Boat Transport

We transport powerboats and sailboats up to 50' as well as wooden boats. All of our equipment is designed to adequately and safely support your boat and its accompanying structures such as a fly bridge or mast.

When shipping a boat from marina to marina, please choose a marina or boatyard with at least 14' overhead clearance, with no low tree branches or wires on its approach. Legal height is 13'6" high. That means when the boat is on our trailer that is what the overall height is. Usually if the boat height is 12' we are within the legal height limitations. Don't worry if you measure your boat and it is over 12' high. Usually something can be taken off (like a fly bridge or bow pulpit) or we can stick the keel into the trailer, which will also lower the overall height of the load.

Boats that are over 8'6 wide are considered an "oversize load" and will require permits to be trucked in every state. These permits will be obtained by us and are included as part of the hauling charges. Boats that are over 12' wide may require an "certified escort". This too is a extra charges that will be included in your transport charges. The only time you will run into extra charges is if we are re-routed by the state when ordering the oversized permits. This will happen when there is road construction or some other detour that will not allow your boat to go on that particular road. When we are re-directed it adds additional mileage to the trip you will be charged per mile over and above the mileage quoted in your contract for this particular haul.

For your convenience we have various boat trailers that are sure to fit your needs. All equipment is air-ride in order to allow a smooth ride for the over the road transport of your boat. Our 53' low boy or belly trailer can safely support large oversized boats or multiple boats thereby lowering your boat transport costs.

Do you want to bring your boat home to save on storage costs at a marina or to be able to do work on your boat at your convenience in your own yard? Our 45' hydraullic trailer can self-load and unload power and sailboats of any size. As long as we can get the rig in your yard you supply the blocking and/or jack stands and the boat is where you want it to be.

We are fully insured and have never had a claim in our 25 years in business. We carry $1,000,000.00 liability and $500,000.00 cargo insurance. Proof of insurance is available upon request.

When you contract us to haul a boat for you more than likely you will be given two prices. One if we can deliver the boat with another boat on the same trailer or if it can be done at the time that we have a return load to fill in the "dead head" or empty miles. Most of the time if you can book the job in advance or give a good window of trucking dates we can put the load together with either another boat or a return load thereby lowering your trucking costs.

Once you have decided to use us as your trucking company, you will be sent a contract which you will need to sign and return to us with a deposit of half of the hauling charges. This deposit will allow us to look for another boat to be transported at the same time as yours either as an additional boat on the trailer or as a return load. The balance is due by official bank check, credit card or cash.
