Interstate Boat Transport Services

Whether it’s for leisure cruising, fishing or sporting adventures, your boat was built for your sailing pleasure – not the long, interstate haul.

While moving road vehicles is what we’re known for, here at National Car Movers, our industry experience stretches to moving watercraft in all its forms – from yachts to jet skis and everything in between.

Transporting a boat interstate is more complex than moving cars or other road vehicles. Boats must be secured and carried appropriately, with consideration to any possible oversize issues. Specific transport routes, documentation and permit requirements vary by state.

Our extensive network of specialist boat moving services ensures your boat is handled with precision and care. You’ll get transit updates on your boat’s relocation so you can have peace of mind.

How much does it cost to transport a boat interstate? We simplify the process and provide you with price options to suit your needs.
