How much will it cost to ship a boat to Hawaii?

How much will it cost to ship a boat to Hawaii?

You might have already given some thought to how nice it would be to have a boat in Hawaii if you're thinking of relocating there. We offer shipping services for boats that you already own. We've been transporting watercraft to the Aloha State for over two decades, so you can be assured that your boat, yacht, sailboat, kayak, pontoon boat, ski boat, Jet ski, or other watercraft will arrive safely and quickly.

If you don’t already own a boat, you might have considered buying a boat in Hawaii but that can be very expensive and even with the shipping fees you will need to pay for overseas transport, you will most likely pay far less than if you waited until you reached Hawaii to buy a new or used boat on the island. You will also have a far larger selection of boats to choose from on the mainland than you will once you get to Hawaii.

Depending on the size of the boat and the mode of transport used to ship as well as the distance between ports, you can expect to pay upwards of $2000 to ship a boat to Hawaii. To get an accurate rate however, you will need to speak to a transport agent and provide detailed information about your boat and other information necessary to ship it for you.

A Boat Can Be Shipped To Hawaii

How Boats Are Shipped to Hawaii

A boat can be shipped to Hawaii with either LoLo or RoRo shipping.

LoLo boat shipping is best for yachts and larger boats and a crane is used to lift the boat onto the cargo ship for transport to Hawaii. Because someone must use a crane and lift the boat onto another vessel, LoLo can be a more expensive way to move a boat overseas, but it is safe and is ideal for larger boats. If you are shipping during the winter when weather is colder, it’s a good idea to shrink wrap your boat prior to shipping overseas to keep it secure.

RoRo boat shipping works in much the same way that RoRo shipping for cars works and it is the most popular way to have a boat shipped to Hawaii. With RoRo, boats are rolled onto the cargo ship on their trailer and secured in place for shipment. When the ship reaches the port in Hawaii, the boat and trailer are rolled off again. If you have a large boat without a trailer, you will need to purchase a custom-made trailer or build one before it can be loaded onto the RoRo ship.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
