Transport cost 30 foot sailboat

I am currently looking around at 30 foot sailboats, ODay, Catalina, Pearson and S2, and am not finding anything in my area. But am finding a nice selection in Florida, California, Missouri, Rhode Island...You get the idea. Anyway we have a budget of $25,000 I am wondering how much of that is going to be consumed by transportation? Has anyone had a sailboat transported lately? What kind if "ballpark" costs am I looking at?

I spent a little over $3200 to move a 31 foot boat 700 miles. I also had to pay for all tolls and permits.

That is what I was guessing. How recent was that?

Not sure if this will help, but there is a website uShip - The Online Shipping Marketplace - Ship Freight, Furniture, Vehicles or Moves that you could get bids on. I have hauled a couple of 30 footers in the last year @ 3.75 per mile but with fuel prices being what it is now, would probably cost atleast 5.50 a mile. The rates did not include permits and tolls.

Many truckers move the boats on weekend, avoiding getting permits as most weight stations are closed on weekends. Some will still charge for the "permits".

Most states require permits for loads over 102"

Most states require an oversized/overwidth permit to move a boat that exceeds 102" in width. A permit is required even if the boat is only 1 inch wider. I just had to purchase permits from Texas and Louisiana to tow a 27 footer with a beam of 106". The Texas permit cost $60 and required a $10,000 bond. The Louisiana permit cost $10.

With budgets getting tighter by the hour, most states have increased inspections on towed equipment and are ticketing very heavily when a permit isn't on hand or filed incorrectly.
