Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat demand particular supplies and thorough preparation. A yacht is a very delicate and costly load. Possible damages (which can be pretty easy to obtain) could really lower the boat’s value. This is why it would be smart to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his experience and skills will be your insurance that your yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Still even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you still need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, measure the precise dimensions of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the boat yourself, as even slight disparities in values can make shipping more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length should not contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. As for the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, which usually means in the middle of the vessel.


Remember that taking precise size of the boat affects not only the security of the transport but additionally its price. More than that, it can also affect the time the transportation can take place – as there are countries where the boats beyond a particular size are not allowed to be transported by the road in some times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you choose 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 that. When searching for a proper transport provider for the job, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The price of yacht transportation largely depends on the dimensions of the yacht and the length of the route. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler must secure it properly, which may alter the price of the transportation.
