How to Ship Yachts Overseas

The act of delivering a yacht overseas isn’t easy without the help of professionals. It takes a lot of planning, equipment, and training to transport any kind of vessel but especially one as large as a yacht. Some yachts exceed over 100ft in length. These mega yachts are much too difficult to transport without a licensed transport company with international shipping experience.

Dealerships, manufacturers and yacht enthusiasts all over the world take advantage of shipping services. These services are cost effective and affordable. They’re also the safest way to get a yacht from one place to the next, particularly when it comes to international deliveries. International shipping is much more detailed than cross nation or state to state shipping. To gain import approval into another country, you must abide by all that is stated in the country’s import policy.

A Little Information about the International Shipping Process…

Try your best to hire an international yacht transporter months in advance. This will give everyone including you, enough time to prepare. Gaining import approval might be the most time consuming part of the entire experience. Luckily, your international transport professionals will guide you through it step by step.

Not only will your transport company inform you of the other nation’s import laws, but they recommend that their customers contact the embassy of the country they’re delivering to. They can provide you with the most up-to-date information including the current taxes that must be paid. Once, you know what must be done for a lawful import, start gathering the documentation you need.

In most cases, you’ll need to provide the Bill of Lading, receipts for paid dues, invoices, and other pertinent documents to the Customs office. Once they receive all the required documentation, they’ll approve your yacht’s transport and give you a certified document as proof. Not only must you gain import approval as preparation to the actual transport, but you’ll need to prepare your yacht as requested by your transport company. This includes cleaning the yacht out and getting it in its best condition. You’ll also be asked to disconnect gas powered appliances and to secure all hatches, doors and openings.

When the day of the transport arrives, your transporter will come retrieve it from where it’s stored. They’ll secure it to the hauler and take care of it during the entire shipping process. Most transporters will even offer real time satellite tracking so you can keep an eye on your precious cargo the whole time.

★★★★★ 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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
