So you have decided to buy yourself a boat – this can be a great was to spend your time and it is a dream many people have but now you should consider the other items you will need to purchase, such as a marine trailers. Choosing one can be a tricky choice. There are many problems you may face whilst trying to find one, but in this article, I hope to shed some light on the types of trailer you can purchase.
The first question you may ask is what the importance of the trailer is. The answer to this is simple – getting in and out of the water can be made infinitely easier with a better trailer. If you buy a cheap and basic trailer, the chances are its ease of use will be impaired, and it may not be as ergonomically suitable. If you invest in a nicer one, it will be kinder to your boat and will be made to make trailer to water transitions as pain free as possible.
You may be struggling to find a supplier – they aren’t something you are likely to come across on a daily basis so knowing where to start is a lot harder. Personally, I would recommend Indespension. Indespensions’ range of marine trailers spans all types of boat, so you are bound to find what you need.
If you are the owner of a small craft or a sailing dinghy, then you should purchase a dinghy transporter. They are usually made to accommodate crafts up to 200 kg and 14 foot long.
If your craft is a little bigger, you should be looking at a more sturdy option, such as those from the coaster range. They can transport crafts up to between 500kg and 600kg so are perfect if you have a small to medium craft.
Then there are the larger crafts. If your boat is any bigger than 600kg, you will need a trailer that can sustain a lot of wear and tear. Models such as Roller Coaster, Big Dipper and Super Roller coaster will allow you to transport a boat of as much as 8m long and 2750kg.
