Shipping a sailing boat takes special supplies and precise arrangements. A yacht is an extremely prone to damage and expensive cargo. Any damages (that are pretty simple to obtain) could badly diminish the boat’s financial worth. This is the reason it is smart to hire skilled transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as skills will serve as insurance that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.

Still even if you hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you still need to make some preparations personally. First of all, measure the precise size of your yacht. You can rely on what the manufacturer tells you, however it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even minor disparities in values can cause the shipping to be harder and in some cases even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions while looking for a transport provider for your yacht: 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 elements that are located outside of the boat, for example an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, which usually means near the middle of the vessel.

Remember that giving the transport provider precise size of the boat does not only affect the security of the transport but also its cost. More than that, it may also affect the time of a day the shipping can take place – because there are countries where the loads above a particular size may not be allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Of course, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is by using a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you decide to get help from a transport provider, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will take care of that. While searching for a right transport provider for the job, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in transportation.

The price of boat shipment largely hinges on the size of the boat as well as the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions can cause the boat to damage. In case your boat may be shipped in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the hauler must shield it against those conditions, and it could alter the price of the shipment.
