Catamaran on its way to Oman with GBS

Global Boat Shipping has this week announced that the catamaran Windcat 101 is on its way to Oman. The catamaran was loaded this weekend in Antwerp onto the "Rickmers Chittagong“, with Global Boat Shipping (GBS) arranging the transport of the 115 ton vessel to the Persian Gulf.

During the last three years the catamaran transported workers to and from the east coast of England to wind farm construction sites in the North Sea. In the future Windcat 101, which is 28 metres LOA, and has a 9.6 metre beam, will be used as a work boat off the coast of Abu Dhabi.

Manfred Müller, CEO of GBS commented, "As experts in worldwide yacht transport Global Boat Shipping is the ideal partner for transports of this kind.”

Christian van Hoorn, managing director of GBS added, “With our extensive practical experience in lift on/lift off transports of yachts worldwide, we are able to offer our clients a tailor made solution as we have proved in this case. We provide a complete package including stowage planning and the supervision of loading and discharging by our own staff”.

GBS has also recently joined forces with BBC Chartering. This gives GBS access to the fleet of one of the leading multi-purpose shipping companies, thus allowing them to offer fixed sailing schedules to and from the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and the Middle and Far East.
