Shipping Recommendations Needed

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a yacht transport service or personal experience with a transporter in Washington state?

Re: Shipping recommendations needed

You might want to get in touch with Intentional Drifter, Janet. As I recall, they relocated their catamaran from the Caribbean to the PNW, but I believe they only transported as far as Ensenada, then sailed up the west coast from there. As I recall, they spent a few enjoyable weeks in Ensenada waiting for their ship to come in (literally).

I may be "misremembering" that, but he'd be a good person to discuss it with just the same.

Re: Shipping recommendations needed

I shipped my 46' from Galveston to San Francisco and had a great guy. He does a lot of cross country work from the Carolinas to Anacortes.
Jim Wise at Wiseway trucking. All he does is boats. He has been doing it for years. I can provide contact info for you if needed.

Associated Boat Transport. Hauled quite a few when I worked for a boat builder. First class. May not be the cheapest. Do you need a hydraulic trailer?
