I shipped my yacht from Turkey
to Newcastle using Sevenstar and was happy with the service
. The local representative (in Aus) was helpful both here and in Turkey
and they made customs
clearance a breeze.
The good thing with shipping
is that after you have paid for it, the customs
and GST seems a bargain
You could pay a delivery skipper
which will be cheaper, but you have to factor in wear and tear.
One thing I did learn from my shipping experience is that the quoted prices can and do change up until the day you commit. I booked my shipping a couple of months before the original departure date, whilst an Aussie couple who was living on their yacht played a waiting game
and paid a lot less. It all depends on if the ship is full and whether you are willing to risk missing the boat
and also if you speak to small shipping brokers, they might be just getting their prices from the same shipping companies.
