Wow what a month. Just carried out a pre - purchase survey, sea trials and delivery in Italy on a Solare Blade 42. First visit was for the survey and sea trials that went well. A couple of weeks later we were requested to carry out the delivery. What made the delivery different is that the motor yacht was being shipped to Australia for the client. The delivery was from Talamone to Vado Ligure up the coast. We stopped at Lerici for the night on the way (La Spezia) Staff at the yacht club are really helpful and is a beautiful spot with good restaurants. Vado ligure was the final port but we were requested to stay in Savona marina for customs and paperwork. Another nice place with plenty to do.Again friendly marina staff and very helpful. First trip we flew into Rome and the second for the delivery we flew into Genoa. If your thinking of shipping a vessel it is always well worth using a ships agent, they have local knowledge and carry out all the paperwork required to make a smooth shipping experience for the client. A big thank you goes to all involved.
