Makes you wonder if, by the time you've added all the costs up, it's better to sell the boat here & buy another in Oz. Bearing in mind that they are going to charge you an additional 10% gst on top of the 17.5-20% VAT that you've already paid. By the time youv'e got the boat there it's value has bombed. I've no idea what a similar setup would cost in Oz, so I might be talking bollix as per

hi guys,
Thanks for your replies so far.

Mitch
Doing the same as you going to scrap trailer when it gets to Aus. Only using it to get the boat out there as the trailer is old. Shipping boat in container with all our furniture, will talk to iron chief as he is dealing with our car.

Can anyone out in Aus recommend a good multi-roller trailer without a keel roller.

Moving to the Mornington peninsular Melbourne.

Keith

Most of the Oz trailers seem to be keel roller type although there are a few "roller coaster" type.
I've got a list of manufacturers which I'll post when I get home.
I've narrowed it down to two makes but can't remember the names....
It seems The difficult bit is bringing a uk trailer to Oz and then scrapping it straight away...getting the new trailer to the port to replace the uk one seems to be an issue.
Unfortunately our rib won't fit in a container so it has to RORO....we were told it wouldn't be easy but as an equivalent boat would be $35-40k I will work through the problems...

Dave- we have been planning the move for the last couple of years, I have a Humber 6.5m dive pro which is very much commercial looking. All that is available in oz is family type ribs which have a lot of seating and as Mitch has said the cost is stupid. I originally paid 6000 for it 10 years ago and put a new df140 on it 2 years ago at a cost of 6100. Taking everything into consideration I am still saving a lot of money.
Mitch- the best trailer I have found so far is a dunbier sr6.2-13tb.
Chris- when you come over to visit southern exposure the cost of you accommodation has tripled!!! :-)

Thanks again

Keith

I used to ship Mig fighters in 40' containers. We used to build sleds to mount the parts on and then slide them into the container.(we made a crossmember that fitted across the container and using a snatch block, we could winch them into place). You could always mount the rib tipped on it ear on a sled with the widest section across the tubes sitting diagonally so it fits through the door opening diagonally. That way it could go in a 40' container along with furniture etc in a sealed container. Less chance of pilfering etc? Then buy a trailer out there.

Won't fit in even with tubes deflated?

Door aperture into a 40ft container is 2.28mt, Kestrel's beam is 2.65 inflated.
I've not had chance to fully deflate the tubes but it'll be mighty close to not fitting.
It's also just over 7mts long on the trailer, so it's be a container all to its self.
The import agents are checking costs, but we think RORO is the best option.

You might be surprised. I didn't think I'd get my 7.8m through the gates into the garden (measured it and everything) - but deflating the tubes makes a massive difference. The boat will typically be a tube diameter narrower, so unless you have tiny tubes (less than 40cm dia) then it might fit...

Try these, they are the most helpful of the ones I contacted,

www.mackaytrailers.com
Their roller coaster equivalent is the PU57T-13-M - $6,872.00 – Tandem axle trailer rated to carry 1999kgs (trailer, boat and any other equipment) – Multi Roller Series
It's just under the 2000kg where you need electro-hydraulic brakes.
The PDF attached show some details


Others I contacted were:
www.trailit.com.au
www.easytow.com.au
