The Unique Heritage of DYT Superyacht Transport

Posted May 20, 2022 in Brokerage & New Build by Janine St.Denis

DYT Superyacht Transport traces its beginnings as far back as 1987 when the idea arose to convert heavy lift vessels previously used in a declining offshore bulk cargo market to support an interesting new concept of transporting yachts.

With a few very simple modifications, including the addition of sidewalls made from railway sleepers, the first semi-submersible carrier, Super Servant 6, was put into use transporting yachts from the United States across the Atlantic ocean to the Mediterranean.

Formerly Dockwise Yacht Transport, today DYT Superyacht Transport has since taken the idea of trans-oceanic yacht transport services and cultivated the concept of superyacht transport by adding cutting-edge carriers to its fleet. Furthermore, the brand is continuously serving the needs of its customers and adding destinations of great value to those within the yachting community.

In 2021, the company’s second purpose-built semi-submersible carrier, motor vessel Yacht Servant, was delivered and subsequently put into service.  Along with her sister ship, motor yacht Yacht Expres, DYT has added more capacity to its fleet. DYT is truly dedicated to its customer base. The sole purpose of the brand is to continue its dedicated service, specifically ensuring superyacht transport timing is right for sought-after events for those within the superyacht community.

DYT Superyacht Transport’s on-time service has its clients arriving in destinations in the western Mediterranean to enjoy a full summer season with return sailings to the Caribbean and United States East Coast for the winter. For those superyacht owners with broader and possibly more adventurous ideas on their minds, DYT offers an annual transport to the beautiful  South Pacific, which includes locations such as Tahiti, Australia, and New Zealand.

The ideals and commitment to innovation of DYT Superyacht Transport remain much the same as they were in 1987.  Having transported thousands of yachts over the company’s 30-plus year existence, they rely on our heritage to guide us forward.
