Best service to get a mid-sized boat to New Zealand?

I want to get a mid-sized boat (30 feet) to New Zealand. What would be the best outfit to do that?

I looked at Sevenstar, but they seem to have a more European focus. Or does it matter?

Im not sure what you paid for your whaler, but Id bet it would be cheaper to buy another one in New Zealand.

But there is dockwise

And the cheapest option would be fitting the boat into a container, or a container flat rack.
Possibly even making a low profile cradle to put on a mafi trailer to load on a ro-ro ship.

Pretty much a buyers market in New Zealand just now, you could probably pick yourself up a decent 30 footer here for the cost of transporting one halfway round the world.
