All the inland road freight companies we use carry their own insurance to fully cover your boat while in transit. All boats are insured during the shipping process until landed at the dock in Australia. We suggest taking local cover to overlap the arrival of your boat so that it is fully covered when it arrives at the port in Australia.
Quarantine clearance with Australian DAFF is the most advanced and strict in the world. All second-hand boats are subject to a mandatory quarantine inspection upon arrival. If a boat is not correctly prepared for shipping, AQIS may place an order on the vessel which can include steam cleaning, fumigation, vacuuming and even termite inspection. We recommend cleaning and shrink wrapping prior to shipping to help avoid additional quarantine washing and fumigation charges. However, regardless of what cleaning or treatment is done at point of origin, AQIS will always inspect your boat upon arrival.
