Yachts transportation

Transporting a boat requires particular machinery as well as thorough preparation. A sailing boat is a very prone to damage as well as valuable cargo. Possible damages (that can be quite easy to obtain) may seriously lower the boat’s financial worth. That’s the reason it is best to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a yacht – his knowledge as well as abilities will be your insurance that shipped boat will arrive at its destination without any problems.


Nonetheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to transport a yacht, you still need to do a few things yourself. First of all, check the exact dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it is always safer to take the dimensions of the yacht yourself, as even slight disparities in values can make the transport more demanding and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when searching for someone to transport your yacht: the length, the height and the beam. Length of the sailing boat should be measured between the bow and the transom. The sailing boat length should not include 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. As for the beam – it is checked where the boat is widest, usually near the middle of the vessel.


Please, note that giving the transport provider the right size of the boat affects not only the safety of the shipment but also its price. Moreover, it may also influence the time the shipping may take place – as there are countries where the boats beyond a certain length are not permitted on the road in some times of a day.


Naturally, the most risk-free way to ship a yacht is by using a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). In case you choose to hire a hauler, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will take care of that. While looking for a proper hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to demand a repayment in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.


The price of boat shipment largely depends on the dimensions of the boat and how long the route is. Other price-defining factor is the weather – harsh atmospheric conditions may cause the boat to damage. If there is a risk your boat will be transported in uncertain weather conditions, the hauler will have to shield it against those conditions, which may alter the cost of the transportation.
