Karl, the topic has been discussed before here or on similar sailing forums. I don't think you've missed anything, unless you can find a way to charter it out and charge some Yanks to bring it over to you.
There's a float on-float-off service which is certainly no cheaper, and sailing it over (including Panama Canal transit fees) isn't going to be cheap either. No mater how you do it, crew, food, preparation...those delivery expenses are part of why the boats aren't imported wholesale to you.
Although I suppose for the price of transport, you could take two annual trips to the US and sail it over here for the next five years?
