Boat transporting: a new UK agent

A harbour master of yesteryear, based at Pin Mill in Suffolk, once told a novice yachtsman who had asked him to deliver his 14 footer by sea to the Solent, to ‘put stamp on it, powst it’. Nowadays, of course, you can.

Peters & May announced at the Southampton Boat Show that they are to become the UK agent for Dockwise the international yacht transporters.

Boats can be shipped on their freighters from the Mediterranean to the BVIs and back for 280 pounds per square foot.
