Those prices are not far from what I paid 6 years ago. I paid around $5,000 to have my C320 trucked (Brunell) from Fairhaven Mass to Annapolis and unloaded doing at least a few hundred dollars worth of labor myself prepping the boat after it was loaded on the trailer in Mass. My wife and I 'DAY motor-sailed' the Nauticat back from Annapolis to NGBay in 8 days.

The marina the boat is stored at has quoted me $1700 to unstep the mast and load the boat onto a truck.

The first trucking quote was $3000 to ship it to Mystic.

I'm in shock...sticker shock. Are these prices in line or am I just spoiled at my marina?

Prices and pitfalls of hiring a delivery captain? Is it worth it for a 30 ft boat?

No, I can't get the time off now to deliver the boat myself. Although I would love to.
Contact Jon Eisberg, he's a member here, and one of the more competent delivery captains out there. Probably one of the few I'd let deliver my own boat and I am a picky MFer'.. Also don't forget the labor on the other end to remove from trailer, block and stands, re-launch, re-step, tune, etc. etc... Jon I would suspect to be quite a bit less that the 5k plus you're looking at...

Check uship.com its a bidding site that allows haulers to meet your expected price. I had good luck having a boat hauled about 150 miles.

If he does truck the boat will he have to re-align the motor to the prop shaft once the boat is in the water?
This maybe an additional cost that hasn't been considered.

So the quoted cost are 1700 yard and 3000 truck but no recommissioning cost yet. Water route is maybe 5 days, @~$450.00 (captain plus one crew, ref: Yacht Delivery Captain Sailboats Yachts Motoryacht Powerboats Captains Crew Delivery East Coast Caribbean South North Carolina Affordable) = $2250.00.

Me thinks I would look into the water route. Or day hop the boat to Mystic.

Deliver it over a few weekends. You could cover around 150 miles a weekend. Leave you boat in a marina for the week (off season rates are reasonable) take a train or have a friend pick you up and bring you home.
