Transport of a cruise vessel from Kedzierzyn-Kozle to Lake Windermere

Van der Vlist were proud to be involved in the transport of the Swift, a new Day Cruise Vessel for Windermere Lake Cruises.

The 34-metre long vessel was transported over 15 truck loads from Kedzierzyn-Kozle in Poland to Lake Windermere in the UK on behalf of the manufacturer Damen Shipyards.

The sections of the MV Swift were individually constructed in Poland, ready for transportation to England. It was important to take into account both the height of the cargo for transport through mainland Europe as well as width of the pieces and the running height of the trailers due to the narrow roads on the final approach to the delivery  site.

The project was over seen by our Dutch office and supported by our Polish office to supply the road transport and the UK office to provide the route surveys, permits, escort vehicles as well as arranging cranes for offloading.
