Miami - Yacht Shipping Central

So, you’ve decided that you want to attend the 2020 Miami Yacht Show. That’s great as this edition is sure to be a fantastic one. Just note that this year, the show will take place in a different location, just north of downtown Miami along Biscayne Bay near the Adrienne ArshtCenter for the Performing Arts, Art Wynwood.

Now, the question you may be asking yourself is: how do you transport your mega yacht there. Shipping it by land isn’t really an option and sailing there might not be feasible either.

So, what do you do? How do you ship your yacht if you want to attend the 2020 Miami Yacht Show, for example?

Here’s what you need to know about the transportation of mega yachts.


First Thing First: Work with a Reputable Company 

Your yacht was a serious investment so you definitely don’t want to let just anyone handle it. Unfortunately, there are many frauds in the yacht shipping services that allure customers with cheap offers. Most, however, lack the necessary skills and equipment to complete complex tasks such as the transportation of mega yachts.

If the offer you get from the carrier is incredibly low, most probably, you are giving up something instead, like the quality of service or specialized gear.

With United Yacht Transport, you can rest assured that you will get a team of highly capable professionals who know what they are doing and are doing it with a passion. You can expect stellar, innovative service when you work with us as we are the largest and most progressive yacht transport company in North America.

How Are Yachts Shipped Exactly?

There are three different ways of loading and shipping a yacht and the one that works for you will depend on the size and mobility of your boat.

  • Roll-On / Roll-Off 

This is the most common way of transporting a boat as it is safe and requires little handling. The boat is secure throughout the entire trip, so the risk of damaging it is minimal.

  • Lift On / Lift Off 

When it comes to mega yachts that can’t just be transported by land, then lifting it on is often the best solution. The yacht will be parked alongside the shipping vessel. Divers secure the boat with the lifting slings that are connected to the vessel. Then, the yacht is slowly lifted from the water on to the shipping vessel where is firmly secured.

  • Float On / Float Off 

Perhaps the best option for the transportation of mega yachts is the use of a shipping vessel equipped with a float on / float off the deck. The deck will be submerged into a floating marina and the fact will simply sail into the carrier.
