Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for particular supplies and precise arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully delicate and costly cargo. Possible damages (that can be quite simple to get) may badly lower the boat’s value. That’s why it would be smart to search for help from skilled transport provider to transport a yacht – his knowledge and abilities will be your warrant that your boat will safely arrive at its destination.

Nonetheless even if you hire a transport provider to ship a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, measure the exact size of your yacht. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, however it is always best to measure the yacht yourself, as even small differences in size can make shipping more demanding and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for a hauler for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat must be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length shouldn’t include any attachments, for example 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 measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the boat.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht affects not only the security of the shipment but also its cost. Moreover, it can also affect the time of a day the transportation can occur – as there are countries where the boats above a particular size are not permitted to be transported by the road in some times of a day.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). In case you choose to hire a transport provider, you do not have to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of securing the cargo. When looking for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your boat in transportation.

The price of yacht transportation largely depends on the dimensions of the boat as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh weather conditions may cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be transported in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may alter the price of the transportation.
