HOW TO TRANSPORT YOUR BOAT ACROSS THE BORDER :
There are a few choices to consider when preparing to transport your boat abroad:
Roll-on/Roll-off: known as "RO/RO," this method of shipping involves keeping your boat on a trailer the entire time, either your own or the carrier's. In terms of international boat shipment, this is the most popular choice. Booms, antennas, and radar towers should be removed or lowered in order to lessen the overall height and volume of your boat. As shipping firms typically measure the whole height including the trailer, this will significantly cut costs.
Large cargo vessels typically transport enclosed containers. If your boat is within the normal measurements, you might choose to select this option. Although containerized services are typically far less expensive than RO/RO, the height stipulation also applies to trailer height. Ask the carriers about the many containerized solutions they offer.
Oversized boats typically employ flat racks. A boat is transported in its own special cradle, which is then strapped onto the flat rack and fastened to the ship. It is strongly advised that structures like arches or the bridge be taken down and secured. You can save your freight costs by several hundred dollars by deleting bulky items.
Your boat is loaded and unloaded while submerged in the water.
Make sure you get any legal and customs documentation ready before sending anything abroad. The foreign embassy or consulate in the nation you are shipping your boat to would be a fantastic place to start if you want to learn more about the necessary paperwork. By doing your research and according to the proper registration requirements, you may avoid unnecessary worry, wasted time, and any potential dangers.
Before shipment, winterizing your boat is highly advised. Failure to do so may result in damaged interiors and destroyed engines. When it comes to keeping your boat safe and secure, shrink wrapping is a highly recommended option. It can also offer some level of deterrence and security while your boat is in transit. Additionally, it is a good idea to ship your priceless electronic components separately to prevent loss during transit.
Always check to see whether you feel at ease with your shipper. Don't be shy about getting help on how to ship your yacht overseas or asking questions regarding moving your boat. The majority of carriers have years of experience and can advise you on the most affordable, secure method to send your boat abroad.
