Yacht Transport from the Med to Australia


I'm looking to ship a 40ft cat from the Med back to Australia in the Oct/Nov timeframe. Are there any companies worth considering or avoiding?

Has anyone used Direct Boat Shipping?

Are their ports of departure we should avoid?
Also what are the pitfalls in shipping yachts generally?
Typically how accurate are the dates of departure and arrival?

Hi Sly

Shipping as cargo will cost you about $60K to $70K.
There will only be certain ports that you be loaded at so you won't have a lot of choice.
I think you will find shipping dates reasonably accurate.
