Experienced boat mover

Slip Away is an Australian boat transport company based in New South Wales. Slip Away has been moving boats by road in Sydney and interstate for many years with experience handling all types of marine vessels safely for boat owners. 

We can transport models from boat manufacturers like Arvor, Bayliner, Sea Ray, Mustang, Cruise Craft and many others with a focus on providing our transportation services on the east coast with regular trips made between New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. 

Slip Away is considered one of the best boat transport companies in the country and unlike others, we don’t operate via depots, storage areas, or marinas. 

The Slip Away service is ‘door to door’ meaning that we come to you no matter where your boat is located, we can even meet you at a boat ramp and pull your vessel out of the water to provide cheap boat transport costs.

Heavy load boat transportation

Slip Away owns a fleet of specialised boat trailers that have been developed and designed to make transporting your boat by road 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 online from Grays Boat Auctions.

Our boat transportation service can accommodate any situation when it comes to marine transport. It is cheaper and more cost-effective to have your boat transported by road 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, breakdowns or tides.


Boat moving to get servicing

When it comes to servicing or storing your boat our mobile slip cradle rental service 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 with the hull 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 than having things done by a marina.

Cheaper than paying marina fees

Instead of paying a local marina to lift your boat out of the water, we can pick your vessel up at a nearby boat ramp instead

There is no easier way to get your boat out of the water in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Gold Coast than by doing this. It is also the cheapest and most effective way to reduce marina fees.

In the process of putting your boat on our trailer, we can also be able to take it to another location to get services, or even help you put it into storage or have restoration work done.
