Yachts transportation

Shipping a sailing boat requires certain supplies and careful arrangements. A yacht is a very prone to damage and valuable load. Possible damages (which can be quite simple to obtain) may seriously impair the yacht’s value. That’s why it is best to search for help from an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will serve as insurance that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.


Still even if you hire a hauler to ship a yacht, you still need to do a few things personally. First of all, measure the exact size of your yacht. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it is always best to measure the boat yourself, because even small disparities in size can cause the transport to be more demanding and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know while searching for someone to transport your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht is 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, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the boat.


Remember that taking the right size of the yacht affects not only the security of the shipment but additionally its price. More than that, it can also influence the time the transportation can take place – because in some countries the loads above a certain length may not be allowed on the road in some times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a yacht is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you choose to hire a transport provider, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. While looking for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The price of boat transportation mostly depends on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather 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 must secure it properly, which may alter the cost of the shipment.
