Moving a boat, what are my choices?

I am looking at some Lagoons in Europe and would need to move the boat. The option to put it on a ship is very expensive. WHat are the other options and costs? If I have a crew sail it across what are the typical costs? It would be going to the Caribbean.

I am looking at the 410, would prefer to find one in the Caribbean if any owners have one for sale.

Putting it on a ship is a safer route, but you can always hire a captain and crew. I would look for a crew in Europe, and fly them back, or post the Job under the Crews tab and see what you get!

Cheers

Re: Moving a boat, what are my choices?

If you have the time, you could hire a captain and do the trip with him or her, along with some of your friends.

If you're up for the trip, want to learn the boat, and just need to make sure you have someone there who's totally qualified it's a reasonable approach. I've worked with some great catamaran delivery captains (including transatlantic cat stuff) and there are several on this board. If you need any leads, let me know.

Whoever you pick, get references and check on them.

But seriously, it would be a great trip.

Re: Moving a boat, what are my choices?

to the OP:

If you might be interested in an FP 42, there's one for sale on CF, the vessel is located in Panama, a lot closer to the Caribbean. The name of the thread has the phrase "A cautionary tale" attached, so a google search may get you there.
The OP's handle is "Jane Joy".

There are no cheap [by my penurious standards] options for relocating the vessel.

The shipping quote was $38000! THat seems like a lot. An hiring a crew would be a lot more fun. And cheaper.

I think I would have to wait until late November, due to hurricane season. But that could work out.

I am really wanting the Lagoon, so thank you for the lead on the FP. If you trip over a lagoon 410, send it my way!

ideally by late nov you would want the vessel to be in the canary islands,ready to cross in dec.

i have a delivery from the azores to uk or gib at the end of sept so timing would be right if you need to prepare the vessel in oct and need assistance,my rates are very reasonable,and have many refs from cf members who i have assisted,as well as many others,am based out of the uk so europe is my back yard!

cheers alex

Hi, thank you for this info, and yes it would be a great trip. I have wanted to do transatlantic for a long time. Now it's time.
When I am ready I will get some names from you.

This sounds fabulous. How long is the trip? Are you making stops along the way?

In distance its a quickie... but being a new boat it'll be a sea trial of a sort... looking at stopping in La Coruna or Baiona.. depending on the wind direction... then Lisbon and Portimao or Faro before heading on to Gib. A couple of weeks if all is well with the boat.
The owner would like a taste of Galicia and Portugal on the way.. and I don't blame him.
