It took a hell of a beating sailing here from the other coast. Going back is much worse...

Re: Shipping a 42" Sailboat

Here's some notes from friends for recent quotes for shipping a 46ft mono from the east coast (or Gulf) to Pacific Northwest.
Quote:
trucking from the eastern seaboard to Seattle. The highest one was $50K so they were not serious about our business. The best one was $18k out of Galveston.



So we took the Galveston quoted and shopped it with shipping companies and got a quote by water from Port Everglades to Victoria of $23k. Considering the yard costs and time we think that is worth the extra $5k,

Usually the mast goes on stancions built on the trailer side. Most large sailboats are too tall to make it under overpasses with anything on top including pulpits, but it depends on your draft of course. Figure 13 ft max height and that includes the trailer!
Whoops, for got to say $10k was for a 30 footer!

Re: Shipping a 42" Sailboat

I am paying $22,210 to move a brand new boat from Marion South Carolina, to Richmond CA (San Francisco Bay area). The Mfg Beneteau probably negotiates good rates. That is for a 45' hull length 48' LOA, 25,000 lb boat. It is shipped without the keel installed (new so never installed), probably because of the earlier comment about keeping windage down.

They have not built my boat yet, but I attempted to attach a picture of a sister boat being delivered to the dealer for stock.

Costs a lot more to ship if the height goes over the standard limits, which it no doubt woukd on your boat if it had the keel installed.

Sweet looking boat, what is it?

Thanks for the updated pricing. Sure seems steep. Used to live in Marina Bay and worked in Pt. Richmond!
I draw 7' with 42 LOA so I'm guessing the price wouldn't be much less. Hard to choke on those numbers....no wonder boats cost more in the Bay Area..

Re: Shipping a 42" Sailboat

Depending on the start and finish points, you may
want to look into deck cargo as an option.

Re: Shipping a 42" Sailboat

Road construction can add to a lot of delays of travel and extensive long distance alternative routings and at times simply no alternative routings for oversized rigs, especially wide loads. Those Ya can't get there from here instances until road construction is completed. Or if you don't arrive at the designated time on the designated day or days you will have to wait until the next designated time and day, one day delay or several days delay.

Note West bound wide loads do not have an alternate routing. Call Shawn Hollenbach of Mountain West Holding Co at 406-239-1304 to set up pilot cars and flagging.
