A Med to Caribbean delivery for your cat would be in the region of €8K to €14K depending which end of the Med the start point is..
For transporting on board a ship try contacting Sevenstar.. they do regular Med to US yacht deliveries
Agree with Boatman. For 40.000 € I would do both ways from Med to Caribbean an back.

Re: Shipping a cat

This is the second time I've seen it thread on shipping a catamaran., I've always wondered why not just sail it yourself when you have the time ? I know they'll be wear and tear on the equipment but for $40,000 for shipping I'd rather put new equipment on my boat.

Re: Shipping a cat

None of the transport quotes I have received have been that high. Most have been under $20K. Even at a similar price my experience to date tells there is a lot to be said for minimal wear and tear.

Well a Bali 4.5 cost $27K from Palma to St Thomas on Sevenseas so for a 38ftr around $20K sounds about right as deck cargo from the W Med..
If yours is a similar type ship it.. theyre not designed for blue water.
