Safe Yacht Shipping

Yachts are special boats. They are the very epitome of luxury. Just like a Rolls Royce is the “queen of luxurious vehicles”, the Yacht is the queen of luxurious boats. They are large vessels of leisure. Some are even built as a “floating home”, equipped with a lounge, bedrooms, a kitchen, washrooms and some even a small office. Small yachts, “cabin cruisers” stretch at 10 meters while large ones “super yachts and mega yachts” stretch to as long as 50 meters long. A yacht, being the epitome of luxury, can only be afforded by the “who is who” and “Forbes Listers” in the world. Cabin cruisers can cost you 10s of thousands of dollars while Super yachts can go for millions of dollars. Furthermore, running costs can cost as much as 10% of the yacht's initial cost.

It is for this reason that yacht owners are extra choosy in opting for the best yacht transporter. A-1 Auto Transport has over 25 years of experience in safe yacht shipping to various destinations around the world. We understand the sensitivity of shipping out a $10 million yacht across the world, and it is for this matter that our clients have trusted us to do the job right for over two decades.

Safe yacht shipping services

Due to the sensitivity of the matter, we offer special delivery services exclusively for yacht shipping. They all depend on the present situation. The main categories of clients we serve include but are not restricted to Yacht buyers looking for yacht transportation from companies to their destination, Yacht owners on vacation, salvaged yachts,

  • Yacht buyers’ delivery: This package is exclusively for clients that have just bought a yacht in the U.S and wish to relocate it across the continent and clients that have bought a yacht in the U.S and want it delivered overseas. We offer to pick up your yacht from the manufacturer’s ware shop (although they offer delivery up to certain distances). We then carry on to safely deliver your yacht to a destination of your choice.
  • Yacht owners on Vacation: We serve yacht owners that want to go on vacation during the summer to special getaway destinations but do not want to go through the hassle of sailing through an entire ocean. For such clients, we offer safe yacht shipping services by means of giant cargo vessels to various Caribbean and Mediterranean locations.
  • Salvaged Yachts: Accidents can happen at sea, damaging your yacht bad enough for it to endure an entire voyage back to dock. We offer shipping services for salvaged yachts safely to the closest docks. This is a crucial category. Depending on the damage, we may require special equipment to safely ship the inoperable yacht. Factors like distance, the complexity of the situation and shipping method used will determine how much it will cost. Our staff will work out the particulars and offer a quote on the entire process.

Safe Yacht Shipping Options

  • Lift on/Lift OffWe use enormous cranes capable of handling 6000-tonne yachts are used to lift your yacht from the dock or water onto the shipping vessel. Upon destination, the cranes lift your yacht from the vessel onto a dock or directly into the water. This is the most common method used to safely transport a yacht as most yachts cannot fit into a container.
  • CradlesThe yacht is placed on a cradle before it can be loaded onto the transporting vessel. Most cradles are for hire and come in different sizes to accommodate both super yachts and cabin cruisers.
  • Submersion: This option serves the purpose of transporting the yacht from point A to B without it touching land. The yacht is normally initially in the water. It is safely guided to a transporting vessel floating deeper in the waters. Upon arrival, a crane vessel hoists the yacht to drain it off water then safely places it on the transporting vessel. The yacht is safely transported to the agreed destination and upon arrival, it is leveled down back into the waters by the crane.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
