Yachts transportation

Shipping a yacht calls for particular equipment and thorough arrangements. A yacht is an awfully prone to damage and valuable cargo. Possible damages (that can be pretty easy to get) may really diminish the yacht’s value. This is why it would be best to hire an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will be your warrant that your boat will safely arrive at its destination.

However even if you hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to do a few things yourself. First of all, measure the exact size of your yacht. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even minor differences in size can cause the transport to be more difficult and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions while looking for a transport provider for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length should not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. As for the beam – it is checked where the boat is widest, usually near the middle of the vessel.

Remember that taking the right size of the yacht affects not only the security of the transport but also its cost. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the transportation may take place – as in some countries the boats above a certain size may not be allowed to be transported by the road in some times of a day.

Of course, the most risk-free way to transport a yacht is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). If you decide to get help from a hauler, you do not have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will take care of securing the cargo. When searching for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your boat in shipment.

The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the size of the yacht as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in uncertain weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the price of the shipment.
