Yacht Transportation

Yacht Transportation (Liner charter, Charter transport)

If you want to move your vessel from Australia, or Asia, or any other part of the world, to Mediterranean sea, the safest and cheapest way is to embark it on a ship. 
The size of the vessel, place from which you want to displace it and your need for punctuality are tree main factors for finding suitable solution for your vessel.

Liner charter

In the case when you need for your vessel to be on an exact place in exact time, your solution is a liner charter, which means you are putting your vessel on a liner ship, which has an exact sailing route, dated of departure and arrival, and it is used for transportation of other goods. This kind of transportation will cost you more.
Other than price, it has its benefits, such as your vessel can be transported indoors, below deck, protected from weather conditions and large amounts of water, you have an exact arrival date, if you change your mind they will not charge you penalty price(in most cases), etc.

Charter transport

Specialized ships for yacht transport

The cheaper way of transport is Charter. For this tip of transport, you need patience, and it is only for those owners to whom time is irrelevant. When we say time, in this case we mean weeks and months, depending on a distance.
Charter transport is executed by specialized ships which do not transport any other cargo. For them it is possible to enter even in some marinas, while liner ships demands large ports and its infrastructure (cranes). Vessels are lifted directly from the sea to ship with ships crane specialized for this purpose. For sailing yachts there is no need to lower mast, because there is no height limit, which is a must do if you want to use liner ship.

The vessel should be prepared, and stand by for two weeks for Charter transport. Dates are unreliable, patience and flexibility is expected from owners. This is happening because these ships are taking vessels from different ports and marinas and they do not have exact traveling route. They have an exact starting point, and all other stops are determined by your wishes to embark or disembark the vessel. If you change your mind from already contracted charter, you will pay full price, as if you get true with it.
Price for both kind of transport is lower comparing with a price you should pay if you travel the distance by yourself. Expenses of fuel, crew, provisions are far larger than a price of transportation, and it is far safer than a few months sail in an open ocean.

If you need any assistance concerning your vessel you can contact Yacht Agent Montenegro.
