Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat requires particular supplies and precise arrangements. A yacht is an awfully delicate and valuable cargo. Any damages (that can be quite simple to obtain) could seriously lower the boat’s value. This is why it is smart to search for help from skilled hauler to ship a sailing boat – his experience as well as skills will be your warrant that transported yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nevertheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things personally. First of all, check the exact dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, however it would be safer to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even minor differences in values can make shipping harder and in some cases even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for a hauler for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length shouldn’t contain any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it should be measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the boat.


Remember that taking the right dimensions of the boat affects not only the security of the transport but also its price. Moreover, it may also influence the time of a day the transportation can occur – because in some countries the loads above a particular length are not allowed on the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a yacht is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). In case you decide to hire a hauler, you do not need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will be obliged to take care of that. When looking for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The price of yacht transportation largely hinges on the dimensions of the yacht and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions can cause the boat to damage. In case there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
