Transport by truck to the final destination.
The main problem for yacht transports by truck is width and height restrictions. To reduce the height, it is therefore almost exclusively transported with low loaders, which can be adjusted in height and in which the lowest points of the yacht are often only a few centimeters above the carriageway.

Usually yachts up to a total length of approx. 55 feet and a maximum width of approx. 15 feet and a height of approx. 13 feet are still transported by truck. These yachts usually weigh less than 30 tons. But here, too, exceptions confirm the rule. Occasionally, yachts with larger widths and heights of well over 15 feet are transported by road.

Truck transportation costs approximately $ 7 per mile.

Our Shipping Method for Yachts til 20m/60feet LOA.

Carrier for Yacht shipping, between USA & Mediterranean

We are shipping yachts worldwide with Ro/Ro cargo ships. This method is considered the safest and most cost-effective maritime transport for yachts up to 20m. Ro/Ro vessels only accept rolling cargo, which is driven into the interior of the ship via a ramp. That’s why we build a frame for your yacht which is put on a transport cart. Modern Ro/Ro carriers can carry 6,000 vehicles, excavators, machinery, trains up to 6m high, 9m wide, 30m long and 300 tonnes in weight. The deck height is adjustable so that a maximum of volume can be loaded, which reduces costs. Only Ro/Ro ships carry very sensitive and expensive manufactured goods. Your yacht will be transported dry and protected from the elements.

Yacht shipping as Deck cargo

Ro/Ro ships also offer the option of transporting yachts on the top deck outdoors. We offer this service if you do not want to lay your mast. Especially large yachts or catamarans wider than 9m are also transported on deck. These yachts are shrink-wrapped before transport to protect them from the elements and fumes. Otherwise, the procedure is the same for Ro/Ro.

Our Yacht Shipping Method for Super-Yachts

Yacht shipping Lift on / Lift off

Yacht shipping Lo/Lo is used when yachts are transported on the deck of a cargo vessel. Yachts are lifted and placed on deck using the vessel’s own cranes and then secured in a tailor made steel construction called a ‘cradle’. Lift-on/lift-off ships are cargo ships with on-board cranes to load and unload Yachts. As container ships usually have no on-board cranes or other mechanism to load or unload their cargo they are dependent on dockside container cranes to load and unload your Yacht. lift-on/lift-off vessels can load and unload their own cargo (including your Yacht) unassisted. Lift-on/lift-off vessels can operate out of docks with no dockside cargo handling equipment. Marine Project has access to a range of vessels suitable for this type of loading. Lo/Lo is the best method of transport for bigger yachts and superyachts.

Yacht shipping Float on / Float off

The Float On / Float Off yacht transport method, also known as the Semi-Submersible, is extremely versatile. There is virtually no limit to the size and shape of yacht that can be transported by sea. In this yacht and superyacht transport method your yacht sails normally until it is alongside the specialized yacht transport ship. First the transport deck of the ship is submerged and then your yacht is floated into position above a special cradle system under the water. Water is slowly released from the tanks aboard the transport ship and the deck rises to allow securing of the yacht to the cradle. Upon arrival at the destination, this procedure is reversed to discharge your boat.

Would you like to inform yourself about boat transporting or carrying boats? Most Asked Questions about Yacht shipping: How much does it cost to transport a yacht by sea? The cost for yacht transport by sea transportation depends on the distance and the needs for your yacht to be safely transported. The average cost is around $20.000 to $30.0000 for the transport of a 15 – 20m yacht from EU to USA. Due to the fact that many companies offer the service of yacht shipping overseas, international boat shipping cost has declined. Our estimate is based on an average-size boat going to or from Europe/USA. Most boats od yachts are shipped using roll-on, roll-off (RORO) transport. Boats can also be loaded directly onto a transport ship using submersion loading. For larger sized yachts that are shipped overseas, they may need to be shipped in their own cradle, which usually costs a bit more.
