Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat calls for particular supplies as well as precise arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully delicate as well as valuable load. Any damages (that are quite easy to get) may badly diminish the yacht’s value. This is the reason it would be smart to hire a professional transport provider to transport a sailing boat – his experience as well as abilities will serve as warrant that shipped boat will safely arrive at its destination.


Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always safer to measure the boat yourself, as even minor disparities in size can cause the transport to be more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when searching for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht must be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length does not contain 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 should be checked where the boat is widest, which usually means in the middle of the vessel.


Remember that taking the right dimensions of the boat affects not only the safety of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the shipping can occur – because in some countries the boats beyond a particular size are not allowed on the road in some times of a day.


Of course, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). In case you decide to get help from a transport provider, you don’t need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will take care of that. While looking for a right transport provider for the job, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to demand a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in transportation.


The cost of yacht transportation largely depends on the size of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If there is a risk your boat will be transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the transport provider will have to shield it against those conditions, which could alter the cost of the shipment.
