|On June 30, 2011 we contracted with Yacht Path International, LLC to ship a 50â€™ yacht from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Jeddah, SA. On July 6, 2011 we wire transferred the payment for the voyage ($35,000.00) to Yacht Path International, LLC. At this time no ship had been nominated to carry the yacht to Jeddah. |
On July 13, 2011 at the end of the working day an email was sent from Yacht Path International, LLC to inform us that a ship had been located/ nominated to take the yacht to Jeddah. In addition, we received an email showing the loading schedule based on the shipâ€™s arrive in Port Everglades, Fl. The loading date would be July 20 or 22 and we were instructed not to make any travel plans until the ship arrived in Fort Lauderdale for loading. On July 14, 2011 we telephoned our representative Lauren Bowman and informed her that we would have to cancel the contract. On July 15, 2011, we formally cancelled our shipping contract for the Jeddah shipment due to a documentation problem. We advised Yacht Path International, LLC that we would ship the yacht with them, once we could obtain the missing documents. In the mean time, we requested that the funds ($35,000.00) be returned to our account.
By mid August, we still had not received any refund. We continued to request the return of our monies about twice a week. On August 29, 2011, we contacted Lauren Bowman again via email and telephone about are refund and the next sailing date to the Port of Genoa. Genoa was now are new destination for this yacht. Lauren said, we should contact the companyâ€™s account Denise Leonardo about the refund and she would email us the next sailing date to Genoa. We contacted Denise Leonardo via telephone and email about the refund. She said, the information had been give to Dennis Cummings and that was all she could do about the issue.
Denise Leonardo told us that the company was moving to Fort Lauderdale from West Palm Beach but didnâ€™t know the location. We were now seriously concerned about recovering are refund and/ or getting are yacht shipped. We called to Lauren Bowman and she didnâ€™t know the new address of the company either and she was the outside representative for Yacht Path International, LLC.
It was now time to gather more information about Yacht Path International, LLC, so we contacted a reporter at Trident News about our problem with Yacht Path International, LLC. After our original contact with Trident News, Dennis Cummings the C.E.O. of Yacht Path International, LLC called and claimed that because we had cancelled the shipment, we were not owed any refund. We expect they had not paid the transport ship and claimed this was unfair enrichment on the part of Yacht Path International, LLC.
Dennis Cumming replied that he would ship the yacht on the next ship to Genoa for us and we agreed to the same. A new contract was issued on September 23 and returned signed the same day. On September 26 a paid in full receipt for the shipping fee was sent to us from Yacht Path International,
LLC for the Genoa sailing. The new ship was loading on September 28th and we would finally be shipped to Genoa. But after watching the ship load for two days and waiting are loading turn. We were informed by Kevin Cummings that a mistake had been made on the deck plan and we would not be loaded as planed but would be loaded on the next ship to Genoa. In the meantime Kevin Cumming said that Yacht Path International, LLC would take care of the dockage and captainâ€™s fees until the next ship arrived for loading.
On December 7, 2011, Dockwise Transport had a ship to Genoa and Yacht Path International, LLC promised to ship us on Dockwise, if no other transport ships were available. We called Kevin Cummings on December 2, the loading manager and the brother of Dennis Cummings and part owner of Yacht Path International, LLC about shipping us on Dockwise and the loading time. Kevin Cummings text me back that he was working on it and was presently receiving the document from Dockwise. We called Dennis Cumming about the same matter and left a message with no call back. On the morning of December 6, we called Dockwise directly and asked if they knew anything about our shipment. They said they had sent out the document to Yacht Path International, LLC on December 2 and again on December 5 but have not received any payment and that it was now to later to change the float plan to accept our yacht.
WE ARE STILL WAITING IN FORT LAUDERDALE FOR YACHT PATH INTERNATIONAL, LLC TO SHIP THE YACHT AS CONTRACTED AND PROMISED.
So the story continues; the service from Yacht Path International, LLC has been simply lip service. If you have a story about this company, please post it on for everyone to read.
|this is no surprise! Especially if they dont pay their own suppliers and have sailings delayed!!!|
I can confirm that they have a case open with a Maltese company whereby a confirmed bill by Kevin Cummings has been delayed for more then 8 months now!
Each week they promise to pay, and yet no money into account...Not to be trusted.
They even recieved that they have financial difficulties...
I will not receomment this company to anyone who wants to transport yachts nor any agent to support them into any port
All the dicey comments come from Director Kevin Cummings and CEO Dennis Cummings.They even confirme funds sent...and nothing is recieved!!!
Would you trust a company like this especially when the dicey moves come not from an employee but from the owners themselves!!
|THEY DO TAKE THE MONEY OR THE SERVICE AND RUN!!!|
BEWARE ANY AGENT OR CUSTOMER DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE
|Oh my, where do I start. On May 10, 2012, Yacht Path received a duplicate payment for the transport of a vessel. The payment was sent twice because of an obstruction with the escrow account. Pressure from Yacht Path resulted in the owner sending payment to ensure reservation, and escrow releasing a payment as well. Yacht Path acknowledges receipt of both payments but has yet to return the funds. Here we are more than two months later and neither Dennis Cummings or anyone else will not return any phone calls, let alone any money.|
Issue number two; Upon release of the vessel, two fenders and two lines were missing. Replacement of these items is $500. Third and final issue, Yacht Path told us to come down the day before offload for paperwork adding special travel expense of $120, but upon arrival, no agent was there and we were told to come back in the morning.
I cannot make it any clearer... Stay away from this company.
|I m writing you from Piraeus-Greece.My company name is EUROTRANS INT/NAL FREIGHT F/DING.|
Suppose that we are one of the YACHT-PATH/Dennis Cummings' VICTIM.
We had a fishing boat to be transported from LAVRION-GREECE to MUSCAT/OMAN, on January 2012.
We have been forced for contract. We remitted the TTL freight usd 52.500, --. They cancelled vsls' call twice.
we claimed for the freight refund and till know they are playing with us.
i m very curious to know if the the USA is a safe country and the legality they want to impose to other weakest
countries is valid for them internally or not. This big crooks called YACHT-PATH/DENNIS and KEVIN CUMMINGS fishing victims through INTERNET and International publication system.They are using a unprofessional profile, sending SHIPS' SCHEDULES on monthly basis with FAKE NAMES OF CONVENTIONAL VESSELS to/from certain commercial ports related to the BOAT AND YACHT TRANSPORT.
suggest USA / FLORIDA prosecutors, immediately, must take over, for the necessary investigations for
this HAUNT AND THE CROOKS INSIDE. It seems that they are not care and they are not afraid from nobody which, automatically, make me suspicious to think that they covered properly by local authorities.
IMPORTANT : transport contract signing by YACHT-PATH as agent on behalf of UNITY SHIPPING LINES Inc.. which acting as carrier. By this they are securing that freight value has to be remitted to the UNITY which has JURISDICTION place LONDON U.K.(out of USA). Goes without saying that both companies, officially OWNED BY THEM. Who ever wants to contact me he can do through : E-mail address// [email protected]// phone : 0030 6932311333.
|I think I may be in trouble as well. I had a boat ready for transport in Lavrion, Greece. Twice "nominated" vessels passed our boat by. We informed Yacht Path that after months of waiting that we would unfortunately have to find another shipper.|
I had a very difficult time contacting Kevin Cummings. I asked him to call me on my cell, and he called my office. He has said that he will be refunding the money that was for the transportation that never happened.
My lawyer checked into Yacht Path. It is a nightmare of different companies, and as others have noted, is under U.K. law. So, if you want to get serious you better find a admiralty lawyer in the U.K.
I'm waiting to see a check.
