    SAL handles Yacht shipment

    The port of Genoa, Italy is not only a popular destination for cruise ships, but also for yachts of all kinds and sizes. Throughout the past decades, our partner of the Project Logistics Alliance, SAL Heavy Lift, has become a specialist in transporting sensitive and complex marine cargo. This expertise was given proof when SALs MV Frauke was assigned to load seven yachts, a tender boat and a pontoon by Cigisped Middle East. A 240 t yacht, measuring 41.9 x 8.5 x 14 m, was not only the heaviest but also the largest piece of marine cargo for this one-of-a-kind shipment. Followed by the 200 t Damen stan pontoon, measuring 30 x 11.4 x 6m. The cargo was delivered to the United Arabian Emirates without any issues.

    Well done, SAL!
