Overseas Boat Shipping is easy for us since our staff streamlined the shipping process. We can ship Boats, Yachts, Racing Boats (Speed Boats), Tug Boats, Sail Boats, Life Boats & Ferries any port worldwide.
There are several shipping methods available:
RoRo Shipping (Roll-On Roll-Off)
RoRo Shipping Method in Overseas Boat Shipping is a simple, popular and easy way to ship your boat overseas. If your boat is on a trailer we can "Roll" your boat on and off, which makes this method cost effective. These RoRo ships also carry also Cars, Trucks and other Heavy Machinery overseas. RoRo ships are very large and shake much less at the stormy sea than the smaller vessels.
LoLo Shipping (Lift-On Lift-Off)
LoLo Shipping Method in Overseas Boat Shipping is by using a crane to lift your Boat or Yacht on and off from shipping vessels. Your boat or yacht will be lifted and secured onto the deck of a large International Boat Transporter. While this method is the fastest way to export your boat from the United States overseas, it is not the most cost effective because it is mandatory to have a crane operator on site both at the departure port and destination port
Boat Shipping Inside Ocean Shipping Container
Container “Safe-Tilt” boat shipping technique allows us to pack boats up to 28ft (8.53m) long, and 8.6ft (2.62m) beam (wide) into a 40’ HC ocean container. This method allows our customers to save 30%-40% of shipping costs compared to Ro-Ro (Roll-On, Roll-Off) and Lo-Lo (Lift-On, Lift-Off) methods. Fuel, oil, water have to be drained.
