"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."

Yes we provide free quotations for all our boat freight services and need to know more details about the boat, location to/from and the timeframe you are working with.
Well boat shipping is the same as boat transport. We can move a small, big or large boat as well as yachts either in Sydney or interstate. We specialise in east coast boat transport.
This is one of those random questions about boat transport we get asked from time to time. Yes we can do transport and shipping for all types of boats including sailboats, yachts and houseboats.
Yes we have full Marine Transit Cover Insurance which insures your boat while it is being transported to give you peace of mind. This is not an additional charge or hidden expense, we included it in our pricing.
This will depend on the type of boat and the distance it needs to travel. Transporting a boat can take a day or a week it just depends on the circumstances but we can advise you at the time of getting a quote or making a booking.

We think buying a boat trailer is a waste of time and money. They can cost over ten thousand dollars and sit around most of the time not doing anything. You can hire a mobile slip cradle for as little as $66 per week.

No unfortunately, if you get involved it can actually make the process slower and add risk. Our team of professionals are fully qualified and have been handling boat transport situations for many years. You could provide a cup of coffee or a beer afterwards though.

We manufacture, design and service all our boat trailers in house using our expert knowledge and experience moving boats from all kinds of locations.
The earlier we know, the more flexible we can be with dates and times to transport your boat. If our week fills up then the transport dates available will be reduced as we have to manage trucks going up and down the coast.
