How to ship a boat?
Discover how to save on boat shipping by comparing quotes from specialist couriers and carriers.
Add a boat shipping request
It takes just 2 minutes and a few simple steps: enter the make and model of the boat, inflatable boat or motorboat, the pick-up and delivery addresses, and your details. All that's left for you to do is send the request and receive quotes from our certified carriers.
Choose from our carriers' offers
Check out the quotes that you receive from our carriers specialised in boat shipping and choose your preferred offer, booking directly on our site. After paying a deposit, you can then agree on the pick-up and delivery details with the carrier.
Your boat is already on its way safely
Once you have booked, you will be contacted by the courier, who will take care of and handle the boat shipping service. You don't need to worry about anything else. The boat will be hoisted onto a lorry fitted with an adjustable cradle and transported safely, even if it is an oversized load, to the delivery address indicated by you.

The 4 steps to safe and fast boat shipping
Fill in the pick-up and delivery addresses carefully and let us know the make and model of your boat, giving us all the directions we need to fully understand your pick-up and delivery requirements, whether in a port or on land.
Provide the carrier with all the information needed for an on-time delivery and specify the dimensions of the hull (particularly the width) and the masts (for sailboats).
We collect your boat at the agreed address with the most suitable vehicle for the type of craft in question. The carrier will contact you a few days in advance to set the pick-up date and time. You (or the boathouse where your boat is stored) will be responsible for the cost of loading it onto the lorry.
The courier will transport your boat to the agreed address or port, delivering it on time. The use of a crane to launch your boat upon delivery must be organised in advance by you or together with the carrier.
You can relax. Let us handle the shipping.
