Dockwise makes grand entrance in Fort Lauderdale

The 686-foot Yacht Express draws attention. But when the flagship of Dockwise Yacht Transport’s fleet pulled into Fort Lauderdale Monday with a record-breaking cargo of yachts valued collectively at more than $270 million, it was a sight to see.

Dockwise transported 19 luxury yachts to the port, and some of them are scheduled for display this week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The largest was the 190-foot superyacht Mi Sueno, which loaded on Yacht Express Oct. 6 in Genoa, Italy. It had just returned from the Monaco Yacht Show and will be attending FLIBS.

Several of the yachts on Yacht Express have shipped with Dockwise multiple times, including the 163-foot Casino Royale and the 160-foot Odessa (four times each), the 161-foot Zoom Zoom Zoom (seven times) and the 132 foot motoryacht Miss Rose.

Fort Lauderdale-based Dockwise Yacht Transport specializes in the maritime transport of private luxury yachts and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dockwise Ltd.
