Risks of Shipping..

Would there be any risks to the structural integrity of a boat that is shipped a significant distance by road?

shipping a vessel

A properly designed trailer will not damage a boat no matter how far it is shipped. A badly designed trailer can damage a boat as soon as it is lifted out of the water.Hope this helps.

Boat manufactures do it all the time. Hunter, Catalina, Beneteau are everywhere, and certainly not manufactured locally. Catalina is manufactured in California and Florida...they had to get those boats to the other 48 states somhow.

If you have a good mover....no problem. A bad mover.....no different than your household goods...OOPS
