Sevenstar Solves Space Shortage

You're looking at more than 60 boats loaded onto one of Sevenstar's ships in Savannah, Georgia. The occasion, earlier this month, was the first voyage the yacht-transport company was making on its new route between Savannah and Zeebrugge in Belgium.

Sevenstar added the route because of a shortage of space on transatlantic routes, particularly for boats up to about 40 feet, according to Richard Klabbers, the company's managing director. Both boat owners and boatbuilders were feeling the pinch. "Our response has been to set up special terminals at the load and discharge ports in order to make truck deliveries easier for clients," Klabbers adds.

The new service will involve monthly sailings; check Sevenstar's Web site for exact dates.
