Best way to deliver a 35-40ft boat from US to Baltic sea

Is there any inexpensive way to deliver the boat from US to Europe?

Define inexpensive? Dockwise does it, last I checked about $20k for a 35' but that was 5 years ago.

Scotty says he'll have the transporter back up any minute now.

Cool Re: Best way to deliver a 35-40ft boat from US to Baltic sea

Yep Indeed define best....... easiest is on one of the two or three companies that ship boats across the pond, but it aint cheap. the cheapest way is to sail it yourself and way more fun. in the middle is a delivery skipper/crew. SO take your pick and good luck.

Re: Best way to deliver a 35-40ft boat from US to Baltic sea

You did not mention if you had the time and/or were experienced enough to sail the boat across yourself.
Your window for an east bound trans-Atlantic is 8 or 9 months away, unless you want to try crossing the north Atlantic in late November or December, not un-doable, but pretty hard core.
A delivery crew would cost at least US$3.00 a mile, perhaps more, and you might find a skipper who'd risk a hurricane season delivery for a bit more $?
That pretty much leaves you with the ship option mentioned above, which, though expensive, is not as much as you might think considering the wear and tear on the boat, sails and gear over a voyage of that length, the insurance for a sail like that and the cost of repatriating the crew, plus the little costs of a long voyage; dockage, visas, consumables, etc.
But, were I 25 years younger....................?

Basically no.

Sailing it over will be expensive on prep and time.

The regular boat movers don;t go to the Baltic.

You could get it shipped as deck cargo in a cradle with the mast down but it is going to be circa 25k$

20 - 25K for a small, 10-15m long deck cargo. Ship brokers talking that such deck cargo should cost abt $5k - $7k over the ocean, the problem is that someone should make a good keel-block and fix the boat securely

If you want to sail this boat on Baltic Sea yourself, it might make sense to sail it there with one more experienced person as crew. If you just want to sell the boat there, it makes more sense to have it shipped. Neither option is going to be 'cheap', but at least you will learn a lot for this money if you decide to sail it there yourself.

It is about impossible to sell a US boat in the Baltic. EU restrictions.
Prices in the Baltic are low, due to the economy.

Consider renting a boat in the Baltic instead?
