Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat calls for certain equipment and thorough preparation. A yacht is an extremely fragile as well as expensive load. Any damages (that can be pretty easy to get) could badly diminish the boat’s financial worth. That’s the reason it would be best to hire a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his experience and abilities will be your warrant that transported yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things yourself. Firstly, check the exact size of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be safer to measure the yacht personally, because even minor differences in values can cause the transport to be more difficult and in some cases even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length does not include any elements that are located outside of the boat, for example 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 should be checked where the boat is widest, which usually means near the middle of the yacht.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its cost. Moreover, it can also influence the time the shipping may take place – as in some countries the loads above a particular length may not be allowed on the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you decide to get help from a hauler, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will be obliged to take care of that. When searching for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in transportation.


The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the dimensions of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. If there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it may alter the price of the transportation.
