At Port Everglades conducting a new yacht survey on a 100' Ocean Alexander Yacht shipped from Washington State on the deck of a 800' container ship.

The vessel was shipped via a large commercial container ship on a custom built welded steel cradle. The steel wire cables that help secure the yacht to the cradle are then cut with a torch by marine welders and the onboard container ship crane lifts the entire yacht by the sides of the cradle into the water on the outboard side of the ship.

The diesel engines are then started after the cradle sinks below the hull once placed in the water and the yacht floats away and is taken to a local marina for final fitting and commisioning. These inspections occur in phases.

The first phase was to inspect the hull and running gear to look for any damages from shipping or manufacturing flaws. The final phases will happen after the vessel has been fitted and the engines have been properly broken in (after about 20 hours of them running at various RPM ranges at differrent loads while underway).
