Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat requires special equipment as well as precise preparation. A sailing boat is an extremely fragile as well as valuable cargo. Any damages (that are pretty simple to get) may seriously diminish the yacht’s financial worth. This is why it would be smart to search for help from skilled hauler to transport a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will be your warrant that your boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.

However even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, check the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be best to measure the boat yourself, as even slight disparities in values 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 sailing boat must be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length does not contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, e.g. 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 yacht.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise size of the yacht affects not only the security of the transport but additionally its price. Moreover, it may also affect the time of a day the transportation may take place – because in some countries the loads beyond a particular size may not be permitted to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Of course, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat 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 hauler, you don’t have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. While looking for a right transport provider for the job, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.

The price of yacht transportation largely hinges on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If there is a risk your boat will be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the hauler will have to secure it properly, and it could raise the price of the shipment.
