Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for certain equipment as well as careful arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully prone to damage as well as valuable load. Possible damages (which can be quite easy to get) could badly lower the boat’s value. This is why it would be smart to hire an experienced hauler to transport a yacht – his knowledge as well as skills will serve as warrant that your yacht will safely arrive at its destination.

Still even if you hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations personally. First of all, check the exact size of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always safer to measure the yacht yourself, because even minor disparities in size can make shipping harder and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat must be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length does not include any attachments, like an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, usually in the middle of the vessel.

Remember that taking the right dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the shipping can occur – because there are countries where the loads above a particular length are not allowed on the road in some times of a day.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). In case you choose to get help from a transport provider, you do not need to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. When searching for a right hauler, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your boat in shipment.

The price of yacht transportation largely hinges on the dimensions of the boat and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If your boat may be shipped in varying atmospheric conditions, the transport provider must secure it properly, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
