Shipping Fees For Boats

The cost of shipping boats depends on many factors. Your boat shipping price will be influenced by two main factors: the size of your boat and the distance it must go.

Boats up to 40 feet long, 7 feet 10 inches high, and 7 feet 8 inches broad, for instance, can be transported in an enclosed container. Extra licenses and precautions are typically needed when transporting boats that are larger than the standard size. An oversize load permit is necessary for ground transportation of boats wider than 8'6". A certified escort is required for boats wider than 12 feet, and interstate navigation may be prohibited.

The manufacturing specifications are typically accurate, but you should manually measure the overall length from bow to stern, overall height from the bottom of the keel to the highest non-removable part, and the beam, including the rub rails, before transport to make sure the dimensions are correct.

These specifications are crucial, especially when shipping a boat over foreign borders.

The most typical method of shipping a boat abroad is roll-on/roll-off, or RO/RO shipping, which enables you to transfer your boat while it is safely fastened to a cradle or trailer. Yet, it can make your boat more exposed. Although an excellent choice, enclosed container transportation is not viable for big boats, which may need a flat rack. The boat stays in its cradle while being shipped on a flat rack.The cradled boat is secured to the transport vessel by a flat rack and a chain. Boats that are seaworthy can be loaded right into the water.

Get your boat ready for shipping.

The cost of transporting your boat can be decreased by properly preparing it for travel. One of the main factors influencing pricing is the transport dimensions, which includes weight. The shipping dimensions may also include the trailer, so bear that in mind.

In order to avoid damage during shipping, wooden boats in particular should always be transported on their specific cradles. Before shipment, winterize and clean your boat by taking off the sails, emptying the tanks, and cutting the fuel lines.

These steps can lessen the weight while also preventing theft, damage, and fire. Another degree of security can be added by choosing to have your boat shrink-wrapped for transportation.
