Numerous yachts are transported from Mediterranean to the Caribbean using a yacht carrier. Every autumn boats and yachts are loaded in Palma on board of several yacht carriers and Nautiel Service participate in the protection works.
Prepare your boat for transport
All Yacht Transport companies offer some great tips to prepare your yacht for transportation.
Securing everything on board, emptying fuel and water tanks to get the lighter yacht possible on board, powering down all electronic equipment, unplubging batteries, are some of them.
They also advise to protect the outside of your yacht by shrink wrapping it. This will protect it from wind, dust, salt, etc.
If it is too big to be completely shrink wrapped, then you should protect vulnerable parts such as non-skid surfaces, teak, stainless steel and chrome fittings.
