Transport your yacht in just three easy steps!
1 | Create Your Listing
We suggest you begin the planning process for shipping your yacht at least a month before your ship date. This will give you enough time to research your options on boat trailers, choosing a yacht carrier, shopping for quotes and how to best prepare your yacht for pickup. For international yacht shipping, you should provide more time for carriers to research quotes and to properly prepare for your yacht during the extended transport.
Consider your timeframe and locations for pick up and delivery, and specify if your yacht will be on its own trailer or if you’ll need the service providers to get the yacht onto their trailer. Take some high quality photos of your yacht, and be ready with the dimensions, make, and model of your yacht. It is important to gather precise measurements when measuring your yacht to ensure proper transportation and eliminate costly fees. With this information, a yacht transporter can provide a quote for boat shipping that includes licenses and permits. Provide as much detail as possible in the shipment listing so the transporters can provide you their best rates.
2 | Choose the Best Yacht Shipping Company
When you have completed your shipment listing, you will start receiving shipping rates from service providers who specialize in yacht transportation. They’ll provide shipping rates through quotes on your listing as they compete for your business, ensuring you get the best shipping quotes. As the quotes come in, talk to the transporters directly. Ask them questions about their experience shipping yachts and what kind of service they can provide.
Every yacht transporter on uShip has a carrier profile with their transportation history, safety records, and customer rated feedback for your review. Make sure you check out their transport history to see if they have experience shipping a yacht like yours, and see the experience their previous customers had with them. By talking to the service providers and reviewing their carrier profiles, you can feel confident you’re choosing the best yacht shipping company.
3 | Yacht Transport & Delivery
Once you have chosen your yacht transport company, contact them directly with any concerns, questions, or additional details you may have about your shipment. Provide any marina or third party contact information to your transporter, as clear communication is the key to a successful shipment. If you have any issues communicating with your transporter, please let us know. We are here to help before, during, and after your yacht delivery is complete.
