Coast 2 Coast, Port 2 Port, whatever your requirements, we can sort!!!!!

About Us

Although a relatively new company, having been set up in 2004, we have very quickly established ourselves as a major player in the Marine Transport industry and are highly respected by all of our clients both corporate and private.

We hold all relevant permits to travel through the countries we visit, and for those that we do not visit on a regular basis we can speedily acquire them. We NEVER undertake movements without relevant permits to travel.

Our fleet currently stands at 4 Artics, 3 Escort Vehicles, 2 4x4 trailers and 7 specialist boat trailers with the capacity to transport yachts up to 75' and motor boats up to 65' - with maximum weight capacity of 30t.

All of our drivers are highly trained in the loading of vessels and all of our customers can rest assured that their boats are in extremely safe hands both at loading / unloading time as well as the all important period of transportation.

Transport of boats abroad is not as easy as it is in the UK as there are far more variables due to the fact that we are not allowed to travel on the majority of motorways abroad, instead having to negotiate our way through many small villages and towns. Our drivers have extensive knowledge of bridge heights on routes abroad, so you can rest assured that your flybridge will not have been converted into a sports model on its arrival!

All of our drivers carry Mobile phones and you will always be given the name and number of the driver transporting your boat so that you can speak to him at any time to check on his progress. They always love to talk!!

At Coast 2 Coast we take an inordinate amount of pride in what we do, with reliability, professionalism and punctuality being the foundations of our business.

Technical information regarding transport

In the UK any load over 2.5m wide is classed as an "abnormal load" and as such, unlike general haulage, we have to inform all the police counties through which we travel that we are coming and await their permission.

In Europe any load over 3m requires an accompanying escort vehicle, to travel in front of the load on single carriageways and behind the load on dual carriageways & motorways, to advise and warn traffic of its presence on the road.

These escort vehicles are also staffed by Coast 2 Coast employees who are highly trained in their own specialist roles.

Your vessel is never left alone - our drivers have fully equipped cabs with fridges, microwaves, TVs, bunks etc so their truck is their home for the trip!

When travelling abroad with "convoi exceptionnel" loads (any load over 2.5m wide) you must have purchased "permits to travel" which give you dedicated routes to follow. We have a very extensive collection of permits for France, Spain and Portugal which allow us to deliver to virtually any marina that you would require.

Our 2 rear steer Nooteboom trailers are always used for the larger boats as the benefit of the rear steering system allows them to enter marinas that other fixed trailers stretched to 28m would not be able to access!
