Container Boat Shipping
Container international boat shipping method we use when a boat is too wide to be rolled straight inside the shipping container. We turn a boat on it’s side and safely load inside a 40’HC container using tilt method and custom made shipping cradle. Fuel, oil, water are drained, tops, windshields are removed if needed, batteries disconnected. Boat trader’s most economical boat transport method when multiple boats with trailers are shipped inside the same shipping container.
As you are aware, there are many ways to ship a boat from US overseas, if your boat has a beam (width) of less than 8вЂ™6вЂќ or (102′) (2.59 meters), and is less than 36′ in total length, one method stands out as being more cost effective than any other methods. Shipping one or more boats inside a shipping container has proven to be an economical method for years, but shipping boats with a beam larger then 7’5″ wide has always been difficult. But with our many years of experience, and proven packing and loading methods, not only is shipping larger boats possible, it is safer than ever.
With the fabrication of a steel shipping cradle, that is fitted to match your boat specifications, we can load your boat into the container by loading the boat on an angle. We can accommodate for instance large 28′ power boat with 2 jet skis including their trailers or 25′ fishing boat together with 17′ bow rider with their trailers inside the same 40′ HC shipping container. These custom made shipping cradles, combined with specialized strap and support systems designed by us, you can rest assure your boat will arrive safe and damage free.
