Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat takes particular supplies as well as precise preparation. A yacht is an extremely prone to damage and expensive load. Any damages (which can be pretty simple to get) could really diminish the yacht’s financial worth. That’s why it would be best to hire a professional transport provider to transport a sailing boat – his experience and abilities will serve as insurance that shipped yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Nevertheless even if you hire a hauler to transport a yacht, you still need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the exact size of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always best to measure the boat yourself, because even slight disparities in values can cause the transport to be harder and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when looking for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat is measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length should not include any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it should be checked where the boat is widest, which usually means in the middle of the boat.


Remember that giving the transport provider the right size of the boat does not only affect the security of the shipment but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time the shipping can occur – because in some countries the loads above a particular length may not be allowed on the road in certain 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 the size of the boat). In case 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. When searching for a proper transport provider for the job, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a repayment if anything should happen to your boat in shipment.


The price of yacht shipment mostly hinges on the dimensions of the yacht and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If there is a risk your boat will be shipped in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler must secure it properly, which may raise the price of the transportation.
