Here’s a short overview of how International Boat Transport process works:
After accepting the quote and terms from our Company – Make the reservation
Our team will contact you (or the seller of the boat) to review the details and set up shipping dates.
Confirm that all required documents including the boat title and bill of sale are available.
If you requested the pick up – we will dispatch the tow-away or trucking company to pick up the boat / yacht. If you’re delivering the boat to the port or warehouse yourself – we will provide the delivery instructions and documents.
Your boat will be shipped depending on the type of the service we agreed: ++ with roll-on roll-off service your boat will stay at the port until the next Ro/Ro vessel arrives for loading. No unrelated items inside the boat are allowed. ++ with full container load or flat-rack service your boat will be loaded right away. You may have extra items inside the boat and container ++with lift-on lift-off service your boat / yacht will be lifted from the water & secured to a cradle before it’s loaded onto the vessel’s deck
We file the export declaration and submit the boat title / bill of sale to US Customs for export clearance
Boat / Yacht (or container with the boat) is loaded onto the ocean vessel
The vessel operator provides us with the shipping document – Bill of Lading. It may take 3-5 days after the vessel departure.
We will issue Marine Insurance if you requested it
We will request the final payment for our service (if it hasn’t been done earlier)
All shipping documents and your boat title & bill of sale are returned to you by mail (as per options you selected on your Booking Form)
We will provide you the contact details of the port agent so you can get ready to receive your boat at the destination.
