Dockwise Ltd

Dockwise Yacht Transport to join forces with Ya...

Hamilton Bermuda, 29 July 2009. Dockwise Ltd. today announces plans
for its wholly owned subsidiary Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT) to
merge with Yacht Path International Inc. to create a new force in
premium yacht transport.

The combination of Yacht Path with DYT will create an enterprise
capable of transporting yachts of any size to any destination around
the globe and broaden the scope of services to any client, from
private owner and charter company to brokers and shipyards. Yacht
Path will contribute  its worldwide leadership in "Lift On/Lift Off"
transportation: the chief mode of transport for small to medium
yachts up to 80 feet, aboard ocean-going cargo and container
vessels.  DYT will bring a corresponding global leadership in "Float
On/Float Off" transportation for large yachts up to 200 feet on its
four submersible yacht carrier vessels. The combination of a reliable
fixed schedule between cruising playgrounds and the ability to add
extra voyages to new destinations with flexible tonnage will provide
yacht owners with increased options for their travels.

The market for yacht transport is a clear niche market with a strong
volume share of smaller yachts (<80ft) and the super yacht segment
(>80ft) representing around 25-30%. Demand for yacht transportation
services is mainly generated by yacht owners and charter companies
seeking expansion of their cruising grounds to benefit from two
seasons within one year (e.g. Mediterranean in the summer and
Caribbean in the winter). The market is mainly driven by the
increasing global fleet size, as a result of increasing wealth,
allowing for a growing charter market and development of new yachting
destinations around the world.

For the year 2008 DYT delivered revenues of approx USD 50 million,
and Yacht Path revenues of almost USD 27 million. End of 2008 DYT
employed 30 staff, Yacht Path had 11 employees at the same date. The
signed letter of intent provides that, after successful conclusion of
the due diligence investigation, the combination of the two
businesses will be effected through DYT's purchase of the entire
issued share capital of Yacht Path. The Yacht Path shareholder group,
including members of the current management team, will in that case
receive an initial cash consideration of USD 3 million and a final
payment of at least USD 9 million in 2012 subject to the achievement
of performance targets for the combined business. It is the intention
that current managers of both DYT and Yacht Path will take seats in
the management of the new combination.

"The merger of DYT and Yacht Path is an exciting step in the
evolution of a growing global niche market" said André Goedée, Chief
Executive, Dockwise Ltd. "The current recession, while temporarily
subduing demand, has not reversed the long-term upward trends in
yacht transportation between cruising destinations. The unified
company will be ideally positioned once favourable conditions return
and Dockwise will enjoy significantly increased market share.
Furthermore, the complementary market segments that each of the
parties brings to the merger will deliver strong marketing
