Re: Shipping Boats by Freighter

I was at Sell My Boat, Yacht Auctions | National Liquidators with my son-in-law who was then buying a boat. They were loading another boat bound for Australia onto a flat container that had ends but neither sides nor top. The boat length would fit within the confines the single box, but the beam would not. The motorboat was cradled off center on one flat container overhanging it on one side. The plan was to have another empty flat container loaded onto the ship on the overhanging side. I as told the freight would be for two boxes.

Re: Shipping Boats by Freighter

My 45.2 Jeanneau was shipped new from France to Montreal as deck cargo, shrink-wrapped on its cradle, sitting on a hatch cover of the 750' cargo (not container) ship. The mast was in a separate tube. No idea what it cost though, was part of the purchase.

Re: Shipping Boats by Freighter

We were looking at shipping our 34'x14' boat from the east coast to Europe.

Once the euro fell, for the round trip shipping costs, we were able to buy a similar boat in Europe. ($11-15k each way for shipping).

There are lots of services mostly it's cost that limits the numbers.
