Shipping Our Boat from the Med to Australia

Hi
We have our Australian registered 39 ft Bavaria in the Med (the Agean) currently and we are considering shipping it home to Australia...Can anybody suggest a shipping company or give me an approximate cost to ship to Brisbane? Also what costs/taxes/GST would there be importing a secondhand yacht into Australia.
Thanks for your help

I would consider delivering it for you if you are interested and the boat meets safety considerations.
send me a PM if interested.

Why not just sail her to Aus? It is all downwind.

Ha! To ship a ship ...

OK, I see. Probably contact companies like DYT and other carriers - plenty of them in the Yachting Monthly.

There are a number of companies who do this, Dockwise being just one of them. The price is largely dependent on the demand of the service, which means deals are possible. Think around A$30,000 plus insurance.

dockwise I suspect, other wise its probably breakbulk ships. ( like Rickmiers etc).


Dockwise do have a run to brisbane. but its a two step hop med ( genoa to florida, and florida to brisbane). so you'd have to go to the USA and manage the re shipment.

Breakbulk may be a better option

I suspect Dockwise is in the 20,000+ mark too based my understanding of their charges

The very best would be to get it into a 40 foot container, remove keel etc , but I think its too beamy, then its would be relatively cheap.

Mono cradle?

When I looked at buying in the US and shipping to Oz the problem was to find a proper cradle.

For a 40' boat a cradle for shipping needs to be made to the requirements of the shipping and insurance companies - it has to hold the yacht securely as it is placed on top of all the containers and tied down.

Once you have the cradle then negotiation regarding cranes and transport costs may be straight forward. It could be nicer to lift the yacht from the water onto the cradle already on the ship and vice versa.

Inport duties etc. have been discussed with regard to bring a boat from the US. From Europe should be similar. Let us know if you can't find the threads.

Surprise me

If the cost of transport is less than the price of a new medium to high-priced automobile, I'd be surprised.

Sometimes/often it's cheaper to buy "new" and abandon the "old."
