Anyone ship a yacht on a freighter?

got my 24 foot 8 foot plus wide boat from Germany. I was lucky as I have a trailer. The folks in Germany drove her to the docks in Bremerhaven. The container crane picked her up and set her on top of the containers. They straped the trailer down and sailed into heavy weather...lol
Same stuff happend in Charleston, where I picked her up and drove her home..

She didnt fit into a container ( to wide ) but the trailer worked great.
sooooo my tires are not dot aproaved...lol

Anyhow the whole deal inclusive insurance cost me 3500 dlr.

Msybe yo check the rates if the boat is on a trailer, even a big trailer for a big boat. It might make enough difference to built a custom trailer and be cheaper in the long run.
