Boats and yachts shipping

Did you know that even a skilled captain would take around 8-10 days to take you to Europe from the USA in a ship?

And we are talking about some really good water vehicles. Normally boats are not even capable of traveling that far. Therefore, if you want your boat to be shifted to Europe from the USA, driving it there might not be a feasible option. CMSDIVINE solves this problem by providing complete sea transportation of your boats and other vehicles from the ports of the USA.

In this article, we will talk about how you can easily ship your boats and other water vehicles to Europe and Africa.

Which shipping type should I choose?

Ohhhk! Let us start with this doubt. There are primarily two ways to transport your boats and yachts overseas by sea:

  • Lift on Lift off (LoLo)
  • Roll on Roll off (RoRo)

In RoRo shipping your boat or any other water vehicle will be simply rolled onto the deck of the shipping vessel and rolled off at your destination port. It is the most common form of transportation type used by boat owners.

If the dimensions of your boat are too large for RoRo, then you will be suggested to use LoLo by your transportation managing company. In this service, your boat will be lifted by a crane to be placed on the ship and then the crane will also be used to remove it from the ship at the destination port.

If you are confused about which type of shipping, should you choose, then you can always contact us from here.

How many days will it take?

Before diving into how much it will cost to ship your vehicle overseas to Western Africa or Europe, let us first see how many days it will take.

Normally the time of transportation of road vehicles is majorly divided into two parts:

  • Pickup and Delivery
  • Transit time in the sea

But since your boat is already in the sea, you just need to bring your boat to the loading port which might not take a lot of time depending upon your boat’s location.

You can easily expect the transportation days to be a minimum of two weeks to around a month in some cases. You can get the exact number of days by consulting our team of highly qualified professionals who can give you an exact number depending upon your delivery country and city.

How is the cost calculated?

And in the end, it all boils down to the cost, isn’t it? Well, on an average the price of shipping your boat to Europe or Africa starts from around $1000 but it can vary a lot depending upon the factors mentioned below.

  • Transport type

Have you opted for RoRo or LoLo shipping? Generally, RoRo shipping is cheaper than LoLo shipping as it does not include crane charges.

  • Dimensions and Weight of the boat or yacht

More is the dimension, the more space it will cover on the ship and more amount will be charged from you. See the below table for a rough idea of your vehicle type.

Small BoatsBeam under 7’ 9’’
Medium BoatsBeam: 7’9”- 8’6”
Large BoatsBeam over 8’6” and length below 38’ 2”
YachtsLength over 39’5″
  • Distance

It is the most important factor in cost consideration. More is the distance; more is the cost.
