Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat takes certain supplies and careful arrangements. A yacht is an awfully prone to damage and costly load. Any damages (which are pretty easy to obtain) could really impair the yacht’s value. This is the reason it would be best to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his experience and skills will serve as insurance that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.


Still even if you hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the exact size of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even small differences in size can make the transport harder and in some cases even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for a hauler for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length should not include any attachments, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the yacht.


Please, note that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the shipment but additionally its cost. Moreover, it can also affect the time of a day the transportation can occur – because there are countries where the boats beyond a certain length are not allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you decide to hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will take care of securing the cargo. While searching for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of boat transportation mostly hinges on the dimensions of the boat and how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the hauler will have to secure it properly, and it could raise the price of the shipment.
