Is boat haulage by road cheaper than by water?

There are thousands of nautical miles between major waterways or cities of Australia because our country is so large. This can mean it might take a few days to drive a boat by water adding hundreds of engine hours which is expensive to maintain. Going by road is more direct, faster & more reliable.

Our most common routes are;

  • Sydney to Melbourne
  • Sydney to Brisbane
  • Sydney to Gold Coast

In practically every scenario the cost to move a large boat using the main roads from Sydney to other locations will be less expensive compared to other forms of transportation. To compare the costs to boat shipping or delivery by water try and find out a few things like;

  • The total nautical mile distance that has to be travelled
  • The estimated cost of fuel for the boat
  • How many operating hours will be added to the engine & what may be the potential servicing cost?
  • An estimated value for the wear and tear the vessel will experience as it is exposed to ocean waters
  • How many people will be needed to drive it, do you have to hire a skipper or crew?
  • What is the cost to tow the boat over water if it breaks down?
  • If the weather or the ocean swells are too dangerous & the trip is cancelled, what costs are incurred?
  • Is your boat insured for that type of use or even suitable to be taken outside the heads?

Once you spend some time to consider the real costs you will quickly realise that using a boat transporter in Sydney is a much better option. Slip Away’s has a fleet of transportation vehicles and trailers that have been specifically designed for the purpose of moving wide, heavy loads, we often travel to the Gold Coast, Port Douglas, Cairns, Airlie Beach, Fraser Island and even Yeppoon.
