Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

Hello, I'm, not sure if this is the right place... but I'd love some advice My father is currently in Afghanistan and (very) recently purchased a 32' Dreadnought; he has plans to take care of "maintenance" upon his retirement this coming October, and then fulfill some bucket-list items on the seas.
The boat is currently located approximately 60 miles away and he is planning on having it transported to a warehouse on his property. I want to make sure that he isn't taken advantage of due to his lack of proximity and my complete lack of knowledge. Below are the #'s that the marina has quoted to move the boat inland 60miles, do they sound right? (The marina owner has offered to store the boat at a rate of $500/mo if he chooses not to transport the boat right now.)

Thanks so much for any advice that you can provide, I sincerely appreciate it

Haul and block boat $285
Prep and unstep mast $600
Remove deck gear $800
Jack stands $1,200
Load boat and gear on trailer $500
Transport $2,000

That totals out around $5,400

Re: Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

Seems a bit pricy. Where are you located. If I recall correctly I moved has my boat trucked from land and launched with the mast stepped etc (about 35 miles) and it cost around $1200 total. You might be able to do some of the work like remove the deck gear and do some of the prep.

I would see if you can aquire some new jack stands on your own. check into these ones Brownell Boats Stands For Sailboats


I would contact a company the specialized in moving boats for a second quote

Re: Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

I understand all the costs except for the $2,000 for a 60 mile trip, that seems very expensive.

Agreed... deduct the $2K and add back a basic hauling mileage charge, say maybe $3-4/mile?? All the work is in loading and unloading.. how is the 'drive' worth two grand?? Not a big enough load to need a pilot car is it (I gather rules vary by state - having to pay two drivers would add up...)

Re: Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

Same here the 2k for moving sounds steep and I move my boat two times a year

My trucker is a sailboat mover and does have a hydraulic sailboat trailer that allows him to back in my driveway and place the boat on jackstands in about 1 hour if he is having a slow day

The normal sailboat transport truck is lowboy trailer with no method to unload the boat at the final destination IF this is the case how is it getting unloaded as it could have a great deal to do with what seems a very high price



For example he could have a second crane meeting him at the delivery spot and we need to know details like this

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

Hello all, thanks so much for all of the info! Coming from a limited knowledge base, these are new "waters" for me, and the help is very much appreciated We're located outside of Corvallis Oregon, and the boat would be transported from Toledo Oregon, I think the total distance is 56miles.

Re: Transporting a 32' Dreadnought

10 years ago I had a 43' sailboat trucked from S.F. to Vancouver for $3700. I know that prices have gone up but.....

Call Dudley Transport - they're in Wa. but they run up & down the coast - they did mine and were great.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
