Dockwise carrying record number of boats

The 556-foot Super Servant 4, one of Dockwise Yacht Transport's four semisubmersible ships, will leave Newport, R.I., Tuesday packed with a record 50 cruising and racing boats valued at $41 million.

The ship will head to Freeport, Bahamas, a newly added port of call for DYT, and unload eight of the vessels, then head to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, to offload the remainder of the boats.

"We are maxed out on this trip, not one inch of room to spare," said Ann Souder, DYT sales agent for the East Coast and the Caribbean, in a statement. "It's a huge operation to make it all happen, especially with a shipment of this size."

Souder said that while the recession may have halted demand, it has not affected the upward trend in yacht transportation between cruising destinations.
