Every summer comes to an end up in New England. The changing of the leaves and the aroma of pumpkin spice coffee fills the air in the fall. Every boater's worst nightmare. Why lay up your boat for the winter when you can easily take your boat to the south and enjoy a whole winter of boating. Shipping a yacht or boat by truck can cost an arm and a leg when it's all said and done. Boat hauling companies will charge anywhere from $3.00-$4.00 per mile and depending on the beam they charge $0.25-$0.75 extra per mile. Which, averages between $6,000-$10,000 to move a boat by truck from Massachusetts to Florida. Transporting a vessel with a 12'+ beam can be a costly and difficult task. Depending on the size of your vessel, large or small, it's almost always a better option to take the Intracoastal Waterway when transporting your vessel to the south. You can enjoy all of the different ports along the way to your destination. You also have the luxury of meeting a hired captain in different ports along the way without having to endure a the long hours on the boat when in transit. Fuel costs combined with a hired captain usually totals out between $5,500-$7,500. Why not spend the left over money you don't spend on a trucking company and meet your boat in a couple of fun ports? Start planning ahead or better yet hire a captain to plan ahead for you. If you hire a captain to delivery your boat or yacht you can expect that they will put together a detailed voyage plan, which includes fuel cost estimates, docking fee estimates and the dates and times your vessel will be in each port. During the transit you can request to receive real-time locations of your vessel, or you can request to ride along. Either to the first port or for the whole trip. Yacht Captain Solutions provides skilled captains and mates for boat or yacht owners to man their vessel(s).
