Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht takes special supplies as well as precise arrangements. A yacht is a very prone to damage as well as costly load. Possible damages (that are pretty simple to get) may really diminish the boat’s financial worth. That’s why it would be best to hire a professional transport provider to ship a yacht – his knowledge and abilities will be your insurance that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nonetheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the precise size of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be safer to measure the yacht personally, because even minor disparities in size can cause the transport to be harder and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when searching for someone to transport 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 contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, usually near the middle of the vessel.


Remember that taking precise dimensions of the yacht affects not only the security of the transport but also its price. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the shipping may occur – as there are countries where the loads above a certain length are not allowed on the road in certain times of a day.


Of course, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you choose to get help from a transport provider, you don’t have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of securing the cargo. When searching for a proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the dimensions of the boat as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions may cause the boat to damage. In case there is a risk your boat will be shipped in varying weather conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the price of the transportation.
