Seven Star Transport
First, we had to wait patiently a couple of weeks around Male because the ETA changed many times, and we also wouldn’t simply take risks in the event of any type of feasible trouble.
Eventually, the vessel came on 6th of April, therefore we got a consultation to-be raised the 7th of April at 9.30 am. Once we reached the proper time, no body welcomed us. So we called the vessel on the VHF, together with solution ended up being “….wait….”.
We hung around most of the morning and much more last but not least we called the lockmaster. The solution was not precise, and also at 3.30 pm, we labeled as him once more, “Come back the next day early morning, at 8.00 am." – "But sir, we have an airplane tomorrow early morning, please do something before tomorrow morning….” Imaginable me personally.
Eventually, the functions started at 10.00 am, and completed at 2.00 pm. Great professionals, but extremely bad to talk to. Primarily, it depends on lockmaster (not the same in Male as in Marmaris), along with to bear in mind that they carry not merely ships but other kind of cargo as well.
Reaction from Sevenstar
Thank-you for asking us to discuss SY Meroe's report of these yacht transportation with us, this really is proper and true. I shall describe quite towards conditions, of quite difficult with some swell and tide running. This provides an extremely small running screen to lift the yachts out from the water.
Whenever we skip something or a good start is much more tough, it costs maybe not a couple of hours but an entire tide screen. This places most strain on the loadmasters and staff of this vessel to make all the slot machines as well as often ends up with little/too minimal communication towards the boat proprietors.
I apologise because of this but occasionally we can not provide the attention you want to provide additionally the customer desires to have.
All minor damages to the yachts that occurred during the last two deliveries have been given out entirely and fixed in great purchase. Form delay in loading of this hour Facility (got trapped in Indonesia loading climate sensitive and painful base cargo (no yachts) for over 10 days) every thing moved well.
Again thanks for asking our comments.

We recently transported our boat, BeBe, with SevenStar Yacht Transport. Our seek out a transport solution begun soon after we arrived in Cochin, Asia. Once in Cochin, we began to upgrade our "Piracy Chart" with all the final 3 months of activity. It absolutely was really evident that we are not planning sail the Indian Ocean because after upgrading our chart, we counted 13 times much more pirate assaults than the exact same period the prior 12 months.
Within a few days we discovered 2 in Cochin and 1 in the Maldives. He told us he will have the Maldives vessel head to Cochin and that there is enough space to weight 4 vessels on a ship that originated from Asia and would unload in Marmaris, Turkey. Many weeks passed away and 12 even more yachts expressed interest, with the bulk lying-in the Maldives and 2 in Sri Lanka. At this stage, the first transportation ship wouldn't work, nor the deviation of Cochin. We understood, naturally; and 4 yachts sailed from Cochin to Male, Maldives (1 even more had joined us in Cochin).
We were filled 30 days after our arrival in Male and about 10-15 days after the initial ETA when it comes to transportation ship, BBC EVEREST, in Male, Maldives. BBC EVEREST was on her behalf maiden voyage after having already been built in a shipyard in China. There have been about a 2-week delay within the shipyard completing and releasing BBC EVEREST.
SevenStar had never ever loaded in Male before, and BBC had never managed cargo in Male. The SevenStar loadmasters and riggers came a couple of days before BBC EVEREST. They attempted to get a dock to secure the transportation ship once we loaded and were told there had been none available. When BBC EVEREST appeared, SevenStar did their finest to weight the yachts; but had difficulties. There clearly was a swell available ship anchorage and lots of quick ferries taking a trip through the anchorage. This caused the yachts to move while being lifted because of the ship's crane that has been rigged with straps, like a travel lift straps. SevenStar requested the authorities in Male permission to weight during the night whenever almost all of the fast ferries will be in slot. The transport ship had lots of running lights in addition to capability to load during the night. The Male officials told SevenStar that evening running was only allowed while secured at a dock. SevenStar offered to spend whatever Male had been asking for a dock, but was again told not one had been available and that they couldn't weight at night. Sooner or later, and we also believe at great expenditure, BBC EVEREST was permitted to connect to a wharf at "garbage island' which can be where garbage that is not thrown into the water by the Male people is burned in available pits...BTW, Male charter boats toss their garbage into the ocean & most Male people believe nothing of throwing garbage and plastic refuse in to the water!
The loading proceeded with couple of difficulties after the ship was secured to the dock. In terms of we realize, the sole vessel that did actually sustain any harm during the whole running ended up being our boat, BeBe, which was packed while BBC EVEREST is at anchor. We had requested your loadmaster use the lifting points on deck of BeBe rather than the straps under the hull. Beneath the circumstances, we all conformed it was less dangerous; and it also ended up being. However, undergoing attaching the hefty metal cables to BeBe while she ended up being tied up alongside BBC EVEREST, a number of fast ferries caused BeBe to roll. The cables weren't however secure and moved the gelcoat in several places. Ends up it looked worse than it absolutely was. Directly after we removed the oil regarding the gelcoat kept by the cables, all ended up being good. The cables did damage 1 white plastic address on a mizzen shroud...less than $20.
The unloading ended up being very expert and even though we once more elected to use our deck-level lifting points with BBC EVEREST's big metallic cable, the cable did not touch BeBe's gelcoat now. We heard that another boat suffered some damage during transit...we have no details or any direct familiarity with this damage. But, needless to say, that is the reason SevenStar includes at no additional fee insurance coverage, which takes care of harm or loss in transportation.
We would recommend SevenStar and BBC EVEREST to any person wishing an excellent experience transporting their particular yacht.
