pirate Dockwise . . . Any Info Appreciated

Hi Folks... looking for first/secondhand knowledge of dealings with 'Dockwise..' a Trans-Atlantic boat shipping/transport service.
Good.. Bad... Indifferent....
Some friends asked about them as they want to come back from the Carib to Europe and thinking maybe to ship the boat... 2012ish..
I suggested trying Moorings/Sunsail who sometimes have spaces but obviously the more choice the better..

Dockwise

boatman61,

I have friends that use Dockwise every other year to take their Catalina 380 from Newport Rhode Island, USA to St, Thomas USVI in November.
They really like their service. Their only complaint is its expensive.

A friend of mine shipped his boat from Newport, RI to St. Thomas about five years ago. Everything went smoothly. He felt the cost was worth not having to endure the wear and tear on the boat and himself.

Every year a Dockwise vessel calls at Marin, Martinigue to take boats from the ARC back to Europe.

I've vworked with Dockwise, they are very professional, I have no idea of costs.
But, sometimes, things do go wrong.

I have found Dockwise expensive as well. I recently have ended up with Seven Star who do a great job shipping Trans-Atlantic out of West Palm. Give both a call / email. Good luck.

dockwise

I have used both; road along with SS3 in 2003 from Vancouver to Pt Everglades. It has gotten more expensive (maybe the food is better) since, so last move in 2005 I used Yachtpath Pt Everglades to Victoria. Cost less than Dockwise but I like the Dockwise system of support better and I enjoyed the ride in spite of the surly Baltic officers...
