Shipping Costs to Australia
 
Anyone have an idea what shipping would cost from California to Victoria, Australia for a 21' boat with trailer?

TIA

Check on www.uship.com

The plus side of the boat being in California, the cost to get the boat to port will be significantly less than any other location

It's about $5,000 in shipping alone. But there are other costs associated with bringing the boat into Australia once it arrives (something like $5 - $6k in taxes, duties, etc.).

Ixfe is correct. Just hot a quote of $5300 from the west coast. I can refer you to the shipperif you want. I have used them before and worked out good

We have used primary freight for all of the boats we have exported over, primaryfreight.com, and have had great service everytime!

Here is the company I have used a few times... They are a broker and can handle it all for you. They don't put it in a container. They trailer it into the belly of a boat and it goes with all the new cars that are being exported to China and Australia. Probably best for you to deliver the boat to port. The boat needs to be winterized, tower folded, guide poles off, and shrinkwrapped.

I don't know the costs but I was working with a guy from Australia who wanted to purchase my boat. All I can say is that shipping by container will DRAMATICALLY impact which boat you can buy. If there is another option I would explore it in terms of having some different options.
