A recognized specialist
The Dutch company Sevenstar Yacht Transport is part of the Spliethoff group, owner of numerous multi-purpose vessels. This activity allows it to optimize the use of ships by transporting pleasure boats on deck, while offering regular lines to customers. The group also took over the operation of Dockwise's two former semi-submersible vessels via its subsidiary DYT.
Sevenstar Yacht Transport, well established at European level, offers regular monthly and weekly lines in season between Northern Europe or the Mediterranean to the Caribbean and the East Coast of the United States. The company carries boats from 8 m to 70 m on deck. A dedicated service offers container shipping management for small units.
Export insurance for the nautical industry
70% of the boats built in France are destined for foreign markets. The tricolour nautical industry is one of the first in the world. It is therefore logical for Sevenstar Yacht Transport to establish itself in France to capture the export logistics market of major construction sites, where the company is still little present.
In addition to professionals, Sevenstar Yacht Transport wishes to develop the offshore sailing yacht transport market. Matthieu Le Bihan's experience in his former LogSail company should be valuable. The transport offer is also aimed at private pleasure boaters who want to change their navigation basin.

An office and a French stopover
To support its development, Sevenstar Yacht Transport has just opened an office in the Lorient submarine base. It will work in partnership with the Monaco agency for the Mediterranean and the branch of the Dutch parent company, Racing Yacht Logistics, specialising in ocean racing.
A regular call in a port on the French Atlantic coast is quickly envisaged to offer professionals the most competitive service possible.
