Prepping Your Vessel

If you would like for us to prep the vessel, please inquire about pricing.

  • Make certain that all loose items in your vessel such as plates, galley utensils, personal items or any other non-secured items have been secured or removed from the vessel.

  • Turn all power modules to the “OFF” position.

  • Remove any device or fixture that extends beyond the hull of the vessel such as antennas, radar, compasses or depth sounders. These devices should be secured inside the vessel for shipping.

  • Any non-secured decor such as tops, curtains, & seat cushions must be stowed and secured.

  • Remove the plug from the craft

  • If you are moving the boat during the winter months, then you may need to winterize the engine, toilets, the water systems or any other weather sensitive device on the vessel.

  • Shrink wrap is an excellent way to protect your boat during transport. However, a poor shrink wrap may tear due to the high winds generated by road travel. If this happens, the vessel could suffer damage from the shrink wrap beating, chaffing, and scratching the vessel. Palmetto Yacht Management cannot accept responsibility for damages caused by shrink wrap.

  • All personal belongings should be removed from the boat before transport. These include cash and valuables, clothing, sporting goods, or any other materials that are not part of the vessel.

  • You will need to store and secure Plastic and Plexiglas windshields below . If you have a center console with a canvas T-top make sure that there are no holes or rips in the fabric. If there are any holes in the fabric it will not make it during transport. Any attempted transport with the holes still in the canvas could damage the framing. Palmetto Yacht Management cannot accept any responsibility for canvas top damage due to natural wear and tear from the elements.
