Delivery - Chesapeake-Delaware Canal to Pt. Washington, NY

Hello,
Trying to get a rough idea about pricing to have a Rhodes Swiftsure 33 delivered.
I realize there are many variables and flexibility needed as far as scheduling such a delivery.
Any input/interest would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Tripl

Re: Delivery - Chesapeake-Delaware Canal to Pt. Washington, NY

I just did this same delivery last week. C&D Canal to Huntington bay, Long Island.
Delivery was in a very fast 37' boat, took about 40 hours non stop motor sailing all the way.
Including losing some time to repair motor.
The Rhodes Swiftsure's waterline will be around 10 ft. shorter and depending on motor
thinking will not be near same average speed. So figure 3 days not taking in consideration
any problems which could arise. (weather, motor etc.) Anyone worth while will be around $300 a day.
Assuming will be new to you boat, will you have spent some time on shake down cruise, mech. looked over motor?
Does boat have a autopilot? ...and more Questions that will/should be asked of you.

We just went from Annapolis area to Mystic and back. Most of your proposed route.
Your delivery 200 miles or so. At average of 5 knots ....40 hours BUT you have to areas which have current you can’t run against...the Delaware and East River. 3-4 days,
