This method of shipping is ideal for larger boats or boats that cannot be disassembled. Containerized shipping, on the other hand, is an excellent option for those who want extra protection for their boat during transit. We can offer different container sizes to accommodate various types of boats and equipment. This method of shipping is ideal for smaller boats or boats that can be disassembled. Both RORO shipping and containerized shipping have their advantages, and our team will work with you to determine the best shipping solution for your needs and budget. We also offer additional services, such as crating and insurance, to ensure that your boat is protected during transport.
