My guess is you're looking at a couple of grand AND you can't simply put it on jackstands in your yard directly from the truck unless the truck is equipped with a lifting crane which would be more $$'s.
Suggestion...since it seems like you wanna do work in your yard and since it is a 25' boat...consider buying a trailer to haul it up on yourself and you can then also:
1. Use the trailer as jack stands
2. Drop the boat in and haul it for the winter yourself saving money.
3. Take it neat places like the chesapeake for vacation...I mean, you can get great pizza in Jersey but sailing????? (GRIN)
