Found a Bigger Boat at a Good Price ... Can't Move It

So i found this Santana 25 not the 525 but the old 25. I was reading the old 25 is a bit more rough weather worthy. Price tag was 800 with cradle. Problem is i have no idea how to move it !! Also i do not know how to find someone that would move it for me. To store it outdoors where i store my 16footer will cost me the same thing. I am having a dilema because i do not want to buy a bigger car ... or a trailer and i am not sure how to get this boat to the marina.

Boats much larger get shipped all the time. Ask the google, anything can be done for a fee.

Kind of hard to give insight when your profile is blank. What country? Region?

Thats a good point, I sail on lake Ontario. Actually not even that adventuros yet, i sail in Hamilton Harbour. Nice and enclosed. Was looking at joining RHYC down here. Im contemplating the club fees still. Altho i dont think there is another option if i want a larger fixed keel boat.

Re: Found a Bigger Boat at a Good Price ... Can't Move It

Our local gas station owner has a trucking business and moves boats up to 8 tons for us quite often. Your little 25 footer and cradle could be moved with a boom truck and flatbed trailer very easily.
Good luck and keep searching for that mover.
kind regards,

I used Uship dot com it creates a bidding war and you get to review all the shippers feedback etc and u get to pick who moves it based on their exp and price and reviews etc. we moved a 31 from Md to Fl. Just used it ti get quotes for a stepdaughter moving and the moving companies wanted 900 where as we had quotes as low as 240.

Re: Found a Bigger Boat at a Good Price ... Can't Move It

The boat is located in Jarvis, ON my storage is located in Milton,ON ... this is only unti april. Then i need to move it down to a propper place.
I have looked into renting equipment (flatbed / truck) but the specifics of moving this without a crane are a bit difficult, more so then i would like to endup with a boat on the ground.
