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...
