Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

Oh, and another thought. A Delivery Captain and crew will want a lot of saftey gear (liferaft , EPRIB, and maybe SSB and /or sat phone to say the least). They will want that boat in tip top shape to make that run, from sails to standing rigging. Again, DOckwise may be the most reasonable way to go.

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

Hi guys, thank you for your messages.
I would be looking at October at the earliest I think anyway.

At this point it is fleeting curiosity, the thought occurs that at the prices for pro delivery or cargo ship delivery..

A better option would be to get my yacht masters between now and then, and get some experience as crew for others and sail back myself.

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

Deck cargo on otherwise standard freighters and bulk carriers may be another, possibly less expensive option, the disadvantage is that they may not be the 'experts' in yacht handling, cradling and support that the Dockwise folks are.

Friends of our moved their Passport 40 from Mexico to Vancouver BC with them (dockwise).. it all worked out quite well, I believe under $20K. They had sailed the trip down, and had no interest in coming back the 'hard way'. Some careful research may well find that the overall costs (ie shipping vs deliver skipper, considering wear/tear/etc) not so very different.

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

As other have said the trip will put a lot of wear and tear on the boat. And that means more money needed to fix things when you get her home. Also, how much will insurance cost for the delivery (assuming you want to insure)? And before you leave, you will probably need to spend some serious money prepping the boat for you trip.

Be sure to add and compare all cost with you various options.
Good Luck

Hello David.

I received your request for a quote via Anglo Pacific.

Below are details on shipping this boat:
∑ Ocean freight from the east coast USA to Southampton if I use the dims of 11.41 x 3.76 x 3.65 Ė about $8675.00
∑ Mast shipped separately at about $860.00
∑ Cradle for the boat - $3500.00
∑ Boat must be loaded on MAFI at the dock at the discretion of the terminal operator. If they have to use a crane, estimate $2,600.00. If they can u se a forklift, estimate $900.00.
∑ Figure on another crane/forklift fee to marry the boat to the cradle.

That is a basic estimate based on the info provided. If I can answer any other questions, please let me know. See attached.

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

I don't know the routes, or weather, but would it be cheaper for him to sail the boat up the coast himself (in good weather windows), then hire a captain to go with him across the north atlantic?

Or better yet, buy a boat in the UK?

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

That is 15k without the cost of taking down the mast (and all the prep) and re-stepping. On DOck wise, you will only sail it onto the ship. THey take care of the rest (well, you should pull down your sails and bimini, but not much moer). No rigger costs or cranes or delivery from there.

Have you tried Dockwise? And more importantly, do you love this boat that much that you coulkd not find one in the UK and save 20 grand?

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

Hi Guys, I have not yet found one for sale in the UK

after many hours of searching the internet for different boats the Pearson 37 looked to be cracking little boat. It will be used as a full time liveaboard, kept on a river over the summer months to be close to family and then sail down to spend the winters in the south of France, Spain, Italy, Greece etc...

I have found what looks to be a very clean example for $60k (approx £37k) and that seems to be a great boat for the money. I guess this is me still doing home-work/feasibility study...

because now $65k is looking like it will be nearer $85 whichever way I go. Apart from if I sailed her back myself.

The other boat I was quite keen is a Hunter Passage 42, but again I have not found one for sale in the UK, but even those for sale in the US are for sale at significantly more than the Pearson.

Haven't looked at Dockwise yet, but will have a nosey shortly.

Re: How long does to sail to the Uk from Florida?

Unless you are a very experienced sailor, IMHO, I would not ever attempt to cross the Atlantic. That is my opinion.

Whilst this thread has grown an idea has developed too, I realised that either employing a professional skip or getting the post shipped with dockwise or anybody else is going to cost... well, lots! And it may actually be wiser to put a chunk of that and invest it in myself instead, on training and experience in order that I would be able to sail the boat back myself.

I have been sailing for many years and at one point I was working as an assistant instructor (dinghies and 27ft keelboats) so i am confident that I am a competent sailor but seaman ships skills and ocean experience is another matter entirely.

All things to think about
