In conjunction with its Australian agents Aurora Global Logistics and the newly located Peters & May Fort Lauderdale office, Peters & May will be launching its first part charter sailings to Australia. The first sailing will leave from the Mediterranean to the East Coast of Australia and the second from East Coast of the USA to the East Coast of Australia.
Over the past year, Peters & May has noticed a significant increase in enquiries for this route; this demand combined with the well-established partnership that it holds with Aurora Logistics, has prompted the scheduling of this new service.
Robert Blades, global sales and marketing director commented, “We successfully perform sailings throughout the year from a variety of global destinations and we are excited to work with Aurora to add this route to our portfolio of premium part charter sailings. Due to the increased demand for this type of charter service to Australia from both Europe and EC US, we are confident these services will become annual successes for both Aurora and Peters & May”
The first vessel is due to start loading in Palma, Spain at the end of September, it will then make its onward journey to Genoa, Italy and then on to the East Coast of Australia. The second sailing will follow shortly after, loading in Fort Lauderdale at the end of September/beginning of October.
Jason Roberts, marketing director of Aurora Logistics added, “We are pleased to be part of the Peters & May network and excited to offer the Australian marine industry a high level, part charter option. There are very few reliable international yacht transport services available in the trade routes between Australia, Europe and the USA, however with the implementation of these part charter sailings, both Aurora and Peters & May are able to offer alternative transport options for yacht owners, dealers, race yachts and commercial craft alike.”
