Last year I towed my RIB from the UK to Lagos, Portugal.

Got the ferry from Portsmouth - Santander and drove the rest

Hello Willfinch,

thanks for your post...we are considering this but in our case we have to drive both ways...so we are trying to find a cheaper and more efficient solution if this is possible...

regards,

Vitor

Ah fair enough, we left the car and boat down there.

Good luck.

Will

Many Ferry companies will take a boat and trailer without a car (for a fee, of course) so if you can arrange delivery to the UK ferry port, then you could collect it in Spain.

Another way is to have it brought back by a Spanish truck returning from the UK with no load. I know someone who did this from the UK to Ireland and it was very reasonable, cost-wise, as the truck would have been earning nothing otherwise.
