Starclass, owned by Jan te Siepe, started moving yachts on cargo-vessels 29 years ago. The company has the reputation for punctual and hassle free yacht transport with geared carriers and certified cradles.
Starclass is the carrier and not a booking agent or broker. We do use a network of exclusive booking agents, who also give all services needed such as custom clearance, finding a berth etc. This makes us a “one stop shop” for all your yacht transport requirements.
We advise you on the best transport possibilities, dates and prices.
You are given instructions on how to avoid possible risks and problems during transport. We supply shipping cradles, prepare all the paperwork. We supply a loadmaster to protect your interest in the loading port and to assure a safe loading without damage.
If we cannot move your yacht ourselves we work together with other reliable shipping companies at competitive rates and with our usual good service.
Transport and P & I insurance can be organized by us. A P & I insurance is a 3rd party liability insurance. This liability insurance is very important and with Starclass this coverage is standard.
Mediterranean Yacht Transport service:
Since two years we run a punctual monthly service within Europe, exclusive for yachts.
The journey starts in Bremerhaven and Rotterdam. We stop on demand in Poole, Gibraltar, Alcudia, Nice, Malta, Athens, Istanbul and Split. From there we start our return voyage back up North.
Feel free to use us as a hop on/hop off service.
So you can spend one season in the South of France, next season in Croatia or Turkey.
Many of our clients want to start or end their season at the Cote d Azur. Therefore we made Nice our main-port. This beautiful boutique port gives us full cooperation and is only 10 minutes from Nice airport.
We gladly arrange a berth for your yacht in the port, awaiting the carrier.
Another new service we launched is a complimentary delivery service for yachts. When you are not able to bring the yacht yourself we can help you out with the delivery of your yacht to the carrier.Our loadmaster/captain sails your yacht to the marina or alongside the carrier within a distance of 20 miles from the loading of off-loading port.
