Anyone ship a yacht on a freighter?
I believe it also depends to a certain extent on the size of the boat. When visiting Montreal recently I met someone who had recently purchased an Etchells 22 (30 ft. LOA I believe) in England and had it shipped home. He mentioned he was lucky in that it just managed to fit in a shipping container (in its cradle) and the process was quite easy. If the boat is larger, then Jeff_H’s advice sounds good.
