Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

If you haven't purchased yet, why don't you just buy your boat in Charleston, I can put you on a good broker and I know of a 46 ft. Carver and a 43 ft. Carver for sale at a good price right here.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

I have a co-worker that just did this the opposite way. Bought a 44 ft J boat in Maryland and had it shipped to Seattle; CSR Marine. He told me the whole cost for prep and transport was 25k. He was very happy with the results.

Does that figure include; pulling & packing the mast for transport, ditto on the keel & rudder, plus the reverse on the other end?


Either way, yeah, $25K buys a lot of toys & upgrades.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

Doubt they'd pull the keel.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

I shipped my 47' Kaufman with 14' beam and 7ft draft (I believe 13' height overall) from Svendsens in Alameda, CA to New Orleans, LA. I used J Daniels transport (http://www.jdanielmarine.com), they were awesome, and best price. It was 8500 to ship, and about 1500 for Svendsens to prep it I believe. I think it was less than 11k for everything. They even send you pictures along the way which is super cool! And the owners/drivers are fantastic. Give them a shout.

Here are a couple pictures they sent me of Redemption along the way. Click image for larger version

There is a marina (KKMI) in SF that gets a lot of race boats. It looks like the keels are removable.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

Many keels are removable. But they generally don't remove them for transporting the boat.

It really depends on the boat, her draft, & what she's used for.

If a boat's designed for it, there can be a LOT of perks. Up to & including, making a 50'er able to pull her keel up, & motor around in 1m of water. Such as with Angelo Lavranos's "Beluga". Or she can sail with it half way down & still have a very good range of stability.
That, & it can make 70'er's "transportable". Like the IACC boats, with their double digit drafts, for example.

Yes to pulling and packing the mast and the rudder. The keel was left in - but there was at least one keel bolt replaced at CSR along with some fiberglass work. That is not included in the number my friend gave me. Also, I do not believe it included the re-stepping.

Good for you.

But, as I said, keels are generally not removed to transport a boat. Of course maxi's and other boats with extremely deep keels must be treated on their own merits. But it is pure nonsense to imply that keels are regularly removed for transport.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

Having been on the shipping and receiving end of a great many boat shipments, you should note that costs for breakdown/road prep and reassembly on the other end are often as much as shipping, possibly more. And, it is money well spent to do it right. I have seen a number of cases of severe road damage, from road grit ruining a paint job to a flybridge removed by driving under a bridge without enough clearance. Even saw one case where the boat went east to west and was occupied by squatters/hitchikers who trashed the interior, stole all the clothes and supplies, ruined the heads etc. Be sure to use a reputable shipping company and a good yard on either end, and make sure it gets the full heat shrink treatment. And remember, it's a boat; by the time you take it apart enough to ship, you will find some things that need $ to fix when you put it all back together on the other side.

Sir, on this, I strongly beg to differ. As I have much experience to the contrary. But I'll consult you via PM regarding it, in the interests of trying to keep the thread on track.

Re: Shipping a Seattle based boat to Charleston, SC

We used Raven Offshore to ship our 37' Beneteau from La Paz to Chemainus B.C. Several of the boats that were onboard with our boat had come from Florida. We couldn't have been more satisfied.

When taking into account beam and bridge clearance that sounds reasonable.
More reasonable than OTR from Seattle to Mississippi River.
Assume 48ft by 16ft and not wanting to use the Canal, suggestions?

I would look into shipping deck cargo. Only because a cousin shipped a 45 Viking in the other direction that way. Sorry I don't have particulars.
