What are typical transport costs?
Moving boats between different waterways is entirely possible. Craft up to approximately 27ft (max total weight including trailer 3½ tons) can generally be moved by vehicle, trailer and slipping. As a rough guide the cost of moving a 25ft boat from our marina to the Thames would be around £400-£450 excluding slipping/craning fees. (Boat transportation is not a service our company provides, however we have trusted transporters who regularly move boats from our marina.) Larger craft will require a modern method such as a Hiab crane on the back of a flatbed unit. As a rough guide a 30ft boat to the Thames might cost £750-£850 (please note, not all marinas will allow Hiabs to operate on their site and may charge). For larger craft, i.e. over 90 tons in weight, specialist transporters are required.
