Here's a quote I got a couple years ago for going the other way. The 'people' costs didn't really bother me on this and another one I got, but the Food $ quote I got from someone in the Northeast was so absurd I couldn't help laughing at the guy over the phone. I ended up shipping the c320 to Annapolis by truck and my wife and I did the daytime motorsails to bring the NC to RI.

This is to provide you with a written confirmation of the verbal quote I gave you a few minutes ago. This estimate is for the delivery of a Catalina 320 from Wickford, RI to Annapolis, MD and the return delivery of a Nauticat 33 from Annapolis, MD to Wickford, RI. Departure from Wickford would be on September 8, 2005. Estimated expenses are outlined below:
EXPENSE DESCRIPTION $ AMOUNT
Captain's fee ($300/day x 10 days) $ 3,000
Round trip airfare FL to Providence, RI 400
ESTIMATED TOTAL $ 3,400
Since the owner will be on board, this estimate assumes he will cover the costs of fuel, provisions and ground transportation. So those expenses are excluded from the estimate. The estimate assumes 3-4 days each way plus two days transportation to and from RI.
As always, we do require a 50% deposit ($ 1,700) in order to secure dates on Mats delivery calendar. Once we receive the deposit check, those dates are reserved for you. The final invoice will reflect only the actual time and expenses necessary to complete the delivery. Please refer the owner to the web site below regarding that policy if he has any questions. Feel free to call either my home or cell phone if you have any questions.
