Yachts transportation

Shipping a yacht demand particular machinery as well as thorough preparation. A yacht is an extremely fragile as well as valuable load. Any damages (which are quite simple to obtain) may seriously diminish the yacht’s value. That’s why it is smart to hire an experienced hauler to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will serve as warrant that your yacht will safely arrive at its destination.

Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you still need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, check the precise size of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always best to take the dimensions of the boat personally, as even minor differences in size can make the transport more demanding and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for a hauler for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat is measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length does not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked where the boat is widest, which usually means near the middle of the boat.

Remember that taking the right dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the shipment but additionally its price. More than that, it may also influence the time of a day the shipping may take place – because in some countries the loads beyond a certain length are not permitted on the road in certain times of a day.

Of course, the most risk-free way to transport a yacht is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). In case you decide to hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will take care of securing the cargo. When searching for a proper transport provider for the job, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will enable you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.

The price of yacht transportation largely depends on the size of the yacht as well as the length of the route. 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 transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler will have to secure it properly, which could alter the price of the shipment.
