Setting record time & making it look easy.
Badger was approached by a previous client needing a yacht transported from storage to Geneva Lake. The boat was newly built, mainly in the storage facility; once it was 90% built, the owner wanted it transported to the water to add the finishing touches, for an unveiling in June. This was not any other yacht; it was designed to look like an 1890 Lake Geneva steamboat. It is currently the largest boat on Geneva Lake. The yacht has state of the art computer controlled mechanical and electrical systems. In addition to sails, it is battery powered and driven by electric motors. It also has a gyro stabilizer to prevent the boat from rocking side to side. This project was also a testament to providing quality work that creates repeat customers. As our client put it, “Mel and his moving team set record time and made it look easy (we all know it wasn’t half as easy as they made it look).” Importantly, Heritage Movers also assisted us with this move; we are appreciative our expert colleagues who are willing to lend a hand!
