Peters & May is excited to announce the launch of a brand-new stevedoring company, Yacht Stevedore Solutions, which is based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Fully licenced as of the 25th of January 2022, YSS provides a unique service as the only company to completely specialize in yacht handling and logistics in Port Everglades.

With its focus trained solely on the loading and unloading of vessels onto and off cargo ships, YSS will be responsible for every aspect of these processes, including the receiving, lifting, and securing of yachts and boats in every size.

Current Managing Director of Peters & May US Matt Penfold, will head up the new company. His accumulated experience will ensure that customers' yachts are transported in the most timely, efficient, and professional manner, with the maximum of expertise and the minimum of fuss.

Introducing the new company Matt Penfold explains. "As Peters & May, we have been shipping motorboats and sail yachts in and out of Port Everglades for more than 20 years. Given the increased demand for our shipping services, we felt it was also helpful to use our experience and skills to ensure the handling of this unique type of cargo is also in the hands of experts. The idea of YSS was born, and we are now very excited to open up this new chapter."

Using the most robust and rigorously checked cranes, slings, shackles, and other cargo-handling equipment available to load and discharge customers' vessels, YSS can provide bespoke yacht transport solutions unmatched by P&M's competitors.

Chris Perez is named Operations Director for YSS. He adds, "Our industry has been so closely enthralled with 'Stevedoring' that it was a bit of a surprise no one has attempted this before. It feels good knowing we are the first of its kind and it is extremely exciting to show what we are capable of as a company."

Simon Judson, CEO of Peters & May welcomed the new company saying, "YSS will be a very valuable resource in support of P&M's operations. Our customers will have the reassurance of knowing that their precious yachts are being looked after by flexible, highly trained and specialised stevedoring staff."
