Get boat haulage
from Sydney to Melbourne

Slip Away can haul large boats without a trailers interstate


Haul a boat without a trailer from Sydney Boathouse Marina

Slip Away loves visiting the crew at Sydney Boathouse marina. We are often visiting to pick up or deliver large boats that don’t have trailers. We provide boat haulage from locations like Sydney Boathouse Marina Berths & Dry Storage to either a boat ramp, another marina or to a workshop for engine servicing

If you don’t own a trailer or vehicle you can hire Slip Away to haul your boat by road. We go to the marina and collect the boat using our our heavy duty trailer to then drive it by road to the locations you need it taken to – even if that is interstate to Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide or Perth.

For this job we picked up a Chris Craft Launch 28 from marina storage and put it onto one of our heavy duty boat haulage trailers. Sydney Boathouse is one of the best marina locations because it gives you direct access to the harbour with a choice of dry boat storage, marina berths, parking, servicing, boat dealers, fuel and other related services. With a central location in Rozelle it is just minutes from the CBD & main road access.

Once we safely loaded the Chris Craft we had to start the road journey from Sydney to Melbourne to drop the boat off at R & M Boat Maintenance and Repairs on the Mornington Peninsular in Melbourne. 

This is a great example of getting interstate boat haulage from Sydney to Melbourne which can save money compared to driving the boat by water & hiring a skipper. The Chris Craft would not be an ideal marine vessel to drive by sea for such a long journey, plus there is the cost of fuel, engine hours & even safety aspects to consider.

Relocating your boat from Sydney to Melbourne with a haulage company

R & M Mobile Marine Services is a boating service facility that can do maintenance or repairs for all brands of outboard motors and inboard engines. They even have indoor & outdoor storage facilities to store marine vessels. They are an authorised Yamaha and Volvo Penta service centre for the Mornington Peninsular.

Our trip by road takes one to two days depending on the load we need to haul. It is about 1,000kms distance from Sydney to Melbourne and this type of long distance boat haulage transportation is what we specialise in. As always we were able to deliver the Chris Craft interstate ready for the owner to use in Melbourne.

Boat hauling by road from Sydney to Mornington Peninsular Melbourne

The Mornington Peninsular in Melbourne is one of the most popular places for water lovers to enjoy being on the water with their boats. The peninsular provides an abundance of activities for both avid marine lovers or those curious or looking to explore this aquatic wonderland for the first time. Slip Away gets asked all the time to move boats there. It’s a destination with family-friendly bay beaches and wild rugged ocean coastlines waiting to be surfed with many species of fish, and a multitude of marine plant species.  It’s an amazing marine environment that offers a place where marine life from the cooler waters of western Victoria meet the warm water species from eastern Australia.  

For those that love a bit of diving or snorkeling, there are beautiful rocky reefs, seagrass meadows, sandy plains and sponge gardens. You can even swim with dolphins, meet cheeky Australian fur seals, or snorkel with delicate weedy sea dragons.

We often get asked to transport boats to the local ramps
