Yacht path is another "mast up" float on, float off transport. Both are good. Shipped a J-160 from Auckland to Ensendada in 2006 with Dockwise 'Super Servant' after sailing her to NZed in 2005. Owner wanted to try to sell her in Auckland. Cost him 35K with a 3 month advance notice and deposit. Otherwise 46K. Would have sailed her home but owner didn't want to wait for the proper time.

I am looking to buy a boat that I can live in longterm. I am also looking for a boat that I can take out in the ocean singlehandedly. Being completely new to sailing and not even having done the courses, at first I'll keep it moored in NSW, Australia, then take it up and down the coast and only after a year or so and much learning take out out to New Zealand. I have a dog that lives with me. My budget is about $200,000 to $300,000. I guess I would also have to pay for the boat to be shipped to Australia. Any idea how much that would cost? Any idea on what would be the best boat to buy? I am female and not very strong in the arms.
