Yachts transportation

Shipping a boat calls for certain supplies as well as thorough arrangements. A yacht is a very fragile as well as expensive cargo. Possible damages (which can be pretty simple to obtain) could seriously impair the yacht’s financial worth. This is the reason it would be smart to search for help from a professional hauler to transport a yacht – his knowledge and skills will be your warrant that your yacht will safely arrive at its destination.

Nevertheless even if you hire a transport provider to ship a yacht, you still need to make some preparations yourself. Firstly, measure the precise size of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, but it would be safer to take the dimensions of the boat yourself, because even small differences in values can make shipping more difficult and in some cases even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when searching for someone to transport 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 should not contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, like an outboard motor. The height of the yacht is measured between the keel and the highest point of the boat. As for the beam – it should be measured at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the yacht.

Remember that taking the right size of the boat does not only affect the security of the shipment but additionally its cost. Moreover, it may also influence the time of a day the transportation may take place – 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.

Naturally, the most risk-free way to ship a yacht is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (it mostly depends on how big the boat is). If you choose to hire a transport provider, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of that. When searching for a right hauler, make sure he has a carrier liability insurance, which will entitle you to demand a compensation in case anything happens to your yacht in shipment.

The cost of yacht transportation largely hinges on the size of the yacht as well as how long the route is. Among the price-defining factors you may also find the weather – harsh weather conditions may lead to damaging of the boat. In case there is a risk your boat will be shipped in varying atmospheric conditions, the transport provider will have to shield it against those conditions, and it may raise the price of the shipment.
