Why is yacht transport by road better?

 

In pretty much all scenarios the cost to relocate your boat by road will be much less expensive compared to other forms of boat transportation in Melbourne. 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.

Typically the drive from Melbourne to Sydney is about 1,000 kilometres and can take between 10 and 20 hours excluding rest stops or depending on how heavy the load is.

Most trips are done on the M31 National Highway and this road is a direct inland rout. We can also take the coastal route to stop at places like Lakes Entrance, Cape Conran,  Mallacoota, Eden and other coastal locations.So it means we will sometimes break up our boat haulage trip to pick up or drop off other boats along the way. 

Most yachts are too large for most people to safely move on their own. That is why you have the option of driving your yacht by water which can be super expensive or hiring a boat transportation company to move your yacht by road.
 
Taking this option is the simplest and most efficient way to move your yacht.
Yes it is very easy to buy a yacht from a dealership, online auction or private seller in the Gold Coast then transport it by road to Sydney.
 
We can put it on our boat trailer and move it by road to a local marina in Sydney, a boat ramp or even a boat surveyor for you so that you can start using your yacht as quickly as possible
Well, yes of course a yacht is the same as a boat, they boat float right? Just kidding.
 
The definition of a yacht vs a large boat is actually a little grey as some people will use the names interchangeably. In most cases people think of a yacht as a big sailing boat. Although there are;

  • Motor yachts that are 20 to 50 foot in size and then there are
  • Superyachts that are 70 foot or larger and then
  • Megayachts that are 260 foot or longer.
 
Some people will refer to boats and yachts using the same naming even if they are 20 to 60 foot in size, it just depends what you are used to. Slip Away provides transport for Motor Yachts between Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne. There are different types of yachts and they are referred to as;
  • Motor Yacht: a yacht propelled via one or more motors
  • Gulet Yacht: a hybrid yacht with both sails and motors
  • Open Yacht, Cruiser, Cabin Cruiser, Express Cruiser: an otherwise uncategorised standard yacht for cruising and entertaining
  • Luxury Yacht: a yacht that includes high-end finishes and features and the latest in modern performance technology. The term ‘luxury’ can precede any type of yacht, i.e. “luxury motor yacht”, “luxury sailing yacht”, etc.
  • Sports Yacht: a yacht geared towards fishing, water sports, or cruising with a sleeker design and more powerful motor for faster cruising speeds. The term ‘sports’ can precede other types of yachts as well, i.e. “sports motor yacht”.
