Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat requires special machinery as well as precise arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully delicate as well as expensive cargo. Any damages (that are pretty easy to obtain) could badly diminish the yacht’s value. This is the reason it would be best to search for help from a professional hauler to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will be your insurance that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, measure the exact dimensions of your yacht. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always best to measure the yacht personally, as even minor differences in size can make the transport more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while searching for someone to transport your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length does not include any attachments, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the vessel.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also influence the time the transportation may take place – because in some countries the boats beyond a certain length are not allowed on the road in certain 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 the size of the boat). In case you choose to get help from a hauler, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of that. When searching for a right transport provider for the job, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in transportation.


The price of boat shipment mostly hinges on the size of the boat as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions can cause the boat to damage. In case there is a risk your boat will be shipped in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the transport provider must secure it properly, and it may alter the price of the shipment.
