FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept.  2, 2015 — Choosing the best yacht transport company is crucial in the safe and secure transfer of your vessel from point A to point B. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, discusses a few factors all yacht owners should consider when looking for a reliable transport company.


  1. Transport options. The size of your vessel determines how it can be transported. Small yachts are equipped for road transport, while larger yachts can be transported on a container vessel or by a carrying company. Contracting with an exclusive yacht carrier that specializes transports of this size is extremely beneficial, as you are handing over your vessel to a company that encompasses an expert and highly qualified staff.
  2. Pricing. While going with the company that offers you the lowest price for its service may seem like the best option, it may not always work out in your favor. Transport companies may try to lure in business with low prices, but not be able to follow through. Seek companies who strive to develop long-term relationships through reliable service, and avoid those who are just looking for a one-time transaction.
  3. Delivery and cancellations. Make sure that your yacht transporter provides you with a reasonable window of time for delivery. While it is unfeasible to provide an accurate arrival date due to uncontrollable conditions, an acceptable window of time should always be laid out in the agreement. However, assure that your yacht transport provider clearly defines a cancellation date in the contract. Non-performance warrants a cancellation, and you should make sure you are covered in the event of an substantial delay in transport.
