Yacht transport over the Ocean

Hi,

Soon I would transport my motor yacht from Italy to Caribbean bya Sevenstar company and I have few questions.

It would be my first transportation and I would be also with a yacht on board. So is there any internet connection and phone range on the Ocean ?

What I should care about. What I should take with me and what I shouldn't.

Re: Yacht transport over the Ocean

Hi there. Are you travelling with the yacht aboard the sevenstar ship? Under normal circumstances no there would not be phone and internet at sea, however sevenstar may have facilities in place if they commonly carry passengers. I would get in touch with them and ask. I'm sure they have a much better idea of their facilities than anyone on this forum!

Yes I would go with sevenstar. Can you tell me what I should take care off when loading a yacht ?

Re: Yacht transport over the Ocean

Your best bet is to talk to Seven Star for both issues.

Most likely they won't have cheap high speed internet on the open seas.
