Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht requires particular supplies and thorough preparation. A yacht is an awfully prone to damage and costly load. Any damages (that can be pretty simple to get) may badly impair the yacht’s value. That’s why it is smart to search for help from a professional hauler to transport a sailing boat – his experience as well as abilities will be your warrant that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.

However regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the precise dimensions of your yacht. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even minor disparities in size can cause the transport to be more difficult and sometimes even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when searching for someone to transport your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht must be measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length should not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the vessel.

Remember that taking the right dimensions of the boat does not only affect the safety of the shipment but also its cost. Moreover, it may also influence the time of a day the shipping can take place – because there are countries where the boats above a particular size are not permitted to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Of course, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). If you choose to get help from a hauler, you don’t have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will take care of that. While searching for a right transport provider for the job, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a compensation if anything should happen to your boat in shipment.

The cost of yacht transportation mostly depends on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler will have to secure it properly, which could alter the cost of the shipment.
