Guernsey Yacht Export

Oceanskies were pleased to welcome the newly delivered 42.2 metre superyacht “Alive” built by Heesen Yachts to Guernsey this week for export and customs clearance. Following clearance in Guernsey the vessel then moved to the shelter of St Helier, Jersey to shelter from a sustained period of gale force weather.

Oceanskies is a leading yacht registration and yacht documentation consultancy specialising in the registration of yachts of all sizes at all of the main yacht registry jurisdictions as well as providing a full offshore yacht crew employment and payroll agency through Oceanskies Crew.

Heesen Yachts are a leading Dutch shipyard building custom super yachts between 34 and 75 metres in length.

The bold exterior lines of “Alive” have been created by Frank Laupman from Omega Architects, who is also responsible for her interior design. Laupman has created a new bow design that combines a lower hull profile, and matches sea keeping behaviour with a relatively short overall length.

Equipped with under water foil (technically called Hull Vane®) “Alive” represents a dramatic advancement in performance. The sub-sea wing harnesses waves to produce power; this combined with the fast displacement hull and conventional diesel engines produce remarkable results. This has been proven during independent research conducted by Van Oossanen Naval Architects at two of the world’s most respected hydrodynamic laboratories: Wolfson Unit and Marin.

“Alive” is 35 per cent more efficient than any other yacht of her size and 35 per cent less power is needed to produce almost 16 knots top speed in flat sea conditions. With an exceptional range of 4.000 miles, over 750 miles come free of charge thanks to her remarkably frugal fuel consumption that is 30 per cent less than on a conventional displacement yacht.

Duncan Swanson of Oceanskies believes that the Channel Islands have a lot to offer superyachts, their owners and crew saying, “Guernsey and Jersey have always been a popular stop over for yachts clearing in and out of the VAT territory of the EU and for cheap fuel”. Duncan added, “we are actively not only promoting the islands as a place to make technical stops but increasingly we are seeing more superyachts visiting with guests onboard as there is a growing trend to leave the traditional cruising grounds of the Mediterranean to explore new areas.”

Adrian Ogier of Oceanskies said “The visit of these large yachts can not only be a good thing for the economy of the Channel Islands but also their reputation as a destination for high net worth individuals and we hope to attract more to the islands in the future.”

Oceanskies has offices located in the heart of St. Peter Port harbour inside the Boatworks+ building alongside the main yacht refuelling berth. Yachts up to 50 metres in length can be accommodated on the fuel berth outside our window.
