For many people looking for the perfect yacht at the perfect price outside of the U.S., buying one at the local market might not always be the ideal option. This is because the variety of brands and models offered locally tends to be quite limited. This, however, is not a problem when one looks at more varied markets like the boat market in the U.S., where every single brand and model is not only present, but available sometimes even far before than in the rest of the world.
This of course, makes the U.S. boat market the top choice for people looking to buy yachts or almost any other kind of boat. However, what most new buyers fail to consider (or at least fail to understand in its full magnitude), is that simply paying for a yacht abroad is not even half of what it takes to have it in their home country. In fact, it is the delivery of the yacht what should concern any future owner the most, since the number of rules and regulations that one has to face both before and after the transportation process can be very cumbersome. All of that, without considering the selection of the shipping process itself, which is just as important.
Due to all of these is that worldwide yacht delivery services have emerged in the form of international freight companies that take care of delivering boats and any other goods or vehicles to customers around the world. However, when it comes to having a yacht delivered, the best option is by far to choose shipping companies that specialize in the delivery of vessels only. This is because these companies have personnel that is extremely knowledgeable about the particulars of international boat shipping, including the diverse shipping methods available and all the necessary paperwork necessary to get everything ready.
What is more, companies like International Boat Transport also offer several benefits that other more “general” companies do not. For one, we offer advise and supervision services for both the shipping method selection and also for the handling of the yacht in question and all of its related paperwork. Also, some of these companies are based abroad, so someone planning on buying a yacht should do well in researching his or her market in order to find a local shipping agency that provides these services. This way, future yacht owners will not only have the peace of mind that everything related to the shipping and handling of their yachts is being properly taken care of, but they will also have the benefit of having someone locally to be in constant contact with regarding any aspect of their yachts’ international shipping process.
