Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat calls for particular machinery as well as thorough arrangements. A sailing boat is a very delicate as well as valuable load. Possible damages (which can be quite easy to get) may seriously lower the yacht’s financial worth. That’s the reason it is best to hire skilled hauler to ship a sailing boat – his experience as well as skills will serve as insurance that your yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nevertheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you still need to do a few things personally. Firstly, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even small differences in values can make the transport harder and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when searching for a transport provider for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht must be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length should not contain any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the vessel.


Remember that taking the right dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its price. Moreover, it can also influence the time the transportation may occur – as in some countries the loads above a certain length are not allowed to be transported by the road in some times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a yacht is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). If you decide to get help from a hauler, you do not have to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will take care of that. While looking for a proper hauler, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the size of the boat as well as how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If there is a risk your boat will be transported in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider must secure it properly, and it could raise the price of the shipment.
