FJT LOGISTICS ships Ocean Cruising Trimaran from Vietnam to New Zealand
TJ LOGISTICS, Pangea Member in New Zealand, has shipped a brand-new Ocean Cruising Trimaran constructed from light weight carbon fiber in Cat Lai, Vietnam to Auckland, New Zealand. The Trimaran departed from Tan Cang – Cat Lai port, near Ho Chi Minh city, which is the biggest and most modern container port in Vietnam.
The Trimaran was secured with a special tailor-made wood support saddle and shrink-wrapped for protection against damages during the whole journey. The packed Trimaran measured 18m long, 4.8m wide and 5.33m high, with a total weight of 10,000kg.
The boat was stowed under deck on a platform of 8 40’ Flat Racks and departed on 25th July. It was shipped from Vietnam via Kaohsiung Port in Taiwan and finally arrived at Auckland on board M/V OOCL Savannah on 18th August.
Once the Trimaran arrived to Auckland, FJT LOGISTICS coordinated the lifting and discharging operations as well as the delivery with a low bed truck to Silo Park boat yard, where the boat will be assembled and rigged. After sea trials are completed the ultimate Trimaran will begin cruising in the ocean.
