Yachts transportation

Shipping a sailing boat takes special machinery and precise preparation. A yacht is a very delicate and valuable cargo. Any damages (which are pretty simple to get) may really diminish the yacht’s financial worth. That’s why it is smart to hire a professional hauler to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge and abilities will be your warrant that transported boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nonetheless even if you hire a hauler to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things yourself. Firstly, check the precise size of your yacht. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, however it would be safer to measure the yacht personally, because even small disparities in size can cause the shipping to be harder and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while searching for someone to transport your sailing boat: 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 does not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, which usually means in the middle of the boat.


Remember that giving the transport provider the right size of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the shipment but also its price. Moreover, it may also affect the time the transportation can occur – because there are countries where the loads above a certain size may not be permitted to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to ship a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). In case you choose to get help from a hauler, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will take care of that. When searching for a right hauler, 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 cost of yacht transportation largely depends on the dimensions of the yacht and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case there is a risk your boat will be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the price of the transportation.
