luxury motor and sailing yachts. For propulsion the vessel is equipped with two azimuth thrusters with a combined power of 10,200 KW.

The Yacht Express is owned by Dockwise Yacht Transport, based in Fort Lauderdale, USA, a group company of Dockwise Transport B.V., which is located in Breda, The Netherlands and considered the global leader in maritime transports of extremely large and heavy cargoes. She was christened on May 24, 2007 (an auspicious date that will bring luck to anything new according to the Chinese traditional calendar) at the Yantai Raffles Shipyard, China.

The Yacht Express has entered the Port of Rotterdam this morning and will be berthed at the Waalhaven, Rotterdam. There she will unload the two inland casco's she has transported from China.
