I wish I could help you with a recommendation, but I can add that how you are going to have her prepped and recommissioned is as equally important as the carrier. At 35', you may get away without escorts or the need for a separate truck for her main mast. However, properly carrying the mast aboard, as well as removing everything above the gunnels, is critical. When I trucked my boat, there were 4 parties involved. Only one was the carrier. Keeping them coordinated seemed like a full time job. Best of luck.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
