CARIBS - USA ROUTE Seven Seas can be considered as true Caribbean carrier and has excellent performance record and solid schedules on this trade to move boats between Caribbean and USA. This route and trade is one of our niche trades and we have competitive rates for any yachts and boats which need to be moved North or South between USA and Caribbean. We started bringing our charter vessels to Tortola, Antigua and St Maarten at the end of 2017 to move multiple boats from Caribbean to USA. Initial demand for our vessels came in after devastation of Irma and Maria storms to move damaged boats to safety and ship yards. We brought 11 vessels in 2018 to Caribbean which is pretty much once per month. As we continued to bring ships and show up to load boats every month, our name and reputation as Caribbean carrier had grown amongst clients in the Islands and we established ourselves as one of the major and reliable yacht carriers on this trade.

As of today and for the foreseeable future, we plan to continue running regular vessels on this route and offer our clients flexibility of monthly schedules. We welcome all yachts and boats to board our vessels and to experience convenience and flexibility of our service.

Additionally, for damaged boats specifically, Seven Seas offers all in solution for organizing pick up of damaged boats in the Caribs, loading and delivery by ocean going vessels from Caribs to ship yards in USA and Europe.

After boat is purchased on auction or if it needs to be transported to change cruising grounds, Seven Seas can ship it to any destination from Caribbean cost effectively and offer turn key - all in solution to transport from auction site to repair facility, marina or shipyard.
