Thanks nightowle, I will have a look at Associated Boat Transport. I'm in the PNW
, and would be bringing the boat over here from the east coast
, so this could be helpful.
I also found http://www.heavyhaulers.com
, and https://boattransportpros.com
, I will do some investigating and eventually post what I find, because I'm sure there are others who are interested in the cost involved for such a move.
I must still disagree that a delivery captain
could be cheaper: it's a 6,000nm trip that involves transiting the Panama Canal
. It would be months long. Delivery captains are what, 300-500/day? Crew probably 100/day. With a crew of five, that would easily be 6 figures. Even with a skeleton crew of 2 it would be prohibitively expensive.
I still need to investigate putting it on a cargo ship. That may well be the best option in this case, it's just not easy finding public facing services.
