Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat takes certain equipment and thorough preparation. A yacht is an awfully fragile as well as expensive load. Possible damages (which are pretty easy to get) could seriously lower the boat’s financial worth. That’s why it is smart to search for help from a professional hauler to ship a yacht – his experience as well as abilities will serve as insurance that shipped yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


However regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to transport a yacht, you need to do a few things personally. First of all, measure the exact size of your yacht. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always safer to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even slight differences in values can make the transport more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while searching for a hauler for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length should not include any attachments, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it should be measured at the widest point of the boat, usually near the middle of the yacht.


Remember that giving the transport provider precise size of the boat does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its price. Moreover, it can also affect the time of a day the shipping can take place – as there are countries where the boats beyond a certain length are not permitted on 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 how big the boat is). In case you decide to hire a transport provider, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will be obliged to take care of that. While searching for a proper transport provider for the job, ask if 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 boat transportation largely hinges on the dimensions of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. If your boat may be shipped in varying weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, which may raise the cost of the transportation.
