THE SIZE OF THE BOAT AND THE DESTINATION WILL DETERMINE THE METHOD OF SHIPMENT
We can load boats in containers if the width does not exceed 90” and the height 96”.
The trailer or cradle must be included in these dimensions. The boat may only be 90” wide but if the trailer measures 96” it will not fit. We can ship containerized boats to almost any part of the world.
Roll trailers are provided by Ro/Ro carriers to transport heavy and large cargo. Boats with cradles are loaded onto trailers and rolled on and off the vessel. Boats on trailers are towed onto the ship.
Ro/Ro destinations are limited and we do not offer door deliveries.
This is another option to consider when shipping oversized boats. We use lashing, lumber, cable and heavy gauge strapping to secure the boat to the flat rack.
Shrink-wrapping is highly recommended to protect the boat from the elements during on deck transportation to the port of destination.
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
Cradle or trailer is required to ship boats overseas. Upon request we can provide customized cradles at selected locations and shrink-wrap if required.
Drain all fuel and water tanks, disconnect batteries and tape cables prior to delivery.
If boat cannot be delivered by truck due to legal height limitation (varies by each state), special arrangements must be made for a water delivery.
Shipping charges are based on the overall volume of the boat including the trailer/cradle. To provide an accurate quote we need the overall length, overall width and overall height. This includes external items such as trailer tongues, boat swim platforms and out-drives etc.
Boats shipped to the European Union require CE Marking and Certification. The International Marine certification Institute (IMCI) provides certification services. Visit their website for more info http://imci.org
