Yacht Relocation

There are many different way to ship a yacht depending on its size mainly but also weight. It is very important to outsource the best suited carrier based on the profile of the cargo to save time and money.

Geared vessel: This mean of transport also more commonly known as lift on/off is performed by vessels capable of working independently thanks to its equipment onboard. It doesn’t necessary have to rely on the gear of the port as container vessel (gearless) would do.

There are 2 type of services when it comes to transporting a boat:
Roll on Roll off:

This kind of vessel are particularly well designed for boats on trailer. This avoids extra handling such as cranes reducing the cost. The boat is pulled from the pier and loaded on the ship via its ramp. Although it is also possible to ship a static boat on RoRo, the main restriction remains the height of the boat. As a rule of thumb, the max height clearance of a ramp is 5 meters and consequently limiting the overall volume of the yacht to be transported.

Container vessel:

this vessels are versatile. They can accommodate boats in flat rack, container (40ft, open top..) and can load yachts as “loose cargo” (or Break bulk). Container vessels offers a very wide variety of ports on regular basis, however, being gearless they rely solely on the equipment of the ports. That means they will not necessary be able to accommodate larger yachts in all the ports they go to.
