Transporter puts 150 footer in the holdMay 30, 2017 by Dorie Cox
Eng. Guido Ballini, left, and Capt. Mario Orsi watch as M/Y Tutto Le Marrané, a 151-foot yacht built by Leopard Yachts, is lifted onto M/V Industrial Guide in Fort Lauderdale. Divers also watch from the water in Port Everglades on May 9. The yacht, on its way to the Mediterranean, was the largest placed in a transport hold, instead of topside, with United Yacht Transport in the past five years, according to company Vice President Vadim Yegudkin.
Capt. Orsi had the height measured three times to confirm the yacht would fit. After being lowered into the hold, 1 foot of vertical space and 30 feet of horizontal space remained, said United Yacht Transport President Paul Haber. Photos by Dorie Cox
