Anyone tried to squeeze Atlantic 21 into 40ft container

Hi I'm looking into possibilities of moving my Atlantic 21 on a trailer (non road legal) from Poland to Lanzarote. Did anyone tried to squeeze one with deflated tubes into standard 40ft container?? Any advises...
Many thanks in advance
Bart

Here one way of load / unload a RIB on a sea container:

Unless You can roll it in (on the trailer) think You need pretty heavy equipment for the loading. A FlatRack container can be a easier option, at least for loading /unloading part.

Not an Atlantic, but check out this thread

Moved my 4.50 mtr rib from Korea to Lima/Peru by ship inside a 20" container, do you plan to transport rib alone ? sharing with other different goods is other story, wrapping issues.

In my particular case an iron cage was built as there was no trailer, hull was seated on 3 V lower metal supports wrapped in thick foam, overall rib was conveniently carton & plastic wrapped as well, was impecable unpacked after 2 months sitting inside container.

Happy Boating

I have moved my Hurricane 733 from Canada in a 40 tf container with its trailer. I think that the Atlantic is smaller.

I know that the Extreme Sailing Series transport their RIBS in 40ft containers. They have a big mix of boats (as each team has their own) but most were about 6.5/7m and they were just deflated, and wheeled in and out of the containers (and no doubt strapped down to stop them moving.

I guess you'd have to measure it! The photos are taken by phil martin, bowson at the rya loading ribs, containers for intercontinental travel and curtain sider for European travel. They are all VSR 5.8r's.

Thanks for your help. I'm away from home so I can't measure it right now, that's why I've asked here. But it looks like there is a great chance of getting boat in... as long as trailer won't be too wide.
I'll let you know if I'd finally ship her in a container and how it worked.

We shipped a Pacific 22 in a container. Put a load of old mattresses on the floor and pushed in in with a fork lift truck.
