It won't fit into a 20 ft shipping container anyway. I'm told that the boat is too big and needs to go into a 40 ft.
This is part of the problem, I was quoted £1700 before I bought the boat and now I own it the quote is £2750. That is just for shipping to Alexandria. I've had another £2500 quoted for handling and transport to Hurghada.
On top of this money there will be import duty. Right now a £10000, 22 year old boat is starting to look really expensive. I may just be better off selling it.
I can tow it myself from Alexandria, it's a long way and the roads are not that good so it needs to be a decent trailer.
It may be cheaper to Tow it right through Europe all the way.
