Best way of getting a boat down to the Med

I am trying to way up the cost of getting a rib (785 Ribeye) down to Mallorca.
Is it best to have it towed or shipped?
Does anyone have any experience of this and/or approximate costs

I have transported numerous boats to Mallorca over the years. If you drop me an email to info@boat-transportation.co.uk with full details I would be happy to give you a quote.

Give the Ribeye to the Sea Scouts to make rafts out of and buy a proper rib in Mallorca.

Used to tow my boat down to Menorca every summer. Its an easy drive over 2 days with a sleep on the boat in a rest area on the autoroute.

Easiest route is channel tunnel, then straight to Barcelona and catch the Balearia ferry. Its around 1k on the ferry (1 way, 30ft trailer) and about 900 miles from Calais.

Probably would be, but its a bugger trying to squeeze a 25ft boat into the overhead locker
