Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat demand special machinery and thorough preparation. A sailing boat is an awfully delicate as well as costly cargo. Possible damages (which can be quite easy to get) could really lower the boat’s financial worth. This is why it would be best to search for help from skilled hauler to transport a sailing boat – his experience and abilities will serve as warrant that shipped yacht will safely arrive at its destination.

Still even if you hire a hauler to transport a yacht, you need to do a few things personally. Firstly, check the precise size of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, as even small differences in size can cause the transport to be harder and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know while 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 sailing boat length does not include any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it should be checked where the boat is widest, usually in the middle of the boat.

Please, note that giving the transport provider precise size of the boat does not only affect the safety of the shipment but additionally its price. Moreover, it may also influence the time of a day the transportation can take place – as in some countries the boats beyond a certain size may not be allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Of course, 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 get help from a hauler, you do not have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. When looking for a proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your boat in shipment.

The price of yacht transportation largely hinges on the size of the yacht as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh weather conditions may cause the boat to damage. If your boat may be transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, which could raise the cost of the transportation.
