We ship boats, yachts, sailboats, and jet skis internationally

As an international car shipping company based in the USA, shipping to another country is a breeze for us. We have been shipping motorcycles overseas for over 34 years! When you choose us as your international motorcycle shipper, you will get your motorcycle in the same condition as when you handed it over to us. In addition, we can pick up your motorcycle at your front door and ship it to any country (door-to-port). Alternatively, you can take the motorcycle to the departure shipping port yourself, and we will ship it to the destination port (port-to-port). You always have the option of having us pick up your motorcycle from any door in the USA, or you can save the money and take it to the shipping docks yourself. We ship:

  • Boats
  • Yachts
  • Sailboats
  • Jet Skis

Whether you are shipping a boat or yacht, your vehicle will be handled safely.

We handle all US Customs clearance. Our staff will walk you through the whole boat shipping process.

Remember, once you get your pricing in the email, you can place your order and pay later. You don’t have to pay right away.

Our shipping vessels depart on a weekly basis from U.S. seaports, and we offer several vehicle shipping methods and additional services, to meet all your overseas boat shipping needs:

RoRo Shipping

RoRo ships are vessels built for shipping wheeled cargo, more specifically – shipping motor cars and boats. The boats are driven on to the ship almost like it was a parking garage. The name Roll-on/Roll-off comes from the fact that vehicles roll-on/roll-off the ramp, which is how they are driven on and off the ship.

Once loaded on the RoRo vessel, each boat is strapped and secured to prevent movement while at sea. The metal protector under the boat is locked into place with the ship’s deck to prevent slipping and sliding when out to sea, and the tires can’t move because they are securely embedded in the metal protector (as shown in the picture).

This shipping method has proved highly efficient and extremely cost-effective. It has an additional advantage: it provides reliable departure and arrival dates. The ship’s departure and arrival schedule runs almost like an airline flight schedule.

LoLo Shipping

Another method of International Boat Shipping is by using a crane. Your boat will be lifted and secured onto the deck of a large International Boat Transporter, as shown in the picture of a yacht being lifted and secured onto the deck of a ship. This particular ship crosses the Atlantic Ocean and can make it to Europe in about 10 days. 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.

Marine Insurance

Ship Overseas recommends that all shipments be insured for transit cargo insurance (marine insurance) on a first dollar basis for losses incurring in transit.

We offer FULL COVER Marine Insurance against Loss or Damage from the time your vehicle is loaded onto the Vessel for shipment at a rate of 1.5% of the value you wish to Insure for.

Important info to Ship a Car Overseas:
  • No car can leave USA if it has a lien on it. What does this mean? Your car must be paid in full. The only people who can ship a car overseas and still carry a lien on the car are US Military and Government employees/contractors. For those people a letter of authorization from the lender will need to be issued to pass US Customs. Otherwise the car may be considered stolen.
  • A clear Title of Ownership with no Liens on the Title.
  • If you bought a car new, then your name must be listed on the front of the Title as the registered owner.
  • If the vehicle has been sold, then both the Seller and Buyer have to sign the back of the Title in the spaces as detailed on the back of the Title.
  • For safety reasons, the vehicle cannot have more than a ¼ tank of gas.
Travel & Living Abroad:
  • Most countries will allow a traveler to temporarily import their car for up to 6 months. After the 6 months is up, import duty will be charged. For many travelers going to Europe and taking their car, a deposit is paid up front. When the car goes back to it’s destination country, the deposit is refunded. If a person has lived in USA for 1 or more years, most countries will allow that person to bring their car back duty free! The car must not have any liens on it. Please check with your Customs Department first.
Import Duty for Destination Country:
  • Import duty is NOT collected by Ship Overseas. It must be paid at the arrival port by whoever is picking up the car. We wrote a blog post about vehicle import duty here. It talks about how to find out import duty for your country.
