Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat demand certain machinery as well as thorough preparation. A yacht is an awfully fragile and expensive load. Any damages (which are pretty easy to get) may badly impair the yacht’s financial worth. This is why it would be best to hire an experienced hauler to ship a sailing boat – his experience and skills will serve as insurance that shipped yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even small differences in values can cause the transport to be more demanding and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when searching for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht is measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length should not include any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, usually in the middle of the vessel.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the shipment but also its cost. Moreover, it can also influence the time the transportation can take place – because in some countries the boats above a certain size are not permitted on the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). In case you decide to get help from a hauler, you don’t need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will take care of that. While looking for a right transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your boat in shipment.


The cost of boat shipment largely depends on the dimensions of the boat and the length of the route. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions can cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it may alter the price of the transportation.
