Re: Transport cost 30 foot sailboat

Call NJ Boat Hauler, All Aboard Marine Transport, Home Page. They are excellent (moved my Catalina 25 for me). They came highly recommended from 2 different marinas, and they were among the lowest cost people I found. They moved my C25 from Toms River to Ocean City for $500. Some places wanted as much as $1200-1500. I have photos of the boat's location at the marina when the truck came; I'm still not sure how he got in there, and got the boat out, without touching anything else.

Anyway...they'll give you an estimate over the phone (take the info, do the research, call you back in a few days) and they should honor that estimate (they did in my case).

I have no affiliation with them, I was just very pleased with them. They are based in Toms River, so they are in almost the ideal location for you.

Hope this helps!

I transported a 28 foot boat with trailer from Boston down to deerfieldbeach Florida . The company gave me a fair price of $1800 which I thought was a steal . Check them out here they are out of Florida http://alldayautotransport.com/faq-i...nsport-a-boat/

Re: Transport cost 30 foot sailboat

Where are you that it's so difficult to find a production model 30' for sale? Your boatyard should tell you what it costs to haul and de-rig and get on a trailer and vice-verse. Any number of companies will give you quotes to truck the boat. But buying a boat that is far away requires going there at least once if not twice..you are simply adding a lot of costs and hassles. In many cases sailing it back on your own via paid crew is economical and wise. In some cases trucking is better. It depends on many factors. If it is an old boat and you truck here, use that opportunity to rewire and re-rig perhaps...
