Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht calls for special machinery as well as careful arrangements. A yacht is an extremely fragile as well as expensive cargo. Any damages (which are pretty simple to get) may badly impair the yacht’s financial worth. That’s the reason it would be best to search for help from an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge and skills will serve as insurance that transported yacht will arrive at its destination without any problems.

Still regardless of whether you decide to hire a transport provider to transport a sailing boat, you need to make some preparations personally. Firstly, measure the exact size of your sailing boat. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, however it is always best to measure the boat yourself, because even minor differences in size can make the transport more demanding and sometimes even impossible. There are 3 dimensions that you should know when looking for a hauler 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 sailing boat length shouldn’t contain any attachments, like an outboard motor. The yacht’s height is measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it is checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means in the middle of the boat.

Remember that taking the right dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the transport but also its price. Moreover, it may also influence the time of a day the shipping may occur – because in some countries the boats beyond a particular length may not be allowed to be transported by the road in certain times of a day.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to ship a sailing boat is by using a dedicated boat trailer or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you choose 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 proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to demand a compensation if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.

The price of boat transportation largely depends on the size of the boat and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be transported in varying weather conditions, the hauler will have to secure it properly, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
