Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for special supplies and thorough arrangements. A yacht is an awfully fragile as well as valuable cargo. Possible damages (which can be pretty simple to get) could badly diminish the boat’s value. That’s the reason it would be best to hire a professional transport provider to transport a yacht – his experience as well as skills will be your insurance that your boat will safely arrive at its destination.

Still even if you hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you still need to do a few things yourself. Firstly, measure the precise dimensions of your sailing boat. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, however it is always safer to take the dimensions of the boat yourself, because even small disparities in values can cause the transport to be harder and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know while looking for someone to transport 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 yacht length shouldn’t include any elements that are located outside of the boat, like an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, usually in the middle of the boat.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the boat does not only affect the security of the transport but additionally its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the transportation can take place – because in some countries the loads above a particular size may not be allowed on the road in some times of a day.

Naturally, the safest way to transport a yacht is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you decide to get help from a hauler, you do not have to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will be obliged to take care of that. While looking for a right hauler, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.

The cost of boat shipment mostly hinges on the size of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be shipped in varying weather conditions, the hauler must secure it properly, which could alter the cost of the transportation.
