Anyone ever ship a boat overseas?

I''m intersted in buying a boat that is located in Australia but I live on the East Coast of the US and have not got the time to sail it back. If anyone has info on shipping a boat overseas please help.

Thanks,
Tom

I shipped my boat back from Hawaii for about 3500$ in ''94.

I have some friends who shipped a valiant 32 back from NZ. I think they said the cost was about 10K including having the cradle built.

Cartmanst3-

It isn't very likely that you'll get a response, since the post you're replying to is over SIX YEARS OLD, and the member in question is likely no longer active on the forum. If you want an estimate to ship your boat from the US to Croatia, I would look at Dockwise Yacht Transport.

Also, recommend you read the POST in my signature...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Usually, it happens when a spambot posts a bogus post to the thread and brings it to the "recent posts" queue... Other times, it a newbie poster who doesn't know to check post dates, and other times it people like BF on a bender...

Often it's people doing the "right" thing and checking the archives before posting a question, and as Sailingdog says, they don't notice the dates.
