Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat calls for special machinery and careful preparation. A yacht is an awfully fragile and expensive cargo. Possible damages (which can be quite easy to obtain) could badly impair the yacht’s value. This is the reason it is smart to hire an experienced transport provider to ship a yacht – his knowledge as well as abilities will serve as warrant that your boat will safely arrive at its destination.

However even if you hire a transport provider to ship a sailing boat, you still need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the precise size of your yacht. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, however it would be safer to take the dimensions of the boat yourself, because even slight differences in values can cause the transport to be harder and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when searching for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat is measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length should not contain any attachments, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it should be measured where the boat is widest, usually near the middle of the yacht.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the transport but also its price. More than that, it may also affect the time the shipping can occur – because there are countries where the loads beyond a particular size are not permitted to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Naturally, the safest way to transport a yacht is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). If you decide to get help from a transport provider, you don’t need to worry about proper way to secure it – the hauler will take care of that. When searching for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a repayment in case anything happens to your boat in shipment.

The price of boat shipment mostly hinges on the size of the boat and how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler must secure it properly, which may alter the price of the shipment.
