Any one with an idea of how to get a 27 ft. sailboat to the Philippines? or where to buy one there?
Thanks

duke,

Start with the following URLs - there are others I''ll post if I can find them. I know someone who used the SeaLand folks recently with good results. The 3rd URL is a directory. Good luck!

If you had the time, you could always put up a post for a small crew to sail it there or hire a delivery captain and crew. I myself have never sailed there but would possibly be interested in the experience. I do know of other people that have made a temporary career out of doing such a thing.

You'd be hard pressed to find a delivery captain that would deliver a 27' sailboat from the US to the Philippines. Much better off shipping it via Dockwise or better yet, buying it in the area.

What SD said...

While Tania Aebi might give it a shot, I don't think she's available... Maybe Dogsailors?

Hire some Somali pirates to take it there for you. They could keep any spoils they could capture on route and you might not have to pay them, much.
Somali pirates were not such a big issue in 2001.
Tsk, tsk, SD, replying to an 8 year old thread. Throw the dog a bone!
