Boat: Freedom F-250c - 25 ft. trailerable - Not Named Yet
Greetings from Marietta, GA
I am hoping to get some valuable info. from this forum. Specifically, right now I am looking for advice / recommendations for shipping and shippers for getting a 25 ft. cruising sailboat, on a trailer from Denver to Birmingham, AL (roughly).
Probably depends on the boat. What is the weight of the boat? What is the beam? What is the draft? Is it a fixed keel, swing keel, centerboard?
The right boat and the right trailer you could move it yourself with a good sized pickup. If you are not up for the drive it could still make a lot of difference in the charge. Regular, over the road freight haulers are at least $1.50/mile but hauling a boat is usually more.
Unless this is a really special boat I think you might end up cheaper buying one at Lake Lanier or Lake Allatoona. A lot of boats there and used to see some good deals when I lived in Cumming.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
Sorry I can't help with recommendations but it seems to me any trucking/moving company could help. That really is not a large load that requires permits or special considerations especially since its already on a trailer. How about an auto shipper?
