Could spotting a deadheaded hauler be one of those? If so, do we have to wait until the last minute to connect with these?
Last summer we cruised a similar distance on the left coast. It was a grand adventure with countless AH -HAAH moments. With all of the intricacies of your contemplated relocation , I see the potential for a similar experience. I understand life's circumstances often do not align to exploit this opportunity.
That said, I would recommend contacting your selling broker
directly for transporter recommends as your Benny is so fresh and I believe they transport the west coast
deliveries cross country for boat shows and inventory. Beneteau
may even be able to exploit their deadhead situations.
If you use either party, broker
or Beneteau as project
manager, you will have someone else with a vested interest in getting it done right.
You already have an investment in this vessel that dwarfs most of the responders to this thread. You don't need six months of trucker, yard and insurance
If you do find the time for an excellent adventure, keep us informed!!!
