Jumbo-SAL-Alliance’s Fairmaster ferries full deck of yachts
A total of 13 yachts have recently been loaded onboard Jumbo-SAL-Alliance’s Fairmaster in Bari, Italy. The yachts with a weight ranging from 20 to 240 tonnes are loaded for Jumbo-SAL-Alliance’s customer Cigisped Yacht Transport.
Out of the 13 yachts, ten re destined for Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates while the remaining three will be delivered to Hong Kong. According to the AIS data, the vessel has already completed the first leg of its journey to Jebel Ali and has headed out to Hong Kong.
The company noted that fitting this number of yachts onboard with various weights, shapes and sizes is a puzzle. Many of the Jumbo-SAL-Alliance vessels and crews have been busy loading yachts in Italy together recently.
The yacht delivery follows Fairmaster’s deployment for Kuehne+Nagel and end client Havfram delivering three multi flow base templates (MFB) each weighing 239 tonnes from Tonsberg to Stord. Prior to that, Fairmaster completed a total of 37 trips for the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm project over a 12-month period, delivering a total of 141 monopiles with weights ranging from 775 to 1285 tons and diameters ranging from 8.3 metres up to 9.5 metres. The crews also delivered 131 transition pieces weighing 345 tons each with a 6.5 metre diameter.
Fairmaster is one of the two vessels from the K-class family, fitted with two 1,500-ton crane with a combined lift capacity of 3,000 tons.
