Yachts transportation

Transporting a sailing boat requires certain machinery as well as careful arrangements. A sailing boat is a very delicate and costly load. Any damages (that can be quite easy to obtain) could seriously impair the yacht’s financial worth. This is why it would be smart to search for help from a professional transport provider to ship a sailing boat – his knowledge as well as abilities will serve as insurance that shipped boat will safely arrive at its destination.


Nonetheless regardless of whether you decide to hire a hauler to ship a sailing boat, you still need to make some preparations personally. First of all, check the exact dimensions of your sailing boat. You can base on the information given by the manufacturer, however it would be best to take the dimensions of the yacht personally, because even small disparities in size can make shipping more difficult and sometimes even impossible. There are three dimensions you should know when looking for someone to transport your sailing boat: 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 shouldn’t contain any elements that are located outside of the boat, e.g. an outboard motor. The yacht’s height should be measured between the keel and the highest point of the boat. And lastly, the beam – it should be checked at the widest point of the boat, which usually means near the middle of the vessel.


Remember that giving the transport provider precise size of the boat affects not only the security of the transport but additionally its cost. Moreover, it can also influence the time the shipping can take place – because there are countries where the loads beyond a certain length are not permitted on the road in some times of a day.


Of course, the safest way to ship a sailing boat is to use a trailer dedicated to transporting a boat or a semitrailer (depending on the size of the boat). In case you decide to hire a hauler, you don’t have to worry about securing it properly – the transport provider will be obliged to take care of securing the cargo. While searching for a proper transport provider, ask if he has a carrier liability insurance, which will enable you to receive a repayment if anything should happen to your yacht in shipment.


The cost of yacht transportation largely hinges on the size of the boat and the length of the route. Other price-defining factor are atmospheric conditions – harsh atmospheric conditions can cause the boat to damage. If there is a risk your boat will be shipped in uncertain weather conditions, the transport provider must shield it against those conditions, and it could alter the price of the shipment.
