Yachts transportation

Shipping a sailing boat takes particular equipment as well as careful arrangements. A yacht is an extremely delicate and expensive cargo. Possible damages (which can be pretty easy to obtain) may badly impair the yacht’s value. That’s why it is best to hire a professional hauler to transport a sailing boat – his experience and skills will serve as insurance that transported yacht 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 make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the precise size of your sailing boat. You can base on what the manufacturer tells you, but it is always best to measure the yacht personally, as even slight differences in values can cause the transport to be more demanding and sometimes even impossible. You should check 3 different dimensions when looking for someone to transport 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 shouldn’t contain any attachments, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured from the keel to the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it is measured where the boat is widest, which usually means near the middle of the vessel.


Remember that taking precise dimensions of the yacht affects not only the security of the shipment but also its price. More than that, it can also influence the time of a day the transportation can take place – as there are countries where the loads beyond a certain size are not allowed on the road in some times of a day.


Of course, 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 decide to get help from a transport provider, you do not need to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will take care of that. When searching for a right hauler, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, that will entitle you to receive a compensation if anything should happen to your boat in shipment.


The price of yacht transportation mostly hinges on the dimensions of the boat as well as how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may cause the boat to damage. In case your boat may be transported in varying atmospheric conditions, the transport provider will have to secure it properly, and it could alter the price of the transportation.
