Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat demand special machinery as well as thorough preparation. A sailing boat is an extremely fragile and valuable cargo. Possible damages (which are quite easy to obtain) may seriously diminish the yacht’s financial worth. That’s why it is smart to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his experience as well as skills will serve as insurance that transported yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.

Nevertheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a yacht, you still need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, check the precise size of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, however it is always best to take the dimensions of the boat yourself, because even minor differences in values can cause the transport to be harder and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know while searching for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht is measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length should not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and 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.

Please, note that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its cost. More than that, it can also influence the time the shipping may occur – because in some countries the boats beyond 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 yacht is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you choose to hire a hauler, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of securing the cargo. While looking for a right transport provider for the job, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will enable you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your boat in transportation.

The price of yacht transportation mostly hinges on the dimensions of the yacht and how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may cause the boat to damage. In case your boat may be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the cost of the shipment.
