You might find a hauler with a split hydraulic trailer who can deposit the boat in your yard on jackstands without need of a crane.

The outfit I used charged $95 hour for the trucking -- about a 125 mile haul plus unloading, plust another 125 miles running empty back to point of origin, took 6 hours, or $570. Additional charges for haulout, bottom wash, mast unstepping, mast storage, etc... brought the total to about $1215.

For your 25 footer, hauling it yourself could be an option if you can find an appropriate trailer, and have a suitable tow vehicle.
