Slip Away is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide boat transportation service in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast or Melbourne from a boat ramp or marina.

We can pick up or deliver your boat to or from a marina with our boat trailer. We specialise in oversize boat transport like moving a boat from Gold Coast City Marina to Empire Marina in Bobbin Head in Sydney.

If you don’t have a boat trailer then you can still get your boat transported as we can meet you at a boat ramp to do float on float off boat transportation with our specialist trailer equipment.

Boat dealer delivery

We can pick up your boat from any dealer to get a boat surveyor inspection, have antifouling or other marine servicing completed. It makes it easy and affordable when buying a boat interstate or trying to move a boat without a trailer.

We are an experienced interstate boat transport company in Australia that has the knowledge, skill and equipment to safely move your boat. Fully insured & able to move boats up to 33 feet in New South Wales, Queensland or Victoria.

Slip Away has been delivering a range of specialist boat shipping and interstate boat transport solutions for vessel owners for many years in Australia. Our focus has been on east coast boat transport in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. We are one of the leading boat transport companies in the country. We don’t operate via depots, 3rd party storage areas or marinas, we come to you with our door to door service available anywhere your boat is located. Our goal is to minimise your boat shipping costs.


Our fleet of specialised boat trailers have been developed and designed to make transporting your boat quick, safe and efficient. You can move your boat in Sydney from one marina to another, relocate it interstate or even buy a used boat and have it brought to Sydney. Our boat transport service can accomodate any situation when it comes to marine transport. It is cheaper and more cost effective to have your boat transported by Slip Away’s transport services compared to hauling it by boat trailer or driving it over water. You can save on engine hours, fuel, time and avoid issues with weather or tides. 


When it comes to servicing or storing your boat our unique mobile slip cradle is a cost effective alternative to boat trailer hire or ownership. For as little as $66 per week you can have your boat out of the water available for servicing, upgrades or storage in practically any location. We pick it up from your house, a marina or can even do a ‘float on – float off’ at a local boat ramp. Our cradles even let you do things like anti-fouling services while remaining on the trailer with incredible hull access. Using our mobile slip cradle is more effective than boat trailer hire & less costly that having things done by a marina.


We can move boats by road of all types, shapes and sizes and are fully insured – we can do float on float off boat ramp pick ups or meet you at a marina.
