news-boat-import-2 Ocean rowing boat Avalon will shortly be embarking on an exciting expedition across 5000 miles of the Indian Ocean from Western Australia to South Africa. The challenge is being undertaken for 3 charities – MS Australia, Save the Elephant and Ubunya (South Africans Children’s Charity). This epic voyage takes courage and tenacity. On the ocean, a gruelling shift schedule is necessary so it means serious commitment and dedication from each man or woman.

But before making this momentous voyage, the boat first had to make it’s way from the UK to Geraldtown Australia. Platinum® Freight’s Western Australian Customs Clearance experts were engaged to ensure a smooth transition of the cargo and a timely clearance of the goods once in the country. Skipper Leven says that it is great to be ‘on site’ and was pleased to see the boat ‘looking surprisingly good after her long journey from the UK to Australia’.
