Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat calls for particular supplies as well as precise preparation. A yacht is an extremely delicate and expensive cargo. Possible damages (which are pretty easy to get) could badly diminish the yacht’s financial worth. This is why it is best to search for help from an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will serve as warrant that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.

Nonetheless even if you hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to do a few things personally. First of all, measure the exact size of your sailing boat. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even slight differences in values can make the transport harder and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for a hauler for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the yacht is 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, like an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. And lastly, the beam – it is measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the boat.

Please, note that giving the transport provider precise dimensions of the yacht does not only affect the security of the shipment but also its cost. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the transportation may take place – as there are countries where the loads above a certain size may not be permitted to be transported by the road in some times of a day.

Of course, the most risk-free way to ship a yacht is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on how big the boat is). In case you decide to get help from a hauler, you don’t need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will take care of securing the cargo. When searching for a right transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.

The cost of boat shipment mostly hinges on the dimensions of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may cause the boat to damage. If there is a risk your boat will be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the hauler must secure it properly, and it could alter the price of the transportation.
