Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat requires certain supplies and thorough arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully fragile and expensive cargo. Possible damages (which can be pretty simple to obtain) may badly diminish the boat’s value. This is the reason it is best to search for help from an experienced transport provider to transport a sailing boat – his experience and skills will be your warrant that transported boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Still even if you hire a transport provider to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, check the exact size of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be best to measure the boat personally, as even minor disparities in values can cause the transport to be more difficult and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions while searching for someone to transport your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length shouldn’t include any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it should be measured where the boat is widest, usually in the middle of the yacht.


Please, note that giving the transport provider precise size of the boat does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it can also affect the time of a day the transportation can take place – as there are countries where the boats beyond a certain size are not allowed on the road in some times of a day.


Of course, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you decide to hire a transport provider, you do not need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of that. When searching for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.


The cost of yacht shipment mostly hinges on the size of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions can cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it may alter the cost of the transportation.
