Boat is a 8,5 m hull with two Suzuki 250.

I will ask XS for an estimated dry weight.

Thatís a beast. A new trailer would be circa £3000, second hand (if you can find one) £1500-£2000. Not sure Iíd want to tow an unknown-un proven trailer with a brand new boat on it, half way across Europe though
Is the boat going to live on a trailer in Sweden or is it staying afloat?

The trailer would only be to roll it in to a container.

And mayby some miles from factory to container.

In Sweden i have a brand new trailer waiting.

Latest update;

Now DSV said yes and gave me a price.

In this case i need to buy the dolly.

Conclusion; It will be double the cost to have it done for me, instead of doing it myself.

And yes, tax, diesel, ferrys, toll fees, extra corona tests etc etc is in the numbers.

😂 Thanks!

Case closed..

I see now that you have a similar boat with a similar setup.

Bet you are happy with it.

I'd be tempted to give it a proper sea trial then just drive it home and make it an adventure. Or at least to Denmark or the South West coast of Sweden.

It's a long way, 2 years ago I was involved in a delivery trip from Helsinki to Southampton in a 33 foot Sargo.

It was a great trip and I enjoyed every bit of it. It was April when we left Helsinki and it was a snowy Saturday morning. We came up Southampton Water on the following Friday evening in glorious sunshine. It was a fabulous trip and my first time in the Batlic, which at times can be very interesting/challenging. It's a big bit of water and we were in a very capable and comfortable boat.

The big difference is, we had somewhere to sleep in comfort.

Weather permitting, Dover to Kiel Canal in one day should be ok, KC does not operate after dark.

From Kiel where would you go, and how long would that leg take?

Nice trip you did.

With a big portion of luck i could have a similar experience.

For me it will be enough to go to The Nederlands or at the max Cuxhaven at KC entry.

Then just put it on my trailer and go home for the 20h service.

In two years i will go KC anyway but in the oposite direction.

Maybe you could come into Harwich as a foot passenger from Holland ,i could if covid rules allow pick you up on my boat on Harwich quay and transport you masked to levington Marina 6 km (google suffolk yacht harbour ) there you could meet xs with your rib ( very short delivery for them and a place they know ) ,all facilities to crane in or use slipway ,then you could fuel up (waterside petrol availiable) ,and sail off back to the hook of holland where your car and trailer is waiting ,never done it myself but less than your service hours !

Hang on, I wouldn't want to cross the North Sea with 2 brand new and not run in engines It's what 200km to Hook of Holland?

You still have the problems of cross border travel with Covid restrictions, and any isolation at landfall in a new country.

I agree with Orwell boy, with the right weather window your looking at 4-5 hours conservatively for the run from uk to Holland. Which should be well within the capability of the boat & a great way to get acquainted with it modern engines dont need babying to run them in & 25 kts average isnt working them hard

Why not get XS to run them in & sea trial the boat before the OP collects? Could also catch any snagging in the process.

XS don't do stuff like that. It's down to the buyer to find any issues, and then take the boat back to them for fixing.

Works really well when the boats 250 miles away without a trailer!


If you want that level of service you need to buy a Ribcraft. And except the long wait for it to be built.

About engines, i think they will be fine.

In just planespeed with just me onboard the load on engines should be low.

About covid, you are perfectly right, this is the main issue.

Even today i can go inside EU if i just transiting and have a fresh negative covidtest.

Its the timing of it all and the rules in the UK thats in the thinkbox now.

Just to highlight, i will NEVER consider something in my travelplan that would be anything close to illegal, in any way.

I just got a new small piece to the puzzle from XS.

Its not a problem for them to have the boat standing at their place as long as i need.

So hypothetically if i save about 1800 gbp on doing it myself, i will wait some weeks extra.

And i really want to do the trip as well..

Would love to meet the XS people.

Ask how secure where there going to keep it is? Will it be in a secure compound or just in the carpark out front of the workshop? Is it covered on their insurance or yours?

Good question, i belive XS will have some interest in it as well.

The final payment will be done on sight, so its in everybodys interest that there is a boat around..
