Re: Dockwise and others...

I agree with Valhalla360 about checking for space on cargo ships.

With Dockwise and other marine carriers, you pay to have you boat shipped complete, without removing the mast.

Using standard cargo ships, with your mast removed will cost much less.

I'm grateful for any hints...
Have a read of this thread and the later posts which apply. the word you are looking for to search the UK Customs website is "chattels".

UK VAT on a yacht purchased in Australia...

I can't advise on other EU member states, it would be nice if they were all the same and they may be, but......... Still England is very pleasant in the summer.

I hear what you say about your yacht and your S2 is similar to our Moody 31, but I would still sell it and buy another in Europe. The place is full of very nice 30+ fin keeled fast modern yachts at good prices. What you won't find in Europe is an abundance of US long keeled yachts. I can only think of one Westsail 32 in the Solent, the other 50,000 yachts are fin and spade.

Re: Dockwise and others...

Thanks for all the advice that already came in,
I will definitely look into Cargo boats as well if unstepping the mast is all it takes it doesn't seem like too much of a hazzle...
Other than that, the reason not to sell for me is that I just converted this boat to my ideas including adding an electric engine, composting toilet, insulation, redo lots of the interior and fixing pretty much every piece on it... so I really want to enjoy her a bit before I sell her - unfortunately though I also can't stay in the US for too much longer because of Visa issues... So that is why...

I would suggest you contact a reliable shipping agent that has experience of shipping yachts as deck cargo. It may need custom cradles , so if you have time constraints you might want to get expert advice as quickly as possible,

Agents like Peters and May etc.

Re: Dockwise and others...

Your boat will fit on a flat rack and can be shipped relatively cheaply on a container ship.
