The city of Brisbane, capital of Queensland and Australia’s third most populous city, welcomed Dockwise Yacht Transport’s (DYT) Super Servant 4 in January when the 169.49m (556ft) electric orange semi-submersible ship berthed at Fisherman’s Island Terminal to unload a cargo of yachts worth a total of approximately US$35 million. It has been more than a year since the ship’s last trip there, when she had to be diverted to Sydney due to extreme flooding that devastated Brisbane and areas of Queensland.

DYT operates on a regular schedule to deliver private yachts and charter boats to cruising destinations around the world. Their ship Super Servant 4 submerges itself by pumping nine million gallons of water into ballast tanks. She departed Palma de Mallorca in December 2011 and made stops, including Florida and Costa Rica before reaching Brisbane. From Brisbane, she went to Auckland and then to Port Everglades before heading to Toulon.
