There are 2 main ways to ship a boat:
1) RoRo Method (Roll on, Roll Off)
One very popular method of International Boat Shipping is using our RoRo shipping services. If we can “Roll” your boat on and off, this can be the most cost effective & safest way to ship your boat overseas. Also there is a lot of room when shipping large vessels. These RoRo ships also transport Cars, Buses & Heavy Construction Vehicles, therefore, helping to lower the overall cost of shipping. RoRo ships are big and rock much less at sea than the smaller vessels.
2) LoLo Method (Lift On, Lift Off)
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. Below are a few pictures 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.
- While there are other methods of International Boat Shipping, the 2 methods RoRo & LoLo are the safest and most cost effective.
- ONLY use a well establish company whose specialty is to export Vessels and Vehicles from USA. Do not use a company who only ships within the United States. You don’t want to run into customs problems using them.
