FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 13, 2015: After just two short years, United Yacht Transport has quickly made a name for itself as the North American leader in boat transport. Its innovative techniques paired with top-tier employees have enabled the company to successfully transport thousands of yachts and boats worldwide. United Yacht Transport explains what puts them ahead of the rest.


What are the key benefits of choosing United Yacht Transport over other transport companies?

Safe, reliable transport and unparalleled customer service have led United Yacht Transport to become the largest transporter in North America. The company has shipped more boats between the East and West Coasts of America in the last year than any other carrier. Each vessel is handled safely and securely, as if it belonged to the company itself.


How exactly does a yacht get transported? What is the process like?

United Yacht Transport operates through a lift on, lift off process. Prior to loading, boats are parked alongside United Yacht’s vessel. Lifting slings are lowered from the transport vessel into the water. Drivers then secure the boat to the slings using marked lifting points, and the boat is lifted into a cradle on the transport vessel. Straps and chains secure the boat in for safe and secure transport.


What makes lifters certified to handle yachts?

Each of United Yacht Transport’s employees has gone through rigorous training and has handled 8,000 yachts.


How long does it take to load and unload a yacht?

The entire process of loading and unloading generally takes about an hour or two, depending on the vessel.


What is the furthest United Yacht Transport has transported, and what are its plans for the future? 

Thus far, Singapore is the furthest that United Yacht Transport has transported. The company focuses on the East and West Coasts of America and the Mediterranean, but plans on expanding more into the Mediterranean and Asia to meet the demands of the market.



United Yacht Transport is the premier worldwide yacht transporter and offers cost effective yacht transport and boat shipping services. United Yacht Transport ships worldwide to Mexico, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Asia and the Mediterranean. As the North American leader in yacht transportation, United Yacht Transport prides itself on reliability, safe transport, and unparalleled customer service.
