MBM Prestige 350 arrives in the UK – courtesy of COAST 2 COAST
06th Aug 2013
Friday 13th – unlucky for some, but not for MBM’s new Prestige 350! Transport company COAST 2 COAST arrived early at the Les Herbiers HQ and main factory for Prestige to collect the new BLUE FIN. By midday she was on the road travelling through the countryside and villages of France destined for the Channel port of Cherbourg and the overnight ferry to Poole.
Saturday 14th – after clearing the UK border the COAST 2 COAST truck and trailer head up the A31 towards Southampton. She has a slot to unload at Ancasta’s yard in Port Hamble; Hamble Yacht Services. She arrives mid morning and is quickly positioned under the travel hoist to be relieved of her precious cargo, allowing the COAST 2 COAST truck to depart for her next job: a Prestige 500 destined for the Cote d’Azur!
Meanwhile, the 350 is blocked off ashore and unwrapped ready to enter the Ancasta commissioning process on Monday morning.
Return in a week’s time to find out more about the next stage of the MBM Prestige 350 journey.
