There’s never a dull day at Acclaim! Whilst many of our deliveries are neatly palletised or packaged, there are occasions when the freight is a little less ordinary… and no more so than in the recent case of a small yellow submarine which required transportation from the Isle of Wight to Sweden!
Having received an SOS from a fellow haulier, Acclaim sprang into action, arranging collection from Cowes-based maritime specialists, Red Ensign, before shipping it across the ‘sea of green’ (the Solent). By 7pm on the day of collection, the sub was safely on a vehicle and on its way, ‘sailing up to the sun’ of Sweden.
The submarine transported was a two seater, Amphibious Surface Water Craft, used for exploration above and below the surface of the water, both commercially and privately. Ideal for marine tours, whale/shark watching and filming documentaries, the sub offers passengers a breath taking 360-degree panorama of the undersea world during the day or night.
All in a day’s work! Someone should write a song about it…
