Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat requires certain equipment as well as precise arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully delicate and expensive load. Possible damages (that can be pretty easy to get) could seriously lower the yacht’s financial worth. This is the reason it would be smart to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will serve as warrant that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.

However regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the exact dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, as even minor differences in values can make the transport more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when looking for a transport provider for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht should be measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length shouldn’t contain any attachments, like an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it is checked at the widest point of the boat, usually near the middle of the vessel.

Remember that taking precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the shipment but additionally its price. More than that, it can also affect the time the shipping can take place – because in some countries the boats beyond a particular size are not allowed on the road in certain times of a day.

Naturally, the safest way to ship a yacht is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat 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 proper way to secure it – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. While looking for a proper hauler, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to receive a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.

The price of yacht shipment mostly hinges on the dimensions of the boat as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, which may raise the cost of the shipment.
