Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat requires special machinery as well as careful preparation. A sailing boat is a very fragile as well as costly load. Possible damages (which are pretty easy to obtain) may really lower the yacht’s financial worth. That’s the reason it is best to hire an experienced transport provider to transport a yacht – his experience as well as abilities will serve as warrant that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nonetheless even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things personally. Firstly, measure the precise size of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it is always best to measure the boat personally, as even slight disparities in values can make the transport harder and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when looking for a hauler for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht must be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length shouldn’t contain any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. As for the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the boat.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the shipment but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the transportation can take place – because in some countries the loads beyond a particular length are not allowed on the road in some times of a day.


Of course, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). In case you choose to hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will take care of that. While searching for a proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of boat shipment largely hinges on the size of the boat as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh weather conditions can cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be transported in varying weather conditions, the transport provider must secure it properly, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
