Boat Haulage and Launching

We ensure safe and quick moving of your boat from and to the water.
Lifting and moving a vessel off water is not a simple task. It requires precision and consideration of the vessel’s size and type, so that the suitable equipment and materials are used.

Normally a vessel will need to be hauled up several times throughout its life span for a number of reasons; transport to a designated hardstanding boatyard, for use in another area or maintenance work. Moreover, haulage allows the owner to inspect the hull and even arrange its cleaning. Similarly, the launching service ensures the vessel returns to the water properly.

Our team has the experience and knowledge required to perform haulage and launching of a vessel, as well as its transport and storage in a designated area if opted so by the owner.

We Provide Haulage – Launching Service for all Types Of Vessels

The process of hauling up and load off to the water

Our team brings about every step of the haulage and launching processes so that the vessel gets out and into the water safely in one piece.

  • We take into account all information about your boat (type, size, height, etc.) and the available spaces at the marina or dock where it is moored.
  • We determine the required equipment and materials (spacers, stands, straps etc.), depending on whether haulage is to be done directly above the water surface with the use of a crane or through skidding on a hydraulic trailer.
  • In case a trailer is used, the keel rests on its shaft and the boat is ready to be towed and mounted on a grid.

Our Team in Action

Picking up and off a vessel is an operation as demanding and delicate as boat transport. It requires experienced and trained staff, familiar with the different types of vessels.

During haulage, it is necessary to keep the boat steady on a rig, while straps and stands should be placed in accordance with the hook points set by the manufacturer.

It is a process that brings strain to a boat, but our objective is to minimise that strain and complete the task the soonest, safely. For this, we have earned the trust of hundreds of boat owners and businesses seeking boat haulage and launching services.
