Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for certain machinery and precise arrangements. A yacht is a very fragile as well as expensive cargo. Possible damages (which can be pretty simple to get) could badly impair the boat’s value. That’s why it would be smart to search for help from skilled hauler to ship a sailing boat – his experience and skills will be your warrant that transported yacht will safely arrive at its destination.

However even if you hire a transport provider to transport a yacht, you still need to do a few things personally. First of all, check the exact dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even minor disparities in size can cause the transport to be more difficult and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when searching for a hauler 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 yacht length does not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it should be measured where the boat is widest, usually in the middle of the vessel.

Please, note that taking the right dimensions of the boat affects not only the safety of the transport but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time the transportation may take place – as there are countries where the loads above a particular length are not allowed to be transported by the road in some times of a day.

Of course, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you choose to get help from a hauler, you do not have 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, which will entitle you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your boat in shipment.

The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the size of the yacht and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions may cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider will have to secure it properly, which may alter the price of the shipment.
