Yacht Transport: An In-Depth Analysis of Time and Cost

The Basics of Preparation: The Yacht Shipping Process by Road

Before you begin the shipping process by Road, there are a few things you should do to prepare your boat:

*Always consult a professional company such as Boat Transporters for the most accurate information specific to your boat.

  • Clean the boat: Clean the boat inside and out before you ship. This will help prevent the spread of invasive species and will make the unloading process easier.
  • Check for damage: Inspect the hull and deck for cracks, dents, or other damage. This is so you can document any existing damage and avoid further damage during transport.
  • Drain the boat: Drain all the water from the boat, including the bilge, live wells, and freshwater tanks. This will help prevent the growth of mold and mildew during transport.
  • Remove all loose items: Remove any loose items from the deck and storage areas. These items could shift during transport and damage your boat or injure someone.
  • Secure all loose items: Anything that can’t be removed from the Boat Transport should be securely fastened down. This includes items like canvas covers, Bimini tops, and life jackets.
  • Disconnect the batteries: Disconnect and remove the batteries from the boat to prevent short circuits and electrical fires during transportation.
  • Prepare the mast: If your yacht has a mast, it will need to be unstepped and stored in a safe place. You'll also need to remove any stays, shrouds, or other rigging, and take down any sails or canvas.
  • Measure the boat: Accurately measure the length, width, and height of the yacht so that we can provide you with an accurate quote. (Find out how to measure your yacht in the next section.)

How to Properly Measure Your Boat Yacht Before Shipping

For a more accurate quote, it's important to measure your yacht correctly. Here is a breakdown of the measurements you will need to take:

Length: Measure the length of the yacht from the tip of the bow to the stern. The length will determine the size of the shipping container or trailer needed for transport.

Height: Measure the height of the yacht from the waterline to the tallest point on the mast. The height will also help determine the size of the shipping container or trailer needed for transport.

Beam: Measure the beam of the yacht from one side to the other at the broadest point. This measurement is needed to calculate how much space the yacht will take up on a dock or shipping container.

Dry weight: The dry weight of the yacht is the weight of the yacht without any fuel, water, or people onboard. This measurement is needed to calculate the total weight of the yacht and its cargo.

Draft: The draft of the yacht is the length between the waterline and the base of the hull. The draft is needed to determine if the yacht can dock in shallow waters.

A-1 Auto Transport is the leading provider of yacht shipping services. We have the experience and expertise to handle all your transporters needs, whether you're shipping a small sailboat or a large motor yacht locally, nationally, or internationally.

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.
