Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat requires special machinery as well as careful preparation. A yacht is an extremely fragile and costly load. Any damages (that can be quite easy to obtain) may seriously lower the boat’s value. This is why it would be best to hire skilled transport provider to transport a yacht – his experience and abilities will serve as warrant that transported yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you still need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the precise dimensions of your yacht. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the boat personally, because even slight disparities in size can make the transport more difficult and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while searching for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat is measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length does not contain any attachments, for example an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the yacht.


Please, note that taking precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but additionally its price. Moreover, it can also influence the time of a day the shipping can occur – because in some countries the boats above a certain size are not allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to transport a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). If you decide to hire a transport provider, you do not need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will be obliged to take care of securing the cargo. When looking for a right transport provider for the job, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in transportation.


The price of yacht shipment mostly depends on the size of the yacht and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh weather conditions may cause the boat to damage. In case there is a risk your boat will be transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the transport provider must secure it properly, and it could alter the price of the transportation.
