Monster Moves Episode 5 - Ocean Odyssey
A team of movers must transport a fleet of bespoke racing yachts worth £8million 6,500km from the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe to France.
The huge yachts race across the rough Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean, in one of the most extreme sailing challenges in the world, the Route Du Rhum. Having crossed the finish line in one piece, some skippers decide it’s too risky to sail their yachts back. So they recruit a team of marine engineers to transport the fleet back to France.
It’s a huge challenge. The move crew decides to charter a colossal 30,000 tonne cargo ship for the job. But loading the delicate 50ft trimarans and monohull yachts onto the ships deck is fraught with danger. It’s an incredibly tight squeeze to fit all the yachts on board without damaging them. Storms delay the ships journey and tempers flair when the loading runs behind schedule.
Will the team get everything on board before the ship raises anchor?
