Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat requires particular machinery and careful arrangements. A sailing boat is an extremely prone to damage as well as expensive load. Any damages (that are pretty simple to get) could seriously diminish the boat’s value. That’s the reason it is best to search for help from a professional hauler to ship a yacht – his experience and skills will serve as insurance that shipped yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.

However regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to ship a yacht, you still need to make some preparations personally. Firstly, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, however it is always best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even slight disparities in size can make the transport harder and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when searching for a transport provider 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 yacht length does not include any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it is checked at the widest point of the boat, usually near the middle of the yacht.

Remember that taking the right size of the yacht affects not only the security of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the transportation may occur – because there are countries where the loads above a particular size are not allowed on the road in certain times of a day.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a yacht is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). If you decide to get help from a transport provider, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of securing the cargo. While looking for a proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will enable you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.

The price of boat shipment largely depends on the dimensions of the yacht 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 transport provider will have to secure it properly, and it may raise the price of the shipment.
