Boat relocation perth to jervis bay

Can anyone help me? I am looking at a 27ft yacht in Perth and I want it in jervis bay...atm it isn't set up to cross the bight ( lack of safety and nav gear)
I'd like to direct ship it overland. Does anyone know a ballpark price and or someone who could do it? I have had a quote come back at $13000 but that's more than I can afford in my current situation.

I'm open to suggestions too

Cheers

Ben

Re: Boat relocation perth to jervis bay

Can't really help but $13K does sound a bit steep, I would have expected 8 to 10K; have you tried other transport companies?

Aren't there suitable boats closer to home?

Welcome aboard BTW!

Yeh I have the feeling someone is taking the piss! I've tried a swag of transport companies boat specialists and others with no luck so far.
I've been looking for over 3 years now and this is by far the absolute best boat I have found. The east coast as far as I've found is full of heaps of crap requiring major refit or else they are brand new and costing an arm and leg. My budget is quite small which puts me just bigger than a trailer sailer basically so when this boat fell in my lap I couldn't believe it.

And it has good Design and build pedigree too which I think is quite important.

Cheers

Ben

Hi Ben!
It is a long way and the fuel alone would be fairly heavy? We use a company called leisure transport who have found to be good and the cheapest around.

Okay so the update is...

I have had a quote from west coast boat transport for $4500 which is great! I went for a sail on the yacht today and it seems very well balanced (lines up with all the info I have found)
I've got a swing mooring organized in jervis bay and just waiting on a final survey before sealing the deal.

Does anyone here have any experience with these boats? It's a swarbrick M27.. Very similar to an S80.
I reckon it's a fantastic boat for me to start practicing "cruising" it's not too big but is big enough to go places

That sounds almost too good to be true! I hope it all works out OK.
Could you please PM me with their contact details as I am also interested in transporting a yacht to the east coast but the dollars had put me off .

I haven't sailed a M27 myself but I have known others who were very pleased with them. Saw one in Darwin that had sailed up from Perth a decade or so back.

Re: Boat relocation perth to jervis bay

A quick, very quick, net search gave me http://www.shiply.com/boat-movers
It will at least give you an average. Plan 'B' is a delivery skipper, he'll have all the safety gear and electronics, but will need a GOOD surveyors report. And all fares, but try adding , UK when you do a search for them.
multihullworld.co.uk use a Portsmouth chap for most of their deliveries.

Your link didn't give me any Australian boat movers, it seemed to be UK / Europe based.
And a UK based delivery skipper does seem a bit distant for a West to East delivery in Australia - but not impossible of course.

If you know when you want the boat moved or you are just hunting for quotes, i used loadshift.com.au and had a handful of quotes within a couple of days. Very good way to get results because it's not the company doing the quote, it's the actual truckies trying to fill a backload.

Perth, Scotland. It's close, skipper, but not that close.
