Shipping quotes. Across America or Across the USA

Hello,

I'm considering purchase of a 40' aluminum boat in Panama. Due to working life I am considering transport of the boat by truck.

The intended destination is Puget Sound, Washington.

I don't think there is an option to ship it up the Pan-american highway from Panama (But if this is possible, let me know)

Then I'm considering sailing to Mexico, Florida, or California and having it trucked the rest of the way. Then I'd like to compare costs between shipping ports. How can I get a list of providers or quotes for each port so I can do a comparison to consider this option?

You could look into shipping on freighter from Panama to British Columbia -- this is a pretty regular route. Recommend Raven Yacht shipping https://www.ravenmarine.ca/yacht-shipping

Thank you so kindly. I will enquire regarding a quote. I should probably also check and see how the price changes if the source port is a few thousand miles North in Mexico or California. I'm expecting it's something I can't afford but thought I'd make an enquiry regardless...

Re: Shipping quotes. Across America or Across the USA

I wouldn't too be surprised if I couldn't afford it. But my father shipped our Morgan 40 from Florida to Washington State at the end of the 90s. He wasn't a millionaire...

Re: Shipping quotes. Across America or Across the USA

I think this will be much more expensive. Then I'm looking for a truck to haul the boat from either Mexico or California.

My father did this with his Morgan in the 90s.

Re: Shipping quotes. Across America or Across the USA

Why not get a professional delivery crew to sail it up?

I paid $900.00 to ship a 29 footer from Santa Ana, Ca. to Connecticut in 1978. That was real money back then, but worth every penny.

It's another avenue to explore. Another is to consider a slow process of sailing it up in intervals.

That's a nice looking sailboat you have there. Thanks for giving me another possibility.

I wonder what my old man paid to ship his boat from Florida in the late 90s. Maybe if I really dig through the family paper trail I might find out. But it would be of historical value. I am expecting the costs have changed in ~23 years.
