Shipping boats from USA to Australia in standard ocean containers

Over the years of shipping boats of all types and sizes we have developed a unique boat loading procedure that is very safe, effective and, most importantly, damage proof. It allows us to efficiently pack in standard ocean containers boats up to 28 foot long, 8’6” wide, whether on trailer or not. Your boat will rest on a custom built cradle, properly secured and strapped inside the container. Prior to loading the boat we would drain all fluids, remove batteries, outboards, tops, etc and safely pack them inside the container along with boats. We can even arrange pressure washing and cleaning, to avoid quarantine and penalties in Australia.

Transporting yachts to Australia from USA on flat rack containers

Shipping boats on flat racks (flatracks) is another availalbe transportation option when importing boats from USA to Australia. Essentially, flat racks are open top, open side container units allowing to accommodate oversized (out-of-gauge) cargoes, such as boats, yachts, etc. Flat racks come in two sizes – 20 and 40 feet; some of them are fixed, some have collapsible ends.

Forklift pockets are provided on some 20' flat rack containers, while gooseneck tunnels can be found at both ends of a 40' flatrack. Flat rack containers can also be supplied with lashing winches with lashing belts of 2 metric tons and, depending on the type of cargo, stanchions may also be provided.

Shipping boats via roll on-roll off (RO-RO) service from USA to Australia

Roll on-roll off boat shipping is one of the most common methods available for transporting boats from USA to Australia. As the name implies, boats are “rolled on” and “off” the vessels on their own trailers, or mafi trailers (mafis are used if a boat doesn’t have own trailer). They are stowed under the vessels decks along with other “rolling” or self-propelled cargoes, such as trailers, motorhomes, vehicles etc.

Roll on – roll off service (RO-RO) is available to the following ports in Australia:

Melbourne VIC, Port Kembla NSW, Adelaide SA, Darwin NT, Brisbane QLD, Fremantle WA
