The trucks have been on the road again after the New Year going to the London Boat Show with 2 sailing yachts and bringing them back to Cornwall after the show finished.

One driver then went to Lymington to load a boat to be delivered to Pollenca in Mallorca for our customer. He re-loaded in Alcudia, Mallorca and boarded his ferry back to Barcelona before driving up through Spain and France. He drove to Cherbourg and boarded his next ferry to Poole, England, and drove onto Cornwall to deliver the boat for our customer in Mylor, Falmouth.

The other driver has also been delivering boats in Europe and England, from Kent to Falmouth and onto Holyhead and on a ferry to Dublin, Ireland, where he drove to Valentia Island to load a cruiser. He then drove to Rosslare and onto another ferry to Cherbourg, France. After arrival he drove down France to La Trinite Sur Mer and unloaded the Cyclone 30 for our customer.

Our next trip was to La Rochelle, France, where we loaded a sailing yacht and two masts for our customer which was delivered to Hamble, Hampshire.

A large motor cruiser was loaded in Gweek, Cornwall and driven to Plymouth, Devon to unload. Because of the over width size of the cruiser an escort vehicle was required to escort the truck to Plymouth to warn on coming vehicles that a large load was on the way.

A week later another large motor cruiser was loaded in Plymouth and had to be delivered to St Germans, just over the Tamar bridge into Cornwall. This load also required an escort vehicle for the journey. 

These trips may only be short distances but take a long time to complete. The boat takes longer to crane onto the trailer and strapped down securely and safely before the slow journey begins with having to wait in many places along the route to let on coming vehicles drive past safely when the road narrows or there is an obstruction. The truck driver keeps in touch with the escort vehicle driver at all times to be warned of road movements and conditions ahead so a safe delivery of the boat is achieved.
