Who We Are

Palmetto Yacht Management specializes in hauling boats and yachts that require specialized boat trailers. Our drivers are required to have a Class-A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). A typical week for drivers will consist of multiple regional runs where they will meet and relay with other drivers, load boats, and deliver boats. 75% of our drivers trips are less that 550 miles. With our drivers working regionally 75% of the time, they are likely to be close to home. With our regional business model, we are able to provide more weekend time at home for full-time drivers, while providing weekend work for part-time drivers. Unlike OTR trucking, when our drivers are away from home, they are provided a hotel! Sleeping in the backseat of the truck is not an option at Palmetto! With our performance pay structure, drivers don’t need to rely on excessive miles to make great pay.

Common loads that our drivers haul are double 20' boats, single 35'-60' boats, as well as the occasional crate or vehicle. Drivers are responsible for the correct loading and securing of boats to our trailers. Palmetto has been providing highly effective on-the-job training for over 10 years. With our service being a niche market within the transportation field, many of our drivers come from other fields which have given them similar yet different experiences that make their transition to yacht transportation seamless. Even drivers who are brand new to the industry are trained thoroughly on all things Yacht Transportation to give them the confidence they need to do the job safely.


We are located along the East Coast;

We are strategically located in multiple cities along the east coast. Our depot system allows us to service our clients needs at a high level while ensuring our drivers are under a local or regional schedule. We are the pioneer of the hub and spoke model in our industry. 


We are currently building a state of the art facility in Clarendon County, SC. Centrally located between Miami and NYC, directly off Interstate I-95, Clarendon County was a perfect choice for our expansion.
