In pretty much all scenarios the cost to get your boat delivered by road will be much less expensive compared to other forms of boat transportation. You can easily compare the costs of boat shipping or even water delivery. You have to consider things such as;
- The cost of boat fuel.
- Wear and tear if travelling on the open ocean.
- The amount of unnecessary engine hours.
- The cost of a skipper or crew to manage the boat.
- What happens if there is a break down while it is on the ocean.
- How to manage bad weather or changing sea swells.
Slip Away’s specialised fleet of trucks and trailers have been specifically designed for moving heavy loads by road. It is now accepted and very common for owners to transport their vessels by road.
Slip Away offers large boat delivery services. You might want to have your boat delivered from the marina to the boat ramp or a used boat delivered online when you are selling or buying. This can even include having the boat lifted onto our trailer with a crane or floating it on at a boat ramp.
There is a fleet of boat transport vehicles that Slip Away has access to that can move boats in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. Depending on your boat’s origin and destination, we will be able to determine the most cost-effective way to transport it. Our team can move boats from houses, marinas, storage facilities, ramps or boat dealers.
We can relocate large boats with these sizes;
- 10 to 33 feet long
- 1 to 10 tonnes
- Up to 5 metres high
- Up to 3.5 metres wide
All of this will depend on the combined weight and size of your boat as well as the trailer we need to use. You should contact us to get a cost estimate and to give us a little more information about the boat you are moving.
The most popular boat relocation destinations are the Gold Coast Runaway Bay, Sanctuary Cove Gold Coast, Gold Coast City Marina, Hastings Melbourne, Rose Bay Sydney, Nelson Bay Central Coast
Boat relocation costs vary depending on distance and what equipment is needed to move the type of boat you have safely. The cost could be as little as $400 for local relocations or $1,000 to $3,000 for longer distance or large boat relocations.
Australia is well known for is coastal people who love the outdoor lifestyle that it creates. So everything from our food to our homes are designed around enjoying the outdoors. So that is also why we love being in our boats on the water and it is estimated that 10 percent of overnight accommodation stays are booked by people on a boating adventure.
There are approximately one million boats registered in Australia and 30,000 new boats are bought every year that get delivered. There are one million Australians with a boat license and one in five claim to be self proclaimed ‘boaties’ while 25 percent claim to go boating at some time during the year. Some say there are over 5 million boaties and Queensland is thought to have 34 percent of its population go boating.
The boating industry in Australia is estimated to be worth $8 billion with more than 3,500 marine businesses that employ over 28,000 people. Not many people realise but the Gold Coast is the key national centre for manufacturing of marine craft and we are often doing interstate boat transport from the Gold Coast to Sydney because there are over 450 marine companies there.
Slip Away is an Australian boat delivery company that has the knowledge and experience to do boat delivery from hundreds of locations. One of our first considerations when delivering a boat is thinking about the truck and trailer has access to perform the required manoeuvres or if there is the right amount of space to use a marina’s crane. We have experience and knowledge working with many of the marinas along the eastern seaboard of Australia & are familiar with hundreds of boat delivery locations, we can even help you work out the best places to get your boat delivered. Slip Away has its office in Sydney but we can deliver boats to Queensland, Victoria and practically anywhere in New South Wales. We often find ourselves delivering oversize boat loads into regional areas where there are big lakes or boat maintenance services.
We have custom designed boat trailers that can safely move your vessel either from a boat ramp or a marina. Our trailer equipment has been specifically made to transport boats with heavy duty support beams, cradling and support straps to make sure we can move large loads safely. Rather than buy your own trailer and worry about all the legal issues with moving large loads on the road, we can do it all for you. When we provide our boat delivery service we will make it easy by working closely with your marina or boat dealer to make sure there is a clear schedule including loading and unloading. We have lots of experience and understand how precious time is when getting boats in and out of the water so we maintain constant communication between all parties involved to ensure your boat delivery service is as smooth as possible.
