Whether you are a novice, a seasoned boater or somewhere in between, we can guarantee that attending a boat show will be an educational and fulfilling experience. And, we have just the event for you: the 2020 Palm Beach International Boat Show, taking place March 26 – 29.
As one of the top five boats shows in the country, you can expect to see hundreds of yachts and superyachts, live demonstrations, the latest in marine technology, as well as plenty of educational and fun activities. You will also get the chance to listen to some of the leaders in the industry lecture as well as share your vision and experience with other boaters just like you.
And, if you need to ship your yacht to the show, then we can make that possible for you.
Here’s what you need to know.
Do I Really Need to Hire Someone for This?
While there are superyachts that can travel long nautical miles or even cross the Atlantic, most of them have a range of about 200 NM. Not only that but traveling long distances can damage your boat as the salty air, wind, and bad weather can alter your equipment.
Using your yacht carrier to transport your ship to your next destination is an excellent way to protect it from wear and tear. It’s fast, cost-effective, and less stressful than doing it on your own.
His Do I Get My Yacht Ready for Transport?
If you need to ship your yacht but you’ve never done this before, there are a few things you can do in preparation for the process.
- Secure Everything: It doesn’t matter if the trip is a short or long one, you should secure everything as if you were about to cross the ocean. Don’t forget to tape the interior cabinet doors shut too
- Send The Yacht Specs: Send all the necessary details about your boat’s specs to the transport company. Make sure that the information is correct and accurate as the company will allocate space for your yacht according to this day
- Inspect Your Boat: Inspect every inch of your boat carefully and take pictures of the damages that already exist. That way, you can actually verify if the company transported the boat to the destination safely.
- Make Your Ship as Light as Possible: Empty the fuel tank, take out any unnecessary items, remove anchor, and empty the water tanks. You will want to make the vessel as light as possible.
