Yachts transportation

Shipping a yacht takes special machinery as well as thorough arrangements. A sailing boat is an extremely delicate as well as expensive cargo. Possible damages (that are pretty simple to obtain) may seriously lower the yacht’s value. This is the reason it is best to hire a professional transport provider to transport a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as skills will serve as warrant that your yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.

However even if you hire a transport provider to transport a sailing boat, you still need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, check the exact size of your yacht. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, as even small disparities in size can make the transport more demanding and in some cases even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when searching for a hauler for your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat must be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length does not include any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the yacht.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time the transportation may occur – because there are countries where the boats above a certain size may not be allowed on the road in some times of a day.

Of course, the safest way to ship a yacht is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). If you decide to hire a transport provider, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of securing the cargo. While searching for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will enable you to receive a compensation in case anything happens to your boat in transportation.

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