Enter all but one of the distance, rate per mile, length of the boat, weight of the boat, and speed of the transport vehicle into the calculator to determine the cost of boat transport; this calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Boat Transport Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of boat transport:

C = (D * R * L) / (M * V)


  • C is the cost of boat transport
  • D is the distance to be transported
  • R is the rate per mile
  • L is the length of the boat
  • M is the weight of the boat
  • V is the speed of the transport vehicle

To calculate the cost of boat transport, multiply the distance to be transported by the rate per mile, then multiply the result by the length of the boat. Divide the product by the weight of the boat multiplied by the speed of the transport vehicle.

What is a Boat Transport?

Boat transport refers to the process of moving a boat from one location to another, typically over long distances. This can be done by sea, road, or sometimes even by air. The method of transport depends on the size, weight, and type of the boat, as well as the distance and route to be covered. For instance, smaller boats can be transported on trailers by road, while larger boats may require specialized equipment or a ship to transport them by sea. Boat transport services are provided by professional companies who have the necessary equipment, expertise, and permits to safely and legally transport boats. These companies handle all aspects of the transport, including preparation, loading, securing, transportation, and unloading of the boat.

How to Calculate Boat Transport?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cost Recovery Ratio for Boat Transport:

  1. First, determine the fare revenue ($).
  2. Next, determine the operating costs ($).
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CRR = FR / OC.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cost Recovery Ratio.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Fare revenue ($) = 94

Operating costs ($) = 32
