But I have heard of some crazy deliveries!

If your heart is set on this, I think the only practical answer is to put her on a truck and ship her somewhere between NC to FL and then hire a delivery crew to take her all the way directly to Barbados. They may have to stop once or twice to refuel. I think, if you mess around with coordinating a pickup in USVI, by the time you pay for dock space, wait for the right weather window, pay your own island hopping fees, etc, you would have been better off paying the extra time to get the job done.

I am afraid that, by the time you add in all the incidentals (rigging, hauling, trucking, food, fuel, probable repairs, fees, etc, etc), this is going to cost much more than you might think. I say over $20k before all is said and done.

Are you sure it is worth dropping this load of cash? Seems you could lease a boat there.

Is the boat in Onterio? Now?

This is getting ridiculous.

I might not be American but I have taken a boat from Lake Michigan to Nova Scotia and that wasn't a short trip. But it was in summer.
No one with a brain will sail it now till next year... May?

So you are restricted to trucking... But the boat is a wide load so it will cost a fortune. Form the tippy top of the USA to the bottom... That's a long way and then to outfit her... But you have been only given alist of the equipment , not the installation cost.... Which will skyrocket if you are not there to supervise.

It's just a flood of tears that will not stop till you are broke.

Sell the damn thing and buy something in the Caribbean. Probably you will be able to buy a Jeneau 36 for the same as you sell a 32 in the USA.

Check Yachtworld.com

I know you reallllly want the boat down there but at some stage you need to think about alternatives.

Finally, the upwind passage to Barbads is NOT a fun happy sail. It non stop 20 knot trade winds right on the nose. With current against you.

Re: Florida to Barbados - How to?

Hi guys,

The boat is in Kingston (ON) . I had a plan to ship her down straight to Barbados through the same company that moved me here a year ago. It fell through. The plan was never to sail her right down. there was always some overland from Kingston to destination "x" and then maybe onto a ship or have her sailed down the rest of the way as I personally dont have the time or experience).

Re: Florida to Barbados - How to?

I just thought of the airfare to send your delivery crew all the way home too. I'm upping my estimate. Sorry.

Lots to consider. I like the Jeanneau in the DR by the way. She looks pretty good.

Re: Florida to Barbados - How to?

Things are looking up! I got a decent quote from Kingston to Florida and got a local sailor who will sail from Florida to Barbados! Might even have her here for the Round Barbados Race on January 21!!!
