Yacht Transport Spain / France to UK

Dear all
Yet another yachting dilemma
I have just purchased a new sail boat near Barcelona! I have not got the time to sail and would prefer to get the boat back by land so I have been asking the question of many what would be the best process. I have trucked a boat from the south of France before and all was quite easy but this is slightly different due to the size.
I believe that we are now entering cat 3 territory due to size.
The yacht is
47 feet long and 4.45 m wide which I think it falls in to cat 3
I have looked at Spanish truck going across land to Portsmouth and also ferry from santander. Has anyone got any good tips or maybe good recommendations? Thanks nick

Why not get it sailed back? If the boat is seaworthy and ready to go, the costs shoud be comparable

Thanks for the reply. Looking to minimise engine hours etc and also I will be unstepping the mast so might as well keep it down for re rigging in the uk etc...
