Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat takes certain equipment and careful arrangements. A yacht is an awfully fragile and valuable load. Any damages (that can be quite simple to obtain) could really diminish the yacht’s value. This is why it would be best to hire an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will be your warrant that transported yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Nonetheless even if you hire a hauler to ship a yacht, you still need to do a few things personally. Firstly, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even slight differences in size can cause the shipping to be more demanding and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions while searching for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht should be measured between the bow and the transom. The yacht length should not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, e.g. an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured between the keel and 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 vessel.


Please, note that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the safety of the transport but also its cost. More than that, it may also influence the time the transportation can occur – because there are countries where the boats above a certain size are not permitted to be transported by the road in some times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). In case you decide to hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. When looking for a right hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.


The cost of yacht transportation largely hinges on the size of the boat as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If your boat may be transported in varying weather conditions, the transport provider will have to secure it properly, and it could alter the cost of the shipment.
