A recent Search Analysis displayed some interesting results. The search words "Boat Transport" were entered on GOOGLE and for page 1 of the
search, a complete analysis  revealed that over 55% of the websites listed were Boat Transportation Brokers that are Operating Illegally. This was
a complete listing of all the websites on Page 1; both "Paid" and "Non-Paid". This was an interesting list comprised of Previous Legal Boat
Transportation Carriers with Inactive or Revoked US DOT Operating Authority, Previous Legal Boat Transport Brokers with Inactive or Revoked
US Dot Operating Authority, Companies with no previous US DOT Operating Authority, Companies or Individuals Operating as Load Matching
Services, and/or Boat and Yacht Transportation Directories for Boat Transportation and Shipping Services. A common thread was involved in
almost all websites;
No Verification of the Operating Authority or Insurance of Transporters Utilized in their Boat Transport Services.

This is a very good example of "LET THE BUYER BEWARE"

Do you really think that a "Company" that Brokers Shipments Illegally, will only utilize Transporters that are Legal and Insured?

Information provided by the National Boat & Yacht Transport Association and contained on this Website will assist the Boat Shipper on how
to evaluate Boat Transportation Companies in order to
Minimize Risk by finding and utilizing Brokers and Carriers that are Legal and Insured.
