ZIM’s Special cargo team handled a unique shipment of a 100-ton, 92-foot (28-meter) long yacht, shipped on board C/V ZIM Ontario from Asia to the Port of Savannah.

The new barge crane, the Savannah Giant, was used for the first time during the discharge operation. The impressive yacht, estimated at $8 million, was built by Alexander Yacht builders of Kaohsiung and is destined for the Miami Boat show.

Lea Bogatch, ZIM’s President Americas, Canada & Caribbean Area, said: “This exceptional and expensive shipment was entrusted to the good care of the ZIM team. Our experts in the US and overseas have vast experience in handling unusual cargoes that need special attention and exceptional know-how.”

The crane was stationed alongside the Zim Ontario to make the lift from the vessel. The yacht was taken off the vessel and transported in the cradle from Garden City Terminal down river to Ocean Terminal and discharged into a slip to take advantage of increased security.

This was the first lift made with the Savannah Giant since it became part of the GPA operation in August.
