Joule hauls boats of all shapes and sizes.

Celebrating its 65 year in business, Joule Yacht Transport, Inc., has expanded by opening a new terminal in Edgewater, Fla.

The new terminal is close to the interstate and is available as a secure drop-yard and has ample parking for tractor trailers. The property is fenced, lit and monitored with security cameras. Entry is provided through an electronic gate with individual security codes.

Joule Yacht Transport has its own fleet of trucks and trailers and works with owner-operators hauling boats throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company also offers hauling services for transporting vessels on their own trailers.

“Even though our company has been around for a long time, we still have to pay attention to what the market wants, so we have added another terminal to serve our customers better,” Matt Jensen, operations manager and grandson of founders Dick and Barbara Joule, said in a statement.

The new facility is managed by Shane Metts, a former Boston Whaler employee with more than 25 years of experience in shipping and loading boats. “We have to innovate and adapt to remain competitive,” he said in the statement. “By adding a terminal on the East Coast of Florida we can help reduce the time and expense on hauls of all types.”
