TNL GAC Pindar Ltd, a joint venture between specialist marine leisure logistics services provider GAC Pindar and global freight forwarder TNL International, has delivered a 7.6 MT Stamas 363 motorboat from Georgia, USA, to Auckland, New Zealand.

The privately owned motorboat, which is 3.93 metres high and 12.58 metres long overall, was handled with care for its 15,000km voyage. Before being loaded onto a ship bound for Auckland at Savannah, Georgia, it was shrink-wrapped and cradled on a special mafi trailer.

Once the craft arrived in New Zealand, TNL GAC Pindar had to make special arrangements for the final stretch of its journey – by road from Auckland Port to its final destination at the dry stack in the city's Westhaven Marina. The motorboat had to be held in storage at port until it was allowed on its way, as local regulations impose restrictions on how and when such large out-of-gauge objects can be transported by road. By working closely with the port authorities and stevedores TNL GAC Pindar was able to negotiate a waiver of the extra storage fee and successfully deliver the boat. It also took care of all the related customs clearance and taxation procedures.

Richard Thorpe, Manager of TNL GAC Pindar - Australasia, says: 'The transportation of yachts and marine leisure vessels requires specialist solutions tailored to each individual case. It is extremely important that both the mechanical integrity of the vessel and its exterior are protected throughout the process. By combining the specialist experience of GAC Pindar and the local knowledge of TNL International here in Auckland, the motorboat was in safe hands throughout.'

TNL GAC Pindar is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand. It serves Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, providing a complete package of solutions including yacht transportation, superyacht services, air, sea and road freight, agency services and specialist superyacht bunkering.
