Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat takes certain supplies as well as thorough arrangements. A yacht is a very prone to damage as well as costly load. Possible damages (that are pretty easy to obtain) could seriously diminish the boat’s value. This is the reason it is smart to search for help from an experienced hauler to transport a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will serve as insurance that transported yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nevertheless even if you hire a hauler to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations 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 measure the yacht personally, as even small disparities in values can make the transport more demanding 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 is measured from the bow all the way to the transom. The yacht length does not include any attachments, e.g. 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 where the boat is widest, usually near the middle of the yacht.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the yacht affects not only the safety of the transport but additionally its cost. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the shipping may take place – because there are countries where the loads above a particular length are not allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.


Naturally, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is to use a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on the size of the boat). In case you choose to hire a hauler, you don’t have 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, that will enable you to demand a repayment in case anything happens to your boat in transportation.


The cost of yacht shipment mostly depends on the size of the boat and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. If your boat may be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider must shield it against those conditions, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
