Shipping boats

Ok, who has shipped boats across the country? What company? Approximate cost for 1000 etc.

I shipped a pontoon from Michigan to North Carolina last year. I used U-ship.com, and then validated the carrier before I selected. They picked my boat at the ramp in Michigan and two days later they dropped in the lake in NC. Process was great, but that was a pontoon and not my mastercraft.

Shipped my boat from Tampa Florida to Michigan when I bought it. Talk to the dealer where you're shipping from. Depends on your timing but in my case I wasn't in a rush . Thedealer in Florida received a shipment of boats from MC. They're shipper was going back to Venore empty and took my boat at a very low cost. Then when my local dealer in MI got there shipment from MC, my boat was on that shipment delivered to local MC dealer. I spent a week in a fenced lot in Venore before it was picked up for the ride to MI.

Sounds like you found a new boat? What did you decide to get?

I turned to the dark side haha. I got a SAN 210, 2012. Has all the goodies.

For the price I got I couldn't justify staying with MC. I really wanted a 2 point tower and that alone was 5 to 10k more in similar models.

Very Nice Bandit628!!! I like the seating setup on that boat. I really wish we could wake surf on our lake. Near future, we might have to switch it up with something like that and start going back to Monroe!?!?!

Nice boat!!!!

Post some pics when you get her home!
