DYT, formerly known as DOCKWISE YACHT TRANSPORT was founded in 1987. The first sailing was under the name of Wijsmuller, a shipping company that specialized in heavy, off shore bulk transport and tugboats. During the oil crisis of the 80’s, Wijsmuller was forced to find innovative new markets for a strong decline in bulk transport. Modern yacht transport as we know it was discovered.
In 1987 the first yacht carrier, Super Servant 6 was launched. With a few technical adjustments this submersible yacht carrier was equipped with side walls made with railway sleepers. These walls allowed for the necessary protection and safety needed to shelter the yachts during transport. The company, led by Jeff and Gina Last, who with their personal touch and creative approach, developed the idea of an on-time transport schedule and took the company to the unique position as the preferred yacht transport provided worldwide.
Today, the foundation for this unique and safe method of shipping dedicated to the transport of yachts can be seen in the modern 658 feet Yacht Express with her high rising side walls.
DYT Yacht Transport’s mission is to serve the global yachting community with safe, reliable, and on-time Superyacht transport to the most sought after destinations in the world. True to our beginnings in 1987, whether it’s the South of France or the hottest sport fishing destinations in the Pacific, DYT is looking to broaden the horizon of yacht transport.
