Please beware of the two following companies:
1) Yacht Exports
2) Ocean Trade Lines
They both operate under the same ownership dba known as Global Relogistics.
Their address is: 5337 Orange Drive, Davie FL 33314
Beware of their scam ! They are notorious for taking deposits from innocent customers who want to ship their yachts worldwide and not perform. When a client asks for their money back as a result of Yacht Exports not honoring the terms of their contracts for shipment, they use stalling tactics and intimidation, which results in innocent customers either settling for hefty cancellation fees or losing their money outright.
A few of these clients were personal friends of mine. Please see below the names of major people in the yachting industry who were recently taken advantage of by Yacht Exports and Ocean Trade Lines. Contact them direct so they can share their negative experiences with anyone thinking of doing business with Yacht Exports or Ocean Trade Lines !

I have been a yacht broker for many years and never have seen such a dishonest, arrogant, manipulative shipping company such as Yacht Exports and Ocean Trade Lines. Please beware and save yourself the headache and anguish they would put you through. I urge you not to do business with them. They will take your money and run!
