Trucking H-28 New England

Does anyone have any recommendations for getting a boat shipped from Maine to CT.?

I got a quote of 2 grand - seemed a bit high to me.

Any input or recommendations would be appreciated.

Amy

Re: Trucking H-28 New England

I got a quote this spring of $718 to move a Catalina 25 49 miles inside NH. I'm sure a lot of the work is in the picking up and putting down, so $2k to go several hundred miles more doesn't seem that high.

A C-25 is only 4500lbs; I know the C-27 is like 6500; a 28 footer? 7,000? If the H is for Hinkley or Heershoff (spelling; I know!) it's likely much heavier per foot than the Catalina boats and their peers.

My quote is about $15/mile; at that rate, even 200 miles would be $3k.

Re: Trucking H-28 New England

amy,

I'm paying $3k to have an 83 Watkins W-27 hauled from Greenwich, NJ., to Chicago, Il. (The boat weighs 7500#).

As CarbonSink notes, a decent chunk of time is involved in constructing a temporary "cradle", loading, and lashing down the boat.

Btw, the W-27 has a 10ft. beam, making it an "oversized" load...my quote included a couple of hundred bucks for permits, although its not large enough to require escort/flag vehicles.

Re: Trucking H-28 New England

I used a hauler with a Hydraulic Trailer type rig to move my 10,600 lb, 12 foot beam, 38 footer from Maine to Maryland about 10 years ago. The outfit was based near Booth Bay Harbor but I cannot recall thier name. Their price was good, their service was great.

$2000 for that short distance sounds high to me.

In my case there was a big savings by allowing them some schedule flexibility so they could find a boat for the return trip.

Re: Trucking H-28 New England

Check these folks out

Maritime Boat Transport and Marina Boatyard Equipment

It cost me $700.00 from Hyanis to western NH so 2K from CT-ME doesn't sound out of whack but I had to move the boat within 1 week & was more than happy to be accomadated.

If the boat can sit where it's at, try to be a backhaul so the truck isn't heading home empty, might work out in your favor

Jeff back then the price of Fuel and everything Else was a lot less, also keep in mind the Short run is the one that cost more, its just a fact in the pricing of any haul.

$2K , they secure , haul and they have insurance on the boat, in this case also getting the proper permit's.

If you get a hauler from there make sure they are a Licensed carrier, not everyone that pulls loads from there are so do your home work also make sure they get the proper permits, a lack of permits might find the truck, and boat getting impounded.

Best to find a Boat hauler and use them, better to pay full price and get proper service then to get cut-rate service for a few hundred less.
In the End you want to sleep well.

Re: Trucking H-28 New England

I ended up using Carthage Marine Transport. They were great to work with, and knew their stuff.....maybe not the rock bottom cheapest, but ya get what you pay for, in most cases. Their phone # is 417-246-1203.
