Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for certain machinery and precise arrangements. A sailing boat is an awfully fragile as well as expensive cargo. Possible damages (that can be pretty easy to obtain) could really impair the yacht’s financial worth. That’s the reason it would be best to hire skilled hauler to transport a sailing boat – his experience as well as skills will serve as insurance that transported yacht will safely arrive at its destination.


Still even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the precise size of your sailing boat. You can rely 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 shipping to be harder and sometimes even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know while looking for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length shouldn’t contain any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the vessel. As for the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, usually near the middle of the vessel.


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


Of course, the safest way to ship a yacht is by using a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). If you decide to get help from a hauler, you do not have to worry about proper way to secure it – the transport provider will take care of securing the cargo. When looking for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, that will enable you to demand a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.


The cost of yacht transportation 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 can lead to damaging of the boat. If your boat may be shipped in varying weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, and it could raise the price of the transportation.
