Hurricane Marine Transport, Inc. (HMT) has over 50 years of experience in the transportation industry, with highly professional drivers and a knowledgeable office support staff. Our drivers have extensive experience hauling specialized or oversized loads, and we realize that nothing is more special to you than your boat.

Operating from our home base along the south shore of Lake Erie, from Toledo to Port Clinton and Sandusky to Cleveland and on to Conneaut, our customers have made us the premier marine transportation provider for the entire Great Lakes region. Our area of service has grown over the years to include all 48 US continental states.  Recently, with the uncertainty of the pandemic and the unrest in Canada, we have chosen to no longer serve that market.

We understand the great stress that accompanies the decision to move your boat from Point A to Point B. It can also be very confusing, with all the options and details that need to be considered. We also know there are “fly-by-night” transporters out there, who skirt the Federal and State laws, DOT regulations, fuel and road tax obligations and who don’t use the proper equipment for the size of the boat they attempt to transport. The “transporters” compete with us for your business. If you take nothing else away from visiting our website, please know this: We not only transport boats for a living, but we also are boat owners and "live to boat" ourselves. Therefore, we will treat your boat as if it were our own, thus making the experience easier on you.

We are proud to be an approved carrier for some of the world’s best boat manufacturers and dealerships, including Boston Whaler, Century, Prestige Yachts, Sea Ray, Tiara Yachts and Colony Marine Sales, MarineMax, SkipperBuds, and Walstrom Marine.
