Off Season Boat Haulers
Hey there, boat-folks! It’s Paolo here the Film consultant for your favorite boat haulers. When I’m not busy writing script outlines and helping assist video editing, I’m nerding out about… wait for it… boat transport. And not just your average “Ahoy, it’s summer, let’s move my yacht” deal. We’re talking the underdog, the underrated—off-season boat transport. Let’s dive in, shall we?
We generally get many more calls for boat haulers in boating season that’s around April to October but there are advantages to planning out your yacht’s journey ahead of the rush.
Understanding Off-Season in Boat Transport
So what’s this “off-season” buzz? In simple terms, when everyone else is hibernating their boats during colder months, that’s the off-season in the boat-transport world. Think of it as the introverted cousin of the big, bold summer rush.
The Cost Benefits of Off-Season Boat Transport

Preparing Your Boat for Off-Season Transport
Before you send your boat off on its adventure, make sure it’s ready for the journey. Maintenance checks, securing parts, all that jazz. And don’t forget the power of the right trailer! In winter months, an enclosed trailer is like your boat’s personal bodyguard against the cold.
Here are some of the types of boat trailers for transporting boats
Bunk trailers are equipped with long pieces of material that are covered with carpet and run along the hull of the boat. They provide solid support to the boat’s body and are generally easier to maintain than other types. Bunk trailers are often recommended for aluminum or steel boats as the surface contact isn’t likely to scratch these materials.
As the name suggests, roller trailers come with multiple sets of rollers that facilitate easier loading and unloading of the boat. They are particularly useful in areas with shallow water. However, roller trailers may not provide the same level of hull support as a bunk trailer.
These trailers are designed to let the boat “float” onto them in deep water, which is then winched into the correct position. This type of trailer is typically recommended for larger and heavier boats.
Tilt trailers can tilt down at a ramp, making it easier to slide the boat into the water. They are generally used for smaller boats.
These trailers are specifically designed for larger vessels, such as yachts, with heavier load-bearing capacities and the ability to withstand long-distance hauls.
Personal Watercraft (PWC) Trailers
Designed specifically for personal watercraft like jet skis, these trailers are smaller and lighter than most other types.
So, wrapping it up, moving your boat off-season is like finding a secret passage in a video game—it’s cheaper, quicker, offers better service, and lowers the risk of damage. It’s a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. All it takes is a little planning ahead.
