What is the Cost of Overland Boat Shipping?

Boat shipping costs are undoubtedly one of the first things you think of when it comes time to transport. You want to make sure you’re getting the best price and the best service available. Several factors go into boat shipping costs, including:


Boat dimensions – the larger and heavier the boat, the more it’s going to cost to ship.

Distance – Shorter boat transports require less gas and may not have as many tolls, making the cost of hauling less.

Oversize Boats – Oversize boats will cost more to ship, not only because of their size, but because oversize loads require special permits for a safe trip.


Since there are so many varying factors that come with the cost of boat transport, it’s best to speak with a Heavy Haulers logistics agent. We are always transparent in our quotes, providing the best boat shipping prices available. Call now! (754) 732-0936

How to Ship a Boat Overseas

The best way to ship a boat overseas is to work with a logistics company, like Heavy Haulers, that has both boat transport experience and international shipping experience. We have a dedicated international team that understands the ins-and-outs of customs, preparing a boat for international transport, and more.


There are multiple options for overseas boat transport.


Roll-on/Roll-off (RO/RO): This is the most common option when shipping a boat overseas. Roll-on/Roll-off transport has the boat stay on the trailer (whether it’s your own personal boat trailer or a heavy duty trailer provided by the carrier) for the trip.


Enclosed Container: Most cargo ships and freighters carry enclosed shipping containers filled with various goods. Since the standard dimensions are 40’ long, 7’10” high, and 7’8” wide, you need to make sure your boat fits within the dimensions for this transport option. While this is less expensive than the roll-on/roll-off transport method, it is less utilized because boats rarely fit within the dimensions. Keep in mind that the trailer has to be included as well.


Flat Rack: – This is the most common method for oversize boat shipping. The boat is placed in a custom cradled that is strapped into the flat rack and secured to the cargo ship. With this method, high bridges and other bulk items should be removed—not only for safety, but to reduce costs.


Submersion: – The boat is loaded and unloaded directly from the water.


Call Heavy Haulers to determine the best method for shipping your boat overseas. Our international agents will guide you through every step of the process, including winterizing your boat. Shrink wrapping your boat may also be suggested to keep your boat safe from any minor dings during transport. (754) 732-0936


Shipping a Large Boat

It’s no secret boats come in all shapes and sizes, from small fishing boats to oversize yachts. When you need to ship a large boat, different factors may come into play. If it doesn’t fit standard dimensions, it becomes an oversize or wide load. Large boat transport in this area requires extra paperwork and permits for transport. If you need loading assistance, such as cranes, Heavy Haulers can provide that for you. We pair you with a driver that has experience in shipping large boats, so that you’re confident in the transport. Planning out the best route ahead of time is essential. This way, any hazards, such as low bridges, and high tolls can be avoided. Shipping large boats requires extra attention to detail, and at Heavy Haulers, we always provide. Call now! (754) 732-0936

Boat Transport 101: Determining The Best Shipping Process

Determining the best boat transport options for you is based on many things. What kind of boat are you shipping? Where are you shipping it to? When do you need the boat delivered? Are there tolls involved? All those questions and more need to be answered when you’re transporting a boat. Each of these factors goes into the cost of shipping a boat. A shorter boat transport will be less than a cross-country boat haul. If your boat is oversize, like say a yacht, then specialty permits and routes will need to be established. When you call Heavy Haulers, one of our transportation specialists will gather all the information. Then, they’ll put together a custom boat shipping solution that’s tailored to fit your needs. We provide a quality boat shipping experience for every client. Call now! (754) 732-0936

Common Boats Heavy Haulers Transports

These low-slung boats have plenty of horsepower and are among the easiest to transport due to their lower profile and shallow hulls.

They're best for water sports on lakes and inland waterways, and not generally used for fishing. Heavy seas or deep water may cause these boats to take on water in the gunwales.

These fast powerboats have most of the passenger accommodations in the small cabin.

These larger boats may be considered fishing boats, but with their power and deeper hull, they're also ideal for a range of water fun, like water skiing, gunkholing, or oyster tonging. A smaller cabin has enough amenities for passenger comfort, while the center-mounted steering console allows maneuverability and speed. These "do everything" boats are perfect for the angler who enjoys lake, sea, bay, and river fishing.

FISHING BOAT
HAULING

All-purpose fishing boats are the perfect choice for the year-round angler. These have a deeper V hull and higher sides compared to a bass fishing boat's lower profile.

These boats have either a steering wheel or tiller, live storage, and plenty of room for poles and extra gear.
