Sevenstar Yacht Transport, the leading provider of yacht transportation services worldwide, subsidiary of the Spliethoff Group, the largest shipping company in the Netherlands, has appointed Chris Jongerius in Phuket as its agent in Thailand.
Richard Klabbers, Managing Director of Sevenstar Yacht Transport announced: “Sevenstar’s presence in Asia is fast-growing with an increasing amount of yachts cruising the exotic waters of Southeast Asia. We are therefore pleased to nominate a highly service and safety oriented partner, Chris Jongerius, as our agent in Thailand.”
Chris Jongerius is the owner of the Andaman Sea Club (ASC), a well-known bareboat and skippered yacht charter company and winner of the 2011 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. ASC is located in Phuket, centre of the booming yacht scene of Southeast Asia.
“I am proud to be welcomed in the team of Sevenstar Yacht Transport,” said Chris Jongerius, “We have a reputation for excellent customer service in common with Sevenstar Yacht Transport. Together we are able to offer a unique package. As Asia’s yachting industry is quickly developing, this is a timely start and we are well positioned for the future.”
There are many advantages of shipping a yacht instead of sailing or motoring it across oceans. It saves time, manpower and, especially with ever-rising fuel costs, a substantial amount of money. It also decreases wear and tear, as well as engine hours. Certain risks are eliminated. Though it is neither a pleasant thought nor a regular occurrence, piracy and waterborne crime are not unheard of in many popular crossing routes. Another consideration is the wide variety of destinations worldwide; there is just not enough time to reach them all in a lifetime. Why not ship a yacht to the next cruising destination?
“Sevenstar Yacht Transport extends your horizon in a safe and cost-controlled way”, Chris concludes.
Sevenstar Yacht Transport is the world’s leading provider of yacht shipping services with a global network of destinations and a fleet of more than 100 independent carriers.
Andaman Sea Club Sailing Charters specialises in performance catamarans for bareboat and skippered charters for cruising and racing around Phuket, Thailand.
