How to save on international boat shipping and minimize transportation costs.
Measurements. When transporting a boat internationally, it is crucial to measure it properly in order to determine the most efficient method of transport, obtain an accurate shipping quote, apply for all required transportation permits, etc. For example, boats exceeding 8’6” in width will require DOT permits in each state; boats over 11 ft wide require special escorts. Height restrictions differ from state to state, that's why it is important for the boat transporter to know the full overall length (LOA), width (beam) and height of your boat in order to safely deliver it to the port.
It is possible to obtain some basic boat measurements from the manufacturer; some websites, such as Nada, provide that information as well, however please note that your actual measurements may be different; in addition, manufacturers' specifications do not provide height information, neither do they estimate dimensions including trailer.
