An alternative to boat trailer hire

The easier option vs boat trailer hire.

You actually don’t need to hire a boat trailer and experience the cost, risk or time lost trying to move a boat yourself. By hiring a mobile boat cradle or one of our mobile boat slips you can save time, money and stress because we do all the work for you. Our personal service is door to door meaning we’ll meet you at the boat and move your boat where you need it. 


Better yet, unlike a traditional boat trailer, we have specifically designed our cradles so you can work on your boat while it is on our cradle, including things like anti-fouling. You could even have your boat moved to multiple locations while it is out of the water, a mobile cradle is a perfect alternative to buying or boat trailer hire.


  • A mobile slip cradle is shorter than a typical trailer
  • The height of a mobile slip cradle is lower than a boat trailer.
  • We do everything for you when hiring our mobile slip cradle


A mobile slip cradle in action

Here is an example of using a mobile slip cradle instead of a boat trailer.  This Monterey 270 Cruiser Boat was restored by Adam Hayter Shipwrights in Gosford. We picked up the boat from the ramp, transported it to Adam’s shipyard and returned it to the water a few weeks later. The Monterey as you can see in the images has great access to the hull area making it easy for restorations or other maintenance work to be done on the boat like anti-fouling. You could even have your boat moved to different places to then have the engine worked on, cabin etc.

Australian boat transportation reviews for Slip Away

"I can't recommend Slip Away enough, he moved my boat today absolutely effortless and with all care taken, a true professional and knows his stuff!
Even built me a frame for my boat to sit on while I work on it. Look forward to using Peter again in a couple months when it goes back in the water"
"Amazing!!!! After 4 long months of restoring my boat if excitement and nerves weren't enough I discovered a leak when she went in the water. My heart sank "what to do"

Peter was amazing quickly helped put her back on the trailer (not an easy feat in itself) not only did he hang around while I tried to find the leak he was right there helping all the way.

Could have been such a different story he was patient, understanding and helpful. Would not use anyone else would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone."
