Yachts transportation

Transporting a yacht requires certain machinery as well as thorough arrangements. A yacht is an awfully prone to damage and valuable load. Any damages (which are quite easy to obtain) could really lower the boat’s financial worth. This is why it would be best to hire an experienced transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his experience as well as abilities will be your insurance that transported boat will safely arrive at its destination.

However regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you still need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the exact size of your yacht. You can rely on the information given by the manufacturer, but it is always best to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, because even slight differences in size can cause the shipping to be more demanding and in some cases even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for a transport provider for your sailing boat: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat is measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length should not contain any attachments, like 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 checked at the widest point of the boat, usually in the middle of the vessel.

Remember that taking precise dimensions of the yacht affects not only the safety of the transport but additionally its price. More than that, it can also affect the time the transportation can occur – because in some countries the boats above a particular size are not allowed to be transported by the road in some 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 hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the hauler will be obliged to take care of that. When searching for a right transport provider, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in transportation.

The cost of boat transportation largely depends on the size of the yacht and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh weather conditions can lead to damaging of the boat. In case your boat may be shipped in uncertain atmospheric conditions, the transport provider will have to secure it properly, and it may alter the cost of the shipment.
