Shipping a Boat from Hawaii to Portland, OR

I have a friend who is thinking about purchasing a sailboat that is in Hawaii. He would like to ship it to Portland OR or perhaps Seattle. Does anyone have any recommendations on shipping a 40 foot full keeled sailboat and a ballpark figure for what he can expect to pay?

Thanks!
George

Why not sail it to Portland? I belive the estiomate I had 4 years ago to ship from Ca to Hi was 25K.

I asked a broker when I was looking at some boats in Hawaii - 10-15k for a 30 footer by ship to San Diego.

I think the delivery rate for a skipper is $2 per nautical mile plus expenses and flight after.

There are "cruiser" shippers, such as

Yacht Path International | Yacht Transportation Worldwide | Boat Delivery | Yacht Carrier

Yacht Transport, Boat Transport

I'm trying to compile a list so if you know any more...

Contact YachtPath directly and they would be able to give you a quote. But they go to Vancouver/Victoria so you would have to sail it down from there.

You can get her sailed for you a hell of a lot cheaper than shipping - assuming she's ready for the big blue that is. 15 - 22 days or so and a great adventure.

Yes you can, but it will also wear down your equipment

I've heard that the shipping cost is similar to the cost of wear and tear maintenance. On the other hand, it can be a wonderful sailing experience, and isn't that why we have our boats?

Sometimes the Pacific Cup website has shipping information, but I just looked and didn't see anything obvious.
