O&S Shipping perform unprecedented operation on Super Servant 4

While you were busy planning your Santa Marija getaway, the team at O&S Shipping were performing an impressive operation on an even more impressive superyacht down in Birzebbuga.

On August 14, Malta played host to the Super Servant 4, which came all the way from Southampton to perform a float out operation at the Malta Freeport. The six-hour operation was a first for the island as, instead of discharging the cargo with cranes, the vessel was submersed into the sea to simply allow for the cargo to be floating in – thus becoming a floating dock of sorts.

Serviced by O&S Shipping, the Super – 169 by 32 metres, with the capacity to submerge up to 20 metres into the sea – is yet another feather in the company’s cap, which only recently also helped facilitate the equally notable Sunseeker Motor Yacht Fleur. But the company’s track record over the past year alone encompasses some 60 yachts – the bulk of which are, in fact, superyachts – and the estimates are set to be even bigger for 2016.

The company’s growing success can be attributed to a variety of factors. All yachts need to be registered under a particular country’s flag, and Malta’s own comes with a clear set of benefits. Chief of these being attractive tax incentives… to say nothing of the small matter of Malta being the largest flag registration in the EU.

But even this auspicious industry climate, O&S remain ahead of the curve, being the only company offering an extensive array of services in the field. Ensuring global connections for all their clients, the company offers container services, water-to-water transport and float in and float out services for sailing yachts, motor yachts, work boats and commercial vessels.

O&S Shipping’s operation with Super Servant 4 – involving as it does not only the company’s own high-quality and flexible approach to industry needs, but also the full collaboration of port authorities – is proof positive that stakeholders are fully committed to ensuring that the local logistics industry is truly taking advantage of the sound infrastructure available, and deliver a world-class service to all its users.
