Transport cost for 5,5 m(+-)RIB
Might be that its due to too much of the sun...., or reading this great forum, but strongly considering to purchase a RIB. Supply is so much better in UK than here, as it will be a used one(maybe even a "project" boat), most likely will purchase it from UK. Now starting the project by collecting freight information.
Will try to find a setup that will weight just bellow 750 KG including trailer, thus estimating the max lenght of boat will be 5.5 m +-( considering SR 5.4, Humber 5.5, Delta 5.5 and similar), with or without engine. That is the target size anyway, even if maybe need to use a braked trailer(+750 kg). In most cases seams like boats are sold with the trailer so expect the transport "cradle" to be a trailer. Another option is a container, but expect that as "ro ro"on tailer it will be cheaper. In many cases its cheaper to send 20 or 40 ft box to Far East than to intra european destination.....
Obviously at this stage don't know from where in UK but destination will be Helsinki. Living close to the new port so can pick up from there.
I rememember(?) from old posts that some members are involved in boat transportation but any ideas/ contact details are more than welcomed. Thanks in advance!
fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway
