Palmetto Yacht Management is the leading Boat transportation company with over 15 years of experience.

We have the knowledge and experience to handle all of your vessel transportation needs. We go above and beyond each transport to ensure your vessel is loaded and transported safely.

Local to the East Coast

We are local to the entire east coast! We provide the most logistically efficient depot system in boat transportation. Our system allows your boat to move seamlessly up and down the east coast. In order to maintain all governmental regulations, ensure our drivers are operating in their local territory, and mitigate the extreme risk, we have locations strategically along the eastern seaboard. Our locations along the coast allow us to be local to almost anyone along the eastern seaboard which dramatically improves our response time when you're ready to move!

Each of our drivers are selected from the best of the best. Many of which have a captain background and also have a passion for boating. Our drivers are all company employees and have been through a rigorous interview and training process. Our team knows the difference is in the details. This allows us to not only meet the highest standards, but set the bar for the industry.


We are the first in the boat transportation industry to provide our clients with automated SMS updates on their boats shipping status! Should you ever need to know exactly where your boat is during transit, we have full visibility of each truck and trailer during the journey. Our photo database is available for up to 5 years
