Yachts transportation

Shipping a yacht demand certain equipment and thorough preparation. A sailing boat is an extremely fragile and costly cargo. Any damages (that are pretty simple to obtain) may badly impair the yacht’s financial worth. This is why it is best to search for help from a professional hauler to ship a yacht – his knowledge and abilities will be your warrant that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.

However even if you hire a transport provider to ship a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations yourself. First of all, check the precise size of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, however it is always best to measure the boat yourself, as even small disparities in size 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 yacht should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The sailing boat length shouldn’t contain any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. As for the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the vessel.

Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the boat does not only affect the security of the transport but additionally its price. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the transportation can take place – because in some countries the loads beyond a particular length may not be permitted to be transported by the road in some times of a day.

Of course, the safest way to transport a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat 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 transport provider will take care of securing the cargo. When searching for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a repayment in case anything happens to your boat in shipment.

The price of boat transportation largely depends on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the price of the transportation.
