I just moved a 35' (beam of 16') boat from Corpus Christi to North Texas. With permits, mover, escort and overnight fees I ended up paying a little over $6 per mile. not sure if that prices goes down as mileage increases, but I doubt it.

There are a lot of boat haulers out there with the capability to move your boat safely. I once got a bargain price from a SC trucker who specialized in hauling new Benetaus and was delighted to have a backhaul from MA to MD. Put out the word and get multiple quotes. Your local MD boatyards can supply references.

Hauling from California to Maryland

Hello, I would sugget you contact some of the new boat manufacturers and ask if they have anything going out west. I friend of mine contacted Hinkley, found out they were delivering a new picnic boat and the hauler had nothing coming back. Needless to say he got a great rate in coming back. Cheers, KB

Big variables as mentioned. Needing escort vehicles is the big cost add and vary by state. Some states can require the mast to travel on a separate truck, if it's too long. $10k is probably the bare minimum for the empty return trips without many oversized premiums. Don't be surprised to see $25k estimates.

Additional costs to be considered are the haul/launch at each end and cost to remove and replace the keel, if necessary for height.

I sent my Hinckley Pilot up to Maine from New York this winter for repairs. Hinckley recommended MDI Yacht Transport as a reliable hauler (http://www.murphyyachttransport.com). Are you looking at that pretty white one in SF ?! I'll bet you are

I do know the biggest variable affecting cost is HEIGHT. A friend trucked a SWAN 48 from Lauderdale to Chicago several years ago and it was just over $8K. And then back to FLA. I know the HEIGHT of that boat was over 13'

The Pilot 35 being less than 10' in beam and probably only about 10' high will be a lot easier to move. Still not sure I want to do this right now.

I got a quote last year for my son's boat (Bayfield 36, 41' LOA) to go from NC to Seattle, about $9500 not including costs at each end. Some quotes he got were as high as 12K.
