In case you missed it, here’s a little press release from back in December that we’re pretty proud of:
Aurora Global Logistics, in conjunction with Peters & May, is proud to have been
involved in the shipping and import clearance of the new 100-foot Supermaxi race
yacht, Comanche, which is set to debut in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race on
Possibly one of the most talked about entries for the 70th Anniversary Race, Comanche
was built to break monohull sailing records. Designed by Guillaume Verdier Yacht
Design/VPLP, to push the boundaries of technology with the ultimate goal of taking
line honours this year. She is spiced with Australian flavor, with her co-owner being
the former Australian supermodel, Kristy Hinze-Clark.
As the appointed Peters & May agent in Australia, Aurora played a pivotal role in
transport negotiations, import clearance formalities and discharge formalities for the
100ft Supermaxi, her 45 meter mast and several shipments of parts and accessories
required in preparation for her maiden event.
Contracts are also in place for her return journey to the East Coast of the USA following
the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
Kane Bygrave, Director of Aurora Logistics, said Aurora are pleased and honored to be
involved with the transport and logistics required to get a yacht such as Comanche to
the starting line of Australia’s most historical sailing event.
“There are very few experienced international yacht transport service providers
available in the trade routes between Australia, Europe and the USA, however in
conjunction with our network partners Peters & May, Aurora are able to offer a range
of reliable transport options for private yacht owners, dealers, race teams and
commercial craft alike.”
